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.

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.

I've travelled in Hostels throughout the world and this is by far the best one I have come to stay in. This feels like a house, with a welcoming feel and comforting ambiance. It is impeccably clean. The breakfast is amazing. Homemade French toast, banana pancakes, fresh papaya etc. The best part of the hostel is the people (and the cat!), the staff are amazing from the receptionist to the bartender. There is so many great exchanges and wonderful tips and advice on exploring Rio.

The hostel was nice but the walls were pretty thin. Also it wasn't as close to the beach as we thought it was. They also had a very cute cat Leche =^.^=

Excellent hostel. Very clean and full of friendly helpful staff. Showers are hot and clean. Location is really good, right beside a metro so doesnt take long to get into the city. Ideal for nights out in Lapa and a great hostel to meet other like minded travellers

Such a fantastic hostel, possibly the best of my 3 months in South America! So close to metro meaning you're close toto everything. Great staff, great breakfast, great facilities. Perfect for solo travellers as it is super social. Definitely stay here!!

Gostei muito do atendimento, a Rafaela é muito atenciosa e me deu muitas dicas interessantes de passeios, locomoção e segurança. O clima do hostel é super agradável.

Our first hostel I'm South America and could hardly fault it. Staff were super welcoming, always helpful and gave us a great introduction to the city. Rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were always clean- bedding too. Hostel located near bus and metro stops meaning relatively simple to get to all areas of the city. Make sure to ask David for the Discovery Caiprinah (we think he's still discovering the perfect mix!)
