If you thought city life meant hustle and bustle with nowhere to relax, think again. Home at the Mansion is sandwiched between the beautiful Carlton and Fitzroy gardens. Chill out with a book, take a picnic hamper and have an enjoyable glass of Goon! If you’re feeling active you can always grab the hostel cricket set or football!
Situated only a few minutes walk from Home @ The Mansion , the museum and Imax theatre offer excellent entertainment (and education!) for a very low cost! Visit victoria.com.au and to see what's on when you're at home.
Only 5 minutes walk from the hostel, the bright lights of Chinatown offer a vibrant atmosphere and awesome food, with a host of different places to eat and drink at any time of day or night!
Museum & Imax Theatre
Is this the best location in Melbourne? ........ Definitley!
There are simply too many attractions to list that are within easy walking distance or very short tram ride from the hostel!!! Being so close to the city center many of Melbournes main attractions are literally just round the corner. These include but are certainly not limited to: Old Melbourne Gaol, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Immigration Museum, Docklands, Lygon St and much, much more!
If you were after one area of Melbourne that best reflects the city's soul, it could well be Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Brunswick Street is art with a capital A; the people who live here ooze art. It's the best selection of small, unpretentious cafes serving tasty food of any food precinct in Melbourne. You could spend a lifetime in Brunswick Street and not once be bored.
