O visual do hostel é bem bacana, mas peca no quesito limpeza. Um local com tantas pessoas tem de ser limpo constantemente. O Discovery Hostel é ideal para baladeiros, principalmente os que sejam fluentes em inglês, já que estrangeiros são o público alvo do local. Os atendentes são muito prestativos, e para o público estrangeiro o forte é que todos são fluentes em inglês e espanhol. E o café da manhã é bom para um hostel. Os proprietário são simpáticos e estão abertos a críticas e sugestões.

Very cozy environment especially to meet other travellers with superb staff (even went out with us on a few occasions). It's also very convenient to take the metro from there (100m at most) and a close walk to Lapa/Santa Teresa. The breakfast was also excellent (french toast, anyone?). All in all, an excellent hostel!


The hostel was awesome, one of the best free breakfasts available. Also the employees were super nice and helpful and the hostel atmosphere was really nice. It's also conveniently close to the metro station, beach and Lapa neighborhood. The place is a good mix of social hostel without being too crazy of a party place. I would definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for a good place in Rio!


Nice place with friendly atmosphere. All the staff members do their best to make people feel at home. Can't say I felt really comfortable in my bed because it was literally a matress on the floor. Can't say security is perfect. But all the rest was pretty awesome! What makes a hostel a great place to stay? Atmosphere. This place definitely has it. Great place to meet people! Can definitely recommend it and would love to come back one day.


Une superbe auberge de jeunesse, la localisation est très centrale proche des métro/bus/accès aéroports et bien situé pour desservir tous les sites touristiques en aller/retour dans la journée, host aux petits soins qui partagent conseils et bons plans, ambiance très jeune et conviviale, style et déco très soigné. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la cuisine à disposition, tout est minutieusement bien organisé (espace réservé pour ranger ses provisions, condiments à dispo). Bon rapport qualité prix.


Top hostal, top location, top staff! Tiny showers are the only possible drawback.


Really nice hostel and great value for money. My only comment is that one of the guys in the reception seemed slightly annoyed when I asked something (mostly average stuff such as tours, directions ext) and I noticed that he acted the same way towards other guest. The rest of the staff were great though, and I would def recommend this hostel !!


L.O.V.E.D it, this was by far the best hostel I've ever been to! What a gorgeous old merchants' town house - the high ceilings, the beautiful courtyard and the comfy common room. You guys made my stay in Rio epic!! Thank you
