I don't know how to mention high and low points, because I've just seen high points. It's a really clean and organized place, everything is new, lot's of facilities, it's located just some steps of the subway station and the staffs are so helpful.


- you can give just a little bit better exchange rate, in hostel was 2.1, at the exchange office 2.45 :)

Tres bonne auberge. Personnel tres accueillant, transmettent une tonne d information sur la ville. Pieces communes bien amenagee et jolie. Tout proche d une station de metro ce qui est tres pratique.


We enjoyed our stay at discovery the staff were extremely helpful and facilities were clean and fun! Only downfall was the tiny shared bathroom for the private rooms which seemed to always be cold. Would recommend:)


I had an excellent experience at Discovery Hostel. The staff in particular were the stand out for me, they were all extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Taiane in particular was so good to me and really went above and beyond to ensure I had a great experience. I would recommend anyone visiting Rio to stay at Discovery, the location and hostel amenities were outstanding and I really believe the great staff separates this hostel from the others,
