I've stayed in some amazing hostels in my years of travelling through Europe and Australia and I can safely say this is the NOT one of them. Space Hotel (hotel, really? lol) is terrible. They promote themselves as a luxury hostel or poshtel which just makes me laugh bahahaha. I usually don't write reviews unless I feel something is a... More

There's lots of great things to say about this hostel. Beds (I stayed in a bunk) were comfy and sturdy. I could feel it when the guy above me moved, but only minimally. Lockers provided with good security. There were female dorms and mixed dorms. I was in the mixed dorm and it was just fine. Bathrooms were individual in... More

I went there with 5 friends and we were very well treated by the staff. We had a bad experience there with 3 English friends that used to talk loud late at night, but we changed rooms and everything after that was fine. The place is clean, the temperature is comfortable and the service is perfect. Furthermore, the price is... More

This was a hotel to just stay in after I arrived from my 26 hour flight, It was clean and tidy, the kitchen areas were ok, and they look after your luggage if you need to hang around . The bathrooms were ok but its not ensuite. Shower was reasonably good. I dont remember being upset about it.

Overall, the Space Hotel is modern, very clean, conveniently located near the Melbourne CBD and the great Carlton / Italian district. There's a movie room, full-on professional kitchen, and helpful staff. The only problem we had was on karaoke night because we were on the 2nd floor right over the nightclub / bar and the hotel was full, so we... More

I purchased this hotel for 4 nights because it was the only one for around $200 AUD in the CBD. Important: - This is not a hotel, it's a hostel. So while the price seems the cheapest for a Melbourne, it's an expensive hostel. - I got the single room with shared facilities. There is no bathroom, shower, toilet, fridge... More

The space hotel is a beautifully kept hotel. For a little bit more money you get a lot more than other hostels/hotels. The rooms and public areas are newly renovated and kept exceptionally clean. Upon my arrival I was happily upgraded without asking from a double room to a double room with ensuite and balcony. We only stayed for two... More

Efficient, clean, modern. Good location at the top if Russell Street within easy walking around CBD. Although it attracts a younger backpacker crowd there are several private rooms with either private or shared bathrooms. I had a double bed with shared bathroom, toilets and showers were always available. Great view of the city and the rooftop garden is a plus!... More
