I stayed in both a six-bed room and an eight-bed room over a four week period. One of the biggest things that draws me was it's affordability especially if you are on a budget. It is a part hostel-part hotel and you do have some options. With a four, six and eight bed room, you do sacrifice some privacy, but... More

When is a backpackers not a backpackers? When it is the Space Hotel in Melbourne. My wife and I stayed there for 4 night Oct. 12-15 2014. We chose a room with queen sized bed and small en-suite. We were not disappointed and it met all our expectations and at 73 and 72 years old we were probably one of... More

Stayed in this hostel for two weeks. It is the cleanest hostel I have ever been to! I would venture to say cleaner than some hotels I've been to! The staff were great. The kitchen can get too dirty sometimes, but I'm sure you can ask for it to be cleaned more often. With like 8 floors, each floor has... More

The Queen Ensuite bedroom that my friend and I stayed in was quite small. If we had to retrieve anything from our luggages, it got to be laid flat on the floor and this limits the walking space in the room. The bathroom cum toilet is big and we really wished that some of that space could be transferred to... More

I stayed in a 4-bed dorm (which was really a 3-bed dorm). Facilities were very clean. The rooms have cupboards (with a space for you to put your own lock), and there are also safety-deposit boxes available, unlike many hostels. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good - close to Melbourne Central railway station and many attractions like the... More

This is a perfect located hostel and hotel. The rooftop and all amenities are great. I found the staff not too friendly, didn't want to talk that much and just give you the key. The price is ok. I was in a 6girls room, the one I had was very very small. The cleaning is enough but you should do... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and it has always been great. We always stay in a private double room with a shared bathroom. There are plenty of bathrooms so that's not a problem. Can't complain about anything. The common spaces are good and the location is fantastic. You can walk and enjoy Melbourne.

If your looking for a centrally placed hostel which is nice and friendly to stay at in Melbourne, then this is the place. I stayed at Space for a number of months whilst working in Melbourne and it was the best Hostel/Hotel around for the price. Yes you pay a bit more than you would at other hostels but you... More

Being a lone traveler I was hoping for a great friendly hostel. This place is more of a hotel. It's very clean and modern but If you're hoping for party and to make a load of mates this place isn't for you. 0 atmosphere. The wifi is quite expensive too.. $20 a week. Plus you have to pay for your... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Space Hotel offers personal sets of dishes and cutlery at reception for guests to use. These sets are given out for free but require a refundable deposit so that they get returned to reception. Internet in Australia is highly competitive and overly priced. At Space Hotel, having...

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
