This place was pretty cool. I found it reasonably priced for a backpackers in Melbourne CBD. Near enough to all the public transport needs and attractions. It was a great place to base ourselves for exploring the winding lanes and alleys of the CBD. On arrival we received a voucher for a free coffee at the cafe outside the backpackers.... More

It was a cool location and the staff was friendly.The kithchen was ok and the rooms and bathsrooms were clean. But it was not good to meet people there, but this depents on the people and not the hostel. But...there were no real room, except of the small kitchen where u really can hang out with other people

All of the staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, the hostel is the cleanest I've ever seen anywhere and the overall vibe is wicked...the bar downstairs is a... More

This was the best hostel I've stayed at since traveling! The staff are super friendly, and they clean everyday!! The bathrooms are private rooms which are a treat for a backpacker! The building itself is beyond charming and located next to the free tram zone. The only downside was paying for internet. Overall, I had such a pleasant time, I... More

Home@mansion is within the free tram zone in Melbourne, easy to reach and commute around town. You would need a myki card only if u cross farther into town. The staff were always helpful and ready to provide tips of events and travel advise around melbourne. Melbourne Cricket Ground can be easily reached thru public transport.

We stayed in this Hostel for weeks and it really feels like a home! It's a great Hostel with good atmosphere, a central location, which makes it very easy to get around in the City. People are nice and it has the best staff ever! We can only recommend it :-)

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for about 2 months and loved every second. From rich and the staff always nice and helpful, always smiling. The rooms , bathrooms and kitchen always clean and tidy. Made some good friends as there are a lot of social areas. The bar was amazing value and loved killer darts on a Monday night.... More

Staff was friendly, price for a backpackers clearly above average, accommodation itself isnt tho. Quite noisy, in fact with the backpackers being on a major road, incl tram, and across from a hospital. Very clean tho and I liked their bar with LC on tap. However, if you are after good sleep, I wouldnt recommend it.
