    Amazing vibes!!! Some of the best things were the home made breakfast, suuuper helpful staff (Joao 😘) and the atmosphere they created and we went to one party they co-organized and I have never danced like that in my life! I want to go back! Great value for money, of course you can find a fancier place but that's not what backpacking is about for me 😉

    Jaoa and Anna made our stay great, they were very fun, kind and helpful! We stayed in a private room which was basic but perfectly fine for us. You are located right near copacabana beach which is ideal The hostel organised some nights out which we went on. The places we went were lively and decent. Drinks in the hostel were cheap so a good place to start the night out. There’s also an El Misti in Ipanema, which is a good option if you’d rather stay in Ipanema.

    Had a great stay at El Misti Hostel, the staff are very friendly and so helpful, not only with getting around but also with other issues we had with setting up our sim on our phone. The hostel is in a great location (a 2 min walk from the beach) and is close enough to public transport to get around the city. The hostel it self is very clean and tidy, great breakfast and also has a good bar with cheap drinks. Would 100% recommend.

    This is a very casual, friendly place, perfectly located, close to Copacabana beach, supermarkets and shops. Has a kitchen and a fridge, in case you want to prepare your own meals. Very good breakfast is available at very reasonable price. Hostel's staff is the best. Friendly, accommodating, English speaking, helpful in every possible way. Stayed there for 9 nights. With love, Boba.

    The Misti Hostel was solid. Great location right next to the metro and a few blocks from the beach. The room was only okay (no hot water for example), there wasn't a ton of atmosphere (very few people used the rooftop deck) and while the staff was super nice, they weren't particularly knowledgeable.

    The hostel had a great atmosphere and location, price is good! The only thing they really need to improve is the cleanliness. We booked a private room because we were very tired from the previous trips and had to work as well, however it seemed the floor and toilet hadn't been cleaned at all before we arrived (floor and shower were full with hairs and toilet even had some urine on it)

    It is not good for solo travelers but the location and the staff are terrific. The area is safe for Rio, there are all 10 bed dorms and not a big common area. The staff are really nice though. Also the rooms smelled a bit

    The rooms were dated, the water system broke down on my first morning meaning I could not use the showering facilities following a long flight the night before. The location was not ideal for easy access of the beach, being approximately four blocks away from Copacabana beach. Having said that, it was right next to the subway/metro station and the staff were really friendly and helpful in arranging things.

    Came back from NYE on the beach & someone was passed out drunk in my bed, on top of my belongings, front desk would not refund. Had to find an emergent place to stay that night with street closures. Staff fails to keep unpaying guests from staying there! Need a better security system! Even if they had kicked him out, the room & my stuff stunk from this guy laying on my clothes!
