“ Loved my stay at Lisetonga Hostel! The location right next to Copacabana was amazing, and the staff and atmosphere was incredible! Definitely not my last stay at Lisetonga! Great value at a low cost. ”
Thanks and hope to see you again !!

“ Terrible room, impossible to sleep after 6 am because of noise and unbearable heat. Very unsafe and noisy area, close to favela. Staff is friendly but sometimes not in their position to work. Not enough shower rooms for all the guests and certainly overpriced for the poor quality of its services. ”
Hi, thank you for staying with us. Your review is the worst we ever got and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us the way other travellers do. The street we are on has a police present 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we never had any safety issues. Yes sometimes Brazilians on the streets get overly happy and sometime tend to be loud as you will surely find out as your travel continues. We suggest you try to enjoy their happyness and make friends rather than request them to be silent. We indeed are friendly people and we wear "Rio Eu Amo Eu Cuido" T-shirts so that it is easy for you to find us when we are not at our position. Remember we also need to check the house, put toilet paper, check status of showers and bathrooms. As a clarification, we have 5 bathrooms and 6 showers for 26 guests to use. The double room you stayed in has pictures published on our website, on our facebook page and also here on hostelworld. We believe we are honest with our offer and information we make available. We are sorry you did not feel our prices were fair and we wish you the best as your travel continues.
