Very unique place to stay, helpful staff, private washrooms with showers, coupons for a free drink per person and good location. Downside is that there is no elevator if you are on the top floor and have a lot of luggage. Building is older, but well kept. No A/C, but fans in the rooms. Blinds didn't go down all the way but not a big deal. Private room came with mounted TV which was a nice extra.

The staff was extremely hospital and knowledgeable about the area. When I was alone in the bar outside one of the staff members, richard, introduced me to his friends and made me feel welcomed. All around great hostel! Check it out!

On the edge of the city, still close to the free trams. Staff are nice. Cleanliness is lacking in some areas. No free Wifi. Fan in room but it was still pretty hot.

Waaaaaaay overpriced double room - little bed with worn sheets and no locker. Bunks looked ok for average price. Bathrooms clean and nice.

There was a lot I liked about this hostel. The atmosphere beat the hell out of the other one I tried in Melbourne. The bar, though not great, is a good place to meet people (their coffee in the morning sucks though). However, I cannot recommend the Mansion because of their RIDICULOUS internet policy. It costs $3 per HOUR! Even $3 per day is a bit steep, but per hour is unacceptable. If the internet setup was changed, I would definitely stay there again, but it's a deal breaker.

Spacious hostel in a unique, old mansion between the CBD and Fitzroy. Laidback atmosphere with a nice bar. The outside patio is great common area, although the indoor common areas are a bit awkward. Virtually no power outlets or working spaces outside of rooms. The occasional events seem like a complete afterthought.

this is a great hostel, right in a perfect location to explore Melbourne, though the block it actually sits on doesn't have much, its easy to access a few excellent parts of town. the staff and other patrons were really down to earth and easygoing. also, the building is amazing - huge plus to be able to stay in that sort of historic structure! very clean - love the private bathrooms available and the kitchen. the only downfall is that you have to pay for internet, but if that's the only thing...

Really nice and clean hostel close to the center of Melbourne. You can easily reach all the hot spots of the city by foot. The hostel itself is in a very good shape. The bathrooms are single ones but so big other hostels would put two or three in it. And as bonus, like everything else in the hostel, they are very clean. I can totally recommend everybody to stay here when visiting Melbourne!

Probably the best location for a hostel in Melbourne, right on the edge of CBD and Fitzroy. Great Atmosphere, not too crowded. And a couple of beautiful girls working reception!

The place could do with a bit of a facelift and our private room felt like a pay by the hour kinda place, which surprised us given the great reviews. But the bathrooms were spacious and there seemed to be a good atmosphere for those who were looking for that. We appreciated the peace and quiet on the top floor. The bar downstairs is great and really makes the place.
