I stayed here for one night and thought it was a good price for what you get. However i had to sleep top bunk and the ceilings are really low! Just preference for me but found it a little bit of a walk to get onto the main street in the city. Clean bathrooms and friendly staff. Definately one of... More

You could spend a day at this place, or 6 months. It's a true true hostel, but clean and felt safe. That's why its just a bit pricier than other hostels. In reality, it's a cheaper hotel room with bathrooms on the outside of the room. Never had to wait for a shower or bathroom. There is a giant kitchen... More

Stayed here late last year in an 8 bed dorm, it's close, the staff are great and you have your own keycard so there's no curfew. You're within walking distance of the Victoria markets and Melbourne Central so there's any number of places close by to eat and Melbourne's transport network is excellent.

Short weekend stay in Melbourne. Very close to city center and trams in the free tram zone. Different type of hostel, much cleaner and organized. Bathrooms are single rooms that contain a shower and are cleaned 5 times daily. Blue Moon Bar was average hostel bar. Would stay here again. Great for those on a budget who are looking for... More

Stayed 4 nights in the Spacel Hotel in a 4 bed mixed dorm. The Hotel is very clean and the interior design is amazing. Even tough the room was a bit small, they set them up very smart. Every bed has its own energy plugs and storage compartment. There is a cinema in the hotel. Of course it's free... My... More

I have stayed here a few times with my friends while spending a night in the city as were from while away. Getting rooms that accommodate around 6 or so people wasn't too bad at all! for the price.

The Space Hotel is a new style of budget hotel, it has a 'youthful hostel' feel but is cleaner, tidier and more organised than most hostels yet isn't quite a full on hotel. I stayed at short notice and was happy with the set up for price. I had a single bed room with shared bathroom which was fine as... More

This is an old building so expect some things to not be perfect. There is a ramp for access but it is steep!! Or ask one of the staff to work the lift, they will prefere to just push you up the ramp but tell them you need to use the lift. You can book accessible rooms or you can... More

We stayed here for a week and loved the place. The hotel staff were very friendly to the point that on my first night I arrived late and found my room above the bar (it was karaoke night, therefore quite loud!)
