    What can I say! EL MISTI HOSTEL IPANEMA WAS EVERYTHING & MORE! First & foremost the location! It surprised the hell out of me b/c I guess is was not paying attention to how close the beach was! You literally a block away from even more beautiful VIBES! The hostel is very clean & all the staff were very kind & helpful & will tend to any questions or needs you might have. Uber is easy to take for cheap to anywhere from here & you also have the train station right by! Also good restaurants as well!

    Great hostel in a great location 1 block from the beach and metro. Very helpfull staff and cool bartender. The manager Livia is a champ as well. Highly recommend this place if you want to chill by the beach and have a few drinks after your weekend in Lapa.

    I have stayed at 3 Rio hostels, and Mango Tree (just around the corner) is a better hostel. About El Misti Ipanema: Pros: They organise free tours to Pedra do Telegrafo, Dois Irmaos, etc, which makes exploring easy Cons: Poor breakfast, you get given everything on a tray like a meal on a plane, whereas Mango Tree for the same price R$20, is bigger, better, and all-you-can-eat. Also, if you do insist on staying here, don't stay in the 12-bed dorm - it's cramped, noisy, and has a dirty bathroom.

    Check-in process is cumbersome at best... when you first pay for the booking you receive an email in a different language, and you are requested to fill-in a separate form asides from the one in the website. You are also requested to pay 50% of your booking to confirm it (what's the point of booking through the website then?); they conveniently mention this somewhere far down the long list of 'house rules'. Location is great, breakfast is a ripoff; staff saves the place.

    Staff were lovely and welcoming, location is incredible too, however a few things let the hostel down. WiFi was awful, air con in the bedrooms was hit and miss, toilet in the communal area downstairs was always dirty.
