Just fun here! It is about a 4 minute walk to the beach of copacabana, and easy to get to supermarkets, buses, metro, shops and restaurants. There are many tourism opportunities posted around the hostel, so we took them and had a great time! Friendly and chill staff, and clean bathrooms. Had a great weekend!

Lovely place to stay! This the second time I stay in El Misti, first was in Botafogo during Carnival and now in Copacabana; I still have more Mistis to visit! 😊 The staff is very warm and sociable! And the chef cooks lovely meals, mostly the cakes during breakfast! ❤ I would definitely recommend it!

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
