New partner – Mango Tree Hostel

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.

Start each day by enjoying your breakfast outside on our covered deck before heading out for a day of sightseeing, adventure sports, or simply lazing around on Ipanema beach, which is only 50 metres away. Relax in the garden sipping a beer or fall asleep in a hammock underneath the mango tree. Check your email on our free internet access, enjoy DVDs in the common room, or sit in the lobby and enjoy a game with your friends.

We work with a variety of local tour operators who offer a range of trips from the classics such as the Corcovado and Favela Tour, to the excitement of hang gliding or a game at the Maracanã stadium. Our English-speaking staff are always on hand to provide tips, travel information, book tours and make recommendations.

Set up by an Anglo-Brazilian former travel journalist, and an Australian with ten years experience in the hospitality industry, the Mango Tree is a relaxed and tranquil escape from the frantic pace of Rio de Janeiro, and, while we are on the doorstep of all its exciting nightlife, our hostel is a quiet place to get a good night’s sleep.

We look forward to seeing you at The Mango Tree.
