El Misti - fun, well organised but damp ... we started our trip here. The reception staff were very knowledgeable and eager to help. The pizza party was a good reason to get to know other travellers.

We welcome travelers and other good people to El Misti, where we offer you a super combination when visiting Rio de Janeiro a relaxing time, in a nice local area that is close to everything, but hidden away from the tourists! Here, you will enjoy good accommodation but most of all, a stay in a different and entertaining house, that you will never forget!

Our hostel is located in the Bairro of Botafogo. It is next to the beach of Botafogo and close to the amazing Sugarloaf. This area is filled with everything that makes the life of the Cariocas (locals) bars, restaurants, old men playing cards in the street and kids playing ball in the alleys. There is a buzz of life with mixed with Brazilian tranquility!

We are in the middle of this metropolitan paradise, in a small, closed, safe and quiet street, only 100 meters from the metro. When you enter the door of the beautiful charming antique house of El Misti, you will know you have entered the house of happiness!

To get to the city centre, Copacabana, Ipanema, Santa Teressa, Corcovado or any other parts of the marvelous city you will have no problem! Both the metro and buses are within 100 meters and they can transfer you to wherever you like with the click of your fingers. Copacabana and its world famous waves are only 5 minutes away!

We offer you dorms or private rooms in a clean and comfortable atmosphere. There is an open kitchen, chilling area with cable TV, book, and games, with the house DJ spinning the best of best music from chill out to dancehall reggae.

With the mix of Cariocas and international people who stay in Rio because they love the place, we are able to provide you with unique service and tips to the wonders of wonderful city and to your further travel.

And we have, of course, friends who offer all kinds of tours from hang gliding to rock climbing. When you arrive at our city, whether you come by bus or plane, we pick you up for free and drive you right in to the universe of El Misti!

You never know what is going to happen here. No days are alike, but the bottom line is it all depends of the guests and friends at the time who are enjoying their stay in the house of mystery! People have a habit of staying here for longer then planned!

We hereby invite the people of the world to have a splendid time in Rio de Janeiro and El Misti!
