Great hostel good breakfast great helpful staff wifi slow but ok


Unfriendly crowd in hostel. Good breakfast. Poor wifi. Just didn't feel at Home there.


Good breakfast and good atmosphere but terrible WIFI which is not even worth having; I had to leave the hostel in order to send messages to friends and family at home. You're also charged R$15 more per night (excluding deposit) to book through hostel world. Staff were not particularly friendly.


Very disorganized and unprofessional. Staff do not know what they are doing and they moved my things out of a locked locker and temporarily lost my bag and passport. Horrible.

Great hostel a little on the expensive side but the dorms were nice and clean as were the bathrooms. Reliable hot water. Close to the Main Street in Impanema and one block from the beach. Staff were really helpful


Don't bother staying anywhere else in Rio. Mango Tree has it all -- great location, great staff, great guests, great facilities, and a whole lot of charm.


The hostel is good for those who just want a place to stay in a good location in Rio. Actually, the location is its strength, in the heart of Ipanema, one of the best neighborhoods in Rio. The bar is ok and you must shut up after 10pm. They literally ask you to whisper after that time. The staff is ok, not bad but also not friendly. It's not a party hostel, but it's ok for sleeping and have a well located base to explore the city.


This place is all about the location! Really close to Ipanema beach and many restaurants. Common area is nice, but the dorms were rather run down and there were only shutters, no windows, so quite a lot of mosquitoes at night; also a lack of sockets. Bathroom not quite clean enough. However, breakfast was quite good and staff was reliable, friendly and helpful in organizing transportation or tours, which worked pretty well. As said before, the location is excellent in the heart of Ipanema!


The Mango Tree Hostel is a great place to stay in Rio da Janeiro. Good location and excellent staff. In my opinion the only problem is the noise in the rooms 4 and 5. It is a busy avenue , so it is difficult to sleep in these rooms.


We had a bad experience at this hostel owing to a shockingly rude manager. A misunderstanding relating to when our bill was due resulted in us being shouted at, bullied and disrespected. After the manager admitted the error was the fault of the hostel, I got nothing more than an insincere apology and only after he was prompted to do so. I feel this kind of treatment of guests is unacceptable and it is an embarrassing display of the unprofessionalism of the manager/staff of this hostel.
