Hostelworld says

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.

    The staff were in general really friendly, and the volunteers were even more friendly. The best staff member by far was Mica, not only the friendliest, but the most helpful and the best linguist. Only downside of this hostel was sometimes the utilities weren’t amazing, went a few days without water...

    Good location. Staff were friendly. Has decent drinks and breakfast deal. I stayed both here and at the el misti in Ipanema. This one is cheaper Overall and still in a great location, but I found the one in Ipanema to be nicer/cleaner and i preferred to atmosphere in the bar/cafe there. But still enjoyed my stay here.

    During our stay the lock on our door was broken and somebody stole from our beds (some were very valuable) - I am not sure it was one of the staff members or guests but when I notified the staff they were careless and did not really seem to bother our things were gone. Also the reception is more like a vendor stall, most of the time the staff is just trying to sell their trips and drinks. The location is great and the facilities are OK but I would never book a stay with them again.

    The AC didn't work. The rooms smelled. Somebody was throwing up in my room at 1am. People kept coming in and turning the lights on and laughing til 2. Also, every private locker in the room was full so I couldn't secure my stuff, and the floor area was so cramped I had to cuddle with one of my bags. I suppose this is pretty much in line with what I'd expect for a cheap Rio party hostel, except the cost was about 4x as much as I'd ever spent on a hostel before. Mike was chill though

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
