One of the best hostels I´ve ever stayed. The location is great, everything is kept clean, rooms are big and they have good loockers,breakfast is awesome and they have the best staff working in the hostel, Juan, Mile, Semanj and Paul were legend helping me out with everything. I went there for only two night and i ended up staying 9 nights!

Sin duda uno de los mejores hostels en Brasil. Esta ubicado cerca de todas las atracciones, muy cerca de las playas, cerca del supermercado y en frente del metro. El staff esta muy bien informado sobre todas las actividades, me ayudaron mucho con mi viaje en brazil. El desayuno tiene de todo, los cuartos son amplios y limpios. Recomiendo totalmente este hostel y voy a volver en cualquier momento. Saludos a Juan, Mile, Semaj y Paul.

Great hostel with a great staff and atmosphere. Great location right next to Copacabana Beach and Ipanema Beach. 24 hour security and service oriented staff. Clean rooms and great kitchen with possibility to cook your own food. Amazing breakfast and cheap dinner option every night. Overall, a great hostel experience!

The location is great, its close to all the main attractions, opposite the metro station, 4 blocks away from Copacabana Beach, theres a super market just around the corner. The staff is always willing to help you out with all your questions, they also help you out with your trip around Brazil and South America. Breakfast is good, the toilets are kept clean, rooms are spacious, and there are lockers where you can save your things. I would totally recomend this hostel.

I stayed in the only female room during the world cup, which was a closet. They decided to shove all 8 girls in a tiny room. It was very tiny and the guys next to us had a spacious room with their own bathroom and they would go to the main bathrooms to stink them up. I would go back only if it was the last resort.

One of the best hostels so far in south america. The staff is very hepful, the rooms and toilets are clean, breakfast is great. I would totally come back again. Best hostel to meet people, the common area is always full of travellers , the wifi worked really well. Theres always something going on in this hostel, you will always have something to do. An advice, get the dinner at the hostel, every night they have a different menu made by a chef, for only 15 reais you can eat all you want.

I really enjoyed my stay at El Misti Rio Hostel. They have a great location in Copacabana, just a few blocks from the beach. The hostel has a great ambiance in the common areas. They play good music and have a nice and comfortable hang out area with couches, free wifi, computers, and a small bar. The staff was friendly and helpful with any questions I had about the area and excursions in the city. The beds were comfortable and the rooms are air conditioned. There is free breakfast!

Security: Large lockers, gate with a buzzer Location: right opposite the metro. Short walk to Copacabana Staff: friendly but just people working for a big chain of hostels so different to staying somewhere family run etc Atmosphere: not much space for the number of people. No real outside space. No chilling space. You´re either in the kitchen or the bar. Value for money: you´re paying for the location. Facilities: good breakfast, small bathrooms, 2 computers with internet, kitchen ok

The 15 people room, it is horrible! It is impossible to open the suitcase! The bathroom was totally dirty. I will never come back and I will not recommend this hostel

El Misti was incredible! Made my brother and I's stay for carnival unforgettable! The location is awesome...short walk to the beach and literally right across the street from the metro, a hospital, and a police station. The staff was super friendly and helpful with any info we needed and Paul the bartender was amazing...he made every night at the hostel tons of fun! Met a lot of great people here and when i come back to Rio I will absolutely be staying here again.
