Super friendly staff , they gave the best "what-to-do-tips", helped with every problem and made us feel at home right away! The free tours with Luis must be awesome - sadly I couldn't go, I'd still recommend it ;)

Even though tiny rooms, there is a great atmosphere here, with friendly staff and awesome location. Highly recommend the El Misti two brothers mountain climb with Luis!! Best views over rio and a few lovely stops in the favela for acai ice-cream and cold beer.

A very good budget hostel. Staff are friendly and happy to help and the breakfast is nice also. Only real negative is that the hostel is quite busy for its size, and therefore the bathrooms aren't often very clean, even though there is always someone cleaning. We would stay again though!:)

By fare the worst place I have ever stayed. Small rooms, loud music on a monday and thursday (played by the staff), lousy breakfast. The bedsheets were thin as paper and very old. It was not clean, you get my drift. Don´t go, I went to another Hostel (The green mango treee) and it is 100 times the value for money.

The most amazing place in Rio! It's the second time I chose to come to this hostel.. You have from everything here. There's a great staff that helps in everything, the place and rooms are always very clean! a great breakfast, great dinner in a good price every night, Active bar with great Capirinhas! you get a "welcome Caipirinha" on your first night and you also get one on your last night.

I can really recommand this hostel to everybody. Nice and clean and the staff makes you feel like you are at home. Just 5 minutes walk away from Copacabana and 10 minutes from Ipanema beach the location is perfect. They also offer nice tours, a good breakfast and for less than 20 Reaal a dinner every night. I cannot name anything I didnt like about the hostel.

El Misti is a great hostel.location is 4 blocks from Copacabana beach. The evening meal is very good value for money and the social area is a great place to meet people. The rooms are quite small and I didnt like was the triple bunk as it was difficult to get to the top bunk.

This hostel has lots of tours available if you need any recommendations while in Rio. The hostel is located on a quiet street located a couple blocks away from the beach. The area is a bit touristy and more expensive than other parts of Brazil but that is expected for all of Copacabana. We stayed 4 nights in a 12 person room and there were no issues with sound or sleeping. The facilities are all very clean and standard of most of the other hostels I have been to. I would stay at El Misti again.

The dorms are way to crowded, but beside that, a good hostel with a perfect location, close to both Copacabana and Ipanema!

The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and I felt very comfortable asking them a ton of questions and hanging out in the hostel. They allowed me to keep my luggage in the hostel before and after check-in/check-out. Breakfast was probably the best hostel breakfast I have had. They also offered great discounts on drinks and night events.

Great hostel to stay at. Walking distance to Copacabana beach, supermarkets, restaurants, etc The staff are very helpful, and the hostel has a great vibe to it, especially if you are looking for more of a party place Things you should be aware off: - Even though they have a kitchen, you almost never have access to it, because the staff are always cooking there - The prices are cheap during the week, but they go up sharply on the weekends - The dorms are a bit cramped

Only a few blocks away from Copacabana beach. The staff is great and helpful. The atmosphere is great as well, maybe because of the daily caipirinha happy hour. I do dislike triple bunk beds in general and this was no exception, but maybe they were just there because of the world cup.
