El misti rooms has great facilities and is very well located, super close to the beach, a bunch of bars and touristic places. The high point though is definitely the staff! Everyone is super friendly and helpful and I felt welcomed at all times. I highly recommend it!

I arrived to El misti alone, and was welcomed so warmly by the staff! The area of the hostel felt very safe, and was only 5 minutes from the beach. Great common area, amazing staff that makes all the guests party together every night. There is a chef that makes breakfast and dinner each day(cost 15-20 real), and it is...

Very easy to find and arrive, plenty of hot water showers inside, 5 minutes walk from the beach and a worldwide variety of people! Breakfast is very rich but not included in the price. You can book tours and transfers from 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.
