Hi everybody :-)



Hello and welcome to Home at the Mansion, voted Hostelworld's Most Popular Hostel in Melbourne - 2012, 2013, 2014 & nominated for Best Medium Size Hostel in the world. Incredibly these awards were actually voted for by real backpackers which makes us very proud!


 "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 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. Join in on our Killer Darts competition on Mondays and free Cheese & Wine on Wednesdays. Just show your key at the bar to receive big discounts on drinks at all times!


For a small hostel our facilities pack a big punch including FREE Wi-Fi, communal kitchen, DVD & Playstation areas, laundry, free luggage storage, 24 hour reception and tour information and bookings. All dorm rooms have security lockers and flatscreen tvs!
