I was suprised and borderline hurt by the comments....Leblon Spot is my favorite place in Cidade Maravilha. In fact, I lived there on and off for a few months. Its true, that there are always drawbacks no matter where you stay, but over all its a great place. First and foremost, the location is unbeatable. Anyone who has been in... More

Leblon is fabulous - this hostel is in a great location near the best restaurants. We stayed in Annex 1 and it was fine, clean, basic, comfortable room. We stayed one night in the dorm also - it was hot. Staff very helpful and the breakfast was good.

We spent 4 nights here to go to a wedding and sightseeing before travelling around the country. Rio is seriously overpriced, so hostels cost what you would pay for a hotel. Despite that, this is a decent choice. Not a typical 'hostel'. Clean and light, nicely designed. We staying in a private double with bathroom - which is literally inside... More

It's a really good hostel if you are travelling with friends, the amenities are excellent, everything is new, but there are not a lot of people trying to make friendship, or going out, so if you go by yourself, as I did, you may not find company to go out. Oh another thing, the neighbourhood is amazing!!! close to everything... More

I stayed at Leblon Spot in July 2011. It was a great experience! Check in was easy and all of the staff spoke English. For the first few nights I was in one of the big rooms, with 12 beds.
