In Sao Paulo location is everything, and LimeTime Paulista is the perfect spot for gaining access to any area. Primary issue areas are sanitation, and (because I had a private double) no outlets for charging which would accomodate a modern adapter. The mold and shower issues remain a problem. However, Uber-friendly and helpful bartender provided valuable info about all the... More

Thanks for your comments. This is the first time someone complain about power plugs in the private room. There are several under the desk. BUT... You made me realize it's UNDER the desk... We are gonna move those plugs up so people see it. I hope that helps. Adrian says hi! More

I stayed here for three nights with a group of two other boys, When we first arrived the staff were not exactly warming to the fact that we where there. The 8 bed rooms are okay and spacious. The bathrooms are lacking in basic up-keeping, they were at times dirty and there was one shower that had no hot water.... More

I spent only one night. Located in a safe area. You can find a metro station near the hostel. Really good place. Planned activities for every day of the week. You can cook there and save money and time.

I highly recommend this hostel to anyone that wishes a very honest place to stay in one of the greatest place in Sao Paulo, or even Brazil. I've stayed in LimeTime Hostel a couple of times already, always being a great pleasure for me. The crew is fantastic and the people that stays there is very nice. I have nothing... More

It was my first experience in a hostel and my grade is 3. Positive points: safe area, good assisted and a lot of transportation options. Negative points: trash is always full (in the room and in the bathroom), mattress very bad and one bathroom was spoiled.

Stayed 1 night in March. The area is very safe, close to Paulista ave, walking distance to MASP, two metros. The facilities were nice: chargers located within the lockers, soap dispensers that worked, automatic sinks, usable kitchen area, computer, and the door to the female dorm locked automatically (unlike other hostels where the door stays unlocked and just about anyone...

Great location with bus stops, grocery store, metro and atm nearby. Staff were friendly. Great party atmosphere, very social hostel. Great caipirinhias Too few bathrooms though, but they were kept clean. Security was good. Not a bad way to start a south American adventure

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
