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.

    אחלה של הוסטל, מקום שקט וממש קרוב לים, איזור די בטוח. מנקה כל יום מגיע לחדר, ההוסטל תמיד עובר שיפורים ושדרוגים והצוות ממש מעולה. יש מספיק כלים לבשל, אחלה אווירה. בגדול ממליץ! הצוות מדבר אנגלית ספרדית ופורטוגזית, כרגע יש גם מתנדב ישראלי.

    The staff were so friendly! Place was always clean! They always let you know what activities there were on offer and told you about nightlife events. Beds were comfy, just like a standard hostel. Great service and everything, really made you feel like home.

    Absolutely fantastic hostel. Extremely friendly staff, so welcoming and hospitable. To give an example, I left my contact lenses at this hostel and they posted them to me in São Paulo for me Couldn’t recommend this hostel more, make sure you buy their breakfast in the morning as you won’t be able to get a better one nearby for a better price. Also, their evening party/event recommendations are always fun and sociable, a great way to meet new people! Amazing place to stay!

    My initial plan was to stay for just 2 days but i couldn't help but fall in love with the place, I couldn't have hoped to meet the people I met and we truly became friends for life. I'm staying in Rio for 1 month and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. A must stay if your coming to this beautiful city.

    The room we had was jam packed, felt like sardines. I have the feeling they just squeezed in an extra bunk bed just for carnaval. There were other rooms that were a lot more spacious. Staff were reasonably friendly, and location was great.

    The staff are great, they know everything & are so helpful! The location is great and everything is within walking distance or easily accessible via the underground. We left after just one uncomfortable night (even though we paid for 4!) The bunk beds are 3 high, my bed was the top one & had a period stain on! The room was very cramped with little room for storage. Only one fan even though it was 30 degrees and the air con came on in the middle of the night pointing at one bed and was freezing!

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
