They even have a parrot and cat that wander around the hostel! The stay included breakfast of fruit, coffee, and sandwhiches/bread and dulce de leche or jam. The only negative is the... More

Only stayed for a night but they are tucked into a small favela at the north end of Copacabana. The place has several rooms and floors, and the whole place has cool art, especially the little tower at the top with hammocks. The hostel is also located a block away from Bar do David, a boteca in the favela with... More

My first trip to South America, so I wasn't really sure, what to expect. But as soon as I arrived, all doubts disappeared. Lisetonga is really beautiful hostel with family atmosphere. You just feel like at home. Staff was very helpful anytime I needed something, it's really close to not-so-crowded Leme beach and not to forget, they have happy hours... More

Hey there, I had a awesome time in this hostel. Very frienfly personal and a really familiar atmosphere. The kitchen and the restrooms are very clean! Maybe the best caipirinha I've ever enjoyed from a beautiful girl from uruguay! ;) You can't go wrong with this hostel! Randy from Germany :)

We still miss Lisetonga, our first hostel of our South American trip. After a rocky start where we showed up with our booking confirmation from their own website to find they were over booked, I didn't think i would be leaving a glowing review. However, Maria sorted us a cheaper hostel further up the hill for one night and patiently... More
