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.

It's the second time I go to Rio, and the second time I stay at Lemon Spirit... everything is still as great as the first time: location, staff, cleanliness... and once again the atmosphere was excellent and I've met great people. I'm definitely staying at Lemon Spirit next time I go to Rio.
