This hostel is a great place to stay, the best deal in Rio. All of the staff are extremely friendly and accomodating. The girls are constantly cleaning the place. The chef, Luis, makes delicous food, and its all you can eat, so you really cant find a better deal in Rio for the price! The rooms are nice, most have... More

We stayed in a group of three for five nights. Since it was a week before carnival we knew to book in advance so was able to snatch a private triple. However there is usually always a spare bed somewhere. The place was clean and all but one (unfortunately) of the staff members was friendly and helpful. The breakfast is... More

I loved El Misti. A hostel where everyone becomes friends in a day and then it is time to head to the beach in a group because well ´happiness is best shared´. A short walk to the beach, ATMs and shops nearby, a good common area with comfortable lounges and good dinners with so much food that I was full... More

The hostel is located within easy access to Copacabana, and just right next to Sao Lucas hospital, which maybe helpful. The staff is helpful, but messed up with my favela tour which I managed to book through another hostel. I booked single room, which was OK, the bathrooms are shared, but clean and not overcrowded. The breakfast is good. Overall... More

My friends and I arrived and the receptionist just received us with this words: "Wait there please". The staff is just a group of friends, who do not come to talk with you, to get acquainted... Rooms are small, not even space to open the locker. Toilets are dirty, shower water is hot and impossible to adjust. Fortunately, there's a... More

Its main value is the proximity to the beach. It's very well located, safe and with good access. The hostel is simple. Cozy if travelling on a budget but don't expect to much. I would say it's ideal if you will be 2 or 3 nights and don't spend to much or if you are on a budget. Good: -... More
