The hostel has a great location, right next to the subway and it's very close to the beach. The atmosphere is really cool, they give you a free caipirinha when you check in and every night has caipirinha and beer with a good price. the hostel is great for those who is traveling alone and want to find company. All rooms have air conditioning and breakfast is quite good The hostel is a little bit noisy (even with the silence's warning after 22h)

Hostel e staffs excelentes. Café da manhã simples, mas impecável. Se te oferecerem jantar, aceite, pois é muito muito muito bom. Única ressalva é sobre os banheiros, são poucos para muitas pessoas. Mas recomendo o lugar.

Atenciosamente, Staff El Misti House


This is a really social hostel, so if you want to party or you're a single traveller, you'll never end up doing anything alone in this hostel. Staff is mainly spanish speaking and mostly helpful, although not always knowledgeable(for instance, they sent us to Vidigal by bus at 08h, but locals know busses only drive from 10h). Downside is that some rooms(not all) are just way to small and having a good sleep here can be difficult. Credits to staff member Christopher, who entertained our stay!
