This hostel is perfect as holiday accomodation as well as for staying for longer. The kitchen is big enough for 10 people cooking at the same time and is equipped with everything you need. All facilities and rooms are very clean, there´s enough space to store your belongings. Melbourne´s city centre is just a few minutes walk away and the free City Circle Tram stops one block away. If we´ll come back to Melbourne we´ll stay there again.

it would be better if the bathroom & toilet can be kept drier & cleaner.

I really enjoyed my stay at Space Hotel. The roof top space is awesome though it would be nice if it was open at night to enjoy the night skyline. The room had an air conditioner which was a godsend in the 40 C heat! My only issue was front desk staff and cleaning staff both entering the dorm room while I was in there with out so much as knocking or saying who they were or why the were entering. Granted I was in a 4 bedroom dorm there isn't heaps of privacy but you expect other guests not staff.

Space Hotel is like staying in a hotel, TV in room and a very comfy bed! Shared bathrooms are clean with great showers. Staff seemed a little stressed out whenever I went past reception. Facilities are great here though. Nice quiet place to stay, if you're not staying next to loud French partying friends at 4AM who are in the opposite room -_-

A nice hostel in a calm part of Melbourne but close to everything. The room was really nice but the toilets/showers felt like a public bathroom... We arrived late and only stayed one night so can't really do a more in depth review.

Stayed here for 10days including over Christmas, not a bad hostel, very clean. Only downside is the staff that work on reception. There was a certain girl who was very rude and would act as if she couldn't be bothered to do her job. Also passed rude comments with no manners. Really think they should employ helpful people on reception.

The hostel was very clean, the showers and bathrooms were clean and plentiful as single rooms. There was a very large kitchen, utensils you can borrow for a deposit, and a TV room. They provide great lockers and a shelf with individual power outlets for each bed which is the best thing you will find. They even give you a towel. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. FYI: They do put one girl with 3 guys in a mixed room. They do have a variety of ages in the hostel.

Great location for city sights. The twin corner room was nice and good size, however one of my pillow cases when i turned it over had heaps of makeup marks and mascara on it- likely from the previous guest. This was a bit unsettling as made me wonder if the cleaners had cut corners elsewhere- were my sheets a new set?? Most of staff seemed nice except for one darker larger kiwi lady. Made us feel extremely unwelcome and like us staying there was a big inconvenience to her. STAY AT THE NUNNERY!

The bathrooms are all individual, which is nice. Your own toilet and shower. But they are all stainless steel which makes them feel really cold and they get dirty very quickly. Or they just look dirty all of the time because stainless steel shows everything. I saw staff cleaning the bathrooms frequently which was great but then they were always wet. I think they just literally hose the whole room down. No real restaurant on premise. And the bar is not open til 5. Never made it there.

Great hostel. Nothing bad to say about it.

A little bit expensive but it has all traveler needs. Except free wifi. I don't understand this. If you have net connection over whole hotel why not to make this one free for your guests? :)

Always clean apart from the toilets, occasionally would be like a festival toilet! Other than that great hostel, tours are amazing, they definitely know what they are talking about with them. Only downside is no one really speaks here, everyone just sticks to who they know so not an outgoing hostel generally, but Melbourne doesn't have many like that, if any.

The only draw back to this hostel is the bathrooms. Not always as clean as they could be. But everything else was spot on!
