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

So I booked five nights at this hostel based on stellar reviews on Tripadvisor. Cannot believe that these reviews are really true. This place is dirty. It is cheap. The dog here bites people. I had the worst night's sleep in twelve years of travelling - the dorms have no ventilation and there are also mosquitoes. It was BOILING. I... More

I had only one night at Limetime, but in the 24 hours I spent it was wonderful! The place is perfectly situated near Av Paulista on a quiet leafy road. I felt very safe walking around even after dark. The place has really cool graffiti all over the walls. It's simple, but has everything you need, including a kitchen for... More

I stayed at the Limetime hostel because someone had recommended it to me. The online reservation was very professional and they sent us an email to confirm our arrival, which I thought was great! I really liked the location (very central, close to Paulista Av.) and the fact that our room was quiet since it wasnt facing a street. The... More

We spent 4 nights at the Lime Time hostel, which made our visit to Sao Paulo a great stay. We love the place, it is in a safe neighborhood. Easy acces to everything. Nice rooms, and the facilities were kept very clean several times a day. Then there was of course the very nice staff who were always friendly, willing... More
