Had a brilliant week at El Misti House, the staff are all very friendly and give good advise about what to do and where to go both day/night. The hostel food is also very good and a cheap alternative to eating out in the evening, and it's location is fantastic for Copacabana beach and the metro. Met some brilliant people during my week there and would recommend others to stay. Andy, UK

Clean, good location, good breakfast but you can find similar hostels much cheaper than this one in southern Rio. The kitchen staff is so rude and they only give you a tiny blanket so be aware during cold season. Overcrowded. Not for real travelers just for holiday-makers.

Very nice place overall, but it is too small for the amount of people they always have there. Breakfasts are good and simple, very good dinners they offer at a hostel (8.30 pm), everyday something new.

It's walking distance to a metro line and Copacabana beach as well as a super market and food. The staff is friendly and helpful., the internet is fast though only accessible from the main floor. The layout is a bit of a pain since there are like 5 floors and the rooms are small and pretty packed with triple level bunk beds but everyone follows the noise rules and the breakfast is varied and delicious.

The first thing is the cleanliness! Sometimes at the evening no one had signed the "washing list" and it was very dirty, next morning it had all been signed. There was no soap in the nearest toilet for our entire stay! The whole place is really tight, bathrooms are small, common area and "the bar" is small, the bunk beds are so low I hit my knee in the bed over when turning in my sleep (I'm 1.80 m). Atmopshere is good tough and the staff is helpful!

Old, damp, dingy, and not really clean. I stayed there for 5 nights and only 2 bathrooms had hand soap in them. They never refilled the dispensers. Old beds, Old linens, etc. The air circulation and quality in my room was terrible. On a positive note, the staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great. The dinners they provide for a fee are very good.
