We've stayed at Mango Tree Rio a couple of times; it's a clean well located hostel that offers great trips and is a great base while in Rio. However, we seen the Hostel's manager being quite rude and aggressive to guests on two separate occasions - first because somebody commented on the expense of a sky diving trip and second... More

located very close to the beach of ipanema. quiet place to sleep centrally. bars, restaurants, atm and shopping around the corner. offers a kitchen with fridge and a small bar which is not open all day. the ideal location makes it to a good choice for a backpacking hostel in rio.

Ipanema really is one of the better places to stay in Rio, and this hostel is probably the best value in the area. Generally very clean, with friendly staff and lots of activities available. The one let down was the fact that the bar on-site is weekend only.

Mango Tree is a really familiar and friendly place. it is really comfortable, clean, neat and QUIET. It is possible to have a good night sleep here. The staff is also amazing, they helped out organize a trip to Ilha Grande and gave me tips on how to get to Corcovado and Pão de Açúcar, best attitude always no matter... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in total. We did the first 2 nights in a 6 bed dorm and last 3 nights in a private room. The dorm was adequate. Probably not enough plug sockets, there was no small lights so you had to wander around in the dark at night so you didn't wake anyone else with the big... More

This was the biggest hostel I stayed in while travelling round South America and I really enjoyed it, it's so big that you get to know a lot of different people and we all went out in Lapa as a big group which is safer for one thing and cheaper taxi's! There is more than two bathrooms so I wasn't... More

I stayed here 3 nights. This place is great to meet people and it is only 1 block away from the beach. Supermarket and restaurants are not too far away. The room I stayed in has air-con, I use the share bathroom. Breakfast was good, they provide fresh fruits and juice. Reception staffs are very helpful.

Mango tree - 4 Private ensuite room was great and cleaned every day. Super location, 2 minutes from Ipanema beach, which is beautiful, and under 10 minutes to the Metro. Safe feel with 24 hour reception cover and gated front door. Breakfast was good (breads, ham, cheese, cake and fruits). Vibe was friendly and pretty chilled. Only negative was that... More
