I stayed at El Misti Rooms in Rio, where I had a great experience so I wanted to try the El Misti in Ilha Grande as well. Although I had a reservation and arrived there early in the morning, they could not give me a bed till 7:30 in the evening. I was really tired and all I wanted was... More

This is honestly the worst place I have ever seen. As soon as I entered the hostel I was met with a rude man working behind the desk, who wouldn't even lift it head to greet me. We were simply handed our forms and not one welcoming word was spoken to us. We were brought to our room and immediately... More

This was vile, rooms were so dirty with bugs on the beds and staff were rude and unhelpful. Receptionist told us on two occasions a bed was free so we put our bedding on and returned to the room and on both occasions our bedding had been chucked off by someone. I didn't meet on person whilst I was there... More

Having stayed in many hostels, good and bad, I can honestly say that this one takes the prize for the worst. Filthy room, terrible service (2 hour wait to check in), bare wires hanging out including in the showers, blood on the mattress and dogs coming in from the street... Although there isn't much choice of accommodation in Ilha Grande,... More

I've been traveling a lot and I mainly stay in hostels (often cheaper than this one by the way) so I know what kind of basic comfort I should expect. But this El Misti Suites is one of the top 3 of the worst I've seen. Rats in the walls you can hear fighting all night long, dirty bed linen... More

I only stayed at the El Misti for one night, but I wished I could have stayed longer. Very friendly people (both personnel as people staying at the Hostel), nice atmosphere. Liked the hostel as soon as walked in. Rooms were nice and breakfast delicious. I hope I get to back there one day.

I'm firstly going to say what I liked about the hostel, because I think it's unfair to only mention the bad! Nice common room area, and the view from the terrace is sweet. The hostel cat is also a plus in my opinion and you won't go hungry with the breakfast. Good selection of everything! Unfortunately all of his is... More
