Great location, safe and clean. But the best is the staff and the atmosphere. Don t miss out on the salsa rehersal night they offer: it won t get more brasilian than this!

The staff spoke good English and was very helpful. Rooms were cleaned everyday and has enough bathrooms wih hot shower on each floor so we don't need to wait too long. I really enjoyed my stay here. It's in a safe area, close to the mall and a nice bike ride to copacabana. Would certainly come back and highly recommended.

Great hostel in a perfectly safe location, one block from Leblon Beach! The staff are incredible and will go out with you and make sure you're alright and having the best time. The hostel is set up perfectly to socialize and meet people. Lockers are spacious to fit every size backpack. Breakfast is good and they serve fresh fruit everyday! The cleaning ladies are amazing and are non-stop working. A lovely hostel to check out more-so because of the staff! Definitely coming back.

"Lemon Spirit" is one of my two favorite hostels in the world. The best showers in the whole of Brazil and potential of any hostel in South America. Rodrigo, Bea, Lucus, Natalia, Gaspa and company are awesome. Make sure you challenge Rodrigo to the pig game. If it can be helped stay in dorm 1, that is by far the best dorm. I stayed here for approximately 3weeks during my time in Brazil and it was everything I could wish for and more. Literally 5mins from Impanema, the world count can't begin to.

The activities that are organized by the hostel are great, the bartender/entertainer Rodrigo is terrific. One thing that I didn't like was the amount of people it accommodated, there were many people staying at the hostel. One night we all went out 15-20 people, made it difficult to organize unless someone from the hostel was there. Washrooms were decent, they could use more attendance. Morning breakfast was below average. The small bar inside is a money maker but worth it.

Nice hostel. Staff is ok, breakfast ok. Good atmosphere, nice bar, only a block away from the beach and in a very nice neighborhood.

It was expensive during our visit and had to block book due to the world cup. Good bar to meet everyone else at the hostel to plan a night out. The staff are really helpful, will invite you out with them or advise you on where else to go. Decent location next to the centre of Leblon and when the metro station opens this will be excellent to get around from. 2 problems: air con was out of action in my room for the entire stay and some of the showers were cold water only. Would stay here again!

Great interaction with the staff right through from booking to checking out. The hostel is pretty clean as far as they come; there were cleaners hanging around 24/7. The lockers available are great, just make sure you bring your own padlocks with you. The bar was small but adequate, really you needed to catch a 40 min bus or taxi ride to get to some of the more vibrant nightlife in Rio. The hostel is a minute walk from the beach though which was a massive plus.
