Clean bathrooms, friendly staff, great breakfast. Camilo helped me in a tough situation, and I thank him so much for it. Big thanks to all the Misti staff!

The Staff at this hostel are Awesome, very friendly, honest, helpful & fun to party with! Especially Chris & Roberto ;) The location is perfect! On the down side WiFi barely works in the rooms and the bathrooms small & poorly maintained, but i think you'll find this in most hostels in Rio. Crazy D

I stayed here with my boyfriend in a private room. We were really happy with the service we got; nice and helpful personnel, the room and bathrooms were clean. The only thing I would like to comment on, was the fact that it was quite noisy. The atmosphere was great, but in case you wanted to go to sleep early, it was hard to ignore the other people having drinks a wall away.

Great breakfast and evening meals are good value. Hot shower works best if you turn it on and off a few times

This is a party hostel. As a solo traveller, I was very happy that there was a lot of activity in the common area and made some great friends. This is a good place to meet people from all over the world. I have two significant complaints though: the WiFi was terrible and did not work in the rooms but only in the common area. It is very spotty, which was very annoying since I needed to do research about the city and find places to go. My second complaint was that the bathrooms were very dirty.

The worst hostel ever! The bathrooms looked like they had never been cleaned up, the room was horrible,the locker was damaged so the person next to it had access to it, the place is very small you feel like a prisoner and the worse thing was the way the staff treated us, one of them rolled his eyes at me and even murmured words in a very rude way. I stayed only one day because I couldn't stand it anymore and ran away! I'd never go there again!!

Quite a cramped hostel but in an excellent location! Good breakfast and helpful staff. The atmosphere wasn't as good as I hoped but the mini bar that crops up in the evening does good cocktails! The bathrooms were a bit hit and miss always clean but only one was spacious enough the others were very small, especially for having a shower! Close to the beach, a super market and the metro station. Would stay again!

My stay was great. The staff there are really cool people and very helpful at the same time. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who heads over to Brazil.

Good location, staff were friendly after you got to know them. Good atmosphere overall. We had 2 floods in our 'basement dorm' which were very annoying but the staff were helpful and knocked some money off the final bill. The facilities are very poor, lots of showers but all cold (which is nice sometimes) some aircon but not throughout, not able to use the kitchen and in the second everything is broken.

El Misti is perfect for a couple of nights stay - however there a few things that could be improved! The cleanliness is not great, particularly in the bathrooms (of which there aren't many compared to the huge amount of people that fit in the hostel!), and the wifi signal is poor except in the reception area. And the bedrooms are HOT - but aircon only comes on for a short time (fans in room are rubbish!)Breakfast is fine, dinners are worth the 18 reals, and the staff are lovely.

Hostel was pretty cramped--six to a room that was made for four people and the window opened up into the outdoor smoking area. The A/C was nice to have, but was extremely cold and right above my bed. Since we only had a thin sheet, I had to unplug it at night. While the staff was nice, this place crammed too many people into a small space.
