I'm a very reasonable and forgiving person but this was just too much. Main concerns: - As a solo female traveller I got stuck in a room with 5 non-english speaking guys who were pretty much nocturnal. Their stuff was everywhere, including on my bed when I arrived. Not to mention the women's underwear hanging from the mirror (...classy). When... More

Nice hostel, with a cozy atmosphere and very helpful staff. My friend and I only stayed there for one night, but we both feel that we got our money worth. Not the best hostel I've ever stayed at social vice, but definitely not the worst either. I'd recommend it to a friend.

I spent 7 days in El Misti House during Carnaval 2014 and I had a great time! The hostel is very easily located just minutes walk to the beach, and on a nice bit of Copacabana, where there are few shops, cafes, and places to eat. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, which made a big difference! I loved... More

Although I did meet some wonderful fellow travellers at el misti, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired! Also worse yet... Being English I almost felt resented upon? A few of my co travellers I met also felt the same dividing us within the hostel... Also please take extra security precautions as the location about 20mins from the beach... More

Hostel with great atmosphere, easy to make new friends. It is very small with limited common space, which on the other hand helps with the integration. Excellent location in Copacabana, only 5 min walking to the beach. The best breakfast I ve seen in hostel so far, but served only from 8 -10, ( watch your time, as if you... More

Great starting place to meet travelers and get a free pickup from the airport! Nightly dinners and social environment. Good for the single backpacker. Close to many beaches and close to public transport.

The staff were always helpful and the Barman who arrived each night made great cheap drinks, although no drinks were allowed past 10 30. Communal area was a bit small considering the number of beds in the hostel and rooms felt a little cramped for space with beds piled 3 high and not that comfortable. Adequate for a nights stay...
