"Dear… All your comments have been passed to the El Misti team. Make sure that on your next visit, problems will be already solved. Kind regards Management "


Nothing special. They seem messy but are friendly. Good location but wasn't so so clean in the bathrooms. Maybe because I arrived after Carnaval.

"Dear… First of all allow me to thank you for choosing El Misti Hostels as host of your recent vacation. We are glad to know we provided you a relaxing experience, highlighted by our facilities and the excellent service offered by our attentive staff. We look forward to welcome you soon. Kind regards, Management "


staff: unfriendly, arrogant, unprofessional, chaotic place: dirty, tiny, expensive breakfast, dinner, drinks: good Big thanks to Hugo who made the stay bearable!


Great location in Rio. Very accommodating staff. Space in Rio, granted, is at a premium, however, I though the bathroom on 2nd floor was too small. Would stay here again except for during inflated price periods such as during Carnival and New Year's.


Great atmosphere:) Roberto was amazing, really helpful and always with smile on his face . Free walking tour to Fawela with Luis was one of the best tours I have been on. I recommend this hostel to anybody who is traveling alone, good place to met people.


Great hostel! Great staff, great location, great breakfast (the juices they serve are delicious!). The atmosphere is great, very fun hostel, and it's very easy to meet new people.


Our stay was ruined by Sofia, whom failed to arrange our airport pickup upon arrival and departure as requested. When we arrived, Sofia was working the desk and asked if we would wait 5 minutes to be checked in because her shift was almost over and her relief would take over in a few minutes... The next morning she promised she would have our transport to the airport at 1730, to no surprise at 1730 there was nothing arranged. Last night in brazil was ruined by one individual.


Wifi was pretty slow get up early to get breakfast some staff are really good
