For travellers looking to soak up the sun on Copacabana beach, El Misti House is in a great location. Just four blocks from the beach, it's also only one block from Siqueira Campos metro station connecting to the rest of central Rio. Guests say this hostel has a 'pleasant, fun, friendly atmosphere...created by the great staff', who provide cheap beer and nightly dinners, described by our users as 'tasty and all-you-can-eat'. We like their breakfast, which includes varieties of fresh fruit, cheese, ham and pancakes.

    Enjoyed my time here so much that we extended our stay! Everything was what you’d expect from a top quality hostel and jordi, sophie and the rest of the staff were all really helpful and made us feel welcome. Best caipirinha’s in town!

    Big ups to the staff. They were able to help me with any troubles and allowed me to check in/out a couple of times without any hassle, because of a missed flight. A lot of bang for the buck!

    The staff is what makes this place so awesome, I wasn't in love with the bathrooms they were kinda small and everyone shares them, but the guy who cleans them cleans them like 3 times a day. Plus he's super nice too! I would stay here again. Great great people

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights because another hostel in Rio was not what we expected. It was one of the few available on a Friday night in Rio. We were so impressed the staff spoke English, gave us tips on where to go, and welcomed us every time we re-entered the hostel! It was so pleasant. Overall as a hostel I would stay again, pretty clean, neat, and they have beer and water and locks you can get right there. 10/10 would go again, thanks for making it a pleasant stay!

    The hostel is well located, next to the beach, metro station, restaurants and supermarket. The staff is really helpful and can help you book some tours. It’s a perfect place to make meet other travelers. Bathroom could be cleaner but there is a lot of people so it’s understandable. I recommend the place

    Overall this is a nice hostel with friendly staff and a great location. The only problem was that the bedroom door did not shut properly. It let the light in from the corridor and I could sometimes hear people talking from the corridor/other rooms, so this was a bit annoying when I was trying to go to sleep.

El Misti House says

We have a lot of little extras, like our free welcome drink, the coffee and cake we have every afternoon, the nightly dinners and our multicultural staff. I think our superb open breakfast and cool atmosphere makes us pretty unique. For fun, our guests generally enjoy the bar on the weekends; they meet each other after dinner and go out all together in groups.
We're in an unmatched location in the middle of Copacabana, just half a block from the metro and three blocks from Rio's gorgeous beaches. We're close to a lot of the main attractions as well, like Ipanema Beach, Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. For live music I personally recommend Democratricos Samba Social Club, and I think Carretão Churrascaria is a great place to have dinner. Daniel, Owner
