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!!
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!
Really enjoyed my stay at Santa mix. The staff were great. I felt part of the family from the start. Good community spirit, and heading out together. Would def stay again.
Nice Hostel to relax in the evening is somethink going on ther like Barbecues or going out to Santa Teresa or Lapa the people how work there are really helpfull and cool. As well is the Hostel clean and the bed i sleeped was the best bed in a Hostel i ever sleped. New Beds really comfortably. Thanks for this nice Days. I d really liked it

Loved Santa Mix hostel. Incredibly friendly and welcoming staff, clean rooms, big lockers and just a generally fun and easy atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it as the perfect place to stay in Rio.
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!

This hostel has it all! Great location, walking distance to the party area, metro station and the supermarket. Only a 10 min subway ride to the Ipanema beach. The staff is incredibly helpful, funny and interested in creating a great atmosphere and the breakfast is great vIt's so easy to meet your cotravellers and go out with them, as the staff organizes events. Loved it and really glad that I stayed there. Perfect location if you're travelling alone.
This is the best hostel Ive ever stayed at!! :) Its small and therefor its really easy to get to know other people! The staff are great, especially George who is a crazy Brazilian who is super friendly and very including guy! great place to stay if your going to Rio!!!

We stayed for four nights and had fun every evening. The staff was very helpful and had new ideas to complement ours. The hostel is rather small (15 beds) and you get to know each other easily. Except for the steep road up to the place it's just perfect and we would recommend it to everyone.
Excellent hostel with great staff. I felt like part of the clan within 5 minutes of entering! Just the right size for getting to know the other lodgers there... perfect for lone travellers (and small groups alike). Great facilities, especially the spacious roof terrace. Very attentive and fun staff, did their utmost to facilitate everyone's needs. The constant supply of beer didn't hurt either!
There's only two things i regret about santa mix: why didn't i come earlier and why didn't i stay longer?! Thx for everything!
