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!!

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.

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.

The Lemon Spirit Hostel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms and communal areas are fantastic. The travel books to peruse whilst you`re there are really useful too.

FAB staff. Arrange tours etc for you. Do lots to help you out. Everything was good but only points I'd make is that it lacked character for me. I didn't get a raw Brazilian experience from it but this is COMPLETELY subjective! Also it was SO expensive for what it was. But I want to reiterate that the staff really were amazing and fun.

I really enjoyed my stay there! The hostel has a very good atmosphere , exceptional location ( 1 block from beach) and a very dedicated staff. Beds were comfy ( 6 female dorm) and I found the hostel clean. Breakfast was good enough . But what I liked the most was the bar and outdoors area that allows people to interact . it´s a great choice for who´s is traveling solo. I am def going back there and referring to my friends !

This was the most fun stay I've ever had in a hostel. Staff and travelers were friendly and there were fun activities every day/night! I went during the (US) Thanksgiving break and everything I wanted in a vacation was there: beach, bargain shopping, tour of Rio, even got to watch a football match in Maracana. All of which were arranged through the hostel. The night parties organized by the travelers were wonderful too! Defintely recommend.
