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.

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
