Great hostel, spacey rooms and very cool staff members. We really enjoyed nights out in Lapa. Would stay there again and recommend it. Only downside is that you have to walk uphill from the station. Sportswise okay, but it did not feel really secure, but hey, that's unfortunately also part of the Rio experience.

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.
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.
Really enjoyed the stay at Santa Mix! Great staff (especially Thor and Jorge) who were helpful and good to have a beer with! Great rood terrace and overall Vibe! Highly recommend for the Santa Teresa central part of Rio!
A good hostel in santa teresa, breakfast ok, rooms were clean but A/C wasn't working well in the rooms and only one bathroom so can get crowded! But location and staff are nice
Best hostel I've stayed in the las months. Very nice atmosphere, amazing staff. Felt like being at home. Also it is closed to the main sightseeing points. I really recommend this hostel. Thanks Guys Miro and Yuki

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.
A great little hostel with a great atmosphere and awesome staff, who couldn't be more helpful.
Just go there and find out yourself, Way it is by far the best place to Crush in Rio de Jainero. Perfect neighberhood, excellence staff, good roof-Top, only 15 beds with great atmosphere for People Out of their 'Getting-shitfaced-Time' They have also aircon, a very good free breakfast and good advices Where to hang out. Close to Gloria Subway....so og and enjoy! Will be back for Worldcup and Olympics for sure!
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!!
