First of all I know you get what you pay for and this place is cheap. So if the price is the most important thing to you then go for it. Also it’s in a great location and the staff we met (Catarina and Gaspa) are very well informed and incredibly helpful. However it’s tatty, not that clean and really could do with some work. The window in our room (room 5) was smashed which meant as soon as traffic started in the morning we were all woken up as it was really loud. The window being open also nullified the air con. If we were coming to Rio again I’d stay in Santa Teresa or somewhere else to be honest.
Great hostel in amazing place. For us the stay started from a really nice evening caiparinha, then continued with great parties and ended up on samba evening in the restaurat. It's extra close to beach, mountain of Dois Irmaos, and baisically everywhere in the city. The hostel staff is extra friendly and helpfull, and the restaurant downstairs is serving delicious food and drinks! The best of it all is the garden of the restaurant, where you can easily meet other guests of the hostel and spend nice time. Love you guys, hope to see ya soon!
I just had a fantastic time with my friends at Lemon Spirit Hostel. We had a few drinks and a couple of shared plates and everything was great. Also the staff was very friendly, which made our night even better!
it´s not what it seems, an open bar down stais with no common places. rooms are small, The lockers are totally unsafe, no breackfast included, dirty and noisy, the girl in the receptionhas to attend the both the Bar`s and Hostel`s clients at the same time. It´s to expensive, I DONT recomend this place at all
So this newly renovated hostel was just ok. The best thing I can say about it is it's location. Just one block from the beach and lots of shops and dining you can't ask for a better place to be. The metro is close and you can walk to the Botanical Garden or cocabana beach all under 30 minutes. The other positive was the front desk staff and servers. They were very helpful, funny,smiling, and could speak great English. Made the stay enjoyable. The reason for the lower score were the cleanliness was not the greatest, the bathroom s were old and falling a part and the downstairs bar wasn't as social as I would have hoped. They could have used a pool table or something. The cleaning staff were rude and slow. They also would move your stuff without telling you. All in all I would probably recommend it based on the location alone. If the other things are corrected I would never leave …
