Stayed in a private double room with ensuite. The room was basic but adequate, and the sink/toilet were somewhat plugged and there was a fairly frequent sewage smell in and outside the room. The shower was good. Breakfast was ok. Staff were friendly. Nothing is cheap in Ipanema or Copacabana, but even so I'd say Mango Tree is somewhat overpriced... More

This is a super hostel. Really close to the beach (about one minute walk) it also does a lovely breakfast. The staff are super friendly. They will give lots of advice and help book tours. They do Borge private and dorm rooms. Very good value. Well worth a stay!

My number one favorite hostel in Ipanema so far. The location is superb. Only few minutes walk to the beach. The staff are amazing. I love the common area. Will definitely stay in this hostel again. Highly recommend this to everyone. Good value for money.

Possibly my favorite hostel experience ever. Went with a friend and stayed in the private, superior room which gave us the best of both worlds: privacy and space with the social aspects of a hostel. The room was as nice or nicer than those at the actual hotels we stayed in Brazil. Super clean, great shower, spacious, great air conditioner.... More

The hotel recommended shuttle was great and brought us right to the front door of the hostel. Check in was fine. The location is excellent, very, very close to Ipanema Beach and a bunch of fun restaurants and shops. Our private double room with ensuite bathroom was located right off of a small garden courtyard, which we thought would be... More

Great location. Place was quiet and felt very safe. Staff were excellent. Only a short walk from the beach. Only complaints was the hostel was very expensive and as a result, breakfast could've been better, especially for the money.

If you want to be close to the beach there really is no better place to stay. You're on the beach in a couple of minutes! Restaurants everywhere and just another couple of minutes to a supermarket. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom. Good size, with wardrobe, AC, fan, TV, wi-fi. A bit noisy. Not from the... More

We had a private double room with ensuite. Excellent location - really this is why you stay here for the location! 1 street back from the beach - and close to shops/supermarket. Great staff, helpful with tours and what to see/do etc. Breaky included that had VEGEMITE! Only aussies would understand! So good. We would happily stay again and recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in one of the best spots in Rio, just a block away from the world famous Ipanema beach, the Mango Tree offers a relaxing place to sleep, meet other travellers, and taste a chilled caipirinha. At our hostel you will find the comforts of a guest house (sprung mattresses, 100% cotton sheets, towels, a real Brazilian style breakfast, and our famous gas heated power showers) coupled with the warm welcome and atmosphere of a backpacker hostel. Ipanema is a safe residential district within easy reach of the Sugar Loaf and Corcovado. As well as the beach, it offers a wide range of bars and restaurants to suit all budgets, and plenty of shopping opportunities such as the weekly Sunday Hippie Market. The Mango Tree is based in a newly renovated 1930's colonial style house in a quiet residential area. It has 13 private rooms (2 triple, 2 twin, 10 with en-suite, all air-conditioned), 30 dorm beds, and all the facilities to make your stay with us the most memorable of your trip. ... more   less
