One of the best hostels I ever stayed in. They though about every detail and that's what makes a huge difference. The place is clean, sheets come in a sealed plastic. The bunk beds are attached to the wall and beds have quite a space between them. Each bed has a small shelf on the side, with a plug and a lamp. Great showers, many bathrooms, comfortable lounge. Great location, close to the subway and right next door to atms, pharmacies, bars and markets. Staff is nice, friendly and helpful.

What an amazing hostel, one of the best I've stayed in from the moment you walk in you feel rite at home. Great place to meet people and what an amazing breakfast. Location is good, Metro only meters away. You won't regret staying at this place 😃

Our party loved staying with you. It was the best decision we could have ever made in traveling to Rio. Thank you for an amazing stay. 2 girls 1 guy stayed in a 6p mixed dorm 3 night. Check in was simply and the overview of the city Zion gave was extremely helpful in planning the rest of the trip. I felt safe in the hostel having to be buzzed in by staff and very quick walk to the Gloria Metro was a true game changer. Thank you again!

The staff was great, the house is big and very comfortable, nice breakfast, bed was comfortable, and clean bathroom. The guests were very excited and partying. I was there for a congress, but i could sleep early with no problem.

Location, Location, Location! There are 2 things you must recognize at Discovery Hostel: Great Location and Staff Support. The first one is due the proximity with the metro station and the second one is just because they are great and very supportive. I will always recommend Discovery Hostel as a place to be in Rio.

Short but sweet stay!! A really impressive hostel in a fantastic location! right next to Gloria Metro so the whole city very accessible, also by bus. The place is immaculate, and very well decorated. The kitchen area is the best you will probably come across in a hostel! amazing! good breakfast, really friendly and informative staff. only negative is that for the price, I feel towels should be included.

Arguably one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Brilliant atmosphere. The staff are very caring and get to know everyone in the hostel. Just like the other reviews mention Discovery has a very personal feel to it, everyone feels like family after a couple of nights. The owners are very nice and are always checking to make sure your stay is comfortable. There is a great party atmosphere in the hostel but the staff are careful there is no noise after 11pm so that others can sleep.

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned, and the breakfast is delicious. The common areas are comfortable and great for socializing and the bar offers cheap and delicious caipirinhas. The location is ideal: one minute from the metro and a short five minute walk to all the nightlife in Lapa. Most importantly, the staff and other travelers create an atmosphere that is fun and friendly.

Really great hostel. The owners are young and terrific. The staff is the same. Small private hostel with a great atmosphere and facilities. Good breakfast, good wifi. Easy metro ride to the beaches, and a quick walk to party in Lapa.

With loads of backpacking experience I have to say this Hostel is actually one of the best I have EVER been to. Very good vibes & atmosphere, not too big (around 30 beds), very central location (walking distance to Lapa / Centre 10-15 min), excellent cocktails (!!!) and good tours being offered! Stayed there for 3 weeks instead of 5 planned days... Absolute recommendable this place! Thanks to Enrique and Zion!

Fantastic hostel. Great atmosphere (met a bunch of people), very helpful and friendly staff, lots of suggestions on things to do, beautiful building, all the services you could ask for, reasonably priced, and one of the best breakfasts you'll find at any hostel. My only challenge was that I was on the third-level bunk, which made it a bit difficult to keep my stuff organized. Otherwise, they deserve their reputation as one of the best hostels in Latin America.
