That was an awesome experience in Rio!! The hostel is near (1 block) to the beach Ipanema, to the Rodrigo do Freitas lake, to copacabana and 1 block to McDonalds also d: Most of the staff of the hostel are extremely kind (just one is grumpy) the breakfast is basic but delicious! Really advisable!! Only they have to tell about the cat in the hostel, because many people is allergic to them...

Mango tree is a pretty awesome hostel. You won't want for anything - good bathrooms, hot showers, good lockers, good beds, great breakfast, good bar, helpful staff, good tours, good security, perfect location 1 block from the beach and in the best district. It is quite expensive compared with other hostels, so because of that, if I had to suggest anything, it would be nice to have a shelf and some hooks in the dorms to make things easier, and maybe mosquito nets on the windows. :)

Nice place and nice staff. A good option if you're looking to stay at Rio's beaches.

I stayed at Mango Tree for about 10 nights and I had an amazing stay there. The hostel is only a block away from Ipanema Beach, and other parts of the city are easily accessible by bus. The hostel has a very laid-back and fun vibe and is a great place to meet other travelers. However, what really makes the hostel incredible is the staff - very cool, fun and helpful! (Renata, Mateus, Richard & Michael - thanks for evrything!!!)

I've been travelling in Brasil for 4 months, and everytime I go to Rio I've stayed at mango tree! it is just because I know that no other place can beat it! The staff is just wonderful, really helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is really nice, always meet new friends there, and the breakfast is really good! The service is really good, the staff will always help you with what you need! It is also really close and easy to go to the beach! Can't say anything bad about it! Love mango tree! :)

The two fellas- the Aussie, Rich and the American, Michael, are the entire atmosphere of the place along with Mateos, the Brazilian.

Great location in the center of Ipanema, very close to the beach. A clean place, with many people around, yet doesn't feel crowded.

Stayed here for 6 nights and this is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Really clean, friendly and helpful staff and fantastic location - one block away from Ipanema beach. Breakfast is great - buffet style with bread, ham, cheese, fresh papaya and watermelon, muesli, yogurt etc. - the works! Rooms and bathroom were really clean, bedsheets replaced every day. Slightly quieter atmosphere than other hostels I've been in but would still very highly recommend this hostel!

It was all and all a really great place. The one critique would be that the bar area is only open until 10pm. Other than that, it is really great!!

The best hostel we stayed on ou trip in Brazil. Very friendly English speaking staff. Lovely breakfast and relatively clean rooms and bathrooms. You don't need more- excellent location- this place will see me again! Thx to Rich and his team!

They clean every day, excellent location, there was a brasilian girl of the staff that was very rude, she should be more polite. Guys there aren't enough switchs on the 6 people room I was. I had bad luck with some room partners, but it's a nice hostel. Lots of english speakers.

I enjoyed staying at this hostel. The location is great, one block from Ipanema beach. The hostel was also quiet for those that want to be able to get a good night sleep. It was also clean. And even though the rooms are not locked, they provide locks for the lockers which most hostels usually dont provide.

Great location! Only one block from Ipanema Beach in a very safe area. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area and different tours. Fun relaxed environment.

The location is perfect. Only one block far from Ipanema beach. There are some details that would make the difference, like: they should install mirrors in the bedrooms (I stayed in a private room with shared restroom) so this could avoid using the restroom sometimes; should install some shelf at the shower, because you have to let your soap/shampoo on the floor; and try to fix the noise of the air conditioning. Good breakfast.
