El Misti is one of the most amazing hostel ever. The positive environment that you will find is unique, expecially thanks to the people working there. Is very close to the beautiful beach of Copacabana and is located right in front of the metro station. If you want to make your staying unforgettable, I recommend you to come here.

We stayed at El Misti during Carnivale 2015 and had an amazing time. The staff were all so helpful and went out of there way to make our stay memorable. Great party hostel, fantastic atmosphere and people. The breakfast was great, the rooms are basic but comfortable. Great location, directly opposite the metro.

The staff here are all really friendly, and all speak Portuguese, Spanish and English fluently. Plus they're always helpful, and can give you info on all the bus routes, and what to do in the city. I went with two friends, and we spent the first night in the 15 person dorm (with both genders). Admittedly, it felt very cramped... More

El Misti was a very reasonable option for our stay in Rio. My husband and I were on a budget and decided to rent two beds in a nine bed room. My first impression was that this place was a little on the gross side...but after a few nights I began to like it. The room was air conditioned, although... More

I've stayed a couple of nights at El Misti Hostel in Rio. It was ok, but not more. The staff was not really helpful when booking any trips or trying to find some information. The rooms are very very small, almost no space to store luggage, lockers are two small and below the bed, so not very nice for the... More

I stayed here for 5 nights with a friend. We tried to spend as little time as possible in the noisy, smelly, unfriendly, overcrowded hostel.
