Reviews about Discovery Hostel
“All went well. The staff is really good, all the facilities are really good. I really liked the place in general. it is close to super markets and other stores. And the public transport is very good.”
“Good location, outside of the traditional Copa/Ipaneba/Leblon neighborhoods. Middle-class neighborhood closer to the nightlife.”
“This hostel was by far my favourite hostel that I have visited in Brazil! There are many solo travellers and everyone is sociable over here! Very easy to make friends and to make trips together! Besides this, they organize a lot within the hostel itself which is a plus definitely if it is your first time in Rio! I have been here during Carnival and it was an amazing experience! Although, everyone is there to enjoy the bloco's on the street but if you were not feeling well you were also able to rest in the hostel! Further, the staff is always friendly and very helpful whenever you need anything. The rooms are of a good size and are clean (even with Carnaval), I stayed in the girls' dorm with its own bathroom. Besides that, I felt very secure in the hostel. Another big plus is that there is a bank just in front of the hostel where you could withdraw money!! So you do not have to worry to carry a lot of cash with you to the hostel, as I was able to leave it straight in the safety box that I carried with me. The neighbourhood and street where the hostel is located I would say is completely safe during the day, however, when it is getting dark you should be more aware of your surroundings! It was not that I felt unsafe but I recommend to be more aware even when you go to the supermarket around the corner! However, I would highly recommend everyone that has plans to go to Rio to stay in this hostel!!”
“I arrived at Discovery on a Friday night and instantly took to the vibe of the place, before I knew it I was out in the nearby Lapa with plenty of other travellers, embracing Rio's nightlife. The location is ideal, the staff a dream, and you could barely ask for more from your stay in the city.”
“Great hostel within walking distance of the center. Helpful staff, clean bathrooms, nice private rooms, basic breakfast and lots of activities and nice people to meet.”
