4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I spent only one night here and I have to say that is probably the best hostel that I have ever experienced: I stayed in a 4 bed rooms which was cosy and comfortable, the toilets are clean and there are many facilities provided such as a big kitchen which looked well accessorized even though I didn't make us of,...

We stayed there in octobre 2014 for 4 nights. We had a big and quiet room on the second floor. The kitchen is big with plenty of equipment and fridges. They say they clean the shared bathrooms 5 times a day... maybe there was a lot of travellers when we were there! Still good! Located in the CDB, easy walk... More

i was really impressed by the cleanliness of the place. the kitchen was enormous and sparkling. great location, very central, but felt it was a bit pricey for the tiny room although it has a big balcony and totally did not expect it to be the backpackers' mecca. sound quality was really bad, i could hear not only people next...

Booked two nights there, this being the first time staying in a hostel. I was amazed by the cleanliness of the hostel. The staff were simply A* at customer service (reception, bar and cleaners), the cleaners worked around the clock to keep the place looking fantastic. Location was it was slightly out of the main city so all the you... More

I was very disappointed with the hotel despite the great ratings on tripadvisor. I understand that Australia is quite expensive, but I expected more for the price I paid. I shared the room with 5 other females and the room was so small that you felt completely claustrophobic. You think European hotel rooms are small, this is even smaller! The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights visiting Melbourne. The hotel is extremely clean, spacious, respectfully quiet at night and has awesome facilities for the price you pay. Staff were so helpful, very friendly and let us use the hotel before and after check out with no problems, and kept our bags safe. The location is practically next... More

I booked a room for 2 nights. The room is clean and nice. The bathrooms are shared therefore it is not perfectly clean but still ok. Internet is not free. The staff is ok. It is not too far from the downtown.

What a fantastic budget hotel and hostel. Stayed in a double room for a night, pleased to find it in great condition, all the fittings looked new, room and ensuite was very clean. The ensuite was huge! Larger than most bathrooms in some "regular" hotels I've stayed in. Conveniently on the edge of Melbourne's CBD and friendly counter staff. Only... More

Space Hotel is conveniently located on Russell Street. It's modern, well-kept and reasonably priced. Rooms include bare essentials, although toilets and showers are communal and located on every floor. Great, budget-friendly restaurants and shops are within walking distance, and Melbourne's theatres are located three blocks south. Space would be perfect for short-stay travellers looking for cheap, centrally-located accommodation. People staying... More

Great stay except for the fact that when I checked in, the staff told me I owed almost $40 more than I really owed. Had to argue with him and ended up proving I was right. Otherwise the staff were really helpful and were always willing to help when I had questions about local attractions or which trams to take.... More
