Possibly the best hostel overall I stayed in my 1-month vacation through Peru, Argentina, and Brazil. The staff - especially Nik, Jorge, Sandra, and most of all - Tor - were the best staff I met for any hostel. They were always willing to help and hang around with you. When you pass by the hostel, be sure to spend some time with Tor if he's around! The place was like a home-away-from-home. Be sure to take a moto-taxi at the bottom of the hill; it'll take you all the way up for only 3 Reals!
Good location but limited space inside the hostel. Pleasant atmosphere. Would stay again
Had a great stay! Thanks to the wonderful staff and, of course, the best zebra cat! Clean dorm, bathroom and nice decorations. 10 mins walk from metro. Nice breafast. Good vibe.
Highly recommended, staff are amazing. Only stayed one night, very sad to leave. Santa Teresa is great area to hang out in Rio.
Amazing hostel, the staff were great always happy to help and to take us out at night and get us back safely. Really cool having a music studio downstairs as well.
This was simply the best hostel I have ever stayed at. I am so grateful for the hospitality and friendliness that the staff showed me. I will definitely be back! Thank you for everything.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at - very friendly staff with a personal approach. Felt more like staying with friends than in a hostel actually. On my first night we all had a BBQ and drinks at the rooftop terrace which was exactly what I needed after a long flight. Great location, nice views from the terrace, tasty breakfasts. One thing to look out for is that there are no signs on the outside of the building - can only be found by knowing the address.
Santa mix is an excellent hostel to stay in. The staff is really helpful, the atmosphere is really good. There is an amazing rooftop. I ll definitely recommend to stay there
Fab hostel - really enjoyed my stay :) staff are lovely, great location and really good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this hostel!
Everithing ok except wifi in the rooms was really poor!! Bathrooms excelent too.
Hostel with a soul, great staff and good place to meet other travellers
Great staff and great atmosphere, the perfect hostel for solo backpackers! I have been the only girl for 4 days but had such a great time, the hostel is very close to lapa to go out and the staff comes with the hosts, it's perfect!
The hostel is very nice, the location is good, but you have to walk like 10 min to the metrostation. The breakfast was ok, they told us that breakfast is at 8 o'clock, but it unfortun. started at 9 o'clock, so we lost time. The staff was nice but they could help more in my opinion. We asked to call a taxi because we had to leave in 5 minutes.But he didn't called a taxi yet, and then there was no taxi available, so we had to walk with our baggages the hole way to the metro when we were in a hurry
I only stayed here one night but could tell the hostel had a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Dorm and bathroom very clean and well equipped, and the roof terrace is really nice!
We really enjoyed staying at Santa Mix. The location is very good, close to Lapa, Santa Teresa and the metro that takes you to the centre and the beaches. The hostel was very clean and the staff extremely helpful. The staff suggests an evening activity every night and you can join if you like to. And the wonderful roof terrace is a plus too. Would recommend it!!!
We had a fantastic stay at this hostel! The staff makes you feel very welcome. The vibe in the hostel is excellent, definitely a recommendation.
Friendly hostel super roof terrace with views over bay easy walk to Gloria metro. Helpful and efficient staff. Nice breakfast relaxed atmosphere.
Amazing stay: beds comfortable and bathrooms cleaned every day; hostel located in Santa Teresa district, 10 minutes walk to nice pubs and restaurants and 15 minutes walk to Lapa (clubs district); although the problems that a big city like Rio has, I never felt unsafe; there is a kitchen where to prepare excellent dinners and two fridges where to store your own stuff or pick up some cold beers; the icing on the cake are the music room and the terrace; but the really top are staff and atmosphere!

Situated in the Center of Santa Theresa (save and nice neighborhood) with a good connection to all major sights in Rio (by bus and/or metro)
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.
