I stayed there for two nights, the staff is incredible they call you by your name and that makes you feel at home, they also explain you everything on your arrival and they are always ready to help. The bathrooms are always clean but the room where I stayed had this musty smell. Good but not great.

Amei! Excelente localização, a apenas 1 quadra da melhor praia do Rio. O bairro é impressionante, muito seguro, muitos bares e restaurantes, próximo a estação de metrô e alguns mercados, definitivamente o melhor! Realmente adorei toda a equipe (tão simpáticos) e atmosfera (hóspedes de todo o mundo). Café-da-manhã de cortesia é ok, mas seria perfeito se houvesse mais opções como...

I really had a good time there. The staff are so friendly and the atmosphere is amazing. The localization is Near the beach and it everything so clean in the rooms. You can store your bags below your bed. You can enjoy the Brazilian caipirinhas and after go to the party.

Excellent location with Leblon beach being only one block away. The hostel has a social atmosphere. Often guests would socialise in the evenings and go out together. The mix of guests is diverse with the average age between 26-32 and a diverse range of nationalities. Panda and his caipirinhas deserve a mention as well! He would provide free caipirinhas on...

The hostel is a great place to meet others, nice design and great part of town one block from the beach. The bar man Panda kept me entertained each night, has the coldest beers and best capiarinhas in Brazil!

Had a great stay at Lemon Spirit Hostel. The guys on the front desk, Gaspar & Thiago, were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We've been travelling all around Brasil for 2 weeks now and Panda the Bar Man really does do the best caipirinhas in all of Brasil! We met loads of cool people. The breakfast was...

You simply cannot beat the location, 2 minutes to Ipanema beach and a short walk to leblon shopping etc! Staff were really friendly, rooms were clean and secure. The one drawback was the atmosphere - not a great deal going on so if you're looking for a party head to lapa or somewhere similar! We enjoyed our stay there!

Lemon Spirit has a fantastic location in the safer neighbourhood of Leblon. The staff are extremely friendly and speak great english, especially Anita at reception and Panda at the Bar. The hostel is also very sociable but it is let down by the rooms themselves. The rooms have a somewhat distinctive smell, fairly uncomfortable beds and are noisy. They are...
