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

I was so relieved to find this hostel after trying a few out in Melbourne beforehand! Stayed here for 5 weeks and don't have one bad thing to say about the place. 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

It was clean and was a at a really good spot (close to cbd) I did get a private room and my only complaint was our room was facing a busy street and all I could hear was cars honking and the...

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 :-)

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.

This is a nice little hostel that's easy to get to by tram from Southern Cross without being too enough away from the CBD. Queen Victoria markets are a short walk away as well which is handy. It's quite close to bars & eateries in Brunswick St a short walk or tram ride away, which I took advantage of when... More
