I loved this hostel. I stayed here for a whole week in January, which is summer season in Rio.. aka high season. The place was filled with incredible people, met some awesome friendly folks from all over the world. The staff was pretty good, some of them were kinda boring and standoffish but most of them esp, the ones in... More

The hostel is good located in a quiet are, 1 block further you have everything: bus-stop, supermarkets, restaurants, bakeries,etc. Friendly staff. For the price that you... 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

We were booked in for 3 nights here but after a couple of days we extended it for another 3. Great location, right next to the metro that takes you out to both copacobana and ipanema or centro in the other dire tion. Very tidy and the staff were very knowledgeable and super friendly. The free caipi and no wifi... 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
