This was an average hostel. We stayed a couple nights based on the recommendations on hostel world but ended up moving to a nicer, cleaner hostel. Most importantly, they need more plug sockets. We were in a dorm of 4 and there was ONE plug for all four inc the fan!!!! Not great, but okay for 1-2nights.
The best hostel in Brazil! I was meant to stay 2 nights but ended up 8 in total I just couldn't leave! Paulo runs a very tight ship! He looks scary Brit but he is absolutely lovely, has travelled lots and genuinely wants people to have fun time. The 8 bed dorm was spacious, enough room for bags and lockers and a big bathroom. Very clean hostel. Fantastic location! Fantastic atmosphere. Free caipirinhas each night and the breakfast by vanda is AWESOME! Best time, I'll definitely be back!
This has got to be one of the best hostels in Brazil! Gus, the argentine owner, is fantastic. I was travelling alone and as soon as I checked in, he introduced me to everyone, we had a group BBQ (yum!) and it resulted in everyone mingling straight away. Fantastic vibe. Dorms ok (definitely needs aircon installing which he's doing). Staff super friendly...and most importantly, breakfast was fantastic! Definitely stay here!
Staying at El misti totally depends on the people staying. Unfortunately I was in a 9 bed dorm with a bunch of mean Israelis so it dampened my experience. Dorms are really tightly squeezed, bathroom (bit ming) but there's hammocks and a fun bar area to chat! It's in a fantastic location, so defo stay here.
This is a good hostel to say in. as a single traveller, it made my experience a lot better being able to have fun at the bar meeting new people. Downer is the amount of bed bug bites i got! YUK!
