O staff, a limpeza e a localização são excelentes, mas os equipamentos precisam de renovação/manutenção mais rigorosas. Desde um simples teclado que não tecla "e" e "r", até um ar condicionado que não funciona corretamente, passando por um chuveiro que não mistura bem quente/frio. De resto, não tenho nada a reclamar. Passei ótimos momentos lá.

Safe place for travelers as it has a proper security system. Great place to meet people. Staff at first do not look accomodating but they are helpful when asked. I just cant help comparing it to other staff in other hostels who are vey approachable and have 24 hours english speaking staff, this hostel doesnt. Location is great but.

Very clean hostel. Not the best vibe. We stayed in nicer hostels in Rio for a cheaper price.

This the perfect hostel in Richmond. Granted, it delivers the usual things expected from a top rated hostel. However the people running it truly created a wonderful experience for me. My thanks and shout outs go to the Lemon team. Lucas for his unlimited Caprinha making, Renato for his pearls of wisdom on a daily basis, Thiago -to the man that knows everything that has to offer in riot and the best dance moves in riot. And finally to Natalia who was an amazing host and friend.

This is the best hostel I've been to. Never been anywhere in my life where the atmosphere gets people talking so well. Nothing forced in any way, you can chill reading a book alone or grab a beer and pull up a chair with a group. And the staff are so helpful it just makes life a breeze. Much less intimidating than other hostels, that I left my booking with other hostels in the area after 2 nights and booked back in here. I wouldn't even consider staying somewhere else if I returned to Rio.

We really enjoyed our stay at a Lemon Spirit, the showers were hot which is always a bonus and you get your own locker under your bed big enough to fit in a rucksack! All the staff were really friendly and helpful , one of the best hostels we have stayed in so far, would highly recommend lemon spirit !

We stayed for five nights in a mixed 6 bed room and loved it! One of the most social hostels either of us had been to. Great opportunities to meet people and do things together. The staff was super friendly and breakfast was superb!

Los baños del hostel son muy limpios. La atención es muy buena. Renato y Natalia son muy buena onda. El aire acondicionado funciona cuando ellos quieren y no te dan el control remoto para poder manejar la temperatura.

Acho que foi o hostel mais legal que já fiquei. Ótima localização e funcionários atenciosos, principalmente o Lucas, Thiago e a Marlene (não lembro ao certo o nem dela, trabalha na cozinha). Clima muito gostoso. Volto sem pensar duas vezes.
