This is a great Hostel. I had a great time here because it has a nice family feel…not only amongst the individuals I stayed with, but also with the staff. The area is also really safe and somewhat close to the party street – Rua Augusta. The only thing that I did not enjoy was my bed, which I felt was too small for me.
Great people, excelent place! If someday I have to return to SP I will stay there!

I had such a nice stay! The staff is very nice and helpful, the cafe (with free caipirinhas!!) is very cosy and a good place to meet the other guests. Wifi works, rooms are spacious, showers are not that hot... but overall i had a really good stay.
dubbed as the party hostel in Sao Paulo, its not. Bar doesn't open till 9pm, and not allowed to bring your own alcohol in. We shared one beer between 4 before 9pm and were told off. the hostel has atmosphere and the Anna, a staff member there is great!! Just thought the owner (i think it was) could relax or open the bar earlier. the rooms were fine, a curtain over the bottom bunk was good for a little extra privacy.
It was a good stay overall. Location is really good, easy to find by subway. Supermarket just feet away, a mall very close by, near Paulista avenue. I would stay again.
I was sad to leave! Intended to stay 3 days and ended up there for 9! Met some great people, Anna, Daniel, Daniel & the night guy (sorry I forgot your name!) were all awesome!! They always were up for a chat, soo friendly & even helped me when I had my wallet stolen and made me feel a lot better about everything!!!! Bed has a curtain & the kitchens great! Overall I LOVED the place & will be recommending to anyone who will listen!! Thanks soo much guys, really made São Paulo for me!!
I really loved the staff, specially the Ukrainian girl. Regards!

Positives: amazing staff, particularly one American girl who was really friendly and helpful. Everyone spoke great English which was a bonus for us. Kitchen is good, free caprihinas at 9pm. Great at organising nightclubs to go to, but hostel vibe is kind of dead. Negatives: bathrooms weren't very clean and lights didn't work. We met a girl who found bedbugs in her things while we were here too - don't know if it was true, but we changed hostels anyway just in case.
It´s a very good hostel. I love it. you will be surround by people with great humor and a great energy. all the hostel, including the bathroom, are very clean. has good localization, near to Av. Paulista and also to the Metro blue line. i´ll certainly stay there when came back in SP.

Hostel is in a good location, near the tube stations which make getting around sao Paulo easy. The staff were all really friendly and nice to chat too, dorm rooms and beds were really good. But this was by no means a party hostel as it says.
everything alright, nothing to complain about at all. but please....tell Gringo visitors can be hungry too :))))
Very nice hostel! It's located in a safe neighbourhood and close to public transportation. The staff was super friendly and helpful every time. Het common outdoor space/ bar is great to meet new people and off course the free caipirinha (+ many cheap ones after) makes it easier to get in the right mood to go party afterwards. The staff even joined us to go out, what was great! We really enjoined staying here!
Loved the clean private room, showers were great, guy at front desk was helpful with a great map and it was just around the corner from Paulista Avenue. Would recommend LimeTIme!
As my introduction to São Paulo I was a little disappointed with the hostel vibe. It read up to be a big party hostel when hardly anyone ever came down to drink at the bar or socialise other than waiting to charge phones etc in the kitchen. Some staff were awesome and very helpful with what to go see and directions. I would come again :)
Ok hostel, but wouldn't rave about it, clean, quiet, but the staff think they are really cool ! The lack of breakfast is annoying and the bar isn't open late.
I didnt like there. They have a rule very hostile. Ask for cash collateral to secure the sheets. At the reception they ask you to read the rules, that's the way it is written makes it houses at least embarrassed. In addition to this being the first hostel I had problems of "losing" objects within it. The night receptionist is super cool, receptive, left What did was stay there less tense. But honestly, would not recommend. The site is very well located, but not recommend.
Great location, close to a mall and subway. everything is walking distance. very helpful staff. would come back again.
Was only due to stay two nights but stayed an extra night mainly because of the atmosphere in the hostel. The staff are excellent and the free Capirinha at night is a great way to meet others. There are also good promotions for bars and clubs in the city. Location is good near the metro and walking distance from the bars and clubs If I was going back to Sao Paulo I´d stay there again.
The kitchen is a great facility and happy hour Caiprinhas are fab. Good computers and good bunk beds with lights on each bunk. When I was there the hostel was a bit quiet even though it was a Saturday night, but I did travel in low season. The location is really nice, really safe area and close to lots of the attractions via metro or bus.
Great location and facilities. Staff is always helpful and chatty. It is low season now so not enough people for a good atmosphere but I'm sure during high season it is awesome. Kitchen and bathrooms always clean so far.
