Exceptionally clean hostel! Even make your beds! In a really nice part of Rio and close to the beach! A little far from the Metro but would highly reccommend to anyone wanting to stay close to the beach! Nicest part of the city Beaches!

Super hostel! Super friendly staff. Super location! The atmosphere is good. Nice big lockers for backpacks. Arranges tours that are a bit expensive, but on the other hand we got some free drinks at the bar! Recommended.

Great place to meet people. Nice and cosy. Great place to hang out during the day (if hungover/tired)

muy buen hostel, lo único que debería mejorar es su política de no aceptar tarjetas para el pago de excursiones y consumiciones.

Não gostei do atendimento de alguns recepcionistas, mostraram demasiado desinteresse em ajudar e responder questões diretas sobre o próprio hostel e localizações. Fui convidada a deixar a sala de estar e refeições enquanto jantava porque estavam fechando o ambiente, colocando cadeiras em cima das mesas (enquanto eu comia na mesma) e desligando as luzes. Quartos e banheiros confortáveis e limpos, café da manhã bem servido. Marlene, Fabi e equipe nota 10! Internet não funcionou no meu room 7.

+ Personalen som jobbar där är underbar, killen i baren är fantastisk. Härlig stämning på hostlet och arrangerade "hostelfester" på vardagar. Möjlighet att boka dagsturer via hostlet, som var jättebra. God frukost, rent, nya lakan vid ankomst. Handduk fanns att hyra för en billig peng, även den garanterat ren. 5 min promenad till stranden, i ett tryggt område. Nära till shopping, bankomat, supermarket och restauranger. - Ingen AC förrän 22.00

This place is highly rated for a reason: It's clean, has a great location (2 blocks from the beach and Leblon itself is pretty and very safe), but most importantly it has an amazing atmosphere--I was a solo traveler and it was SO easy to meet people here. Also Rodrigo (the bartender) is hilarious and everyone that works there is super informative. I'll be coming back!!

Lemon Spirit is in a fantastic location, only 2 mins from Leblon beach and in a very safe neighborhood. I will defiantly be staying here again when next in Rio!

Rodrigo the barman creates a great atmosphere which makes it easy to meet other travellers. He is also very good at providing information on where to go out. Lots of clean bathrooms (could do with some paper towels to dry your hands). Great location
