This is a sweet place with a lovely patio for breakfast and quite a fun social scene. It's in a cool location, close to Copacabana without being in the midst of it. Care has gone into the décor. Overall a very nice place.

Excellent location, literally 10 minutes walk from Copacabana and Leme beach, underground and Bus stops close by that take you to whatever touristic point in Rio and excellent vibe... More

The hostel itself has a lot of character. I love that there is an inside and outside dining area. The rooms were very clean... More

I stayed at Lisetonga for 2 weeks in March. From the second i arrived I couldn't have been more happy with the cleanliness and of course the staff. Being Canadian it was nice to have fluent English speaking people that work there. My boy Rick who works the front desk was our savior. Constantly going out of his way to... More

I was travelling alone and found this hostel via trip advisor. I came there without a reservation, it was my first night in Rio and it was very rainy.. But they took care of me, found me a bed, everyone was very friendly, staff was nice, I felt great. Better to stay there if you're looking for fun and people... More

I stayed at Lisetonga for about two weeks, and I liked it very much! I was only supposed to stay for a week, but I kept extending my stay because it was so easy, well-located, and the staff was very friendly. I felt very safe and well taken care of. I was attending a wedding, and I needed to iron... More
