Of all the LimeTimes, this might be my favourite. The staff is very helpful, willing to give you all the information you need about the city and its sightings, and also the nightlife. They are really fun, creating a welcoming vibe and helping the guests to socialize. The bar is really cheap, with a free caipirinha every night (2 hours... More

This hostel has a lot of potential to be a 4-5 star rating place, but it's facilities drag its quality down. What makes this hostel stand out is the particularly nice and friendly staff. They were all really cool and made my stay overall positive. However, the issue was that water did not properly work on the second floor, water... More

Cozy hostel, with nice atmosphere. It's close to the Subway Station and busy commercial sector. There are some places in the area for a beer and to play pool at night. It is a worth value, the breakfast could be better though.

This hostel is very close to the Botafogo Metro which we used multiple times each day. It is conveniently located in a quiet street and seemed to be pretty safe. However it has minimal signage, we had to go by the numbers in the street. We had a private double room and shared bathroom. Women's showers had good pressure. Men's... More

Fantastic! I loved staying there. I found new friends and they have free caipirinhas from 9 to 9.15pm. It was very nice to talk to new friends and to make new ones. The neighborhood is safety and you can find everything you want at the drugstores, supermarkets and shopping malls.

MICHELLE MADE THIS HOSTEL FUN AND THE BEST! Great service since day 1 from all people, and fantastic info for excursions to do in the city. Free Caipi's at 9:00 - 9:15 with the wifi switched off which forces everyone to be social! Nice chill place during the day, metro station nearby, great location, great people, great hostel!!!

Lifetime hostel is a really social hostel! Me and my boyfriend stayed here 2 nights when we first arrived in Rio and pleased we did as met loads of people. At 9pm they give you a free Caipirinha at the bar and turn off the wifi for an hour so everyone goes down stairs and meets each other. The hostel... More

I stayed in this hostel some nights during my visit in Rio de Janeiro. The hostel is awesome, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the prices are ok and the location in Bogafogo is perfect. Also for some reasons they spend a lot of free Caipirinhas :-D
