I paid $160 for a double room. It was an extremely small room, the floor boards squeaked, the walls had cracks, the TV didnt work, there was no air con, apart from a fan I had to plug in. I could constantly hear people walking around outside from the noisy floorboards. Ideal for your typical backpacker who just wants a place to crash, but not for me.!

It was a nice stay. Not as clean as I thought it would be but it wasn't bad. Felt more like staying at a college dorm. Wish lockers could be bigger.

Very nice building and for the most part very nice staff. Wayyyy too warm at night though, no AC just a single fan which isn't enough. Staff lets you stay up late and drink inside which is a plus, and the showers were really clean! Overall if they added some AC this would be a top notch hostel, but I went in Summer so I'm sure it's fine in winter. Oh yeah and location isn't the best, 15-20 minute walk to the CBD. Also REALLLY expensive wifi ($3 for an hour) which is just ridiculous

Really enjoyed my stay at the Mansion, was a well setup clean Hostel. Staff are friendly and accommodating with good knowledge and plenty of enthusiasm. This hostel is a minutes walk to Parliment train station - which was a huge bouns. So far it has been the cleanest Hostel I have experienced in Melbourne, offers mulitple areas to relax inside and out of the building.

TV's everywhere. It's bad enough that travellers are staring at their phones at the breakfast table, do you really need a TV blaring all day? Get some music in the dining room, it would be a lot more social.

It is such a nice and clean hostel. No any hesitation faced in the hostel. The only issue is NO AIR CONDITION in the rooms... If the weather gets hot, unfortunately only u have a small size of fan for 6 people in the rooms. No Free Wi-Fi available also priced internet is expensive and very short time limited. Would be great if they have a car parking space. Its quite annoying to park your car outside... As a result I would give 7 of 10

This is a good hostel to stay in if you want to be in the Fitzroy area as you're still within walking distance to the CBD. Staff were friendly and helpful. Quite a few long term residents but you didn't feel unwelcome. Generally clean and comfortable.

We stayed at Home at the Mansion on and off for a few weeks while we travel along Victoria and it's been, every time, a great stay. The atmosphere is always friendly and the staff is quite amazing, specially Richard and Ben who helped us in a tight spot.
