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!!!!!
The staff were so incredibly helpful and accommodating! The actual hostel is extremely central and the service provided, ie breakfast and facilitates were superb. I would definitely return to cheers and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in town!
EXCELLENT, AMAZING, FABULOUS VALUE FOR MONEY!!!...this place was great & the staff were so friendly, charming & helpful that it made the stay at the people's hostel an absolute pleasure. The location is perfect as you are seconds away from the monastery (& most importantly the pasteis de Belem!!!) & you can easily get buses and trams into the heart of the city. The chilled out communal space was ideal for meeting & mingling with other guest...Highly recommended and I'll be visiting again.Thanks.
