Really excellent hostel. 9 weeks traveling so far and one of my favourite stays so far. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, good kitchen, solid breakfast, very helpful front desk and the location speaks for itself. Stayed up the road at lemon spirit before coming to mango tree. Mango tree is better value for money in every sense. The staff are genuinely helpful and friendly and the whole place lacks that fake "trying too hard to be your friend" vibe you get from some of the party hostels.


Nice hostel with good security and close to the beach. Clean hostel with good breakfast.


os banheiros são muito sujos, além dos quarto serem extremamente apertados e sujos também. pelo preço cobrado o atendimento deveria ser mais cordial, principalmente com os brasileiros.


Amazing location, but sort of felt more like a hotel than a hostel in that people kept to themselves more and were more vacationers than travelers. Great place for groups who want to go to the beach and bars in the area and are not too limited by a budget (the area is very expensive).


Our room didn´t ligth and the administration only put a advise, room very small and, one door for two rooms, men´s bath in first floor not inside room.


En general estuvo bien, tiene una buena ubicación el hostel. Estuve en 2 ocasiones en hab de 6 y en la segunda estadía fue casi una de 12 pers dado que eran 2 hab de 6 con 1 sola puerta de ingreso. El personal no tiene buena información de medios de transporte para ir al aeropuerto o la terminal de omnibus que es algo básico para cualquier turista. La 1era estadía tuvo una buena relación precio calidad, la segunda dado que era sábado fue algo caro.


Fantastic Location, just 1 block (hardly 5 min) from the Ipanema Beach. All basic amenities, clean and nice atmosphere, The staff is very friendly, they could guide most of the location to visit around. Will definately stay in Mango Tree whenever back to Rio.Value for money.

I liked everything about this hostel except for the Wi-Fi only seemed to work in the common area, not in the rooms or front part of hostel. A simple fix of adding another router would fix this issue.


My 4 nights there were lovely. However, this hostel attracts families and older individuals. Expect people to go to sleep early and expect you to do the same. The staff consists of foreigners and some Brazilians. If you need recommendations, ask the Brazilians!

Muy buena ubicación. Las habitaciones son amplias pero lo único que al ser camas marineras de tres es incomodo si te toca dormir en la de arriba de todo. El personal trabajando muy amable y te ayudan en lo que necesites. Te orientan sobre excursiones y lugares para conocer.
