I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone. I stayed here for over a month intermittently and really had a wicked time. The 5 staff members - Gaspar (sexy Zebra), Rodrigo, Lucas, Nat and Bia made my stay here really special, they are wicked people !!! As a lone traveller, I never felt lonely once ! I also got well...

Just spent a week in Lemon Spirit over the Carnival celebrations, I cannot compliment the staff here enough. Yes, it was carnival, so I guess we were always going to enjoy this week, but the staff genuinely made it for me. They were welcoming from the 1st second and always had time for questions and happy to give advice. Not... More

A little late with my review. Myself, my sister and a friend stayed here last February for the Rio Carnival. Upon arrival I was greeted by a lovely lady who checked me in. Rooms are basic but very clean and has functioning air conditioning. Each bed has its own drawer to lock your personal items in. Plenty of communal showers/toilets... More

The hostel is situated in a safe neighbourhood very close to Leblon beach and restaurants. Lots of bathrooms/showers available to use. Staff constantly keeping the washrooms clean. My only complaint the air conditioner in our room leaked and did not work for 3 nights made it very challenging to sleep despite reporting the status daily it did get fixed the... More

The hostel is located in a fairly safe neighbourhood one block from the beach, which is great! Unfortunately the dorms are small and the air conditioner leaked all over my husbands bed during the night. In the morning when we reported it, the staff simply changed our room - no apology or compensation for a soaking wet bed all night.... More

This hostel is situated one block away from leblon beach and you can get a direct bus from the airport here -perfect location! The hostel was really clean and there was staff constantly cleaning all day. The only negative thing I can say about this hostel is that the air condition in the rooms wasnt put on until 10pm but...

Loved my stay at this hostel, great nights out and great staff. I also left my phone behind at the hostel and they went above and beyond to get the phone posted back to UK. Would recommend this hostel to anyone you will have a great time and stay.

We stayed at the dorm, 6 of us. The moment we came in, the welcome was quite good. Of course trying to sell trips and parties were too much in the face and was a disappointment. You felt like they are trying to make more money and will immediately see a lack in their response once you show disinterest. When... More

We loved our stay at the Lemon Spirit Hostel! The location is absolutely amazing, it's one block from the beach, and a five minute walk to the lagoon. The Leblon area also has many bars nearby and it's very safe. The common area is very nice, providing a great place to meet other travelers. The facilities are overall very good,... More

The location of this hostel is great, one block from Leblon beach. Hostel is very very clean and it's set up and garden is ideal for meeting other travellers. Quite expensive and the breakfast could be imporoved. Good activities offered by the hostal!
