Had a great time here. Matt and the team are helpful if you're looking for work or just chilling for a few weeks as a stop over/ break for party hostels.. There is a knack to perfecting the showers - maximum hot and a nudge of cold! Challenge - get Toby the cat to become your friend. More

It's a very nice house. The owner Matt is super serious about the cleanliness, which is awesome. Most people are open minded which makes a great atmosphere. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen has just one place to cook but somehow it always works out without waiting. Plus Domino's is around More

I've stayed here before and the staff - as always - are brilliant. Was here to do business so a desk for my computer would have been good. I prefer to control my own A/C but they control it it from the front desk and although you can ask them to turn it up or down it because a bit More

We got a very cheap online-deal, great value for money. The hotel is about 20min. walk from the "free tram zone", but here are some very nice restaurants arround the corner. Furniture is outdated, but the room was clean. More

If you like the smell of sewage 24/7, then this establishment is perfect for you. Not only was the sewage smell a constant in the hallway, but also in the rooms; it was a wonderful stench to wake up to. Additionally, the bed sheets felt damp all the time AND upon checkout you have to More

I was really impressed by the cleanliness of this hotel. I liked the drinking water facilities on every level and the private showers. The communal kitchen was large and had great views. It was also quiet - and I stayed on the same floor as the gym. I would stay at The Space hotel More

Loved it. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Staff gave me key to wrong room when I arrived which wasn't fantastic but not a deal breaker :) More

Great staff, enjoyed the stay. Paid for extended check out times though and got woken up multiple times asking why we hadn't checked out yet. But otherwise a great stay. More

Overall, had a great experience but the rooms were pretty dirty. They only did slight vacuuming during the day and the bathrooms had mold growing. Definitely could use a deep cleaning in the rooms and bathrooms. All the bathrooms/showers are in-suite. Staff were friendly overall, and More

The Bendigo hotel was a great place to stay! It's a small place but has a great kitchen and they basically leave you to your own accord, it is easy to get back whenever you want. The location was great, not far from trams and overall a good area. Tiffany and all the staff are super More

I have no complaints with the hostel, great location, all staff are friendly and helpful, the most important thing is that the bathroom is always in a clean conditions. Tired of walking and strolling City?just laid back at the rooftop, and meet a new friend there. More

nice hostel, but too many people who were working, so it wasn't that sociable, because then people don't really talk to the new people More
