We visited lime time for our stay in Rio. The place is clean, has a kitchen you can use, and organises regular events. Every night you get free cocktails too - a classic Rio Caiprinha! It's not the biggest of hostels but had a good vibe. Stayed in another hostel in Rio in copacabana but preferred this one. Pretty safe...

Great location, facilities, environment and staff. Felt really comfortable chilling with other guests at the reception/bar, and drinking caipirinha. Very good to find company for partying too. Staff just wants us to have fun.

When your top priority in a hostel is looking to meet new people and have a good time, look no further than LimeTime, it's great. But make no mistake, everything else about this hostel is quite average.

Good vibes and very social. Great location and helpful staff - they show you the local places in Rio. It's right by a supermarket and there is a kitchen so for the budget traveller, you can cook all your own meals easily. Wifi is not in all the rooms and the beds are not that comfortable. But you can easily...

I stayed at LimeTime for only 4 days and I have never become so attached to a city or a hostel in such a short amount of time! ALL the staff went out of their way from the beginning to make me feel at home and included. They are all a group of young, vibrant and open minded travellers, who...

Good location, good rooms (Air con is always a bonus), friendly staff, multiple languages spoken, good kitchen facilities and the meals they offered every evening were delicious and great value. The timer on the hot water for the showers would be my only complaint if I had to make one, but overall a great stay :)
