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

    Overall a good hostel. Internet is very slow. Good location close to beach and metro. Easy to get around. Most of the staff are friendly and willing to help you how to get to the sites. Good areas to hang out and meet people. I would stay again

    Great location and the room was great, but the common bathrooms and shower could have been cleaned more often.

    PROS: Great location, only a block from the beach and many stores. 24hr reception was very convenient, working AC and large lockers in the room. CONS: Dorm rooms are VERY small, old and worn down. The beds are made of noisy metal frames with a poor quality mattress and thin pillow. Blankets are only given with a R$30 deposit. Outlets are scarce and inconveniently located. Common areas are not conducive to socialization. Shared bathroom only had 1 toilet for several people.

    I had a brilliant time in this hostel but this was mainly due to a wonderful group of back packers staying there. The hostel is quite basic, the staff are not particularly helpful with organizing activities or giving advice. Overall a great place to stay but the hostel could seriously up their game with most aspects.

    We were in a female dorm w/ensuite. The bathroom was disgusting, black mold covered ceiling, walls and door. The room was ok, but one staff was staying there and had her stuff spread in the bathroom, taking up all the shower shelves and the towel rail. The wifi was awful, barely worked the first 3 days but was ok on the last day. There was a big storm one day, and the wifi didn't work at all, but it worked at other places. The common area was good, but when it rained it flood most of the space.

    Bikes are not good and way too expensive (one reason I booked the place). Staff seems annoyed, not too helpful. Booked because of free walking tours as shown in Hostelworld, doesn’t exist. Room is okay, but they shouldn’t place beds directly under air con. Dirty showers/wc. Toilets almost never flush. Clean staff took my stuff on the bed bc they thought I checked out. Bad system with the keys for the room. Good location though. Backyard is not too cozy, bar is a bottle on the table.
