    Discovery is located at one of the best spots for a hostel as it's in a central location and is less than a block from the metro. The facilities are well-maintained and very clean. Security was also never an issue. However, my favorite aspects of this hostel were it's staff and atmosphere. One of the staff members, David, was super friendly and made me feel at home. He gave some fantastic tours including a hike of the infamous Pedra da Gavea. If you're going to Rio, you MUST book Discovery!!!

    Such a great hostel, the staff are amazing and willing to help with any queries you may have! The hostel has activities and nights out planned every day so its very social and easy to meet people. Breakfast was standard hostel breakfast bread,ham,cheese, fruit ect. Only problem was that the wifi would cut out a lot which was slightly annoying, and there is only 2 toilets in the hostel so there was often a queue! However, such an amazing stay at discover, we will be back :)

    Full declaimer: this is an honest review. This hostel ist amazing... but as travelers we do have a responsibility to point out what they could have done better and what went wrong. There were major WiFi/internet issues for many days during our stay. This can happen (or maybe is not even their fault) - and again the amazing staff (both night staff and bar) do make up for it but we felt it was just not handled and communicated well, especially by any senior management. Would still stay again!
