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.

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.

Great place to meet people. Nice and cosy. Great place to hang out during the day (if hungover/tired)

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

Great place in the best neighborhood of Rio. Really good staff, nice breakfast and clean. Just two things: 1.You have to buy every drink at their bar, which can make it a bit expensive for a long stay. 2.They don't allow anybody who isn't there to get in, not even to the common area.

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

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!
