    Raise your spawn a few units above the brush you want to spawn on.

    That way it works but...

    When i move that entity to air, i spawn on floor (why i don't spawn on air and fall down?).

    But when i put spawn entity to place where it should be (1 or x? pixel up from floor), i spawn down below it.

    Can you explain this please?

    Entity's axises does not exceed walls' axises

    The player is automatically teleported to the brush directly below the spawnpoint when he spawns.

    Also, the spawn entity actually extends just slightly lower than the visible bottom of the little green man. Nobody knows why they made it that way. Probably a mistake.

    if your default point entity is info_player_teamspawn, just placing a spawn point by clicking on a brush gives you enough distance for the spawn point to spawn on that area
