Located in a spectacular heritage building, Home @ The Mansion is Melbourne's newest and most striking backpackers! With a completely new fitout, guests can enjoy brand new facilities teamed with the best customer service! With only 95 beds you can be assured a more personal experience provided by staff whom enjoy their job!

*Wi-Fi $3 Per Hour*

Our dorm rooms comprise of 4, 5, 6, 7, and 12 bed rooms. Each room has a big sunny window, very high ceilings with beautiful ornate features and of course all have brand new beds, mattresses and linen.

There are spanking new bathrooms on each floor some of which are fully self contained ie a single toilet, shower and hand basin in one room. Some dorms have the added bonus of a hand basin in the room and the 12 bed dorm has its own toilet and hand basin.

We only have 2 private rooms, therefore it is essential to book in advance! Each of these rooms has a nice sunny window, high ceilings with beautiful ornate ceilings, a double bed, tv, and clothes rail.
These rooms are small and this is reflected in the very reasonable price charged!

Our facilities include a communal tv room/kitchen, laundry, bbq area, big sunny garden, internet access, $2 per hour wifi, luggage storage, tour information and bookings. Enjoy the company of your fellow travellers at our complimentary 'Wine & Cheese Night' and our 'BBQ Nights'.
Home @ The Mansion is the full package, excellent location with brand new facilities and furnishings, friendly and helpful staff and small enough to get to know fellow guests.
