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.

    Really loved my stay at misti, I think the best to be said about this hostel is the amazing staff. Really outgoing and helpful. I also really love the atmosphere, where they are social in the common area until 11-12 ish and then bring the party out of the hostel to explore what Rio has to offer. So if you want to sleep you won’t be kept up all night. There is plenty to do in Rio but always felt nice to come back to a welcoming environment whether it be an early night or at 7 am.

    We've had a great time in El Misti. This hostel is a perfect place to socialize, make friends from all over the world and go partying with them after some rounds of caipirinha at the hostel! Special thanks to the staff members Wendel and Priscila for being so kind and helpful at any time.

    Firstly the room. We were in the 8 bedroom womens dorm - would not recommend booking it. The fan broke on our arrival and the air conditioning was not working the majority of the time we stayed. There was no windows so no option to have fresh air either. The bathrooms - On our first morning the water stopped working which left no option for showers. On the other days when we could shower, the showers were often cold. There was often no toilet paper in the toilets. Staff are lovely but..

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
