Finding a reasonably priced and nice hostel in Melbourne was challenging. Space hotel was a great option and I'm glad I stayed here (even though it takes some getting used to the cost of travelling in Australia). This was one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in and if there were ensuite bathrooms I would probably say it is closer to a hotel.
We stayed in a double room, yes it was small but it has everything you need a a flatscreen TV for comfort! The only thing is that the windows don't open so you don't have any fresh air getting in, just AC. The room itself, and the hostel in general, is immaculately clean. Room included AC, TV, storage and towels. There are a number of bathrooms and showers on each floor as well.
As mentioned by many other reviewers, SPACE has a lot of facilities. There is a bar downstairs that usually have some drink/dinner offer on. There are lots of computers and wifi, although I have to agree with others that these are incredibly overpriced. We did not bother using internet here at all. They have laundry facilities, storage facilities, viewing deck, a modern kitchen, tea making facilities on each floor - I really think they provide a great service for travelers. I also found the staff to be very helpful in suggesting what to do in Melbourne and providing me with information on the area. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
