It was generally a good hostel but just a couple of problems - no one told us that there was no food served at weekends so we waited for dinner and breakfast wasted a lot of time waiting before giving up, in fact the guy working there didn't even know. Even during the week the chef seemed to pick and choose when she cooked dinner. It makes having to pay ($1) to use the kitchen is a bit of a joke. You have to pay to use the computer too. The owners are really friendly and helpful though.
Great hostel, clean, comfortable, a 15 minute walk to the centre of town but opposite a great museum. No hot water sometimes.
Far from the town which was good to be left alone on the beach but bad for being close to things. Bathroom was really dirty, shower didn't work and toilet didn't flush half the time. Didn't get breakfast because staff were too hungover to get it. Wifi was good.
The staff in general was good but the 'chef' was painfully slow at putting some (cold) eggs on a plate for breakfast. The kitchen is badly equipped. Really warm showers, pretty good wifi and comfortable beds with a plug and lamp each!! In general a really great hostel.
Great hostel, but if you stayed elsewhere and booked activities through them it would be cheaper. Burgers from the bar are nice.
Nice hostel, good breakfast and pool table etc is good.

Nice hotel, good breakfast, laundry service was excellent - the cleanest our clothes have been since we arrived in South America!
A nice quiet place to chill out, not too far from the main square. The hostel itself is gorgeous, with incredible views, the only down side is there's no wifi.
Great bar and good food at a reasonable price (although it takes forever to arrive especially at breakfast time!). Nice staff. Lockers downstairs.
We had a brilliant time at Discovery, the location is great for the metro and buses to the main attractions as well as for going out in Lapa (Friday/Saturday night was brilliant). The atmosphere in the hostel was great as well, it was really friendly. Breakfast was delicious and we love the cat. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it highly!
