Property Information:

We are probably the friendliest hostel in town. Big enough for parties and real barbecues or real pizzas made on a real pizza oven. Santa Mix is also small, we have only a few rooms as we can fit up to 17 lucky visitors, So here, you can get the best deal in town. Low fares, top quality mattresses, Free WiFi, Air conditioning, hot showers, Cable TV, Netflix also connected directly to the internet, so you can choose a movie or TV series directly from the remote. Basically we have all the facilities you need to feel at home far from your own home, plus an outstanding and fulfilling FREE breakfast BUFFET.
Our staff is so friendly they will prepare you a free caipirinha if this is what you wish.
We have also bike rentals and a very nice guide that would go out with you to show you one of wildest nights in town, or maybe a good company to go to a traditional Santa Teresa bar nearby. Or if you are just up to get to know a favela in town, he can take you there too.
We also have a very cool music room, or studio. For those who play guitar, drums, bass, or keyboard and are missing their time with their beloved instruments, we have it all set up for you. Even top quality recording is possible in our musical playground.

Santa Mix Hostel is a nice 1930s building with a very cool open terrace ready for making travelers feel at home.

The house is located in Santa Teresa, 750m from the Gloria metro station and 300m from the Santa Teresa rails and bars.

We have a spacious terrace where you can read, sunbathe, listen to music, have some barbecue or watch the beautiful view of Guanabara Bay. Our house is a mix of antique furniture, rustic decor with the alternative convenience of having everything you need in a modern home.

Our hostel offers you Internet access, linen included, breakfast included, air conditioning and lockers.

We also have a nice kitchen with fridge, stove, free spices and oil, and lots of cooking tools and pans! There is also a fridge with cold sodas and beers, always ready for a nice international chat in a rainy day!
