Casa Mango Mango isn't all things to all people. But, for me, I spent a few weeks there - my first in Rio - and they treated me like family. Everyone that worked there was quite generous in their time and help -- getting me oriented, recommending places to see, giving me background in finding work, how to stay safe...

It´s in arty Santa Teresa - this alone gives it almost a refugee status from the backpackers´ bedlam of Copacobana and Ipanema. The area feels safer, and is walking distance to many good restaurants and partyland Lapa, should you wish. Great, personalised recommendations are given to you on the back of a local map on arrival, re. food, dance and...

I have been coming to Rio for the last couple of years and have stayed in quite a few hostels when over here. Casa Mango Mango is a hidden gem in the hills of Santa Teresa with friendly staff, great rooms and excellent food. I would not hesitate recommending it for anyone looking for low cost yet high quality accommodation.

We stayed one night here as we arrived a day early in Rio and needed somewhere to stay. The house itself is old and lovely. We were shown to our room on the ground floor, but it feels like you are in the basement. In the corridor there was a leak and a cloth laid on the floor to soak...

A lovely, friendly hotel in a great district. The hotel seemed to attract really interesting clientel that had a genuine interest in Brazilian culture.

I stayed here twice. the room was great and the place has real character. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. You are bang in the heart of Lapa which in my view is the best place for going out. The breakfast was really good too. Thanks for everything!!! Richard & Jamie

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa MangoMango is one of the few places to stay in Rio where you can relax in a magnificent colonial, tropical setting and yet be right next to the best nightlife and activities this marvelous city offers. Set in a quaint cobbled street in the old part of the city, Santa Teresa, Casa MangoMango offers easy access both to beaches, forest and city. The house is on the the hundred-year old tram route, only ten minutes from the city centre. The house itself is a huge colonial mansion, guarded by two magnificent bi-centenarian mango trees. Hence the name, Casa MangoMango! Resplendent with original features, the house has been restored and decorated in funky, upbeat designs to cater for every taste. And outside, in the lovely, tropical gardens, there’s a cool pool too! Built by Julia Lopes, a Brazilian novelist, journalist, playwright, and lecturer, the house hosted many a sarau for the literati of the early 20th century. Today we try to keep her spirit alive by inviting local artists to display their work and employing local musicians on our multi-lingual staff. Our musical and artistic events may well be some of your best holiday memories in Brazil. ... more   less

“pay a little extra is worth it in this hostel, you will get a much better room. If you want to change money, do it at the airport if you can, you will have to take a cab to go downtown to do so if you didn't do it before arriving at the Hostel. We found the best food around Ipanema and downtown, the restaurants around the hostel were not so great and a lot of them are only open for lunch.”
