Such a cozy hostel with a small pool, which unfortunately was quite filthy actually. Staff did not speak much English and once it took Them at least 5 minutes to let us in from the street (dont know why the receptionist was not at the reception)... Breakfast was ok when there actually was Anything left - when we asked for more Cheese the staff Said that there was not Anything left, and at that point they had only been serving breakfast for one hour. But it was an ok hostel.
It was actually called El Misti Yellow Hostel & Pousada in Buzios. If you love getting bitten by mosquitos then this is the place for you. In the common area, the mosquitos feast on your legs and feet and during breakfast they swarm over the food making it oh so appetizing. At night, I had to sleep with the covers over my head, tucking the sheets underneath my body making it air tight. In the middle of the night, the power goes off which killed the fan. Sweet. TERRIBLE WI-FI. Get your tent ready

The worst hostel ever. Even though it has a good location and a nice pool, the place is very dirty, breakfast is poor and the staff do not know how to run a hostel. It took more than 1 hour to check in and they were lost,
I was shocked when I saw the room that I would stay, no window, humid and one fan for 9 bunk beds. The bathroom was disgusting and full of mold. We had to share two bathrooms with more than 20 people. I cannot belive that is possible to stay at this place in the summer, its inhuman. The breakfast was served in small table and you had to fight for a piece of bread. The staff seemed to be lost and could not handle some problems. Even though the pool was cool, I would never stay at this place again
The place, the peolple, the service, the atmosphere, all in the misti buzios was incledible! Looking foward to return next year! We spent a wonderfull time, thanks for all!
O ATENDIMENTO DAS RECEPCIONISTAS FOI SATISFATÓRIO, ELAS FORAM ATENCIOSAS, ENTRETANTO OS LENÇOIS ESTAVAM MOFOS, SUJOS MESMO, ATÉ COM PEDAÇOS DE SABÃO. SOLICITAMOS QUE TROCASSEM E ELA TROCOU O KIT. REALMENTE ACHEI MEIO SUJO O HOSTEL. ESSA NORMA DE TERMOS QUE DEPOSITAR 50% DO VALOR DA RESERVA ANTECIPADAMENTE ACHEI RIDICULO, POIS VIAJAMOS PARA EUROPA RESERVANDO PELO SITE E NAO PRECISAMOS DEPOSITAR NADA, SOMENTE OS 10% DO SITE....
The staff were uninterested and not friendly. No one spoke english. No lockers for valuables in dorm rooms. The rubbish bins were overflowing when i arrived even though nobody was staying there. They advertise bike rental and buggy rental but they offer nothing and direct you to another company. I will not stay there again.
Very nice poussada a bit outside the center. Very good breakfast with fresh orange juice. Cool Staff Weak point would be a bit of humidity in the room and plugs burn down the charger
el lugar es ta bien ubicado, buen desayuno solo que staff a veces no es muy amable
Very good hostel/ pousada, breakfast was very good. The hostel is clean, only the staff cannot give that much information about busses and about activities in and around Buzios.
Excelente hostal y posada. Estuve en las suites con baño privado y genial, el aire acondicionado quizas no es el mejor, pero no es para nada un problema. La piscina increible, lo mismo que el staff y el desayuno, volveria y lo recomendaria de todas maneras. Very good hostel and pousada, i was in a private suite with bath and everything were cool!. Everyday somebody went to clean, air machine is not very good, but is not a problem. Breakfast very good! and pool amazing. I will come back again!

Un lugar realmente encantador, limpio y seguro, con personal de primera, si bien su ubicacion no es tan cercana al centro, el lugar realmente vale la pena, fue realmente un agrado estar ahí.
I really really loved the Misti!!! The guests were great and the staff was friendly! They just need another bathroom and to clean them more often!!! There were also lots of ants in our beds!!
Good atmosphere,pool,friendly staff & excellent breakfast. Little distance from town but worth the walk. Can recommend.
great enviroment, nice recepcionist , excelent breakfast
Adoramos o local... Fomos muito bem atendidos e o staff é nota 10! A piscina então, sem comentários, meravilhosa! Com certeza voltaremos!
Unfriendly Staff, and too far from any supermarket, restaurant or beach... wi-fi didn't work most of the time, and if you wanna use internet, then you have to pay...
The staff was great and the hostel was nice. The breakfast was awesome with fresh juice, ham and cheese and fresh fruit. The only downside was they were the only hostel I stayed at in South America that charged for the internet (it was expensive too) and they were super strict about bringing alcohol in (while there bar wasn't very fun).
