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 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

I stayed one night in a private queen room, and 13 nights in a 6 bed female dorm. The queen room was really nice and the bed super comfy. The dorm was great with big comfy bunk beds and a huge locker for every person (my backpack could easily fit into the locker, and there was still plenty of room... More

I do advise you to choose the Space hotel. It is cheap if you book on line via such websites like ebookers.fr. It costed me 20 euros per night... The hostel is super clean, brand new, very well located from Aldi supermarket, the Imax cinema, the Melbourne museum, the city center and from the train and tram stations. It doesn't... More

This hostel is brilliant- We stayed in dorms so I say hostel however it really is hotel worthy. It has everything you need. We were meant to stay for two days and move, but we extended twice and ended up here for 10. The kitchen is top class, and as a backpacker having an actual oven (that cooks well) is... More
