Lemon Spirit Hostel is placed in the area named Leblon, which is a great and safe area to stay in. When you step out on the street you can actually see the beautiful beach Leblon and right next to it you find Ipanema and Copacabana beach as well. Just across the street you can find restaurants with local food, salads,... More

A fantastic hostel situated two blocks from the beach in Leblon. Anything and everything you need is within a few blocks, plenty of eating and drinking options. And the staff here are amazing, they definitely go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! The rooms are very comfortable, and the bathrooms are fantastic. If you're... More

Lemon Spirit is a very well-run hostel, while still maintaining a casual, friendly vibe. They're connected with many local tour operators so everything from booking a football match at Maracana to navigating the Vigidal neighborhood to hike Dois Irmaoes is easy as ever. The staff clearly relish getting to know travelers, and will often stick around for a couple beers... More

The hostel is located in a very safe (and wealthy) neighbourhood in Leblon. The staff is very friendly and outgoing. Very clean and nice rooms and the atmosphere is awesome! Always people around to chat and hang out with and nice parties in the evening! The breakfast was awesome. Wi if worked as it should. I will definitely recommend this... More

Great hostel in the safe area of leblon. 3min to the beach, lot of restaurants nearby. Cool bar in the hostel and good choice if you want to get in contact with other backpackers. Of course everything clean. What else: free welcomr caipirinha, amazing barbecue on sunday (or monday), easy to book tours and activities in rio.

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

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
