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

The staff are very friendly and helpful...and some of them came out with us on a few of the nights. The dinner served each night was really good and cheap enough.... 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. The rooms were so overcrowded that there wasn't even space to open the lockers provided . The beds were tightly packed together and the room slept 10 although there should have been max 6 as...

I stayed in total one week and a half. The offered transfer from the terminal worked well, but better ask for it at least one day in advance. Location is really good. In front of the Metro station. One block away from a supermarket and some blocks from Copacabana Beach. Some people thought the rooms were to small, but I... More

Breakfast with fresh fruit and juice always a bonus!. Good communal areas. Friendly and helpful staff. Lot of tours and activities which staff will help to organise. Only a 10min walk from Copacabana. Metro across the street, close to supermakets, ATMs - very central location.
