We were at El Misti for two nights. The dorm room was small but the beds were comfortable. Individual lockers under the beds were convenient, and the linen provided was clean. Bathroom was close to the room, so that was great. Camilio and Roberto and the other staff were all very nice and super helpful. On reaching, we got free... More

The hostel is not the cleanest I've seen and the bunk bed with three beds each were rather uncomfortable, but it is located in the middle of Copacabana, very close both to the beach and to the subway station Siqueira Campos and several bus stops. The area also looks very safe at night. I appreciated the cheerful atmosphere, the friendly... More

el misti was by far the worst and at the same time most expensive hostel I ever stayed in.it is sad that sometimes the word hostel, lacking a precise definition allows people like these to charge you such for a hideous experience. the place is like a labyrinth, no sun at all, full of intricate hallways and small steps. security...

It was the worst hostel I have ever been. Overcrowded! Some of the staff were nice but in general I did not like their behavior. They did not even know the historic places of the city and their information even about the touristic places was not enough. I never recommend this place to anybody.

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.
