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.
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.
This hostel is in a great location one street back from the beach. However, its location feels sheltered and there is always someone on reception watching who enters and leaves the hostel. The rooms are simple, comfortable and cleaned daily. The bar area is a great place to meet people and has a really good atmosphere most of the time. The staff are generally OK but some members of reception tend to seem a little stand-offish. Not my favourite hostel in Rio but I'd definitely go back!
Thu location is amazing, perfect! But the facilities and cleaness could be much better.
Awesome location! You can go walking to the beach taking nothing else than your sandals. Great breakfast and very close to good bars and restaurants. Very easy to take taxis in front of it. Very good private rooms for couples. Staff could be more caring. The TV remote was missing when I got there, so I asked for 3 different people but no one provided it to me in the whole week I stayed there.
