I've had two experiences at The Mango Tree Hostel. I've noticed some consistencies and inconsistencies throughout my time there. I'll start by saying that this hostel meets a backpackers most basic needs; great location (a 5 minute walk from a beautiful area of the Ipanema beach), clean water, clean rooms, decent breakfast. Where this hostel lost a few points for... More

Visit Rio De Janeiro for 2 days transit. Got no one but myself to blame for choosing this accommodation. Plus: the location is great, the building is new and okay. The bed room and facilities are clean. Room for improvement: got welcome by receptionist named gabriela that had no hesitant to show her forced smile. On the booking sheet, it... More

great location, quiet, comfortable, friendly and helpful staff. i loved it, and would definitely return. it was affordable, and close to the beach, the metro, shopping, groceries, etc. i would recommend the mango tree looking for a nice place to stay in Rio.

Maybe it was my expectations but our room in no way could be described as luxury!!! Our room was of a decent size but there were a number of issues... 1) The room (and area outside it) stank of urine. Staff said this was common and was caused by a drain that frequently blocked... 2) The blanket had a massive... More

Excellent location, very helpful staff, roasting hot power showers, spacious and clean rooms that provide locks for backpack size lockers. Wifi was also very good. I would highly recommend this hostel. Make sure to book in advance as it gets very busy at certain times of the year!

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
