The latest news on Discovery Hostel and Rio de Janeiro
Thousands of travelers arrive at our home in the beginning, middle or end of a great journey. And we are honored that we can be a part of that. To be a stop on your path to exploring the world and learning all it has to offer is a humbling experience. When you return home and look back on your trip, if we have made a small impact, if we had embeded ourselves as positive memories that you will carry with you for the rest of your life - now this is the reason why we started Discovery Hostel in the first place.
We know what it is like to arrive at the unknown, anxious and maybe alone. We have felt the excitement of making new friends and discovering new places. We know the bitter sweet sting of moving on while also wishing you could stay just a little bit longer - to make the seconds stretch as long as possible - to squeeze all of the essence of this moment that you can before it fades away. As travelers we have found many people and places that have made us feel like we belong in this mad mad world. Beautiful satisfaction that indeed the truth is; no matter where you go there are good people, beautiful places and memories worth making. And we carry them with us and placed them all in our home, with the hopes that you too will feel the same.
After all, traveling is not about the destination - it is the journey, it is the feeling and it lives within you.
We can't say this enough - but without you and your love of adventure, our hostel would not be possible. Thank you for arriving, smiling, loving, laughing, sharing and being you. We hope you come back soon.
All of us at Discovery Hostel (past, present and future!)
