Really nice hostel located in the quater "Rio Vermelho", famous for its bars (quite safe at night). The breakfast is really rich (fruit,bread,cheese,ham...). The Cleanliness was normal for a hostel, they had a daily cleaner and it was o.k., even though I can imagine that they need to clean more if there are more people reserving a room. The staff was really friendly and helpful. There are lockers, but you need to bring your OWN LOCK. Summary: Good service at an amazing price :)

Bathrooms are poor - the water was turned off , we had to ask a few times with the result that the water was now running constantly. the dorm of 12 smelled horribly toxic, so we changed for another room where the ac was leaking and weted my backpack and my sleeping bag (they waited again 15 min. to show up). in the end we got a cheaper price beacuse of those problems, which was ok, but than when we asked for a taxi they "sold" us their driver who charged us double of the regular price!


Very friendly staff but extremely poor and dirty facilities and rooms. Not the best location either


It was a real disappointment this hostel! The door was so little that we almost didnt't find the hostel, it was in front of the garbage dropoff in the street. Our room had a hole on the ceiling, it had a bad smell and it was really degraded. We did a reservation for a double room with shared WC and we eneded up on a dorm with four beds, the staff told us that the double room didn't even exist. Terrible!! Don't recommend it for anyone!

The dorm was not exactly very clean , it was a windowless room. The bathrooms were better outside the dorm. It's quite a distance away from pelorinho. Anyways it was a good neighbourhood.


With few exception, the staff is excellent. Majority of them are ready to help and very polite. The location is excellent because is near to bars and restaurants, and about 4min walking to "Buracao beach".

Tea and coffee making facilities don't exist at all! The kitchen is too small and there are no enough implements to cook...

It's a nice place and relaxing I thought it was well located but it is! it's in the middle of everywhere halfway to bus stattion airport the center places to go to nice beaches!!! it's really nice!


Time spent at EL MISTI was very nice, the staff makes you feel very much at home, you can use them in case of a problem or ask for help and always with a smile. The sector is very good (Rio Vermelho) is close to places to eat, bars, transport for rodoviaria, pillory, including airport and only 2 blocks from the beach, really convenient for those who travel alone. They also have an amazing breakfast, all this for a very good price, I was very surprised

It,s a hostel that is starting from level zero. The equipement is not the best, but I'm absolutely sure that the amazona staff will make it up for you!! You will enjoy this place for sure ;)


They only have the brand , becuase It´s a new argentinian hostel, without structure, the staff doesnt know how to give you directions. There is a bar but there isnt a bartender, so you couldnt buy drinks. The breakfast is just ok. The locations is good for the night life. They dont organize any kind of city tours or trips and dont know the directions.
