Very nice backpackers. Clean and modern. The girls dorm was comfortable enough. There is a plug next to your bed to charge electronics. There is also a locker and a light next to your bed. Bathrooms are single stall, and there was 4 on the floor I stayed at. They clean pretty often I heard, but if you're going to... More

Space is a great hostel in a great location. I stayed in a twin room and it was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was clean and spacious and the roof terrace was a real nice addition (there's a hot tub up there!). The highlight for me as someone who has stayed in quite a few hostels is the separate WC/Shower... More

This was probably one of the nicest hostel/hotels I have been to with a nice kitchen that was actually clean which is incredibly rare for most places I've stayed at. Only downside was that it was a $20 deposit for cutlery that could only be paid by cash, which is understandable with the amount of things that have gone missing... More

Overall the facilities were clean and well organised. The reception staff was also very helpful. The hotel is located close to the city center and the next tram sop is within the free-tram zone so you save money for public transport. In our room the climate control was not sufficient. Either it got really hot or freezing cold. While having... More

I'm a little hesitant to write such a great review for Space Hotel - the secret will get out and I won't be able to stay there any more as it will be booked out!

I stayed in a 6bed dorm for 3 nights. The rooms are pretty big and there's a big locker for all of your stuff (my whole backpack could fit in there), also a personal light, which was very nice. It's very clean (they clean 5 times a day), but if they are cleaning at your floor you have to use... More
