I'd like to preface this review by saying that I only spent one night at LimeTime, so I did not get to experience the organized activities/happy hour that seem to make this hostel so popular. This review is based purely on my experience staying in one of their twin shared private rooms, which included a private bathroom. Having spent 300+... More

Great hostel and location, made my stay in Rio worth while. Staff very helpful, providing information made on request as well as easy going. Very relaxed place and more importantly a great place to socialise and meet people (free drink also included). Highly recommend his place, for both service and location, thanks Jack B

We had a great time at Limetime. Shout out to Cloud, Guy, and Pierce in particular for being really friendly and helpful. This is definitely a party hostel--the staff take the guests out every single night, which isn't really our speed but would be awesome if you're into it. Thanks, everyone!

Very Well located, in Botafogo close to the metro station. Everything is clean and new, from the kitchen to the bathroom. The staff is very friendly and there are free Caïpirina every night. Just the breakfast is first come, first served... It is definitly a good place to stay in Rio.

Stayed in LimeTime for 2 nights. It has a very relaxing atmosphere and a great location in Botafogo. However, they do not offer much with regard to nightlife. The free caipirinhas were really great too!

This Hostel offers both a partying and a relaxing atmosphere for those who seeks either one. The staff is awesome and are always ready to offer any help. The free caipirinha within social time is a splendid idea and if the ice between people is too thick there is always the Mario Kart tournament to break it up! The location... More

I really like the hostel because the people are nice and you really feel comfortable. It has a good distance to beach and nightlife. The rooms are really clean and the entertainment was also a bonus. (Wii, Music, Movies) The breakfast is almost not existing and in my opinion the food ist not so good tasting. You get cornflake (more... More
