We stayed in a room ensuite with bathroom. Room was spaaacious...really....I think you can fit about 25-30 people standing inside. I have no complaints about the room or the bathroom either. Bathroom was also spacious. It's a pity I only stayed for 3days as they were fully booked the days after that and we had to move to another hotel.... More

I have previously stayed at the Space Hotel in a twin bed room. This time, I stayed one night in a twin bed room and another three nights in a four bed dorm. My experience in the twin bed room was exactly the same - which was a fantastic, comfortable stay. I was lucky enough to be placed in a... More

I stayed at the Space Hotel on my way out of Australia to Thailand. I was in the single room, which was quite small, but adequate for my needs. The problem with all of Australia is finding affordable accommodation and this was definitely a splurge for me as I was headed to Thailand and wanted to rest up. The location... More

Booked a room online through what if... Made the mistake of thinking hotel meant you would at least have your own toilet in your room ! Everything is communal ! The rooms are tiny & not well ventilated. Very expensive for what you get ! Stayed at better back packers ! It was that bad I didn't even stay. I... More

We stayed in the executive queen room which was quite expensive and we could've stayed in a serviced apartment for the same price. Although this is a very nice hostel, retrospectively, I don't think it was right for us. But if you're looking for a nice hostel to stay in, this place is very nice. It is clean and the... More

A group of 6 of us shared a dorm room and were really impressed. Great value, nice clean room and showers, serviceable gym, free coffee, great location etc etc. We didn't use the kitchens, cinema or rooftop pool but I'm sure they were also great. I've stayed in hostels all ove the world and this is one of the best.

This is (almost) state of the art and I can recommend it: modern, clean, simple and relatively quiet. Great shared bathrooms, acceptable inhouse bar with good music. Good staff is difficult to find, some staff could need a bit more training. One other thing: compared to the rest of the world I cannot understand why to pay for poor, slow... More

The attitude of the woman on the front desk was just appalling, surly and arrogant. Room has degraded significantly since I was here last, Internet is not free and the condition of the share bathrooms is simply disgusting. The noise from the bar downstairs is terrible so you need earplugs if you need any sleep.

The Space hotel is a great place to stay with friendly staff they make you feel welcome as soon as you step in the door. The 24 hour cinema was great. Everything was really clean. The rooftop spa just tops it off.
