Perfect location. Close to many good restaurants and stores. One block from ipanema beach. Stayed in 3 different hostels in Rio and this was my favorite. Dormitories and facilities were average. Private rooms were nice for the price, beds not as comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast and atmosphere was average. The location was everything. Would stay here again.


This best thing with this hostel is the location, i don't think it could be better, just by the metro, near the beach and restaurants nearby. The hostel has a great relaxed and quiet atmosphere, with hammocks around and plants of all kinds. Not that many bathrooms though, so sometimes in the morning you had to wait or walk a bit around till you found one free. All-in-all i had a great stay. Again great great location!!


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.
