Property Description


Our location is unbeatable: one block from Ipanema beach and a stone's throw from the Metro, bars, restaurants and shops of vibrant Rio neighbourhood. The Mango Tree is set in a 1930s colonial style house in a quiet residential area, where we offer a relaxing place to sleep, meet other travelers, and sip a chilled caipirinha. Here you will find the comforts of a guest house (sprung mattresses, 100% cotton sheets, towels, and a real Brazilian style breakfast) combined with the warm welcome and atmosphere of a backpacker hostel.

Our house has 5 luxury double rooms, 3 budget ensuite private rooms, 3 private rooms without ensuite and 5 dorm rooms all with 6 beds. All our rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Our double rooms come with soap, shampoo and conditioner. The dorm beds have thick mattresses and our showers are serviced by gas heated hot water for better pressure and no dodgy wiring!

Communal facilities include: our bar, patio gardens, BBQ, TV, free internet and WIFI, surf board and bike rental.

Start each day by enjoying your breakfast (not included) outside in our covered dining area before heading out for a day of sightseeing, adventure sports, or simply lazing around on Ipanema beach, which is only 50 metres away. On returning, why not sit around the garden sipping on capirinhas or fall asleep in a hammock underneath the mango tree. Check your email on our free internet access or sit in the lobby and enjoy a game with your friends.

If it is a specific trip you are after such as Sugarloaf Mountain, Corcovado, hang gliding or a tour of a Favela, then talk to our helpful English-speaking staff who can provide travel information, book tours and make recommendations. View House Rules

    João at reception is fantastic. Very helpful, quick to respond to emails. Hostel is in a great location for Ipanema, and one of the cheapest. However, the facility is worn down. Bed mattress was old. Sheets were clean, but stained and VERY old. Standards EVEN for hostels are much higher nowadays. So, improvements are necessary. But if you just need a place to sleep/shower, this works place works for a few days. Some staff/guests were not strict about wearing a mask. That is a problem.

    Excelente ubicación, estuvimos en habitación privada que limpiaban todos los días, aires acondicionados funcionaban muy bien. Tuvimos un inconveniente con la habitación y el staff lo solucionó rápidamente. Los espacios comunes los limpiaban todos los días, la cocina nos pareció que no estaba muy limpia. Volverí a quedarme! Muchas gracias por todo!

    Booked a private room and was a little overpriced I’d say. Not much atmosphere at the time either especially when you’d expect it to be busy

    The place was disgusting the bathrooms caused me to go to my friends hostel to use the shower , everyone was loud and you would hear it everywhere. I mean loud at 12-3am in the common space. We tried to eat but all the tables had smoking butts and ash all over from people and they did not enforce people cleaning up after themselves. I would never stay here again, go down the street to El Misti and have a 5x better experience. The staff was helpful and nice but complacent

    I made several reserations on different countries throughout due to covid 19 I was not able to fly to those countries and I started to send emails to the hotels and all of them canceled my reservation without a penalty BUT MANGO TREE didn't want to cancel, they charged me the whole amount and their response was you booked a non refundable room. Just to SAY IT, the other hotels were so nice, they understood the situation and agreed to cancel without any changes.
