el misti
Friendly staff with good access to WiFi. Excellent location in Botafogo. Had a 6 bed shared but was triple bunkbed and floor was loose so made lots of noise when people walked by into the adjacent shared room. Sprayed myself with mosquito repellent but was still covered so suggest bringing a net. Window would not keep shut. Barman was friendly but he had two nights off so the bar was not open which was disappointing. If your like me and you visit places for just a few days and to actually see them and not hang around in your accommodation and your on a budget then I would recommend.

3/5 Okay

Great location and staff but the conditions are :(
This was the only place of stay I found during the 2014 World Cup to be not too far from the beaches and not too close to the favelas. Stayed for 6 nights. Went to the beach by metro (Botafogo station) almost everyday. Also booked a tour to Sanguero samba school (80 reais) through the staff. The hostel can also help book favela tour and paragliding session near Pedro da Gavea.
