We arrived Friday evening to a truly all-you-can-eat Brazillian BBQ and drink caipirinhas - starting our Rio trip off great! The hostel was very clean and we felt safe there. It is located in a nice area of Rio. But, to go out we had to take taxis (split with other hostelers from bar) 30-45 min to Lapa or other areas. The staff was very helpful and gave us all the info we needed to go on hikes, see the city, samba, and organized transport for a game at Maracana! Wish we could have stayed longer!
Cool hostel! Helpful staff. Great wifi, a bit slow when the common area is full but nothing to complain. Exceptionally clean rooms and bathrooms. Good location in a beautiful safe neighborhood near the beach, but a bit of a walk/run/ride to the nearest metro station (there will be a closer one soon though!). It definitely has a lemon spirit!!!
Muy buen lugar, fui con un amigo y la pasamos bárbaro. Muy buena onda todo el personal y la gran mayoría de la gente que se hospedó durante mi estadía. Volvería seguro!! abrazos
Excelente hostel, todo muy bueno !! las instalaciones, la limpieza y la mejor ubicación de todo Rio la verdad que volvería siempre sin dudarlo! ojala todos los hostels fueran así.

Highly reccomeneded, I had an amazing time here and would definatly come back. The staff are amazing especially Thiago. A great place to meet other solo travellers.
Lemon Spirit totally gets you into the Spirit! Located very close to the beach, offering many great trips and experiences and having a fun outside area for chill out and drinks at night it was a great first stay on my trip. The staff is awesome, always helpful and spreads a great mood making you feel home right away. Great parties at night! My highlight was a hike to the top of the two brothers seeing the sun rise above Rio.
Adorei a hospedagem, apesar de ter aproveitado pouco ele. Perfeito para quem quer conhecer pessoas bacanas e prolongar a noite. A praia está numa ótima localização, os banheiros são extremamente limpos e com uma boa quantidade, daqueles que você não precisa ficar esperando o outro sair para entrar. Café da manhã ótimo e perfeito pq vai até as 11h (para quem saiu na noite anterior). Todos os funcionários são atenciosos, o Thiago nos recepcionou muito bem, super descontraído :)Volto e recomendo

Fue DEMASIADO EXCELENTE ... Es la 2da que estoy ahí y verdaderamente ha sido muy bueno. Seguridad, ambiente, ubicación ... La pasé genial! El staff super amable y muy buena onda ... morí de risa con Tiago! ... Un abrazo a todos y espero volver PRONTO!
A great hostel which is in a fantastic location 1 block from the beach. The staff are great, very helpful and make this a great place to stop. I actually stopped at this hostel again for 4 nights at the end of my trip, and will definitely be back for sure! When in Rio...Lemon Spirit Hostel is THE place to stop!!!
best hostel I've ever been to! the staff is awesome, party every night (if you want to) and it's only 5 min to the beach!
Me encanto el hostel, la atmosfera y el personal siempre muy amable, simpatico y dispuesto a ayudar en todo lo que se necesite. El desayuno tambien me parecio muy bueno y completo(siempre frutas, pan frances y jamon y queso, mermeladas, cereales, jugos ). Muy limpio todas las instalaciones. Definitivamente volveria al mismo lugar!
Hay un problema con el AGUA CALIENTE de las duchas. Al estar tomando una ducha, repentinamente el agua sale MUY MUY CALIENTE, y después de eso sale FRIA Y MAS FRIA, y así sucede durante todo el tiempo de la ducha. Es decir, constantemente está cambiando la temperatura del agua, y a veces QUEMA LA PIEL POR ESTAR MUY MUY CALIENTE. Es muy incómodo bañarse con la temperatura del agua muy INESTABLE.
Absolutely wonderul place to stay. Some of the hostel workers could have been a little nicer, but everyone else was absolutely wonderful. Great location, a block away from the beach, near public transportation outlets and two blocks away from main shopping/food areas. Worth the stay!
it has been a wonderfull experience... i was there for a little while and it turned into my second home were i felt safe, happy, and met a lot of really nice people. the place was great. well located. good rooms, lobby, everything i really enjoyed my time there and will come back pretty soon :)
Only suggestion I would make is to add indivual lights for each bed in the dorm rooms, as the price is high for a hostel.
Eu passei o final de semana lá e tive uma ótima estadia. Têm programação para todos dias, todos muitos amigáveis principalmente o Thiago que me divertiu o tempo o todo. Com toda certeza voltarei !!
I highly recommend Lemon Spirit! I made great friends from everywhere, there's a good energy in the hostel, location is great, close to the beach and restaurants, safe area and helpful staff. And also you can have a caipirinha for free on the joining day! :)
Good hostel but most of the staff weren't very friendly.
Good place to stay.
