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!

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

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.

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
