Great bathroom facilities.

Lemon Spirit is a super nice hostel, AC in the dorms which is great and bathrooms are cleaned around the clock are there are always plenty available to use. the kitchen is well equipped and the hostel offers and organises plenty of tours and activities.1 block from Leblon beach - but a total pain to get to Lapa/centro/santa teresa area from here, but as we only went there at night to go out wasn't the biggest issue. not the biggest party hostel but would defiantly recommend to stay here!

This is a fantastic hostel. Very clean, in a safe area and easy to meet people/arrange nights out. Close to the beach and shop. Late breakfast is good and staff were always friendly and helpful.

One of the best hostel I´ve ever been. 1 block from Ipanema, one of the best beaches in Rio. Very very clean.

O hostel oferece quartos confortáveis e um café da manhã que, apesar de simples, é bom e completo. No geral, agrada muito. Os banheiros são, em sua maioria, limpos.

It was a great hostel. Very European-like. Just one block from the beach and the area is really nice as well. We wanted to go back when we got back to Rio but there was no availability :( . It has lockers to put your bags under the beds with your padlock. Really cool people!

I had an excellent stay at the Lemon Spirit Hostel. It was very lively and social hostel. It is very easy to meet people. Simply grab a Caipirinha or beer from their bar, and sit outside in their sitting area with all the travellers. Spent many happy hours there! The staff were fantastic and very helpful, and took us out to some great places nearby. My only regret is I could not stay longer! Thanks everyone!!

A estrutura é ótima, mas o melhor do hostel são os funcionários, desde as moças que cuidam do café-da-manhã até o pessoa que trabalha na recepção. É um galera que te faz se sentir em casa. Meu único pedido é que tenha ar-condicionado na recepção, pois o calor do Rio, mata qualquer um.

El hostel es el mejor al que he ido! La gente es espectacular, agradable, buena gente. El hostel es hermoso y si bien no tiene todos los lujos es mas que recomendable para cualquier tipo de huesped. La ubicacion es muy buena, a una cuadra de la playa en un zona muy segura y linda, la limpieza es impecable pero lo mejor es la atencion y la gente con la que te encontras.

The hostel is in a great location one block away from Leblon beach. The bathrooms and common areas were clean. Everyone in the hostel was friendly. The staff was hit or miss. Some people were helpful and others not so much.

Très bon hostel. Très bien placé, juste à coté de la plage de Leblon et les réceptionniste sont très à l'écoute et permettent beaucoup d'excursion. Le barman parle Francais, Espagnol, Portugais et Anglais. L'ambiance est très sympa.

One of the best hostels I have been to. Many hostels provide good facilities but samba green has more than that, they provide you with a home, a family. The owner Carlos and also Felipe went out of their way to take me and other people staying to places no tourists would normally see. Many activities or events put on by the hostel are usually free of charge, they are not in it to make money, just to provide a good time, and spend time with fellow travellers.

More care on the transfer service.
