Reviewed February 13, 2014

This is a small hostel and at first I wasn´t too sure however after the first night we LOVED it!!! They have created a perfect atmosphere, really relaxed vibes and awesome staff, makes a perfect place to meet new people and make friends. We extended our stay here :) I highly recommend staying here Friday nights as it is near to Lapa for the nightlife and Jorge I hate to admit it makes a really good caiprihina (which your first one is free). Beds are new, linen is clean bathrooms are spotless and breakfast is delicious. They have a resident cat called Zebra Cat who owns the house and a blow up swimming pool on the rooftop terrace. Basically you should all be staying here now!!!

Overall we had a really comfortable stay of 4 nights at Santa Mix, it's got a relaxed vibe. We stayed in the 4 bed dorm. Rooms were excellent, with clean sheets, comfy mattress, big lockers, fans and air-conditioning. I had the best sleeps I've had in months. Breakfast good and there is a small kitchen to be able to cook. Location was perfect for us, being a 5-10 minute walk to the metro which would take us downtown or to the beach. Bus to Pao do Azucar is close too. The only slight detraction for us was that the common area could quickly be overtaken by one person (usually one of the staff members). We also tried to book a transfer to Paraty through the hostel but despite giving 2 days notice after the original request was made one of the staff didn't follow it up for us the following day (we asked twice) and there wasnt any space for us. It actually worked out better for us but it was a little annoying that this one member of staff didn't check or couldn't be bothered to tell us it was full.

We felt really comfortable here. The staff is very friendly and there's a homelike nice atmosphere, as there are just 3 dorms. Facilities were good and everything was clean. Would def stay here again although the location is neither close to the beach nor to the centre. But Santa Teresa is nice too. Ah and btw, the Zebracat who is living there, is awesome. Thanks for that nice stay guys!
