Great location in the CBD, within walking distance of a train station, and always a go-to stay for me when I go to Melbourne.

5 out of 5

awesome hostel, clean, friendly, modern, close

Pros: Cleanliness, friendliness, proximity to CBD, heating was great
Cons: nothing, really. for $35/night, this place is mint!
Location: On my first night, I went to the Catfish for dinner and a beer (awesome!) in Fitzroy nearby. Anything else is closeby in the CBD also.
For my first time in Melbourne, I'm glad that I chose to stay at Space Hotel. It's so close to the CBD and Fitzroy where there are heaps of things to do day and night, so walking distance to most good places. I went to Above & Beyond's concert at HiSense Arena, and it was very easy to get around, and when I got back to the hotel at 4am, there was no lockout; it was very easy to get back in and up to my room to go to sleep.

Had a loud club connected to the hotel but couldn’t hear a thing up in our room. Very clean room and amazing view. Also 24hours service/open door

Great location and room for the price

At just under $100 for a room, this hotel was really great. A short walk to Chinatown, which was perfect for the night out. Nice room and clean. It was also nice and quiet. Staff were friendly and professional. We even got upgraded to an executive room, which was a nice surprise.

The room was quite nice, only couple of things were not as good as I expected : - The wifi in the entrance was very slow, the bandwith limitation didn't allow the messeging app. "LINE" to work at all. When I got given a free one day "premium Wifi" ( 5 AUD normally ) to try, it did work. However the reception in the room was very poor, so I decided not to purchase additional days and get my own pocket wifi instead. So I think that not expecting too much about wifi is in order there. - The previous guests left the room in a terrible state, leaving trash and personal belongings they did not need anymore a bit everywhere. I needed to ask the reception 3 times before it actually got cleaned up ( in the meanwhile, my bed was supposed to be done since it was the corresponding day on the schedule ... but was not done. At the end, it was eventually cleaned with the mess ). - Not quite enough shower for everybody, so even thought they are being cleaned 5 times a day ( and it's possible to require exra cleaning ), it's pretty often dirty. Since the toilets ( "train style" like, in metal ) are in the same units, and many young people sleeping in the hotel do not seem to care much about cleanliness, it's often wet everywhere too. Apart from that, the facilities were pretty good, all bed have they own shelf with electric sockets, next to the locker, and it really is semi-private. There is also a small gym and a small movie room.

Space hotel was a comfortable place to stay in a great location, with a decent bar just downstairs. People were friendly and easygoing. I just wish the rooftop access didn’t close so early.
