Went with my girlfriend and stayed in a double room. Fairly basic but had everything you need really; comfy bed, iphone docking station in the room, clean bathrooms etc. The best bit about the hotel was the staff. They were always extremely helpful. One staff member gave us his season ticket to a footy game and got us another free... More

For the third, or fourth... or fifth time, I stayed at Space Hotel again during my recent weekend getaway to Melbourne. This time around I got to experience their twin room and boy was I happy with it. Not overly spacious, the room was clean and neat. It was on the same floor as the movie space so if any... More

Friendly, helpful staff. The hotel was spotless with great facilities, the kitchen was large and spacious with plenty of places to sit. I asked for a quiet room, and it was. Beds were comfortable and the tv and docking station were great touches. Would definitely stay there again, great value for money and well located.

As a backpacker hotel, this hotel is considered quite clean. They do provide cutlery (need $20 deposit). With no doubt, it is located at very great location. It has free shuttle tram near by, just few minutes walking distance away.

I have stayed here over 10 times…. At first I was reasonably happy with space hotel, the rooms look modern and had most of the basic things you would expect for the price.... My extreme dissatisfaction with this venue comes from subsequent stays. On my second, third and sixth stay at space, the Receptionist demented extra money to the amount... More

The hotel was very nice, the facilities are awesome, I really enjoyed the cinema :) however the entire place smelled like the inside of a gym, as soon as I got in my room the smell of body Odour and sweat was so strong I had to leave. The cinema still smelled but was tolerable... Basically the place is really... More

We got a private room there. Really good experience. Nice and big kitchen area, amazing rooftop with a really good view, close to everything and helpful staff. Not bad at all! It was good to have a bar downstairs also.
