Hostelworld says:

Lemon Spirit Hostel is very highly rated here on Hostelworld for its location in the affluent Leblon neighbourhood, just off Ipanema Beach. Guests tell us 'the staff always welcome you with a big smile and a caipirinha' and create a 'relaxed, friendly and fun' atmosphere. The hostel has spacious, clean rooms and individual bathrooms. We like their outdoor area, described by one traveller as a 'cute little terrace where you have breakfast and drinks, with two hammocks'. Several Hostelworld reviewers have said they would 'definitely' stay here again.

    I think what puts us ahead of the rest is our prime location on an awesome piece of Leblon Beach, next to Ipanema, two malls, two supermarkets and bus routes going anywhere in the city.
    The Botanical Gardens, just 15 minutes away by bus, are an awesome ride.
    In this neighbourhood the theatres are very popular, especially on rainy days, since the films are subtitled in Portuguese instead of being dubbed. There's two movie theatres across the block and six cinemas at Shopping Leblon, three blocks from the hostel.
    Personally I like to recommend a visit to Parque Lage. If a person doesn't have a deep interest in the Botanical Gardens, at the park the visitor gets a bit of the environment of nature, beyond the artistic atmosphere of the school of visual arts in a beautiful mansion that includes the excellent Cafe du Lage.
    For amusement, guests mostly enjoy the beach, one block from the hostel. During the night, depending on the day of the week, they have different options, from the famous Lapa Street Party to the Favela Funk Party.
    Our guests are aged between 23 and 30 years - people looking for comfort, but without losing the atmosphere of the hostel, always looking to meet new people and enjoy the maximum of what the city can offer.
