I can really recommend this hostel! The only thing what was bad was that my towel was gone when I left it on a chair.

Its location is great but staff is not really helpful and provide enough information so you have to be pushy or they should like you?! Remember they don't give keys, we were told because the security is high with the cameras etc. and there i no need that so you must have your own lockers otherwise will have to buy it from them. Breakfast is OK, atmosphere is good, right near the beach, but I wish the stuff could speak more English, similey and willing to speak up. Thanks for reading.

A really decent hostel kept up to a very high standard. It has a very good vibe. Good breakfast and the hostel was very clean. Special mention to Lucas, one of the hostel workers, who provided a very friendly welcome and excellent service on arrival. To be very very critical the location is not the best in Rio (far from the metro and quieter than Ipanema) though Leblon is very lovely neighbourhood and the hostel is 2mins from the beach. An excellent hostel.

Amazing hostel! Good breakfast, clean showers, enough storage space, near the beautiful beach. The hostel has a bar, everyone is therefore sitting outside and drinking beers. Bar closed around 11, so there is not much noise and the party just goes on somewhere in the city. Bartender Rodrigo is very nice and makes you feel at home. Very easy to meet people here! Would definitely stay here again. One of the safest neighborhoods, never felt unsafe as a female traveling alone.

Todo resulto muy bueno, supero mis espectativas. El personal fue muy amable, la limpieza muy buena y la buena onda en general es muy alegre. Lo unico que diria a modo de sugerencia es que extiendan el horario de permanencia en los espacios comunes....para algunos nos resulta muy temprano considerando que es un lugar de playa y diversion.... Gracias por hacer que mi estadia haya sido muy buena!!!! Seguro volvere al Lemon...

Beautiful area of Leblon surrounds this hostel. Plenty of places to eat, go to bars and only one block from the beach. I much preferred staying here than anywhere else in rio as I felt safe even at night walking around Leblon compared to copacabana. Hostel has great beds, good internet and the staff will organise tours for you. Highly recommend, worth the extra money.

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.

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!

Had an amazing stay at Lemon Spirit during Carnaval, staff were excellent, free drinks at the bar on a couple of the nights making it very easy to meet other guests, great atmosphere. Beach just at the bottom of the road. Definitely recommend this hostel to everyone
