El Misti Hostel Ipanema

Hi ,

I hope you are well and thank you for your interest in volunteering here at El Misti!

I’ve taken a look at your profile and I think you might be a good fit here. Can you go into more detail on your skills and on when you are planning to come to Rio? When would you like to start, and for how long could you stay?

We have plenty of volunteering opportunities at our hostels and with the NGO we are partnered with. Edumais is an NGO that teaches English and entrepreneurship to kids here in the favela. If this is of interest to you, and you’re happy with our culture (check out our YouTube channel!), let us know and we’ll be in touch.

Welcome. We would like to welcome you to our family, a crew based on the love of traveling, the love for Rio de Janeiro and for the love of sharing. Come to know about us better and be even closer to our wonderful culture. El Misti is a chain of hostels with 19 years of experience and 5 branches that make Ipanema, Copacabana and Búzios even more special.

Here, everything that is shared is much better, so we combine our travel and love experiences to provide the most authentic life experience to other travelers. Our mission is to transform the dream trip of our guest into reality, building a relationship between them, our marvelous city, other travelers and other social causes. We believe that everything that is shared is much better, because of that we try to put together our travel experiences and love to provide the best experience of life to other travelers.

I absolutely loved my stay at El Misti. The location is perfect, only 2 minutes from Ipanema beach away and walkable to many things. You get free entry to many clubs, which even enriches this experience!
I felt very warm welcomed and accepted very quickly by the employees. If you need specific changes in the schedule, there were always making it possible. I enjoyed every day here and will definitely come back!

Marie was an incredible volunteer, we would definitely recommend her. She helped us a lot!! both in bar duties at night and leading activities for our guests in the morning.
Very smiling and kind, making it a nice experience for everyone.



O El Misti tem uma energia maravilhosa, isso não se pode negar. Todos os benefícios que os voluntários recebem são realmente muito bons! Se você gosta de festa, quer viver realmente o Rio de Janeiro e quer ficar perto da praia, esse é o lugar perfeito! Para minha experiencia a única ciosa que deveria ter sido melhor foi a comunicação, eu passei por algumas mudanças na equipe, e não me senti acolhida e compreendida após isso. Eu sou muito grata pelo aprendizado sobre marketing, os staff e os voluntarios, me senti parte da familia mesmo! E agradeço ao Pato por ser sempre prestativo e empatico!

Minha experiência no El Misti foi incrivel, desde a conexão com a equipe e com os hóspedes, café da manhã, instalações, tarefas. Conheci gente que vou levar pra vida toda e tive muitas experiências legais que o próprio hostel proporciona como festas e passeios em grupo. Recomendo e espero poder voltar em breve.

El Misti Ipanema es un lugar increíble! Donde tanto voluntarios como el personal que labora aquí son un gran equipo juntos, hay un ambiente de trabajo en equipo y compañerismo que en casos se ha tornado en amistad debido a la apertura, los horarios se respetan al colaborar con el hostal y las facilidades que ofrecen son óptimas para tener una grandiosa experiencia, me quedo con una gran aventura vivida y mucha diversión, el personal es amable y acogedor, me divertí mientras trabajaba y conocía personas nuevas

My experience at The Misti was incredible. I connected with many people from different parts of the world, and the most fun part was all the parties. This hostel has a party every day. If you are a foreigner looking for a party and to meet people, this place is definitely for you.
