Well, they give a true description of the hostel.:) It is mostly for young people that love fun and parties. But I, 39 year old woman, felt there comfortable. Positive: They offer breakfast that is not mentioned at all. It's simple but anyways it's much better than nothing. Kitchen facilities are fantastic.:) Atmosphere is also nice and staff is friendly. Negative: the bathroom could be cleaner.


A very nice place to stay, very nice people in a very good location.

Has to improve a lot! there was a problem with A/C in one of the bedrooms and they didnt move us to other one. We had to sleep in the recepctionist room and we were not refund on anything even being reveillon that was really expensive. Poor breakfast finish very early.Located close to botafogo metro station, you dont do anything in botafogo so you have to get the metro all the time. There wasnt any water in bathrooms on the second floor was everything dirty and in the first floor was just drops.


They say that limetime is the most social hostel, but it's not like that! And the staff (except for the cleaning ladies) do nothing to make u feel confortable... U have no control of the a.c. and they turn it off before u wake up, rio is a hot citie... Sooo that was not so nice! The hostel is really clean and close to everything!

It is social, but we can only go so far... Free caipis at night, no WiFi so people disconnect for an hour, but if you are on your private room, and you dont come to the social area, we cant bring the party to your room unless you invite us... AC is turned on and off anytime you request, you just have to talk to reception.
