A great hostel for travellers who want to be close to the beach (2mins), secure at night and to be helped by delightful staff. The rooms are clean as are the bathrooms and for the price you won't find better. The bar is also very reasonable and the bar man is a laugh. Great stay many thanks!

Lemon spirit is only one block from the beach, a short walk to the supermarket and right around the corner from shops, bars and restaurants. The staff were cool and always helpful, I booked everything from hang gliding to favela tours with them. The rooms are decent sized and bathrooms were always spotless (and lots of them!) so no waiting.... More

I stayed here in April and it was a great hostel. The staff were excellent and the breakfast was delicious! It's in a good location, clean and tidy and the have good social events/nights. I met some really cool people there and if I were to go back to Rio, it would be my first choice hostel.

The best thing about Lemon Spirit is that is a really fun atmosphere, which is what I am looking for in a Hostel, especially if you are travelling by yourself! The Bar is great, the outdoor patio always had lots of people hanging out and the caipirinhas were yummy. Plus it is right down the street from the beach! The... More

A brilliant hostel in Ipanema which is an upmarket area. The dorms are great and spacious except for the 4 sleeper on the highest floor which is tiny and more expensive. There are many separate bathroom cubicles which are spotless and each have a toilet, shower and basin. The breakfast is good and the bar is cool and a great... More

It's quite a nice hostel, great breakfast and pretty close to the beach! They have a good staff always willing to help. Only con was the room that I stayed as it was in the ground floor next to the reception and common area, so you could hear all possible noises...

This is a hostel which can give an example to other hostels. It lies on a great location in Leblon near the beach. The hostel has nice dorms and a great common area. Despite the fact that there was no warm water when taking a shower the bathrooms where very clean at all times. I enjoyed my stay and would... More

This hostel is really great. It's just one block away from the 2 most beautiful beaches in Rio (Leblon and Ipanema). The rooms and showers are quite small but clean and organized. You can safely keep your belongings in lockers closed to the rooms and your bags under the beds. tip: bring your own lockers!

Really impressed with hostel. It had good atmosphere in the evening and very friendly staff. You can relax with a beer in the outside area. The rooms were small, but clean. I also arranged several tours and evening events through hostel which allowed me to meet other travellers. The location on Ipanema is great. I also felt very safe in... More
