Bring earplugs and sanitizer (you should have those at any hostel by the way) and you will find an excellent place to start a trip and get to... More

According to the hostel's policy, the pick-up must be booked 48 hours before. I did it 30 hours before, and could not get the free pick-up. After that I asked if we could get a... More

I had a wonderful time staying at el misti. I met great people staying there. The hostel has a well equipped kitchen, a great terace where you can make a bbq if you want to. There´s also a bar which makes meeting people way too easy. Good music at the reception.

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.
