Such a great time at Lemon Spirit. Muito Obrigado!! miss you!
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

By far one of the best hostels I've stayed in! Best place to be for carnival especially! The staff are so friendly and helpful and make a great atmosphere (especially Rodrigo and Natalia!) the place is always clean and tidy and the location is ideal and so safe! Can't wait to go back and celebrate carnival again here! Thanks guys!!
Rodrigo is an absolute hero best hostel worker we've seen having travelled the world!!!
Had an amazing stay at Lemon Spirit! great atmosphere, the staff were sooo helpful and fun! The place was kept very clean and the common area is really fun to hang out in- met lots of great people! Much love to Rodrigas, Nino and Natalia for their energy and hospitality - we will be back to visit!!! xx Amy & Liam
hostel quite good in overall, however the beds are extremely noisy.
Perfect location, wonderful staff. They've even helped me out, as I've got overcharged at my hang gliding tour. Thanks Lemon Spirit for a great time in Rio!
Great hostel. Great location. Nothing bad to say about this hostel
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

Lemon spirit is in an amazing location with good breakfast
This is THE place to be in Rio, the location couldn't be better (one of the safest neighbours in rio and 2 blocks from the beach), plenty of lockers (bring your lock!) and clean bathrooms available, awesome atmosphere with really nice common areas (great for meeting people even if u travel alone), and of course, the best staff you could ever wish for! thank u Rodrigo, Natalia, Lucas and Nino! Will be back soon!
This hostel was awesome. The beds are super comfy and the place is nice and clean. Great place to meet other backpackers but those who opt for an early night can also have a restful sleep cause it's not too loud. Staff were cool and helpful.
They only check email every 5 hours, so I was unable to get a transfer even though I started trying 24 hours before. There was no mention of this or apology when I arrived. The one guy was extremely unfriendly and didn't want to talk or even smile once. You are forced to rent a blanket if you are cold! Ridiculous. They screwed up the Favela tour. Told me I had to move rooms or pay a penalty, but wouldn't give a reason and eventually let me stay. The one girl was quite friendly. Don't recommend
Located close to the beach, plenty of lockers and bathrooms available, clean rooms with ac at night, great atmosphere, nice terrace, possibility to book activities, easy to meet people to party with, slightly too expensive (but I guess it's normal for Rio in high season).
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.
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!
