Went with a friend to Ilha Grande in the end of February, during the weekdays of the last week of the month, in order to get the island a bit more empty than normal. My friend had reserved one of the Pousadas of Ilha, Lonier Inn, but she couldn't reserve for the all days we were planning to stay there.... More

We went in person, three days before our reservation, to cancel as we had been forced to change plans. This was not possible... the staff were not accommodating and the manager totally ignored us. Not impressed.

Would agree that the rooms aren't the best but by far one of the funnest places I've stayed in. The island itself is just magical and staying here was petty awesome always people Hanging out having fun would definitely recommend it. Wifi isn't the best but you're not going to find great service anywhere win the island which shouldn't matter... More

Maybe the rooms where not the best ones i've seen but what do you need that for if you are probably going to share the best time of your trip with the misti family. Amazing breakfast and a great common room where you are probably going to meet great people. Staff are incredibly friendly and they make sure you spent... More

Our stay at this hostel was relaxing. They provided good breakfast and good internet connection. Kitchen facilities were also made available to guests. Downside is, the room can be a bit crowded and the sheets were a bit dirty but overall, we did have a good stay. When in Ilha Grande, it is recommended to stay at El Misti hostel.

Good hostel, people who work there are very nice, it's clean and the hostel is a good place to chill when you're not somewhere in the island. This is not expensive and there is a breakfast included. I recommend!

El misti has a nice atmosphere, helpful staff and small communal area. Not that sociable/easy to meet people but it is situated in the centre of the main area, lots of bars and restaurants surround it so plenty to do! Beds aren't that comfy and get cold at night, bathrooms aren't too clean either but can't complain about the warm... More
