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'.

**NOW FREE WI-FI** Voted Most Popular Hostel in Melbourne - 2012, 2013, 2014 & nominated for Best Medium Size Hostel in the world!

'Located within a grand, heritage building, this is one of Melbourne's few hostels with genuine character” says the Lonely Planet. Situated right next to Brunswick St, the free city circle tram-line, Carlton Gardens and just minutes from China Town, Federation Square and the MCG you won't find a better spot!

We pride ourselves on being Melbourne's friendliest hostel and with just 16 rooms and 94 beds we offer a more personal experience. If you are a lone traveller our brand new cafe bar Victoria's Secret is the perfect place to meet fellow travellers.

This is not a normal hostel, this is The Mansion..most importantly…..the BEST staff in Melbourne!!!!!!

    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.

    Great value for money. Staff was super friendly, always willing to help. Rooms were fine, awful matrasses though. Overall the hostel was clean. Kitchen was a little to small for all the guests to be able to cook. Wifi didn't have connection everywhere and wasn't accessible at peak hours.
