The hostel is well located, in the best area of Rio. The common area is really clean and well decorated, but not so warm and welcoming as most hostels. Don't expect a young atmosphere or a place to socialize with backpackers from all over the world. Although they have good rooms and average bathroom, the price is really expensive and...

The hostel is really nice and very clean. It's in a safe location in Leblon near restaurants, the beach is a five minute walk. Great breakfast. Calm and relaxed atmosphere. The staff was not very friendly but they're very efficient. If I ever went back to Rio and needed a place, I would go back to Leblon Spot Design.

I was in a shared 4-bed dorm for two and a half weeks during the World Cup, and I was very happy with my stay. The bedrooms were basic but clean and the bathroom was exceptionally clean despite being shared by a large number of people. The atmosphere was a lot more calm and relaxed than in most hostels, which...

Had a good stay. Staff was nice, location is very good and safe. Some downsides: only one key and light for the dorm is very annoying. Not enough plugs. Bathroom is very small but clean. Breakfast ok. Best thing is the common tvroom to meet other guests.

Several options of restaurants and night life in the surroundings, and also a fare variety of stores. Easy access to buses and the subway. A great stay for guests that look for a quiet and...

Nice clean peaceful hostel at the far end of ipenema beach. Great free breakfasts and only 10 min walk from the beach. This is a quiet hostel so if you want to party, prob best choosing a different hostel, but if you want a clean, friendly hostel near the beach. If recommend this one.

This hostel is cozy and well-designed, made for young travelers looking for comfort at reasonable prices. There are also private rooms w/ bathrooms! Great location, street full of restaurants and bars ( a bit noisy during the night) couple of blocks from the beach and Ipanema. Breakfast is simple but good! The only thing I did not appreciate is the...

Hostels are, naturally, places with less confort, but this hostel intends to be part of a design network, so it's to be expected a little more attention to details and general instalations. Outside of the common area, which is very good and "design" style, the rest is very poor, including small beds, few showers and toilet seats for the amount...
