Hostel Lisetonga was a lovely place to stay; really clean, great service and really warm people. The hostel is decorated really nicely and has a very intimate and homely feel to it. The rooms and bathrooms were kept clean and the staff were always friendly and happy to help.

Very nice hostel, clean the staff is great and the location is unbeatable. I was very comfortable and never bothered. I like that the 4 person room has a balcony. Great outdoor spaces, the breakfast was very tasty! It is also very nicely decorated and very safe. Would recommend this hostel to anyone

Room Tip: The room with 4 beds has a nice balcony

The Hostel offers a nice social enviroment to travelers. You very quickly meet other travelers in the comfortabel open aerias of the hostel, and hook up for a day at the beach, or other great activitys in Rio. The Athmosphäre is very family like and the staff is very helpfull and nice.

I spent two weeks in this hostel and had really great time. Since the moment we arrived, we felt home. The building looks like a big house, very characteristic. The bar is an open space where you can enjoy cheap and lovely caipirinhas on the terrace. Overall, the hostel is clean, and when it’s not, that’s fault of uncivilized customers.
The staff is awesome! They are very helpful concerning ANY matter, very social, flexible and friendly. The location is also nice, situated in Leme, ten minutes walking from Copacabana beach. The area is very quite and felt safe all the time. I actually enjoyed the steep climb to reach the hostel, it’s a youth hostel right? Some daily exercise won’t do any harm. Besides, there are moto taxies available for 2,5 reais.
The only downsize in my opinion is the fact that it is not possible to wash the laundry at the hostel. So, if you are staying for a long time and you are a clean person, you should consider the extra cost of laundry service, which is pretty expensive and inefficient too (they ruined my skirt by blotting it with bleach).
Overall, I would reccommend this hostel 100%! If you are social, easy going, friendly and like to have good time this is the perfect place for spending your time in Rio.

Room Tip: Upper floor is better, less noise

This is probably my favourite hostel ever.

The staff were very friendly and created a great social aspect to the property. The rooms were spacious and clean, as were the kitchen and communal areas. The hostel is located up a steep hill but you can always pay the R$2.50 for the moto taxi guys to give you a lift up. Despite the hostel being on the hill to a favela I alwyas felt safe and there was a constant police presence at the bottom of the hill (as with many of Rio's pacified favelas).

The hostel does not serve food, but there is a supermarket nearby, as well as plenty of restaurants. The bar in the hostel is open in the evenings and I can attest to the previous reviewer's remark that Thiago makes the best Caipirinhas in all of Rio!!! The hostel is also very well located near Copacabana beach and nearby bus stops to the rest of the city.

To be honest, I struggle to fault this property and would 100% stay again and recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay.
