Property Description

HI Philadelphia – Chamounix Mansion is a peaceful country setting away from the bustle and noise of the city welcoming guests from across the USA and around the world providing accommodation in a beautiful site for the best price.

In the heart of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, historic award-winning Chamounix Mansion has welcomed guests and groups for over fifty years. Originally built in 1802 as a country home, the mansion rests on a scenic bluff above the Schulykill River, and is less than five miles from Philadelphia's cultural and historic attractions, sporting events and restaurants. 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.

Chamounix (CHAM'-ah-nee) Mansion provides clean, inexpensive accommodations for individuals, families and groups. The handicapped-accessible Carriage House is an ideal facility for group accommodation. The hostel also offers meeting rooms with kitchen/dining areas for workshops, retreats, and events.

    This was our first experience staying at a hostel and it worked well for our family.! We enjoyed the kitchen facility , homey atmosphere and the low cost. We think we are sold on the hostel option for lodging. It made our trip to attend our daughter’s boot camp graduation affordable. Katherine Hutto

    After reading a large portion of the reviews before my daughter and I came I was pretty confident that this hostel was clean, safe, and relatively easy to find. I was right on all three instances. The staff were very accommodating and informative. I will definitely be returning!

    Honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed in! It was super clean, safe, and the staff was be nice. The location is difficult to get to at first (a little bit of a walk from public transportation) but they do offer bikes at the hostel which you can use for the duration of your trip.

    If you want a layed back stay in Philly, this is a good place to consider. It's far from the city center, but still accessible by bus. Usually about an hour depending on where in the city you are. Hostel is closed between 11h-16h30. So you have to leave early every day. That bothered me. Rooms and and facilities are well equipped and clean. There are, however, little critters, which is to expect When in a park. Spiders outside. Inside: millepede and a mouse. AC in rooms was a bit too high
