Lemon was a good hostel but it definitely could be better. Great location. One block away from Leblon beach, restaurants and shops. Definitely overpriced, but I guess all over Brazil's major cities are like that, impossible to go travel on a small budget. Main complain are the staff who don't look very friendly. It seems that they are doing a... More

Stayed 6 night at Lemon Spirt in Leblon. I choose this place because I wanted a vey safe and convenient beach location. It was exactly that and more. I was traveling solo and wanted to make some friends. My roomies were great and the employees were really cool especially if you took the time to get to know them. I... More

Lemon Spirit Hostel Leblon Rio De Janeiro Brazil............ Well I write this review after staying here 5 nights early September 2014. I booked the hostel via the Hostel World website after reading the many great reviews, whilst a little sceptical that most were really positive I have to say I agree with them. The welcome was great with loads of... More

Stayed there after the world cup and they still had not dropped there prices. Way too expensive and was very dissapointed. Felt like they tried to squeeze every penny out of me. On the other hand the cleaning staff where fantastic. They did a great job and where very friendly

In the nicest part of Rio, gated with a camera where the 24/7 front desk employee can see you and buzz you in. I wasn't allowed upstairs since I wasn't staying there, but the bathrooms downstairs were really clean. (You couldn't flush the toilet paper but that's the case in most places in Brazil.) Can't say enough about all the... More

This hostel is absolutely amazing - friendly, clean, good value and great location. The beach is only 3 minutes away and in my opinion is the best beach i saw in Rio. I was warned over and over to be safe in Rio and how dangerous it was but this area could not be safer. I felt fine to walk... More

I have been to the Lemon Spirit Hostel in 2011 and my experience with the hostel staff is amazing. I was travelling in Brazil and I had just come from Uberlandia (in the Estate of Minas Gerais) and I arrived at around 22 o'clock or 23 o'clock. I was tired and I went to sleep in one of the dorms.... More

The hostel is in 1 of the safest locations in Rio and I felt I could walk around the area at night by myself. The beach is 1 block away and there are many buses however it is sometimes not the most convenient location when visiting other parts of Rio e.g. Lapa The staff were friendly throughout my stay and...

Lemon Spirit is in a more than perfect location, one block from the beach with all upcoming ATMs, bars and malls, with buses to all the sights of the city with stops in a few steps away. The staff is very helpful, the cleanliness is excellent, the room has air conditioning, but the bed is noisy (single point to improve... More
