I stayed there 9 nights because I was comfortable there. Staff is very nice, fun and pretty helpful. Location is good: close to the metro (gloria), close to lapa so you can walk back at night, close to santa theresa. The house has a fantastic patio at the top where bbq are organized on saturdays. Drinks are available at the hostel at a good price, which is convenient and helps socialize. English is readily spoken. Breakfast is better than average as well. This hostel is a very solid choice.

The best staying when travelling in Brazil for 3 weeks. Located in Santa Marta where is the most cozy and relaxing area in Rio, though it always takes a little time and muscle to walk 10-15 mins uphill to the hostel. Staff are great, friendly and helpful. Zebra cat is just too lovely!! The rooftop is a great spot to get lazy. Everyone gets a welcome Caipirinha! Clean, well-organized and good value for money. Definitely recommend Santa Mix.

Hello, thans for your review. We were doing the annual revision on the A/Cs, and the last to be done was exactly the one in your room. We apologize for that. But abou the bathrooms, Your review is not the first one to "complain" about that. In fact, we have 4 bathrooms in the hostel. 3 with toilet and shower and one with toilet only and another with shower only. I guess it is a staff mistake not to let you know about that, Cheers :)

The hostel has a good vibe with some drinking etc, but quiet after 10pm so we could sleep fine. The staff are friendly, although it wasnt exactly clear who was on duty out of the 4 staff who seemed to come and go. I'd suggest some identification like a hostel shirt or something. The bathrooms are cleaned only once a day, and there are only 2 bathrooms for the hostel. Our dorm light broke twice. The breakfast is mediocre- bread, jam, juice and coffee. I would try somewhere else next time.

All in all, the perfect hostel to stay at when you're in Rio. Staff is very very very! friendly and helpful. Included breakfast with fresh fruits, coffee and everything you need. Organized dinners with local dishes and pub visits. Incredible view from terrace over the whole city. Would definitely recommend the stay and would come back any time!!

Can not fault this hostel it is the best we have stayed at by far. New comfortable beds and pillows, clean bathrooms, rooftop terrace along with a blow up pool (thought this was a nice extra touch) great common area especially for socialising made many friends here. The atmosphere that this hostel created was the best we have also had, Jorge is the hostess with the mostest (altho I would never tell him) along with Tor and Sunny they made us feel at home. Everyone should be staying here now!!!

Excellent week end at Santa Mix, staff is great and make you feeling home! Santa Teresa is a really nice neighborhood and even if you'll have to climb a little to get to the hostel, it is really well located and close to the metro.

Some poeple from the staff not very professional, you have to wake them up by yourself in order to get a taxi and even if you ask for it the day before they order it late, shouldn't let your personal problems influence your work

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It can accommodate to a limited amount of people only (so, if you are looking for a party hostel w/ lots and lots of people in their early twenties you may be disappointed) and adding a little coop flair you have a phantastic homey place where you can make friends, get all sorts of infos, hang out, do your little adventures and come back home. I loved the place and would always go back. Thanks to you guys (staff). You made my stay!

I recently spent 3 nights at the Santa Mix hostel and was absolutely satisfied. The house, the location, the guests, and especially the staff was great! Exactly what you look for when spending a weekend in a nice, little hostel in a city like Rio! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a friendly atmosphere, communicative fellow travellers and staff who are always willing to help. Have stayed in many hostels worldwide and this one was one of the best!
