    Really amazing time at Discovery. The hostel feels like a home, with extremely helpful and personable staff who remember you instantly. Breakfast great, banana pancakes every other day! Stayed elsewhere in Rio but came back here as it was so good

    Stay one night at The Discovery Hostel and you will see why this is the only place to stay during your time in Rio. Recommended by virtually every fellow traveler having been to Rio, the hostel has a great atmosphere, great location and an incredibly helpful and friendly staff and ownership. Would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Rio, The Discovery will not disappoint. Can’t wait for my return! ✌🏼&❤️ Phil

    I felt so at home at discovery! The staff and volunteers are amazing, particularly Igor (reception) who went above and beyond to help us, making bookings for us and suggesting places to go out, and Andy and Nahuel (volunteers) who make cakes each night for breakfast and generally made us feel really at home. Beds were really comfortable, showers hot and clean and the location is great for getting around. Good atmosphere, nice cocktails, easy to meet people and to make friends. I'd stay again!

    Great location by Gloria metro - rio is a huge city so being near the metro is the best way to get around. The staff and guests were all super friendly and the staff were always helpful. The hostel also offers a great range of tours/excursions even if some are a touch pricier than you could do by yourself. The only other criticms are I saw a cockroach haha, could happen anywhere, and not that many bathrooms. But a great fun place and really nice breakfast too.

    Amazing staff! Good atmosphere if you love to drink and chat. Can be too noisy for some. Was for us as we wanted to get up early to explore. They close off the areas around the bedrooms at midnight so you can sleep which is good. The only bad thing is the showers were super dirty and looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months. Besides that great place. Free Breakfast and super friendly staff that were always helpful and talkative.
