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

    Mango tree hostel is a such beautiful place to stay, at perfect location. There was a little bit moisture that was smelling bad in our room and the internet connection and speed have to be upgraded. The staff was nice

    Los baños dejan mucho que desear porque solo hay 2 funcionando para todos y al ser de ladrillo se moja y quedan sucisimos durante todo el dia. La cocina inexistente y sucia y el wifi imposible de utilizar. Un fastidio porque es complicado encontrar wifi en Brasil y los viajeros imposible comunicarse ni pedir uber ni nada. Los chicos del staff por otra parte son un punto a favor!

    Stayed two nights — requested a bottom bunk which was not honored (and that’s fine), second night I come back from being out all day and the sheets were stripped and I had a bare mattress at 2am (sweet!), cleaning bathrooms with strong cleaning smelled like bleach but at 10am, literally when people want to use the bathrooms, also, not many bathrooms, and icing on the cake was construction in the room — loud hammering and drills — at 10am. The place is great location, I wouldn’t stay again.

    First of all, 2 of the men that work the front desk seem annoyed if you ask for something. Sometimes, guests here will party loudly till 4am. The rooms are MOSTLY clean. The mattresses are gross and you'll see it bc the sheets always come off if you move in bed. The bathroom is usually dirty. The shower mats are too thin to stop the floor from getting soaked. The beneath the sinks are covered with mildew. You are charged for every little thing. No locks, beach towels or blankets here to rent.

    Good location and value for money but they charged my credit card R$100, R$300 then R$400 in two separate occasions without even telling me about the security deposit. Which supposed to be only R$100. I found that very annoying.

    Great location right on the beach in Ipanema surrounded by lots of good bars and cafes. Whilst the location is good, we didn’t love the hostel. The general areas aren’t cleaned frequently at all, including the bathrooms, and the wifi barely works. The place needs upkeep in general.

    Cool hangout area and great location. Could be a great hostel but seems like they are focused on just saving on costs rather than creating a nicehostel experience. Wifi never worked in the rooms & for 24 hours didn't work anywhere, no locks on dorm doors either. Mattresses were disgusting and looked like they were bought second hand from a seedy motel. Also its overpriced compared to other hostels in the area. Transportation to the pub crawl = taking shots in a group on a public bus. Nice.
