“Good Hostel in Ipanema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

I was here with my girl, in a double room with private bathroom, the hostel is good and there are a internal bar that open in the evening.
The guys of the staff are happy to give you information, and the room is cleaned every day, towels changed every two.
Excellent choice for visiting Rio and meet new people.

Nice hostel in a great area. staff were friendly and helpful and a lot of tours can be organised with the hostel directly. Rooms were basic, clean. Had a double room but had to share a bathroom. Breakfast only average. Very good option for a hostel in Rio

We stayed in a double room on two occasions, one time with ensuite and one time without. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Remember the adress and house number though, because on the outside there is no sign saying it's the mango tree. Breakfast is good, the area is safe, just a two minute walk from Ipanema beach. Other facilities are fine (clean bathrooms, enough spots to hang out and free wi-fi and computers for use). It's just a bit expensive, but Rio is expensive as a whole. Rooms are on the small side.

Room Tip: Choos a room in the back to get away from the street noise.

Fabulous location only 1 block from Ipanema beach. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm, comfortable beds-linen included, good breakfast, free wifi, friendly, helpful staff. Not a party hostel as the bar closes at 10pm and you have to leave the outside area, but that suited me fine

I stayed at the Mango Tree for one whole month. The hostel is located just 1 block far from the Ipanema beach.

The rooms are comfortable, wifi is available and is very efficient, breakfast is really great (with tropical fruits and juices!!!).

It is also located 4 blocks far from a metro station (General Osório) which runs efficient and quick metro lines to many areas of Rio including City Center and Copacabana. The hostel is just 20min taxi drive to the domestic airport (SDU), and about 45min taxi drive to the international airport (GIG).

I am recommending it to everyone. The price was great. The staff was very attentive, alert, friendly, quick and efficient.

I only had 40 hours in Rio and I was travelling on my own I wanted somewhere easy, safe and friendly. I also wanted somewhere I could organise some trips from. I got all this from the Mango Tree - I booked a single room, which was perfectly adequate. I was able to leave my luggage safely for the whole day even after I'd checked out which was SO useful! There was a pleasant area to sit and relax and it was not far from shops and the beach. Breakfast was enjoyable and perfectly adequate - fresh fruit and cereal and fresh bread.

I was totally satisfied by my brief time there - it wasn't a larhe place, but it had all I required! It was also great to go somewhere where my lack of Portuguese wasn't an issue. I received good advice about trips and I thoroughly enjoyed the one I did which took me round the sights I'd hoped to see. If back in Rio I'd probable go back there.

Room Tip: Not sure about the shared bedrooms, not sure how much space in those rooms.

I stayed here in April 2012 and after staying at other hostels in Rio, this is the best one.
Great safe location. Close to Ipanema beach, subway, many bars and restaurants. Staff is nice and helpful. It can be quite noisy as I stayed at a dorm outside overlooking the courtyard area. Bathrooms are not the cleanest but ok. Good breakfast too. I totally recommend it.
