I stayed here for 5 nights in January towards the end of a two month trip in S America. I have also travelled quite widely on other continents and have to say that Discovery Hostel ranks as one of the best hostels I have stayed at. The location is spot on, just a couple of minutes from Gloria Metro, the place is kept cleaner than some far more expensive places I have stayed, there is good aircon in the dorm rooms, filtered water is available on tap (a money saver, very convenient and good for the environment) and the area feels very safe. Most important, however, are the staff. I have just moved on to a quite expensive 'boutique' hotel in another city, splashing out at the end of my trip. Whereas the staff at Discovery actively volunteered information on places to go, places not to go after dark, and provided a general orientation in the big city, I have had to extract this sort of information piece by piece from my new place.
At Discovery they want you to have a great experience in the city they love; in my view they succeeded, in style.
