    A recepção é ótima, o ambiente também. Café da manhã é 12 reais quando não está incluso na reserva. Os ambientes são bem lindos, com uns móveis antigos e plantas, roupa de cama limpas e fornecem toalha, só não curti a higiene das cortinas do banheiro que estavam com uma camada marrom de sujeira. A localização é ótima, próximo do aterro do flamengo e conveniências. No geral o hostel é ótimo e recomendo

    Great Hostel. It's a little small, but the staff is super friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is great if you are looking for a family vibe I would definitely go here, there are always people to connect with and hang out with. The breakfast is good and you are close to downtown if that is what you are looking for.

    We loved our stay at discovery hostel! Perfect location, close to metro for access to Copacabana and Ipanema beaches but also in nice happening area. Its quite a small hostel but has that family run kinda vibe. Staff are super friendly and hostel attracted nice people, a lot of them solo travellers so perfect if you wanted to meet people.

    Very kind staff that tried to make fun accommodations for their guest. Shower room should have a curtain or door to the entrance. Everything felt very cramped and it was hard to get personal space here at times. Would still recommend for those looking to meet new people and stay close to beach.

    The receptionist was kind and helpful. I stayed only one night and I figured out that many of my staff had been stolen!
