We stayed at the Mango Tree for 5 days and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in one of the newly constructed private en-suite rooms which are really well fitted out and spotlessly clean. The staff are super helpful and the hostel offers a great range of trips and advise. Its a good hostel for meeting people but not noisy...

If you're heading to Rio and you've bothered to research lodging prices, you probably already know that to stay someplace nice is Rio is going to cost you $$$$$ ... so if you're on a budget, a hostel is probably going to be the best solution. I chose the Mango Tree because it had a decent location near the beach...

Over the last 8 months we have been constructing 6 new private rooms. The one the guests stayed in was the very first we were able to open, and indeed was offered to the guests prior to it being completely fitted out with all of the bathroom essentials such as a toilet paper holder and towel rail. The guests had...

Really enjoyed staying at this hostel. Great location right by the beach, just a short 5 minute walk away. Lots of shopping near by with stores and the markets. It was also super handy for catching the airport shuttle bus. Stayed in a private room but had to share the bathroom. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. But it is right...

I booked this place online because in the pictures it looked nice. I was met a friend in Rio so the first night I stayed in a dorm and when she arrived we switched to a private room. The dorm was okay and as one would expect - clean and basic. The breakfast is good and perfect for lone travelers...

I arrived around 7 in the morning and found a dead cockroach beneath a dirty towel in the bathroom. To be fair, the cleaning staff which does a great job doesn't get started until a little after 8 AM. Upon returning to that bathroom in the afternoon, I found it to be significantly cleaner. However the hostel as a whole...

we stayed at Mango Tree for one night in November. It was on the same street as the airport bus, and only a couple of short blocks from the beach. The staff were very friendly and let us store our luggage there both before and after, gave us much information and booked trips on our behalf. We stayed in a...

We found it hard to find good hostels in Rio and The Mango Tree was the best by far. The staff were very helpful - they even let us store our stuff there in the week before we checked in. Facilities were clean, and the transfers they organised were good too.

Mango Tree is a great hostel in a fantastic location - literally 2 seconds from the infamous Ipanema Beach. We had the presidential suite which was fantastic - clean spacious room and showeroom with a wall TV. There was also free internet and a cute little bar out back. The staff are really friendly and it's not at all loud....

Lovely hostel, clean, good atmosphere and a nice breakfast. The staff are very helpful, the location is very good, with the beach, restaurants, ATMs and shops very close, and the area is safe too. For New Years (and Carnaval), this place is quite expensive, but everything in Rio is for these times, so if you want to come at these...
