This hostel is great. Amazing staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, and a great location only a few minutes away from the beach. There is a clean kitchen you can use to cook, and there is a social area where you can meet fellow travellers. Don't hesitate to book here! If you need a ride to the airport they will call... More

Agreeing with the previous reviews of it being a fun hostel in a great location, our stay began great. But in the end We felt really let down by the staff during our stay (apart from Arnya, who was amazing to deal with), but the male staff were rude and made us feel really unwelcome. There were also stringent rules... More

Listonga was the best part of my brazil trip. The hostel is owned by a lovely couple who actually work there and interact with their guests. The staff was warm, accommodating, helpful, and fun. The facilities were very clean, and same goes for the rooms. The breakfast was fair and it is located in a cool neighborhood with lots of... More

The location is great! The people are great, honesty I can't say one bad thing about this place! We stayed here for a week and then went to a b&b and wished we didn't leave so we rebooked for another week. If you want a place that's close to the beach and has really friendly staff then definitely stay here!... More

An ambition of mine was to attend a World Cup abroad and the prospect of Brazil 2014 was something I couldn’t turn down. Coupled with the prospect of meeting two of my best friends who have been travelling around South America for the last year, it was the perfect scenario. After securing flights the next step was to book accommodation.... More

I'll preface this by saying it's not a bad hostel. The service is good, the rooms decent, the atmosphere upbeat...if you're looking for a fun hostel this could definitely be your holy grail. But this is also definitely a place that caters to the party goers, and does little (read: nothing) to ensure or enforce any sort of quiet time... More

I came with a group of friends and we had a great time here. Very nice building and good location close to the beach of Copacabana, where you are able to see typical Rio day to day lifestyle. Excellent place to meet people, so you'll always find someone to hang out or just to have a couple of drinks. Super... More

We had a perfect stay at this wonderful place. The staff is VERY helpful and friendly. The hostel is very clean and well organised. The beds are comfortable. Nice common area to socialise. Don't worry because of the favela. People there is friendly and not agressive at all. The little hill you will have to "climb" is neither a problem... More

The people and staff there were definitely what made my experience at Lisetonga and in Rio. From the moment I stepped into the place, the lady behind the counter was introducing me to a fellow traveller who brought me around to the local cambio to exchange my USD for local currency, showing me the FIFA fan fest at the beach...

As a Starwood Platinum and Hilton Diamond member, I have pretty high status and expectations for where I stay. I stayed here because it was the World Cup and I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg when it was only I. Booking with the hostel was easy – they asked for a prepayment and I paid the... More
