Hostel was clean and close to the metro stop, although still didn't feel hugely safe walking back after a night out. The beds in our dorm were really squeaky and the dorm itself was hot and smelly and very noisy, being at the front close to the road. Staff weren't particularly friendly, preferring to watch the tv than interact with... More

Perfect location, friendly staff! We stayed there very short and there was nothing to complain about.The only problem was that we couldn't cancel one night as promised on the website so it shaded the experience in this place.

Hi. Thanks for your comments. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay here. As explained to you via email, we require a 24 hour cancellation notice, and you only told us to close to the arrival time. You booked the Private Room, and we only have one. As soon as you told us, we released it back for... More

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
