It's safe to transfer, but take a cab.

I'd certainly go for the Lemon, as Leblon is one of the best neighborhoods in Rio. The con of the area is that things are more expensive, but I think it's worth it! It also has easy transportation to major landmarks.

I agree with jgsodre: Lemon Spirit Hostel is the better choice. It gets wonderful reviews. And, yes, take a cab.
