The location of this hostel is good as it is located on a hill at one end of Copacabana beach. It is a five minute walk from the beach. It is a bit hard to get to with baggage because of the steep slope on which it is located and finding parking here could be quite hard. The interiors are... More

Hello and thank you for staying with us ;-) We just want to let you know that Jack (cute little kitten) and Raul (black cat with beautiful tail) have moved on to seek new adventures in the neighbourhood. We stayed with Ester (amazonian parrot) and Camila (white cat). ;-) Safe trips. More

This hostel was the best one I've ever visited! The people were so friendly; I was completely new to the area and they were extremely kind about helping me out. Also, the location was amazing, as it was within short walking distance of the beach. I would love to go back one day!

Everything you needed in a hostel. Clean, staff are super helpful and it's close to the beach! Stayed a second time after visiting Ilha Grande. Not a party hostel, but has a good vibe! You also get a good workout from the hill, though there are motorbike taxis if you're not feeling fit.

Lisetonga is charming house in Babilonia, a pacified favela between Botafogo and Copacabana. The price range is between R$29 and R$39 which in my experience you can't get something decent with that money, but this is not the case. Lisetonga provides a complete breakfast, comfortable rooms, free computer and a great helpful staff, most of them talk spanish, english and... More

A small hostel close to a super friendly pacified favela and just a short stroll to copacabana beach. You get hammocks, a parrot, great breakfast, great staff and don't miss valentina making the cheapest and best caprhianas in the area by a mile. If you want it all come here.

They have a washing machine which you can use for a very reasonable price and the people who stay here are easy to talk to. The only problems we encountered was the way to... More

It was the first time I stayed at a hostel and I have to say, staying at Lisetonga was great! Location is great, close to Copacabana beach (about 10 minutes on foot). Breakfast was good, a lot of fruit, bread, juice, etc. The staff was cool, Ofir and Carol were really nice and welcoming. My favorite part of the hostel... More
