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

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

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.
