The hostel is in a great location, a nice relatively safe and quiet area of Rio. The facilities are good enough though I would have preferred safer "feeling" lockers in a more discreet location. We had a double room which was not very comfortable and was in the building next door. Overall I felt we got value for money and... More

Spent three nights in this Hostel. Nice place affordable for a first contact with Rio de Janeiro. The shower and the room was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. (they called several time the airport because my luggage didn't arrive at first). Leblon is a nice neighborhood, the Hostel is well placed. Not to far from the beach (maybe... More

The hostel is well located, in the best area of Rio. The common area is really clean and well decorated, but not so warm and welcoming as most hostels. Don't expect a young atmosphere or a place to socialize with backpackers from all over the world. Although they have good rooms and average bathroom, the price is really expensive and... More

The hostel is really nice and very clean. It's in a safe location in Leblon near restaurants, the beach is a five minute walk. Great breakfast. Calm and relaxed atmosphere. The staff was not very friendly but they're very efficient. If I ever went back to Rio and needed a place, I would go back to Leblon Spot Design.

I was in a shared 4-bed dorm for two and a half weeks during the World Cup, and I was very happy with my stay. The bedrooms were basic but clean and the bathroom was exceptionally clean despite being shared by a large number of people. The atmosphere was a lot more calm and relaxed than in most hostels, which... More

Had a good stay. Staff was nice, location is very good and safe. Some downsides: only one key and light for the dorm is very annoying. Not enough plugs. Bathroom is very small but clean. Breakfast ok. Best thing is the common tvroom to meet other guests.

The best hostel in Rio, in a great neighborhood, Leblon. Congrats for the upkeep, clean and cozy. Just a few minutes walk from the beach. Several options of restaurants and night life in the surroundings, and also a fare variety of stores. Easy access to buses and the subway. A great stay for guests that look for a quiet and... More

Nice clean peaceful hostel at the far end of ipenema beach. Great free breakfasts and only 10 min walk from the beach. This is a quiet hostel so if you want to party, prob best choosing a different hostel, but if you want a clean, friendly hostel near the beach. If recommend this one.

This hostel is cozy and well-designed, made for young travelers looking for comfort at reasonable prices. There are also private rooms w/ bathrooms! Great location, street full of restaurants and bars ( a bit noisy during the night) couple of blocks from the beach and Ipanema. Breakfast is simple but good! The only thing I did not appreciate is the... More
