    I had stayed at 4 hostels in total in Rio, and Discovery was my favourite. The area is best for exploring all the sights, and it's a stone throw away from Gloria metro. The infrastructure in the hostel is great as they can arrange almost anything for you - soccer game, favela tour, tour of rio etc. The cleanliness is good, and the breakfast is satisfying. I would definitely stay there again.

    Stop looking for places to stay in Rio. This is where you need to stay. There’s enough people to have a social atmosphere, but small enough to keep everyone close. Hot water every shower, outlets at every bed. Amazing free breakfast, and tons of tours you can sign up for. The location is so close to the metro you will never not be able to find the hostel, or have trouble explaining to a taxi driver where to drop you off. Shout out to Benjamin and Igor, awesome guys!

    One of my all-time favourite hostels. Amazing staff, safe location, clean and really easy to meet people. There were always opportunities to go out with guests/staff, but it was also quiet during the night if you wanted to sleep. I was sad to leave this place.

    the staff was amazing and it’s so close to the metro which you can use to get anywhere in the city. there are lots of quick food options around it at night if you don’t wanna go out as well as an excellent breakfast. a very lively atmosphere you can get drinks with friends and sing along or hang out on the couch and just watch netflix. overall great value and really highlighted my stay in Rio!

    This is a very social hostel with incredibly helpful staff. I had a really nice time. I would say I found the bathrooms to be a bit dirty and while I was not bit by bed bugs I did hear of another guest who was. They did promptly spray the building the next day though.
