After having a Feijoada Dinner Party anda Caipirinhas, the host took us in person to the beach to see the fireworks show. After that, we went to a very cool party. Great experience in Rio! the location is the best. right next to a subway station, easy anda safe to walk around in Rio.

The staff was pretty good, some of them were kinda boring and standoffish but most of them esp, the ones in... More

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
