The staff of the hostel are great and they help you with everything you need. There are dinners with a really good price at the hostel. The dorm rooms are tight, and don't have much space, but it is the same in all of Rio. The manager Federico, helped us so much much with the rest of the trip and was very kind about all of our stay in the hostel. Over all a good hostel in Rio.

It was very very crammed. 6 people dorms could only fit 6 people in them when everyone were in their beds. Impossible to have more than 2 suitcases out from under the bed at a time. They had a lockup under the beds for you bags but they kept breaking and most locks didn't fit them. No individual door keys. Sheets looked thilthy, ripped and smelt dirty. The mattresses were feral. Bathrooms dirty and smashes in the windows ment people could see u when u showered. good wifi, great location!

Nice place, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Had appreciated a sharp knife in the kitchen and individual reading lights, though.

The service and stay was great overall! There is free breakfast in the mornings and dessert in the afternoons. It's a great environment to meet people and hang out, especially if you're traveling solo. Wifi service can be a little spotty, but it worked most of the time. The staff is really informative of things to do and how to get around. They also speak English and Spanish which is helpful!

Rally liked this hostel; great breakfast, nice kitchen and very clean. The best thing, however, was the staff! Only downside was the cramped room and the triple bunks... would still stay here again though.

Not a bad hostel, great location down a quiet street but still very close to Copacabana and necessities like pharmacies, supermarkets, atm. Typical Rio hostel with cramped rooms but generallt clean. Good clenaing staff always keeping the bathrooms in order too. Good hot water. Decent Brazillian breakfast of bread, ham, cheese, fruit and juice.

i had an awesome time here at the hostel, the staff was great, the location is excelent cause it is 5 blocks away from the beach, there is also cheap and good food!!!!! ; ) I specially liked the atmosphere that Oscar and Santi created during my stay. Unfortunately I couldn´t go hand gliding with Santi just because of the weather, I hope I can do it next time!! I totally recommend El Misti!!!!

El Misti hostel was great, the staff were awesome, always willing to help you out with a smile, especially the young girl on reception. The rooms were a bit small and I am not a fan of triple bunks. Breakfast was alright, the hostel provided lots of info about tours and activities.

Nice hostel, all the employees there were great except one guy who was not helpful at all, but that is just a minor stain on the hostel. Overall the place was very nice, and the location is just a couple blocks from the copacabana beach.

Not the best hostel I've ever stayed at, but you get what you pay for. Great breakfast, albeit on the early side. Staff were friendly and approachable. Showers were quite dirty, I was there for 5 days and seen them being cleaned once (could have been done when I was out but didn't seem that way). Also, was able to use the AC in May which is good! All in all, for a short and cheap stay, this does the job!

Great hostel! The staff is amazing and Leila always welcomes you with a smile! The cleaning ladies are there all the time to clean the hostel. The location is amazing, just a couple of blocks away from the Copacabana beach. They offer many things and they have some good tours. In the afternoon they offer you some cake and coffee, which is a nice addition as well! It's not a party hostel, so you can have a good night sleep here if you want.

El misti rooms is a great place to stay, the location is close to the beach and the next metro station. staff members are really nice and helpful, had many advices for me. Also met some interesting people from pretty much all over the world. Will come here again for my next visit to Rio.

I arrived at Rio few days ago and I found a great place close to the beach with a very complete breakfast and friendly staff, which helped in every concern I had. Rooms are confortable and very clean. Enough bathrooms for all guests, guess there were 6 or so. They also gave us cake and coffee in the afternoons. I recommend this place and, if I go back to Rio, will undoubtely visit Martin, Leila and the rest of the guys again!
