I stayed here for five nights at the end of my trip to Rio in march. I had stayed at three other hostels in Rio in similar rooms (double ensuite with AC). Leblonspot was the most expensive and in the most upmarket area and I certainly expected it to be the best of the four. However, whilst it was more...

Just spent 5 nights at Leblon Spot Design Hostel and it was a great stay. It was clean and tidy and the staff was so friendly. They helped us with everything and we were greeted with a smile every time we came to the reception. Breakfast is very simple, not its nice that it's not crowded in the mornings. It...

My wife and I recently stayed here on our trip to Rio. We found the rooms and facilities very clean and the staff very friendly. Bang for your buck this a very nice place to stay if you want a more quiet hostel.

The place is ok, don´t get me wrong but they overcharge for what they deliver. Breakfast is just awful, and gets full so you might not find a place to have your meal. Private room is ok, but bed is not confortable and with no amenities on it.

For the $$$ that you paid, you get a lot. Location, quiet, close to restaurants, staff great (very nice) first time there and love it. Remember you are in a different country, YOU have to get used to it otherwise stay home.

The place is nice and very convenient. You are very close to many fantastic restaurants and also to several bus stops to the main attractions. However, every time we asked them how to go to some place they just told us to take a taxi or, even worse, tried to sell us a package that obviously didn't fit our planning....

The hostel is in a great location, a nice relatively safe and quiet area of Rio. The facilities are good enough though I would have preferred safer "feeling" lockers in a more discreet location. We had a double room which was not very comfortable and was in the building next door. Overall I felt we got value for money and...

Spent three nights in this Hostel. Nice place affordable for a first contact with Rio de Janeiro. The shower and the room was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
