Hostelworld says:

Home at the Mansion was rated the most popular hostel in Melbourne at the 2011 Hoscars and no wonder - it's centrally located near Queen Victoria Market, Federation Square and Chinatown. Hostelworld guests have said this is 'a great hostel to arrive to in Melbourne, especially just getting off of a long flight'. This hostel has clean, bright and airy rooms with high ceilings and our users say they particularly appreciate the 'awesome courtyard with picnic tables/sun loungers/ping-pong table/dart board'. Several travellers tell us they plan to stay here again because 'weekends here are party central'.

Property Information:

Located in a spectacular heritage building, Home @ The Mansion is Melbourne's most striking and friendliest backpackers! Guest can enjoy excellent facilities teamed with the best customer service. With only 96 beds you can be assured a more personal experience provided by staff whom enjoy their job!

Our dorm rooms comprise of 4, 5, 6, 7 & 12 bed rooms. Each room has a big sunny window, very high ceilings with ornate features and of course very comfy beds! For added luxury every room has security lockers and a flat screen t.v.

We only have two private rooms; therefore it's essential to book in advance. Each of these rooms has a nice sunny window, beautiful high ornate ceilings, a double bed, flat screen t.v and clothes rail. These rooms are small and this is reflected in the very reasonable price charged.

There are loads of bathrooms on each floor, some of which are fully self contained with a single toilet, shower and a hand basin in one room.

Our facilities include a communal tv area, kitchen/dining, laundry, bbq area, large outdoor garden, internet access, $3 per hour wifi, luggage storage, tour information and bookings. Enjoy the company of your fellow travellers at our complimentary wine & cheese nights and also our bbq nights.

This is the full package, with an excellent location, friendly and helpful staff and a size small enough to get to know your fellow guests!

Please note that we strictly do not accept guests under the age of 18 unless agreed with hostel management in advance. All guests must provide photo ID upon check in.
Management reserves the right to refuse entry upon arrival.

    We're located in one of Melbourne's most impressive and striking heritage-listed building. Even though the building looks huge, we're one of Melbourne's smaller hostels so guests receive more personal service. We have free wine and cheese nights on Wednesdays and 'Sausage Sizzles' on Sundays on the BBQ. There's also regular social nights out, including bowling, footy nights, fancy dress pub crawls and more, plus free DVD hire, a PlayStation games area and a large, sunny garden complete with picnic tables and sun loungers, right smack in the middle of the city!
    Our location means you can easily walk to many of Melbourne's major attractions such as Chinatown, Queen Victoria Markets, Melbourne Museum and many, many more! The free City Circle tram and tram 96 to St. Kilda beach leave from our doorstep. One of my favourite local areas is Brunswick St; it's literally a short stroll away, where guests can find many funky cafés offering a wide range of cheap meals along with some of the best and most unique shops in Melbourne. Brunswick St is also highly regarded for its pubs and bars, many offering a variety of different live music.

    This was probably the best hostel I stayed in. The staff was excessively friendly and remembered my name, the place was decent and clean, and the other inmates caused no trouble. I would have given you a five star rating if not for the beds. Do something about the beds! I almost pulled the bunk bed over when I first tried climbing it because it was rickety as hell. And even with a burly man sleaping on the bottom bunk it kept wobbling to and fro like a drunken sailer at sea.
