I've just been on a 3 month trip in South America and this is honestly the best hostel I stayed in the whole time! Amazing atmosphere (great caiprinhas at the bar), incredibly helpful staff (including in a fairly horrible money situation my friend had), great clean rooms & bathrooms and a lovely sociable communal area. These guys do everything a good hostel should do, stay here.
Lo mejor es la atmosfera, las personas que trabajan ahí hacen que tu estadía sea la mejor, siempre dispuestos a ayudar y son simpaticos.

The staff was awesome and brought the guests to cooland local places almost every night. And they also caipirinha time every day where they turn off the wifi which was contributing a lot to make the hostel social!
I had a really good experience at Lime Time. The staff were lovely and really helpful with information about the area, attractions and evening activities, they also made great Caipirinha's. The atmosphere was really inclusive and chilled, but livened up in the evenings, with people usually all going out together from the hostel. The rooms were clean and safe with key locks (some also had balconies). The showers were regularly cleaned and warm. The hostel is in a prime location, with the beaches in walking distance and a supermarket, good places to eat, the metro and bus stops literally at the end of the street. The hostel also has CCT inside and out so you always feel safe. I would definitely return.

The stuffs, especially Fei An, are very friendly and helpful. I feel like home. I love this place and I feel save to walk around. The local people who stay in this area are very friendly and helpful too. So make this as your first choice and you will see another side of Rio De Jeneiro.
The hostel is located in one of the favela's of Rio. The 4 hosts of the hostel were all very friendly and willing to help me with whatever question I had. While staying at their hostel I felt part of the community! Several workshops - such as a workshop to make wallets from waste - are organized for the residents of Barracco and the habitants of the favela. I even got offered to give an English course to the children of the neighborhood. This was really one of the most interesting places I visited on my trip!

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Always very clean and the best breakfast I've ever had!
Everything! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, the hosts were very friendly and very helpful in all aspects of our stay, we had a twin room, with shared bathroom facilities, all were spotlessly clean for the entire duration of our stay. It certainly made our stay in Rio de Janeiro a very enjoyable one, already planning a return visit at some point in the future

I was welcomed with fresh coffee, fresh bread and fruits, even though I got there early. The owner is helpful and friendly, and thankfully speaks some English (unfortunately my Portuguese is pretty poor). I stayed in the private double room downstairs - it was charming, comfortable and convenient. The location is great, down a side street away from traffic. The area, Urca, is not far from Corcovado or Copacabana, but is much more relaxed and quiet, but with decent, unpretentious bars and restaurants, and even a little beach with great views.
Ganesha is a small bed and breakfast that makes you feel home. The hostess is very kind and helpful on every aspect regarding the city and how to get around. Is a great place to enjoy Rio and move easily around the city. Is located in a quiet neighborhood with good access by bus.

Everything was good. Very nice people working there. Near the Botafogo metro station, only one stop from Copacabana beach. Tudo bom. Muito bom pessoas.

Vanessa and Tito made our stay so comfortable and were on hand at all times to give us great advice about things to do. All the other positive reviews are definitely true! The room had everything we needed and was cleaned daily. Vidigal is an amazing place and it was great to stay somewhere so unique so 100% for location but as another user said its not right in the middle of town. Saying that, it's easy enough to travel back and forth each day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here- if we had our stay over again we definitely would have done everything exactly the same. Hiking up Dois Irmaos right behind the favela was also a highlight-definitely recommend that. Again as another user said we felt really safe at all times walking around Vidigal and everyone was really friendly.
It does everything it says on the tin. Vanessa and Tito are awesome and will do everything they can to make your visit to Rio a great one, giving lots of advice usually over a beer. The life and character of the Favela IS the life and character of Rio. These guys tell you that they are high in the Favela with a great view so if you want that then the location is great, no surprises.

I have stayed here before and I have always wanted to come back as the everything about this place is great. It's friendly, relaxing, great views and the staff are great. We stayed in the best room - it may be the priciest but it's well worth it. You get your own balcony and bathroom both of which have the most stunning views of Rio de Janiero. I love it here!
Amazing view, great breakfast, very clean and wonderful staff. This is the best hostel I've seen yet in South America!

Fatima, daughter Julia and housekeeper were all very friendly and helpful. Room clean, beautifully decorated apartment, given own space to come and go as pleased. Very safe, fantastic location. Felt very at home here. Stayed with partner twice and alone here once. Will be returning again if ever in rio. Definitely recommend.
Fátima es lo más! Si van a Río deberían alojarse en lo de Fátima. Su casa está super bien ubicada, en el Barrio Leblon, uno de los más lindos. Las habitaciones son muy lindas y limpias, al igual que los lugares comunes de la casa. Fátima es muy agradable y te ayuda un montón con el viaje, dándote todos los detalles que necesitas para tu estadía. No sólo lo recomiendo, sino que si vuelvo a Río no dudaría en parar allí!
