We stayed here one night and could easily have stayed a week. Very friendly and open hostel, our private room had a great bed, private bathroom, tv and ac. Only downside was the wifi didn't reach our room (room 19). They organise great tours from here and the price of he accommodation was very reasonable for a private. Would certainly... More

Stayed here for a week in a communal room. Staff & other guests were very friendly. Nice to have A/C as I was there in the middle of their summer. Would definitely go back. Maybe a tad pricey by hostel standards, but you get what you pay for.

I stayed for 5 days in a private room (number 6) and overall I thought it was pretty good. It was my first time in a hostel so can't compare to others but the room was clean, bed pretty comfortable and the shower was decent with lots of hot water. There was also a fan and air con in the... More

Excellent location, but not worth the money , especially for Brazil . Room is ok , not super clean . Staff is helpful and efficient but not friendly. Breakfast is simple , but ok. To summarize : not the best option in Rio if you can find sthg somewhere else .

I've stayed three nights at the Mango Tree in Rio and the best part of the hostel is definitely its location. Basically just around the corner from Ipanema beach and surrounded by all the restaurants and shops of the neighbourhood. Ipanema is probably one of the best neighbourhoods for staying in Rio, with lots to do and I felt really... More

This was the first place that we stayed in on our tour around South america and it is a great hostel, we had a private room located towards the back of the hostel with an ensuite bathroom. The location really is one of the best things about the Mango Tree because it is 30 steps from Ipanema beach and near... More

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.
