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!

Es ist nicht schön dass die Zimmer keine Fenster haben. Sehr schlechtes Raumklima zum Teil schimmelgeruch!

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.

Camas demasiado estrechas y en lugares incomodos. Es una casa llena de escaleras y un poco enredado. Hay varios baños; buscar el mas comodo. En general, nos sentimos en un lugar estrecho y de mala energia.

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.

Não gostei da estrutura, também não achei o lugar muito limpo. A roupa de cama parece que nem é passada. E o café da manhã não é destinado às pessoas que têm compromissos ou acordam antes da 8 hs.

Overall this is a good place to stay for a few nights. The rooms are quite small as are the bathrooms but I think this is typical of Rio. Good bar with a free welcome cocktail, we also did the taco evening which was really good and cheap. Breakfast also good. Very near the beach and centre
