Property Information:

LimeTime is all about making you love Sao Paulo. We are the biggest fans of this city and we want you to feel the same way. Let us help you change your perception and enjoy the best of it with great tips for sightseeing during the day and awesome party advice for experiencing Sampa's nightlife. Located in a central and safe location, we're right in the middle of the action, close to the main streets and Metro Stations making it easy to go anywhere. Another good reason to book? Stay with us and get a Free Caipirinha every night. Curious? Go ahead and see why you should (or, maybe, should not) stay with us!

Look us up in Vila Madalena (SP) and Rio de Janeiro as well!

This is what one of our recent former guests said about us and we think she captured the idea pretty well:

'This is a party hostel the way it should be. Do not expect any art deco decor other than green and previous hostel guests graffiti, but expect a bar with free drinks from 9pm-9.15pm every night, cheap drinks after, and staff that take you out almost every night of the week. It's easy to meet people, good well equipped kitchen and a stable WIFI. 24/7 reception, lockers in the dorms and good security of the building. Location is great for exploring this concrete jungle that is SP. Staff can give you lots of good insider tips to not be overwhelmed.' - Anika - 22 - Amsterdam, NL

So, what do we have to offer you?

    Lime Time Hostel has a great location - we could get to Avenida Paulista and to Brigadeiro subway station after a five-minute-walk. There are lots of restaurants and food trucks around, banks and everything we needed. I didn't spend much time at the hostel, but the staff was just great: they helped me when I locked the private bedroom with the key inside and they even helped me with my make up for carnival. I didn't have breakfast at the hostel, so I can't say about it.
