First of all, there are two LimeTime hostels in Sao Paulo. The one is in Ave Paulista and the other in Madalena. We stayed at the one in Paulista one night and then the one in Madalena one night. When we arrived at the Airport (GRU) we got an email from LimeTime saying our hostel that we booked will be... More

Stayed here during the world cup. It's a good location, but the place is very rundown, dirty and the atmosphere nothing special - the 'bar' is just a garage, which was only opened up once in the 5 days we were there. The staff were more concerned with themselves than the guests, messing us around with checkin times (we were... More

We had a good experience in general. The only bad thing ( and very bad) was that the bathrooms were totally messed up ( flooded ) and the smell was unbearable. The staff didn't seem to mind much about it. We had to take showers in the other bathrooms and they were far away in the next building. The staff... More

Nice friendly hostel located in an ideal area of Sao Paulo. About 2 mins from Paulista Avenue and close to Metro. Extremely safe neighbourhood and security was faultless inside the hostel. Also liked that there was a power socket inside the lockers, very practical. Very friendly and helpful staff. The free drink every night was great. Made it so easy... More

All the reviews I read only mentioned the good location and the friendly staff, none of them really described the real experience at the hostel. 1) No option for breakfast. 2) No air conditioning in the room, only one ceiling fan for 8 beds. 3) Room I was staying in was next to lobby and by the main road so...

I visited Sao Paulo in October 2013. I chose this hostel based on reviews from another website. This is a great and friendly environment. It is definitely a hostel that has a family feel. As a solo travel, it was great to stay at a place that allowed me to connect with many interesting people from around the world. It... More

カーニバル滞在の為、約10日間ほど 利用させてもらいました。 駅からも近く、徒歩1分内に身の回り品が買えるスーパーもあり。(更に徒歩5分では、簡単な家電や日用・衣類品等も売っている量販店も!)周辺の道も明るく(オフィスワーカーが歩いています)立地は本当に便利で最高でした。 ホステルの外観やスタッフさん、利用客も皆さんとても良い雰囲気です! ただ・・・ 残念ながら、旅の後半。夜は快眠できませんし部屋に荷物も安心しておけませんでしたので、仕方なく当初の予定を変更し、宿をうつりました。 何故なら、知らない内に同伴者が沢山のBed bug(ダニ・ノミもいたかもしれませんが、症状からするとたぶんBed bugです)の被害にあっており、ちょうど宿泊して7日目から両手、両足、首、見てはいられないぐらい赤い発疹が出て、相当かゆくて辛そうでした。。。。 実は、こちらの口コミで”ダニがいる?”といった書き込みがあったので、 念の為、私は寝袋と日本から水で使えるダニアースを持参しました。2日目にダニアースを宿泊した部屋(プライベートルーム)でやってはみたものの、、、このような被害にあったので、きっと部屋で沢山見たものは、ダニではなくやはり4日~7日後ぐらいにブツブツが出る症状も一致していたので、Bed bugだったんだと思います。(ダニが全くいないとは言い切れませんが、、、) 私は初日から寝袋を持参し、嫌な予感がして用心していたので、帰国3日たった今でも被害にあった気配は出ておりませんが、 姉は相当大変な目にあいました。とてもリーズナブルな宿ですし、自身が選んで宿泊した場所なので中傷するつもりはありませんが、 これ以上、被害者が出て、せっかくの楽しい旅が台無しになるのが可愛そうなので、 真実を参考までに書き込みます。 This is where a good location very close to supermarkets, also from the station. Staff helpful, I just people guests also good. However, before the two weeks that you intend to stay initially passed, we no longer need out of here. Because, My sister that... More

I am so confused by the other reviews..we came here because of the high reviews and it was a disaster. First we arrived without a booking which for most hostels is not a big deal. We got off a 17 hour bus ride with little sleep and the guy said he would check if there is available room. One hour... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a party, LimeTime Hostel could be the place for you. Along with having a bar on the premises and no curfew, the hostel staff goes the extra mile by taking their guests out clubbing and even providing discount admissions. The hostel provides private rooms and dorms, with one dorm designed for women only. Bed linens are included in the price. Other amenities include a guest kitchen, free Internet access and a TV with DVDs in the reception area. Bathroom facilities are shared with one designated for women only. LimeTime is located two blocks from Avenida Paulista. This hostel is lively and fun but if you're not into the party scene, it might not be the place for you. ... more   less
