Really nice place, great staff, next to metro station gloria, ten minutes walking to lapa and a supermarket nearby! We would really recommend this hostel!

Very much enjoyed my stay! The staff is amazing, it has a great atmosphere with lots of common space to hang out, the location is ideal-- next to nightlife, yet still a quiet place to return to. I felt spoiled because the beds are so comfy. Stay here if you want to get the most out of Rio!

O hostel é simples, mas com localização e preço muito bons. A internet não funciona bem, principalmente no segundo andar. Foram várias as vezes que a internet simplesmente não funcionava.

Es un excelente hostel. Uno de los mejores en los que me he alojado. Me gustaría que la tercera. Cama de los camarotes tuviese una baranda, para no tener miedo a caer y que el desayuno se sirviera de mas temprano. Pase el año nuevo en río Con mis amigas y claramente discovery hostel fue la mejor opción!!!!

Discovery is a very well organized hostel where it was very great to stay for 5 days. The staff is lovely, the breakfast too, I will recommend it for everyone who want a nice and friendly stay in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro!

Very, very friendly staff, cozy common areas, super-fast wifi and clean facilities. The location is great for partying (Lapa) and getting to the beaches is reasonably easy by subway. Music and people were rather loud until midnight usually - so even in a private room early nights weren't really an option. Just for consideration if you wanna sleep - bring earplugs.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. This was my 3rd stay at Discovery. It's my home away from home now. Clean and comfortable. Great part of Rio. Close to Lapa and Santa Theresa. 50m from the Metro which makes getting to Copa and Ipanema a cinch. The staff have always bent over backwards to make my stay in Rio amazing. Helping with anything from transfers, tips on where to go and also a shoulder to cry on and spare bits and pieces when the airline lost my luggage.

A lot of thought has gone into this amazing place and the staff really made it, especially the super cool Ozzy girl at reception who was really helpful with everything.

Best place in Rio, absolutely nice and appearently outgoing staff! People love to show you around the city, help you with everything and make you feel at home, literally. Healthy breakfast, fresh cake every morning, loads of details to find and like. What can I say, discover it yourself, a 100 points for this!

Das Hostel ist sehr süß und stylish eingerichtet und man fühlt sich sofort wie zu hause. Die Atmosphäre zwischen Travelern und Hostel-Mitarbeitern ist super. Die zimmer dür 6 leute sind leider viel zu klein, wer außerdem das oberster der 3-stöckigen Stockbetten erwischt hat verloren.. Es gibt insgesamt leider zu wenig Bäder, nur einesauf dem Stockwerk mit 2 6erZimmern. Das Frühstück ist großartig, die meisten Mitarbeiter,bis auf eine Österreicherin,sind extrem freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Super gorgeous hostel with great staff and atmosphere. Was in a 6 bed female dorm with ensuite and it was perfect - although top bunk not great for anyone with vertigo or if you head out for to many drinks! Fab spot and most likely will head back there again. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay there. Staff was awesome: friendly, helpful and always available when needed! The rooms are clean and have triple bunk-beds, so be sure not to be suffering from vertigo when chosing the topmost bed ;-)

Very good hostel with a well run and well organised set-up. Breakfast was very varied and enjoyable. The communal area was great for meeting people and the wifi was generally pretty good. Located next to a subway meant the whole city was accesible.
