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?.

The hostel was so cool and very well set up. Everyone was respectful and it felt very safe. The building is clearly very old so some cracks and imperfections but overall it was well maintained and clean. We had an absolute blast and you honestly cannot beat the location- convenient to everything.

Not very social. A bit outdated and not as clean. Spent one night.

Very helpful and great staff overall. Perfect location, right by the CBD but much quieter. Good atmosphere, you can chill and do work but it was easy to meet people and make plans. Of all the hostels I stayed at in Melbourne, this was my favourite. Would recommend.

The Mansion Melbourne says

Siamo situati in uno dei più imponenti e suggestivi edifici di interesse storico culturale di Melbourne. Anche se l\'edificio sembra enorme, siamo uno degli ostelli di Melbourne più piccoli, così che gli ospiti ricevono un servizio personalizzato. Organizziamo serate con vini e formaggi il mercoledì e barbecue con \'Salsiccia sfrigolante\' la domenica. Organizziamo anche serate sociali, tra cui bowling , calcio, giro dei pub con travestimenti e altre, oltre al noleggio gratuito di DVD, una zona giochi per PlayStation e un ampio giardino soleggiato completo di tavoli da picnic e sedie a sdraio, proprio nel bel mezzo della città ! La nostra posizione vi permette di raggiungere facilmente a piedi molte delle principali attrazioni di Melbourne come Chinatown, Queen Victoria Markets , il Museo di Melbourne e molti altri! I tram gratuiti City Circle e 96 che portano alla spiaggia di St. Kilda partono dalla nostra porta di casa . Uno dei miei territori preferiti è Brunswick St : è letteralmente a pochi passi di distanza, dove gli ospiti possono trovare numerosi bar stravaganti che offrono una vasta gamma di piatti a basso costo e alcuni dei più esclusivi negozi di Melbourne . Brunswick St è inoltre molto apprezzato per i suoi pub e bar che offrono una varietà di musica dal vivo.
