My friend and I were staying in this hostel for carnival. We were sharing the room with 6 people more and the there were some days in which the bathroom was not very clean. The breakfast is not good at all, actually we were having breakfast outside most of the times. Every time you need the air-con you needed to go to the reception and ask for it. Sometimes we were really roasting inside the room and they sometimes were switching it off with no reason.
Love this place and all the staff. In a nice area of Rio, easy to get to everywhere. Rooms and communal areas are clean and there is a really friendly and sociable atmosphere. Am staying here two more times when transitting through Rio, would highly recommend!
Very friendly staff, good access to Metro and every direction. Near Botafogo Beach. Clean rooms + air conditioned.
The worst hostel I have ever stayed in. When I arrived I did the check in and payed the full amount of my stay. Afterwards I discovered there was no water in the hostel (not one single drop). The knew but the just didn't or so called "forgot" to tell me. They had a problem with the street and some works there. I was furious after a 25 hours bus drive, all sweaty and tired and not able to take a shower. When I showed that I was furious the just laughed it away. DON'T STAY THERE WORST
Just one of the best experiences I had in a hostel. The staff was super friendly, they even went out with us to one of the best parties in Rio. We had a complementary caipirinha, which as a nice touch. It is very, well located, easy to get around with public transportation. Botafogo is right between downtown and the parties in Lapa and the beaches of Zona Sul, with cool restaurants and parties around. You can have a real taste of what Rio is. Staying there made my experience unforttable!

really nice stay! i'd always recomend this hostel. gotta work on the free caipis though they were suuuuuper strong ;)
Excellent hostel. Rooms with nice beds, big lockers and aircon, perfect location (near everything form the beach to the Lapa parties), super clean, with great atmosphere and crowd. Best place in Rio, hands down! Ah, they have another one in São Paulo too. Just as great! :-)
Bebeto and his crew made my time in Rio perfect! He's a great party ambassador so if you looking to meet cool people from around the world and have the most fun in rio, stay at LimeTime... I also stayed in his hostel in Sao Paulo and it had the same vibe! :)
Excellent hostel! Great staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, they will even take you out and show you the best places to party in rio, location is great for everything you will want to do, fantastic party hostel, highly recommended!
