The rooms are spacious, very ventilated (+ air conditioning) and with great natural light from their huge windows and doors. Cleaning is also good, each bed has individual electrical socket and light and lockers in the room. I loved staying there both when I was working (and needed to rest, do my stuff, wake early and/or arrive late) and when I wanted to have fun and chill! The common areas are cozy and spacious, you can cook. It’s very close to a subway station and buses it has a great cost-benefit.

Perfection! Felt like home as soon as I walked in, super friendly and knowledgable staff, great cosy common areas to meet people, lots of activities on offer (free walking tour with David was a great intro to the city), dorms well designed with extra comfy beds and beautiful bathrooms, perfect location near shops metro and Lapa nightlife. No keys - just a welcome from staff every time you come in. Every detail has been thought about. Oh and the breakfast is fantastic! I wish all hostels were the like this 1

Great atmosphere and awesome staff. Very close to Gloria metro station giving easy access to other places in the city. Close enough to walk to Lapa area for the stairs and a night out. Staff were great on check-in, explaining where to go, what to do, how to get to all the points of interest in the city and where to avoid. Never had any problems in the area around the local area.

The LimeTime Hostel I stayed at in Rio is a place I highly recommend & will return to again. In fact, I stayed here my first 4 nights, another place a few days & then came back for 3 nights because I love the place! Its in a very convenient location in Botafogo (safe middle class kind of area with tons of restaurants, a little nightlife, near the Metro & quick walk to the beach). The staff were always smiling, friendly, helpful & mostly all cute ladies! The dudes were cool too. I'll be back! :-)
