MAY/ JUNE *FREE WIFI IN ALL ROOMS & COMMUNAL AREAS!!!!!!*

Located in a spectacular heritage building, Home @ The Mansion is Melbourne's most striking and friendliest backpackers! Guest can enjoy excellent facilities teamed with the best customer service. With only 96 beds you can be assured a more personal experience provided by staff whom enjoy their job!

Our dorm rooms comprise of 4, 5, 6, 7 & 12 bed rooms. Each room has a big sunny window, very high ceilings with ornate features and of course very comfy beds! For added luxury every room has security lockers and a flat screen t.v.

We only have two private rooms; therefore it's essential to book in advance. Each of these rooms has a nice sunny window, beautiful high ornate ceilings, a double bed, flat screen t.v and clothes rail. These rooms are small and this is reflected in the very reasonable price charged.

There are loads of bathrooms on each floor, some of which are fully self contained with a single toilet, shower and a hand basin in one room.

Our facilities include FREE WIFI (MAY/JUNE), communal TV area, kitchen/dining, laundry, luggage storage, tour information and bookings. Enjoy the company of your fellow travellers in our awesome new bar for Wine & Cheese. Killer Darts and some of the cheapest drinks specials in Melbourne!

This is the full package, with an excellent location, friendly and helpful staff and a size small enough to get to know your fellow guests!

Please note that we strictly do not accept guests under the age of 18 unless agreed with hostel management in advance. All guests must provide photo ID upon check in.
Management reserves the right to refuse entry upon arrival.

From Tullamarine airport:

The Skybus does not have to be booked in advance and will normally be waiting outside the airport. It runs approximately every 10 minutes in the day and every 30 minutes in the very early hours. It will take you from the airport to Southern Cross Station. Your driver can arrange a free transfer from Southern Cross to the hostel: Free Courtesy shuttle runs Monday- Friday 6am – 10.30pm & Saturday, Sunday 7.30am – 5.30pm. (approximately $18)

If the Skybus courtesy shuttle is not available from Southern Cross, tram 96 (towards East Brunswick) or tram 86 (towards Bundoora) from outside the station will take you to stop 11 on Nicholson St (opposite St. Vincent's Hospital). We are only 20 meters up Victoria Parade from the tram stop. DO NOT get 86 (towards Docklands) or 96 (towards St Kilda Beach) as they will take you in the opposite direction. All trams WITHIN Melbourne CBD (just the CBD) are free and you do not require a MYKI card to use them.


A taxi direct from Tullamarine to the hostel will cost approximately $60.

From Avalon: 
Take the Sunbus to Southern Cross Station and proceed as above. From St.Kilda: 
Take tram 96 and jump off on Nicholson St as above.
