Santa Mix is super!! Really great location close to downtown Santa Teresa (super cute bohemian neighborhood with great restaurants and outdoor bars) and the Gloria metro station, safe and quiet neighborhood. The rooms had air conditioner, fans, and lockers, the beds were comfortable, and the hostel never got too noisy. Really nice upstairs patio. The breakfast is good -- bread, cheese, ham, fruits, coffee, milk, and fresh juice. Friendly and helpful staff. WiFi service is very good.

Thanks a lot for your lovely words. Things like that make us work even happier.


I came for the second time to santa mix on less than a week because everything in Paraty was sold out! I booked late at night but when we arrived Jorge was there waitibg for su with our beds ready! Once again, Gabriel, Jorge and Marce shined, thats why we decided to go back! Nothing feels better than being treated nice, and this staff is pretty good about doing that! All the services are good! They have netflix, WiFi, hot showers, kitchen, a great terrace and even a music studio! Cheers santamix


I really enjoyed staying at this hostel! O arrived late, 2;30am and Gabriel was there to help me out! Marce, who does the breadas y and cleaning is very accomodating and nice! Love the atmohphere! The WiFi is pretty good! There is hot water! The metro and bus station is close by! The hostel is in a nice and safe part of town! And the people that work there are very nice! Thanks Gabriel, Marce and Jorge, you guys made our stay very pleasant!


We had the perfect stay in Rio in Santa mix!its a small hostel so you get to know everyone


Excellent staff!!! Very nice place for your time in Rio. Perfect for artist, musicians and all kind of backpackers. There's a wonderful terrace at the top with panoramic view over Rios city center and a studio with about 20 different guitars to play :) Don't miss the Caipirinha nights!!! ;) Highly recommended!!!


A very welcoming hostel (only my second one ever), but no problems and certain amenities made things easier. eg. buying water, soda, laundry.
