This place was ok, not great... just meh.
The decor is nice, the rooms are lovely and it's very clean. The staff are very helpful too, but it just didn't leave a very impression on me. Not much atmosphere.
The first night we were there it was deathly silent in the whole house and we (my wife and I) felt a little cautious even saying a word (it didn't help that the guy in the dorm with us was in bed... constantly... for 48 solid hours... in silence. Weird man.) The second night was more of a party night and the third night, moreso still.
It turns out there's a fair few people that actually live at Lima Limon, and so it kind of feels like you're staying at somebody's house: a friend of a friend, so you're not really comfortable inviting yourself to their party, you just kind of leave them to it.
That said though, I would stay there again, I'd just plan to spend more time away from the hostel next time.
