Chamounix Mansion is easy to reach by public transportation, car and bicycle. The Hostel is convenient to Philadelphia's cultural and historic attractions, sporting events, and restaurants.

Plenty of free parking is available with ample parking space for buses.

Chamounix Mansion has an interesting history. Originally built in 1802 as a private residence, the mansion rests on a scenic bluff above the Schuylkill River.

Acquired by the city in 1876, Chamounix Mansion was fully restored in 1964 as an international hostel and community center.
