We emailed to inform them, also wrote it in the booking comments section AND confirmed the day before by phone. However when we got there they said even though we had confirmation by phone... More

Hello Elisa, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I would firstly like to apologize as it seems there may have been some miscommunication between our reception team and yourself . Early check in is not something as a hotel that we offer or advertise to our guests this is always subject to availability on the day... More

We stayed here for a week and loved the place. The hotel staff were very friendly to the point that on my first night I arrived late and found my room above the bar (it was karaoke night, therefore quite loud!) I asked the receptionist how long it would continue for, and he quickly offered me another room for the... More

This is my 3rd stay at Space Hotel, and still nothing to complain about! Located between the CBD and Carlton makes this a great place to base yourself to see what Melbourne has to offer. Great atmosphere, definitely recommend that you check out the Blue Moon Bar attached to the hostel, there is usually something going on every night and... More

A great place to stay, good views from the balcony. I had the queen ensuite room on level 4, there is no view from this room as it looks out to part of the building. Kitchen facilities are good and there is a gym, book room and a movie room on the different levels. Check in and checkout was smooth.

I stayed here for about 10 nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms facing the city had really cool views, especially the private room with balcony which was on the 5th floor I believe. Some of the staff was great, including a couple of them at the front desk and the night security guard was very friendly. One of the... More

One of the better hostels in Australia but also one of the more expensive. It has a great central location. The room (4 bed semi private dorm) was good, plenty of storage space. There are individual lights and sideboard next to each bed. Light enough to read in bed whilst not disturbing anyone else. Unfortunately my bed was next to... More
