Property Description

In the heart of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, historic Chamounix (CHAM'-ah-nee) Mansion has welcomed overnight guests and groups for over fifty years. Originally built in 1802 as a country home, the mansion rests on a scenic bluff above the Schuylkill River and is convenient to Philadelphia's cultural and historic attractions, sporting events, and restaurants. Fairmount Park is home to Philadelphia’s greatest treasures. The Philadelphia Museum of Art (yes, you can run the steps and take your photo with Rocky), The Fairmount Waterworks, Shofuso Japanese House and Garden, The Please Touch Museum (which makes its home in the 1876 National Centennial Celebration’s Memorial Hall), many of the public sculptures, and the new Paine’s Skateboard Park are just a few of Chamounix’s neighbors in the park.

Latest Review

" While it is a beautiful old home, it is located quite far from everything. Also the beds are terrible. Old prison bed frames with 2-3 inch mattresses. Worst sleep of my trip. Spend the extra money and get a hotel or try one of the other Hostels in the area. "

Things to Note

Chamounix Mansion is in one of the most remote and beautiful areas of Fairmount Park. Therefore it is a bit off the beaten path but only a 15 minute walk through the tree-lined Chamounix Drive from the 38 Bus.

Hostelling International is a non-profit membership based organization whose mission is to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling. We have been promoting peace through hostelling since 1909. Non-members will be asked to pay a $3 daily membership fee per night upon check-in. Memberships are available at the hostel or online

We do not accept group bookings online(any reservation of 9+ people), for group bookings a guest must contact us directly as separate terms and conditions apply.


We have a daily lock-out period, from 11-4:30. All hostellers must leave the facility during that time.
We have a curfew: 2am

We are family friendly: all ages of hostellers get to know one and other here.

The maximum stay at Chamounix Mansion is 7 nights. Any reservation for more than seven nights will not be accepted, nor will it be confirmed, if you make separate consecutive 7 night reservations. Longer stays are possible on a case-by-case basis and can be discussed with our General Manager once you are on the premises.

Chamounix is great for hostellers who enjoy the city life, but are ready for the privilege of sleeping in a Colonial-era mansion surrounded by 200 year old trees, walking trails, bike paths, and our huge porch with cozy Adirondack chairs and friendly outdoor cats. Borrow a bike and ride up to Belmont Plateau where the best view of the Philly skyline can be seen.
