I've stayed here 3 times now. Someone coming here thinking they were booked into a 'hotel' would be surprised or disappointed as most of the rooms have shared bathrooms. This, along with the communal kitchen and the dynamic of the guests makes this establishment feel much more of a hostel or 'flash-packers' than hotel. Most recently, the cleanliness seems to have improved. The kitchen is superb but I fail to see why in the 21st century a property such as this cannot offer complimentary wifi. The cheapest motel in the US and Canada has free wifi; when challenged, the response that "most Melbourne accommodations charge for internet access" is not acceptable - maybe 'Space' could take some pride in being a trend setter rather than just seeking a better bottom line. $10/day is excessive and just unnecessary. Come on 'Space', be a leader rather than a follower.
