Cerca de la playa, cerca del metro. Tenia como 3 mercados a una cuadra a la redonda. Osea, la ubicación excelente! La atención buena y el precio el más barato que encontre en copa

Querida Emilse! Gracias por tu comentario! Es muy gratificante para nosotros saber que nuestros esfuerzos se ven reflejados en una excelente estadía! Nos alegra saber que disfrutaste tus dias en El House. Esperamos volver a verte en el futuro! Queda la invitación para una próxima visita! Hasta pronto, El Misti staff.


반지하 지하에 방이 많음 그래서 창문 없는 방도 있고 습하고 어두움. 방 크기에 비해 침대가 많은듯 함. 아침도 그저그렇고 위치 빼고는 비추.

Dera Sunyoung, Thank you for taking the time to rate our services. Unfortunately this time we did not reach your expectations but you can be sure that we are working constantly to improve and give you all the best service! We hope to have a new chance to host you in the future and change the impression you took this time. Best Regards from El Misti House staff.


Great location, a couple blocks back from the beach. The tours from here are great and they pick you up from the hostel, having fox sports was also a great bonus. Showers are scattered throughout but we never had an issue finding a free one, and they are always clean


Rooms and showers were good. Breakfast was ok but the milk was warm for the cereal and it was too crammed and way too hot. We were also mislead by the Ilha grande day trip which we though would be a small private tour turned out to be a locals boat party which ruined the beauty of the island. There also seemed like there was too many staff hanging around not doing much. It was an ok hostel but not the best.

Dear Emily, Thank you for taking the time to post a comment about your experience at the hostel. Your opinions are very important to us! We are happy to know you found the rooms and general facilities good as well as the security. Unfortunately we didn´t reach your expectations with the Ilha Grande tour. We hope to have a new chance to host you and offer you other options more related to your preferences.. Once again, thank you for posting a comment!!! ... El Misti staff.


1st time I sleep in the basement...! I was lucky though, my room had a window but some don't even have one!! I could not imagine paying to stay in a room without window. The 3rd of the staff is really nice, the rest is not very "open-minded" or just friendly. After a week in the hostel one of the receptionists asked me if I was a guest, doesn't make U feel at home. The place is very clean, good point! and there is a quite room, very helpful if you need to concentrate.

Dear Johann, Thank you for your review!Your opinions are very important to us. At the moment we are working on general improvements in the house. But it´s important to mention that though there is one room with no window in the house, all of them have air conditioning. We are sorry you got a bad impression of our staff and hope to make up for it in the future! We hope to see you again! Best regards from El Misti House
