Discovery was my first ever hostel on my first ever solo travel.
In the chaos that a big city can feel like, this place has been like an oasis.
Discovery does everything to make sure this place is home for a few days.
After you check in, you're shown the storage for your backpack and the massive lockers to store whatever you will be using. The bathrooms are excellent and because of the frequency with which they are cleaned, I actually got to know the cleaning staff a little! The beds are clean and comfy and the kitchen is excellent.
These things are massively important, but as a solo traveller the real treasure here was the vibe and the friendships.
The awesome carrot/lemon/banana cake is shared together and over breakfasts plans are discussed where everyone is free to tag along with anyone. At night people share a few homemade caipirinhas and discuss where to go that night.
I left Discovery hostel a day ago to meet up with friends I'd made there and I will be meeting up with others. In one week I have made friends all over the world, and that includes the staff - easily among the nicest people I have ever met.
The first week of my lengthy trip was unforgettable, in no small part because of my stay here. I was sad to leave, but I will definitely be back!! - Andy
