Os funcionários são solícitos e isso faz toda a diferença. Sobre a infra não é a melhor comparado a outros Hostels do Rio, mas o custo benefício é bom. O que falta é um cuidado com a temperatura, o quarto 1 é absurdamente quente, mesmo com o ar condicionado ligado, principalmente nas camas de baixo (são triliches). A área de convivência na frente do hostel também é muito quente, recomendo que trabalhem para amenizar este problema da temperatura, pois fora isso o El Misti House é uma boa opção.

Even though they had very inflated prices for Carnaval, I still think we definitely got great value for our money. The breakfast was simple but nice, they offered glitter and masks for going out to blocos, and one night the bartender even made us caipirinhas because he just felt like it. The staff was absolutely amazing, and the atmosphere is so social. I definitely recommend it.

We stayed here during carnaval so as you can imagine it was very expensive. Most of the staff were rude and unhelpful. Even being carnival time we got told to "shhh" after 10pm in the main area! The location is good as it is close to the beach and the metro. We only ate once at the hostel but it was good. I found the cleanliness of this place poor and the air con needs to be on more when it is so hot!

Buena ubicación! Desayuno acorde, no rescato nada de la hospitalidad, por que funciona como un hotel, el estaf se limita a responder lo justo y necesario. Falta mayor limpieza.

Pretty cramped place.. Bathrooms are pretty much disgusting, and there are way too few of them compared to how many guests stay here. Rooms are dark and dingy and SO CRAMPED. Eisch. Not great value for money, stay at el misti in Leme instead.

O café da manhã não estava bom, o quarto estava empoeirado e o vaso e o chuveiro estavam entupidos. Caiu bastante!!

Lo mejor del hostel es la atención del personal y el clima que hay en el hostel. Lo único malo es que no hay aire acondicionado en los espacios comunes. Volvería al Misti, sobre todo por la atención del personal, siempre responden todo y tienen muy buena onda, muy simpáticos y trabajan muy muy bien. El desayuno y la comida (a la noche está la posibilidad de comprar comida buena y barata) son muy buenos, e incluso la cocinera es muy simpática!

I stayed here over NYE, ang even thiugh inwas paying extra fir tgd location, i didnt feel like i git amything extra fir it. The staff were mostly all nice and helpful. Thenwalkimg tours that said they were free didnt mentiom you have to pay for things, evsn if they're not goimg to the guide, it would habe been nice to know because I never brought enough money to pay for them.

Dear Amelia, Thanks for choosing us to spend the most important night of the year! And about the tours, we are sorry you left with a bad impression. But the tours really ARE free. All that´s requested is an optional tip for the guides as a way to reward and recognize their work. But there´s nothing else you need to pay for. We would like to invite you again to make up for the inconveniences you had this time! We are glad to know you liked our staff! We will let them know about it!
