This is such a cool hotel!! We stayed for just under a week and loved it. Great rooms, great facilities and very helpful staff. Location is good too, very show walk and you are at the top end of the city centre with the mall and everything right there. Also a great bar/restaurant joined on with a mean chicken parmy... More

If you want an affordable, clean and friendly place to stay able visiting Melbourne then Space Hotel is the place to stay. Cheaper than most traditional hotels and is a bit more expensive than the usual low budget hostels. So I found this to be ideal for me. I was travelling with my girlfriend and we stayed in most of...

I have held off with this review as I wanted to experience all types of hostels before making a review. After experiencing both good and bad hostels this is by far the best hostel I have stayed in whilst been in Australia. It accommodates for all your average back packers, people who want a cheap night to stay (say for... More

We stayed here two times, even in 6 beds room and private one. Both was a very decent room to stay. Very neat and clean. Not much to say but a very recommend for a travelers. The kitchen is quite big even during dinner time, and there is jacuzzi pool on the rooftop. Very nice 4 days experience with space.

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
