Bathrooms were not very clean but the rooms were decent. Kitchen was alright as well but did not have many cooking utentials. Staff were not very helpful and we were often given the wrong directions to places. However, part of the problem could have been the language barrier - if you only speak English then it will be a struggle to communicate. Very good location though - close to the beach and supermarkets.

Great location, super close to the metro and Copacabana beach. The staff were amazing, really helpful and friendly. The hostel has lots of information to help you plan your stay and visits. Rooms are clean and comfortable beds with a lockable box under the bed to store valuables. Was staying in a rubbish hostel in Rio so moving to this one was a delight !

Can only comment on an overnight stay but the hostel seemed great. Staff were friendly upon arrival, the hostel is in a great location within walking distance of everything you need and the room was clean. The breakfast was above average and they offered free Caprihinas between 7-7:30pm. The layout of the hostel is a strange but I'd definitely stay again. Thanks El Misti.

El Misti is a great place, the hostel is lovely and feels really homely. The rooms are comfy, showers clean, breakfast is good and you get quite a lot. I only stayed two nights but really felt a great vibe there, the staff were all really nice and helpful. You can walk everywhere from there as well

I was a bit disappointed arriving to misti house after reading the reviews and can't agree with all the good reviews on here. The rooms are very small with three stories bunk beds. There where very few toilets/showers, in the area i stayed there where 3 bathrooms and five dorms between 6 and 12 beds each. The hostel was not that clean or well kept. Breakfast was served but besides a chocolate cake it was less then fair. Staff was fairly helpful and spoke english.
