    I loved staying at el misti! It kind of sucked that Covid made them shut their doors but I understand that the government ordered them to and I get it. Either way I hope they’ll be back at it again soon!

    Great hostel, could probably offer more activities or organise more activities to help bring the travellers together. Breakfast is overpriced for what it is. Close to local bars, restaurants and the beach is just a stones throw away. Staff were very friendly and helpful, I’d recommend staying at this hostel.

    Had a great time here in March. We were in an 8 bed dorm - good sized lockers and bathroom was fine. Beds were made every day. There were plenty of events planned for the evenings and was always lively in the bar in the evening. Good social atmosphere/social space and only one block away from Ipanema beach and the metro stop. Highly recommend!

    Had a nice stay here, staff were all very friendly and helpful, location is excellent, close to the beach and the metro. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm Which was a bit cramped as they use triple bunks which seems to be standard in many hostels here. Decent breakfast, fairly clean. Would stay again.
