What to say?!? .... This place is actually amazing!!! From the people working there (Gabriel, you are a star), to the location, vibe and people it attracts (let me not forget that fantastic rooftop and the hostal's feline friend). Had a great time at Santa Mix and would most definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore Rio. Although not close to the beach (ie. Copacabana) it is so easy to get there, as the metro station drops you straight to Ipanema beach in 15 mins! Perfect!!!!!
We only stayed for three nights and for us the hostel had everything we needed. The shower was always clean, the toilet was not as clean, as it got used more, but it was an acceptable standard. We could lock our room and the hostel felt secure. We found the area around the hostel to be safe and it was only a five-ten minute walk to the nearest underground. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was nice and there was plenty of it.
