Many travelers find the hostel experience attractive because of the ease of meeting new people, the common areas and, above all, the lower cost compared to conventional hotels. But sometimes shared dorms put off some tourists looking for a little more privacy. If you're the type who loves a hostel atmosphere but sharing a room with strangers doesn't appeal to you, how about a hostel that only offers private rooms?

El Misti Suites, located in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, was conceived with the aim of pleasing the traveler who loves the integration in common areas, the freedom and low cost of a hostel but still wants to feel like they have their own little corner during the trip.
