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

    I loved the hostel, the staff and the location. The only downside is that there is no proper kitchen for guests to cook in. There's a big kitchen that we are not allowed to use. Just one small self heated pan that is falling apart and has burn marks all over it.. its impossible to cook a meal there. Other than that, the rooms are lovely, clean and its quiet after 10pm. They organise great tours from the hostel. I loved the favela one. The big-dude tour is very rushed, so I don't recommend it.

    Can’t beat the location. Staff is helpful if you ask questions but don’t go out of their way to give suggestions. I stayed three nights in female dorm which was right off of the main social area. Not much of a social scene while I was there so it was quiet at night but impossible to sleep past 7:30 when they start preparing breakfast (which is worth the money!). I’m an early riser so this wasn’t a problem.

    The location is great! Other than that, It was a fine place, nothing special. The front desk staff seemed pretty disinterested and the hostel itself was a little too expensive IMO. Also, they charge a holding fee on my card that is released after check out, no one told me about this and I've never had that happen at another hostel before. It wasn’t a huge issue, I just didn't like it.

    Great location 5 mins away from Ipanema beach, walkable to Leblon and Copocabana and just down the road from a metro station for the rest of the city. The staff were fun and helpful and there's loads of chill out space in the hostel. It was pretty quiet while I was there (had a 12 bed dorm to myself one night) but can imagine that it's a lot more hectic in busier periods when full

    Love the vibe of the hostel, really cool. They have a lot of tours available at book at the hostel itself which seemed worth it. I was in a girls room and the bathroom was really clean. But next to our room was a shared bathroom which was pretty grim at times. The bin was often overflowing with used toilet paper, which made the area outside out room smell...

    Upon arrival we were each required to give a $100 damages deposit for the duration of our stay until checkout. This was very inconvenient as this was the last stop of our trip and we were unable to use the cash up before we left. Breakfast was also not included and cost $18 for a very basic spread. The showers were good and the downstairs common area was nice to relax in.

    I payed quite a bit for a room, the staff couldn't speak English when i arrived, there was no Atmosphere in the Hostel, hardly a bar and bedding is old and frilly. On top of it all, they couldn't tell me where a nice restaurant or Bar was in the area or where i could go out to party. So No info on surrounding bars and restaurants. All in all the reviews i read about the hostel was far greater than what it really was! Very Overpriced for what you get.

    Hostel looks decent on first look but the dorm rooms do not get cleaned after guests leave, the sheets they provide are see through and way to small for the mattress therefor you basically sleep on the dirty mattress like the people before you. The kitchen can hardly be called a kitchen as they do not even have a stove, it is not suited to cook a proper meal. The staff wasnt really interested in helping the guests ..some didnt even speak english. Location was the only good thing about the hostel
