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!
