    I fell in love with Rio and el Misti was a big part of that experience. As a solo traveler it was perfect for meeting other tourists. It’s located in the very beautiful neighborhood of ipanema, filled with good restaurants and the beautiful ipanema beach just one block away. The staff was incredible, Mathilde and Vivian are all stars super friendly and helpful with activities and tips. Paul and Cameron were also amazing ( I also had incredible interaction with other staff members). Thank you!!

    Love this hostel! The staff are by far the most friendly and helpful we have found on our 8 month trip! The two girls at reception are awesome and all the fellow travellers that work there are great! Probably the best caipirinhas we have had in all of Brazil and when it’s 2 for 15reals it’s hard to say no! The hostel has recommendations for events on every night of the week! Dorm beds are comfy and the hostel was always clean! 100% stay here!

    I stayed in El Misti Ipanema on 2 occasions whilst visiting Rio. The location is great for the beaches and close by to many bars, restaurants and shops. The hostel is chilled during the day and then has options to party in the evening should you wish to do so. The showers are hot and the rooms are clean. The best thing about the hostel is the staff, particularly the reception staff. They are super friendly, helpful and genuinely nice people. Vivian and Mathilde were a great team and went out of

    Overall a really good hostel. Just one block from Ipanema beach with shops / restaurants / cafes near by. As a solo backpacker it was really sociable which is great. Big security lockers - big enough for hand-luggage and biggest of packs. Breakfast isn’t free but is 20r and really big. For me the downsides were I had a couple of incredibly noisy Brazilian women who were very inconsiderate in the dorm. The lack of privacy curtains didn’t help. WiFi isn’t amazing either.

    Most of the staff here were great! One guy in particular who spoke perfect English and was so helpful! The location is fabulous so close to the beach and restaurants. The beds were basic, the six bed dorm had bunks three high which is a little difficult to navigate. The room also has no hooks for towels or clothes in the room itself... which for a place so close to the beach is ridiculous.. my advice put as many clothes and towel hooks in all the areas as possible! Would stay again

    Very Good

    Very well situated hostel with relatively low prices, a good bar, super nice bartenders and fun atmosphere. The common areas are however tiny and cramped and have an awfully dirty toilet that you have no choice but to use if you are already checked out.

    Great location, not the best atmosphere because there isn’t a ton of space to hangout, rooms felt a little claustrophobic and mattresses literally had mold in them. Probably wouldn’t stay again.
