It had the most filthy bathroom I had ever seen. It was a battle to take a shower without stepping on dirt, it was disgusting. In fact, all of the hostel facilities were dirty, even the kitchen. The staff is amazing and really helpfull, but the facilities were terrible. In addition to all the filthy rooms, the bedroons were hot as hell and there was no ar conditioning. And they turned off internet wi-fi every day at 9 pm until 10 pm so we would "talk", even if there were 2 people there!


Sao Paolo or Rio de Janeiro, LimeTime is the best hostel ever! Go there, you wont regret it!


This was an ok hostel. Quiet and clean. However there really wasn't much socializing going on and it seemed that there were a lot of Brazilian travelers there who didn't seem to interested in speaking English. Staff was ok. They helped if you asked but They didn't go out of their way to help and seemed lazy. Beds were not very comfortable at all.


Além do overbooking e tive que ir para um quarto misto (tinha reservado um quarto feminino), por algum motivo que ainda não sei, a recepcionista da manhã , entrou no quarto umas 9h da manhã, abriu a minha cortina, olhou pra minha cara e saiu. Não entendi nada, e ainda levei um grande susto. Os lençóis estavam rasgados, a cortina da cama metade rasgada, não tinha lâmpada, e o armário para guardar minhas coisas era muito pequeno.


Achei ótimo. Funcionários muito prestativos e gentis, ambiente agradável, excelente localização. Recomendo que futuramente façam uma estadia com a opção de café da manhã, mas isso pode n ser necessário. Parabéns a equipe

Umas das coisa que mais aprecio num hostel é a qualidade da cama. Chegando lá não gostei dos quartos. Colchões velhos e todo deformado. Travesseiros com aparência de sujo e com certeza carregado de bactérias. Trabalho na área hospitalar e acho que a limpeza deve ser um item fundamental. Os guardas volumes são pequenos e não cabem voumes grandes. Emfim muito a melhorar. Não voltarei lá nunca mais.


They call themselves a party hostel, and you probably will need to be near passing out drunk to sleep well on the mattresses. Very thin and with a cover (to protect them from getting soiled by drunk guests?) Was mid-week low season when I was there, so I didn't see how it gets to judge. There was one very crude Australian there, who I believe also works there, which is why I left the lower staff rating. Otherwise, it's just an average hostel for SP. For only a bit more, much better exists

The hostel has an excellent location. The staff is really nice and friendly, and if you're in the mood for some good parties, they always find the good ones. Was definitely a fun stay,


Loved the localization and atmosphere . Stayed on spacious 8 bed mixed dorm . Excelent cost benefit rate . Only thing i wasn´t too comfortable with was the bathrooms, could use a bit more cleaning . I enjoyed my stay and recommend.


Já é a 3x que me hospedo lá e sinceramente dessa vez deixou muito a desejar! Os banheiros simplesmente imundos, às vezes não sujo mas fedendo muito, só vi uma vez sendo limpo a noite e ainda mais pelo menino da recepção, o que eu mais via trabalhar era o moreninho da recepção que ficava pela manhã! Depois dessa ultima estadia não me hospedo mais, só vem caindo desde a primeira vez que fui.


To book online is cheaper than in person. It is ridiculous. I had to ask the girl to wait a second and booked online and saved R$7.

And you are complaining?


Nice, cheap an clean hostel. Unfortunately there weren't so many people around when I was there, so the "party" in the bar did not really get going. Might want to check out the other hostel of the chain in Vila Madalena for that.


A fun hostel to stay at but not the most comfortable. The bunk beds are really short - it's awkward in the bottom bunk. Had to shower in the dark because the motion sensors don't work. You only get 4 minutes of water in the shower. When I was checking out in the morning, one girl was asleep on the sofa, she woke up and did half of my check out then went back to sleep without calling the member of staff who needed to give me my deposit.


Como sempre foi tudo ótimo no Lime Time. Tudo bem limpo e organizado, e a equipe é sempre muito receptiva. A VIBE é sempre muito boa! Sempre recomendo para quem é ou tem o espírito jovem.


The bathroom could be cleaner, but it is fine. Great place to stay! Nice staff


It's a good place, with good atmosphere. The staff is very nice. The location is great, close to the Paulista Avenue, to the subway, to the mall, supermarkets... However, the building doesn't feel very safe and the bathrooms should definetely be cleaned up more often.


Good value accommodation if you're looking for the basics in a good location. The bathrooms need to be cleaned more often and more thoroughly, but it wasn't too bad. The staff were great and made a lot of effort to get people socialising.


Awesome hostel,highly recommended


I loved the experience in this Hostel. Staff The staff are all polite speak very good English. They are polite and very collaborative. The time of free caipirinha is the time to meet new People. The location is wonderful. I will come back more often in this Hostel.
