Rio is not cheap. If you prefer to spend your money on drinks, meals or outdoor adventures rather than fancy hotels, then you’ll want to avoid expensive beach zone (Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana). Discovery Hostel is a place for travellers who want great value for money and a fun, social atmosphere. Discovery is 2 minutes’ walk from Glória metro station meaning you can be at the beach in 20 minutes. It is also walking distance (or a very quick taxi ride) from the bars and clubs of Lapa.

The hostel features light, brightly decorated common areas, a range of dorms and private rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, bar and patio and all the things you’d expect from a great hostel.
