Arguably the greatest hostel in Rio, only bad part of our experience was the noise and inconsideration from other guests. Location could not be better!

Surely this must be the best hostel in Rio?! I have just left and am already thinking about when I can go back! Such a great place. The staff are fantastic. I was worried about my swollen feet and ankles but Bia helped me so much. She makes great caipirinhas too. I felt really at home here. The beds are comfy, showers lovely, the cleaning staff do such a good job. It is spotless. It's a well organised, secure, friendly and fun hostel, right by the beach. I highly recommend to everyone.

We absolutely loved our stay here, it was a lovely hostel with really friendly staff, nice accommodation and the breakfast wasn't half bad. We even made some nice friends here too- I would definitely recommend staying here and would go back in a heartbeat- the free Caprinha always helps too!

Excellent staff who really make the hostel what it is. The breakfast was great, the air con in the rooms strong. Bathrooms always clean and the cleaning staff work around the clock to always make the place spotless. Individual lockers in the rooms and outside the rooms. One minute walk to the beach/shops/restaurants/supermarket. We met lots of cool people but the best thing about this hostel are the amazing staff who went above and beyond. Thanks guys, you are all amazing - Ed & Kalyn

I cannot say enough amazing things about this hostel! Really this hostel became my "home-away-from-home" not just for me, but for many other travelers I met - the staff was exceptional and went above and beyond expectations to make my stay personable. Incredibly clean facilities - even smelled of natural lemongrass cleaner. Great outdoor hang-out area, and located in a prime location between shopping street and beach in a safe neighbourhood of Leblon. Don't miss staying here! Thank you staff!

This location was insane, and the facilities were incredible. The atmosphere could have been better, but i think maybe that was a reflection of the space and just the crowd. Big shout out to Rodrigo, he was a huge part of why we liked Lemon Spirit, even if our stay was short.

Nos atendieron muy bien, principalmente Rodrigo, que nos dio buenas indicaciones, sugerencias y nos ayudó en todo. Lo que sí creo que es indispensable mejorar es el hecho de que solamente hay aire acondicionado en los cuartos en la noche. El calor de Rio es demasiado insoportable como para no poder contar con un cuarto donde uno se pueda quedar descansando un rato del calor. Creo que por el precio deberían contar con este servicio básico. Si no fuera por esto, mi puntuación sería

Despite being simple, this hostel is cozy and very enjoyable. Staff was great, full of tips and very friendly. Location is amazing, literally one block from Leblon/Ipanema beach and closeby the bars' area. Bathrooms are individual (this was AWESOME), and the bar has good drinks. The outside area is good to make friends, too. I'd definetelly reccomend the hostel.

This hostel is 100% the best hostel you can stay in whilst in Rio. Perfect location moments away from the beach and the staff are absolutely amazing they make the place, there is no task too big, they are always happy to help. The cleaners work tirelessly, so the place is spotless. Rodrigo and Natalia are fantastic and absolutely made our stay, so nice they are more then welcome to stay with us in London. In fact all the staff are great. We Stayed 5 days longer then planned ... Defo book here !!

This hostel is close to perfection. Everything is thought about. The location is great, though its in Leblon which is not that close to the main attractions, but is compensated by being close to the beach in a safe area. Wifi, A/C, breakfeast and common area are all very good
