My wife and I recently stayed here on our trip to Rio. We found the rooms and facilities very clean and the staff very friendly. Bang for your buck this a very nice place to stay if you want a more quiet hostel.

The place is ok, don´t get me wrong but they overcharge for what they deliver. Breakfast is just awful, and gets full so you might not find a place to have your meal. Private room is ok, but bed is not confortable and with no amenities on it.

For the $$$ that you paid, you get a lot. Location, quiet, close to restaurants, staff great (very nice) first time there and love it. Remember you are in a different country, YOU have to get used to it otherwise stay home.

The place is nice and very convenient. You are very close to many fantastic restaurants and also to several bus stops to the main attractions. However, every time we asked them how to go to some place they just told us to take a taxi or, even worse, tried to sell us a package that obviously didn't fit our planning.... More

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.

Staying in Leblon

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
