Neighbourhood
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

Hay habitaciones privada para tres personas? Saludos
Hola! si hay habitaciones para tres personas, yo fui con dos amigas, el baño estaba fuera, pero la verdad prácticamente fue nuestro ya que el misti es grande y con hartos recovecos, al parecer en el otra ala se hospedaba más gente, pero en la privada de 3 que yo pedí..nunca me tocó esperar por el baño. siempre estaba vacío y nunca alguien me tocó esperando pasar.

"the cheapes one would be nice"
"I dont know, if I will go back to the misti I would choice the some room! 202"
"the best room are the rooms with a private bathrooms!"
"I was in the room with private toilet and this was amaizing"
"Nice, friendly and welcoming staff! Good caipirinhas. The condition of the building/hostel is quite poor (mold and holes in the ceiling of bathrooms etc.). All the bathrooms were cleaned every day though. The floor of our dorm was quite nasty, not cleaned at all. Make sure you take with you a towel! "
