Great hostel a couple blocks from the beach. It was quiet when I stayed here, but even so I met lots of people and had a good time. The rooms need updating and they aren't the most comfortable beds, but everything else makes up for it. Hot showers and clean bathrooms. Breakfast was good. The staff all speak English and... More

Stayed here with a friend in a 4-bed mixed dorm. Our room was actually the top room, so a few stairs to climb. It was small, but comfortable. There is a storage area under the beds (that fit my suitcase), plus lockers on each floor. The bathrooms are on the floor below, with stalls for shower & toilet. Plus sinks.... More

First off, I want to say this hostel is worth every.single.dollar!!! This is probably top 3 hostels on the planet for me, because it was so well-rounded and really attracts the best crowd. With that being said, keep in mind Rio is not a cheap city in the first place. My 6-female dorm was about $28USD per night. Super clean,... More

I stayed in this Hostel for 2 weeks close to the period of carnival and had an enjoyable stay! The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean, with plenty of space to lock your stuff. There is a nice outdoor area and bar for socializing and breakfast was pretty good. The hostel is very close to Leblon and Ipananema beach as well... More

This was my first experience in a hostel, I am typically taking international family vacations and was not sure what to expect. This hostel exceeded my expectations and preconceptions of what hostels are. They booked transportation from the airport, tours to enjoy the area for whatever you enjoy, and the friendly staff always had great recommendations for any questions. Do... More

I stayed at the Lemon Spirit just after carnival this year and think it's a solid hostel choice for solo visitors to Rio. The first point I need to make clear, I booked this hostel on the misconception that it was in fact a Lemon Party hostel. Despite the initial confusion when I asked about this when checking in, the... More

Lemon spirit was conveniently located one block away from the beach and near heaps of restaurants and bars. Extremely safe Leblon neighborhood. The common areas also had a great vibe,making it easy to meet other travelers. The only cons were that the 4 bed dorm was tiny and it was hard to sleep without being woken up at night because...

Staying in Leblon

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
