I wish I could give MORE than Excellent for this hostel. I had the BEST time here with the very best people. I would go back in a heartbeat if I could - the hostel was clean, super friendly and excellently located. I miss it heaps!

Great hostel, great rooms, good showers, good brekkie. One of the guys on staff wasnt as good as the other, it was like we were annoying him, the one on nights. But the other - the one the morning shift until like 3pm was awesome and helped my friend with her flights and even called the airline to help resolve a problem! Above and beyond!

It is a little too pricy during the weekend but it's definitely a good hostel. Located right next to Leblon beach but far away from the lapa area (45 reals approx). Breakfast is good and rooms are not overcrowded. Staff could smile a little more!

Nice Hostel but a bit more likely a Flashpacker. If you like some comfort, Lemon Tree will be your best bet. If you're a bit more the alternative-traveller-type, you probably won't like it that much. Good value for money and really walking distance to the beach.

Awesome hostel in one of the best neighborhoods in Rio! Traveled by myself for a long weekend, and the staff was super helpful in coordinating tours, restaurant recommendations, etc. Not the most social hostel I've ever stayed in, but still pretty easy to meet people at the bar. By far the best Wi-Fi I've ever had at a hostel too, big plus! Excellent location if you're looking to spend time on the beach. Get breakfast or grab an Acai from Big Poli's on the corner if you know what's good for you!

Great hostel in a great location & very clean. Everything was great but felt like the staff could be a bit less serious and interact with the guest more. The best person there was Rodrigo he was always happy and smiling and interacting with everyone. I also didn't like that if you wanted a blanket you had to pay for it. Towels I understand but blankets?

We really enjoyed our stay in the Lemon Spirit Hostel :) the atmosphere there was awesome, the bar in the evening, the people hanging around together ... even the staff would ask everybody in a such adorable way to join in. The reccommendations from the staff were always great ... made our stay in Rio just perfect! Would always come back if ever returning to Rio!!!

This is one of the best hostels and best locations in Rio esp if you are new to Latin American world. The guys there are very knowledgeable of the area and give you best advise. Pick this place for a peaceful and fun=filled experience of Rio.
