I stayed here over the ,New Year's celebration. It's a great spot. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the hostel itself is clean, and the breakfast is quite good. During the evening they have a happy hour with 2x1 drinks...who doesn't like that? The hostel is in a great location in Leme. It is close to the beach and... More

I stayed here over New Year's. It's a great spot. Everyone there is friendly, the hostel itself is clean, and the breakfast is quite good. The hostel is in a cool part of Leme...close to the beach and shops, but up on the hill away from the traffic.

Really nice hostel with beautiful decor 5 mins from Leme beach on the border of a favela, there is a slight hill of maybe 5mins but don't let this deter you as there is bike taxis all day. Manager is lovely and very friendly. They have small kitchen facilities, one laptop, loads of clean tolilets and showers, a lookout area... More

Stayed here in a dorm for 7 days before xmas. Hostel is great value and location is good and safe albeit up a steep hill 10 min from leme beach (but taxi bikes available if your lazy). Hostel is clean, plenty of toilets and showers. Kitchen is small and can get crowded but the breakfast they serve is excellent and... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Lisetonga hostel. As a solo traveller and my first stop on my South America trip it was very welcoming and friendly. The building is bright and airy with lots of common areas. The breakfast was really good and so were the dorm rooms. It was quite loud in the evening but I think everywhere... More

We stayed in a private Bedroom for two nights. The bedroom was very nice as the whole hostel and everything was clean also. The staff tried to help as much as they could, but didn't know every detail about the sight seeing places in Rio. It is therefore helpful if you know in advance where you want to go and... More

I have stayed in a number of hostels across Rio and by far this is the best. Management are very welcoming and the hostel is clean. The hostel is a walk from the beach and you get the real Brazillian experience staying here as the hostel has many local people living close by which I loved. The breakfast is very... More

This accommodation is unique, in a great location to copacabana and the atmosphere is one a kind. Everything was clean, service was wonderful and they even have scooter rentals available for you to navigate the city. I would stay here again any time. The rates were reasonable as well. You can't beat this place!

Fantastic little hostel up in the beginning of the Favela overlooking Leme Beach (next to Copacabana). Not dangerous at all, and mototaxis will take you up the hill for 2Reals. Really worth a stay here as the Staff were excellent, drinks were good and cheap and the location means the beach is a mere 5 mins walk away. Great restaurants... More
