Discovery hostel is a 10 minute ride to the foothills of Sugar Loaf Mountain, also known as Pão de Açúcar.
Take a breathtaking cable car to the peeks of each mountain, where you can enjoy some tourist shops and restaurants. Skip the shops and head right to the edge where you will see all that Rio de Janeiro has to offer. Panoramic views are even better at dusk. Get there a little bit early with a good book and you can recline on their many open benches. Beat the crowd to the top and grab a seat - the main attraction starts when the sun sets.
