The Mango Tree
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WONDERFUL GUESTS DURING THE RIO2016 OLYMPICS, THE BRONZE MEDAL WINNING ROWERS, AND THE SAILORS, OF THE NORWEGIAN OLYMPIC TEAM.
ALL ROOMS ARE NOW FITTED WITH FULL MOSQUITO NETTING.
August 2016: The Mango Tree is now 10 years old, and what better way to celebrate it than to host exclusively the competitors of several sports from Norway close to the location of their events. The Mango Tree and it's staff are immensely proud to have been given this opportunity and hope that our efforts allowed them to maximise their own.
Our location is unbeatable: one block from Ipanema beach and a stone's throw from the Metro, bars, restaurants and shops of vibrant Rio neighbourhood. The Mango Tree is set in a 1930s colonial style house in a quiet residential area, where we offer a relaxing place to sleep, meet other travelers, and sip a chilled caipirinha. Here you will find the comforts of a guest house (sprung mattresses, 100% cotton sheets, towels, and a real Brazilian style breakfast) combined with the warm welcome and atmosphere of a backpacker hostel.
Our house has 5 luxury double rooms, 3 budget ensuite private rooms, 3 private rooms without ensuite and 5 dorm rooms all with 6 beds. All our rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Our double rooms come with complimentary bottled water, soap, shampoo and conditioner. The dorm beds have extra thick mattresses and our showers are serviced by gas heated hot water for better pressure and no dodgy wiring!
Communal facilities include: our bar, patio gardens, fully equipped guest kitchen, bbq, tv room with free dvds, free internet and WIFI, surf board rental.
Start each day by enjoying your breakfast outside in our covered dining area before heading out for a day of sightseeing, adventure sports, or simply lazing around on Ipanema beach, which is only 50 metres away. On returning, why not sit around the garden sipping on capirinhas or fall asleep in a hammock underneath the mango tree. Check your email on our free internet access, enjoy DVD's in the common room, or sit in the lobby and enjoy a game with your friends.
If it is a specific trip you are after such as Sugarloaf Mountain, Corcovado, hang gliding or a tour of a Favela, then talk to our helpful English-speaking staff who can provide travel information, book tours and make recommendations.
We look forward to seeing you at The Mango Tree.
