We loved this place. We had an ensuite room. Bathroom was big! Bed was good. Plenty of room. Enjoyed blue moon bar. Staff lovely and late checkout was not a problem. We would stay here again and it is definitely value for money.

This was a surprise in finding such a gr8 place to stay, the accommodation is clean and comfortable. Everything is new, the kitchen facilities would satisfy Master Chef, the bar with a pool table is relaxing. I'm approaching 68yrs and at no time did I feel that I was excluded from the other young folk from around the globe. TERRIFIC... More

I stayed at the Space Hotel while attending a large conference in Melbourne. My room was booked by the conference and I was pretty nervous when I found out that my room did not have an ensuite bathroom. I am in my late 30's so its been a long time since I have lived in a dorm setting. There were... More

After staying at a budget backpackers hostel prior to coming here, I was very satisfied. Great private bathrooms with showers and relatively clean all the time. Didnt really have a huge social vibe when I was there but still had a good time.

I visited Melbourne on a busy weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see the Space Hotel offering affordable accommodation for the weekend. This was my second time to the hotel - And it is perfectly fine if you're happy with basic and affordable accommodation with shared bathrooms. The entire hotel was spotlessly clean, reception staff were delightful. My only complaint... More

Lets face it, this isn't the Ritz Carlton, leave your expectations at the door, you do fine. Well managed overall, except for the occasional poor service attitude from the reception, you get what you pay for. However, I would recommend it to anyone who only need a clean bed, shower and nothing else.

I stayed here twice as it is close to city center. Stayed once in the single room which was as good as any hotel room with tv and spacious room. Second time stayed in the 4 bed dorm, which was bit cramped. Overall hostel is very clean, modern and has all the facilities that is needed. Large kitchen and dining... More

Space Hotel is a great family option with family rooms with ensuite, double bed and bunks. It is flash packing rather than a traditional hotel, but facilities are several steps up over most hostels. We had ample towels replaced daily and toiletries provided. We loved the rooftop spa on a cold winters night with views over the city. The location... More

I was so surprised and in love with their modern interior designed. Best price and best location. Near to city area and it was like 5 mins walk. There is free city circle tram station and Old Melbourne Gaol at the opposite of the hotel. Shared bathroom is clean and the staffs are friendly as well. The bed is comfortable... More

I often stay here when I need to get to work early due to it's excellent location. I have stayed in the dorm rooms (4 to 8 beds), the single room, and the queen room with ensuite. No matter which room I have stayed in, it is reliably clean, the linen is fresh, the mattress is comfortable. I recommend this... More
