If I were just reviewing the hostel I would say it was great. Lovely pool, good breakfast, clean room and the staff were helpful and friendly, especially the new young guy. However I just couldn't recommend staying here because of the location. The road is very quiet due to roadworks and most taxis can't get up to the hostel. As...

This beautiful property is worth a visit. The service could have been a little more personal but the room itself was absolutely glorious, the most spacious room that I've ever stayed in, fantastic shower, comfortable bed, the house has a wonderful quiet atmosphere, not for people wanting to mingle and party. A friend and I stayed here on our last...

Casa located on a hilltop, surrounded by many tropical plants and trees, with a beautiful view over the down-town part of Rio. Amazing view in the night...and that would be the only good thing about that place. Poor service, cheap breakfasts (or no breakfast on the day that we were checking out), no water in the swimming pool, no air-condition...

This could have been a nice stay. However, Rua Joaquim Murtinho Street is having extensive roadworks, so traffic is blocked at all times. The very expensive taxi I paid to get to Casa MangoMango from Santos Dumont airport could not reach the place. I had to wait until a government van came to pick up residents and drop me in...

Stayed here during my stopover in the Clipper Round the World yacht race. A lovely peaceful oasis in the bustling city of Rio. The welcome was very welcoming in the cool peaceful surrounds of the guest house. Eventually stayed in 3 rooms due to my late change of dates but all facilitated without problems, even when they had to move...

Instead of staying in a modern hotel in Ipanema, we went with Casa MangoMango, a hundred-year-old house in the hilltop neighborhood of Santa Teresa. No regrets! - Walking distance from best nightlife in Rio (Lapa district) for live Samba. - Amazing location with amazing views - Delicious food - Fast Wifi - Clean and comfortable

We loved this place. We arrived early in the morning in a rather stressed, busy state and we were given breakfast on arrival which instantly relaxed us! Sadakne was just a pleasure. She made us feel very welcome, which we really appreciated. Casa Mango Mango consists of a large main house and a number of smaller standalone buildings on the...

Small hotel in the hill in Santa Teresa, just 5minute by feet to the active night life of Lapa. Service is correct and the room are just enough for a few nights. the rooms are located in small bungalow on the hill. The night life in Rio is famous and this you can hear also from your room. But Samba...

My wife and I stayed there and loved the area it's in. It's not near Copacabana, so if you want to party on the beach it's not the place, though it is in the middle of Santa Theresa which is a nice artistic area with lots of little shops and restaurants and great views of the city. And it's easy...

Casa Mango Mango was the perfect place for us to stay in Rio. The place has an air of shabby-chic cool and was spot on for exploring the cultural delights of Santa Teresa, and the rest of Rio's attractions. The staff were incredible in everyway - the sort of assistance and personal touch that would be beyond the ability of...

Staying in Santa Teresa

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.”
