We spent a week there and had the best time ever. With its coziest atmosphere and great vibe, Lisetonga offers a great location close to Copacabana. So many good aspects and above all the unforgettable people we met! Both guests and staff contributed to this amazing experience. Definitely recommending!

This hostel is pretty well located about 10-15 minutes walk from Copacabana beach, at the top of a hill. The walk can be a little tiring but the hostel is really chill, with decent beds and a good included breakfast. The bathrooms are also clean and the hot water is good. The rooms also have airconditioning which is a bonus.... More

A great hostel! Located in a beautiful old building in a very interesting area: the favela Babilonia. All the major tourist attractions are close and easy to reach and the amazing Leme beach (neighboring Copacabana) is just a five minutes walk away. The atmosphere is very family like, the staff is very friendly, helpful and a very funny crowd! All... More

When you first arrive to Rio de Janeiro you are most likely, after reading some travel guides, scared of everything that is not around Copacabana. Then taxi drops you off in the beginning of favela Babilônia, in the night like us, and you think this is the last day of your life...or at least your bags. Forget all of this!... More

Spent 3 weeks at this hostel when I only planned on staying for 1. The staff are very helpful and talkative especially Rick, Victor and Pierre. The facilities are cleaned everyday by Angelica (who's hilarious) and showers are usually warm and breakfast is pretty awesome! The hostel is in a favela, but I felt extremely safe as there are police... More
