This hostel is brilliant- We stayed in dorms so I say hostel however it really is hotel worthy. It has everything you need. We were meant to stay for two days and move, but we extended twice and ended up here for 10. The kitchen is top class, and as a backpacker having an actual oven (that cooks well) is a luxury. The showers were hot and powerful for the whole time we were there, and each little bathroom is on it's own with a toilet and sink useually so even though you are 'Sharing' you still get your own space and aren't showering next to others. Amar on the travel desk was brilliant, sorted everything for us and really knew his stuff. Cinema room is also a nice treat if you want a night in. The only thing we found is that the rooftop hottub wasn't very hot- just warm. Everything else brilliant. Warning though- every hostel you go to after may seem a bit rubbish.

With twenty boys plus coaches and managers checking in all at the same time it was chaotic, all excited and wanting to go to their rooms straight away..... front desk were so helpful and the housekeeping, kitchen team went out of their way to help us with all our needs. Refrigeration, cool room and dry storage was not a problem and access was given with a smile. Communal kitchen was always cleaned after every meal session by the staff! Great meeting and chatting with the other travelers from all over the world!
Thank you to Yossi and all his staff.

I call this place a hostel because hotels do not do shared bathrooms, but it's such a good hostel that you can call it a hotel.

The hotel was clean and tidy, the shared bathrooms were not dirty and pretty comfortable to use. And there are always plenty of shared bathrooms and toilets so there's no wait queue. Also quite simple and elegant.

Also did I tell you I got a free double bed for the price of a single?

For a city with high end hotels and budget hostels, this hotel cuts in between.
For very reasonable price you get clean room in a chic hotel which is located at the heart of the city.

Although bathrooms are not attached, you have your privacy. The fitness center is also good for a decent workout.

The Flinders Train Station is at a walking distance and so are the major shopping malls and cafes.

All in all a great place to stay for younger crowds

My girlfriend and I stayed at Space hotel for 4 nights for a little trip to Melbourne. With bad experiences in the past we were a bit skeptical at first, but the Space Hotel put our worries to rest quickly. It was a short walk from Southern Cross station after a early morning flight and long bus ride from Avalon Airport. After a friendly greeting from the hotel staff, we checked out our Queen room which was clean and cozy, but a bit loud at late night and early morning since our room was so close to the street. 24 hour kitchen hours and a 15-20 person movie room with a large projector screen was perfect for watching all of the World Cup games. Kitchen faculties were pretty nice and spacious. Exceeded all of our expectations and is located in a PRIME location for walking to just about anywhere in Melbourne.

This was my first solo trip and first hostel. I was pleasantly surprised. I chose the semi private dorm with 4 beds. The rooms is well sized, the locker is big enough for a backpackers bag, but the top locker coat hanger is high for a 162cm person like me, so I had to climb the bunkbeds to reach it. Beds and pillow are comfortable, toilets and showers are clean, The kitchen is huge, and its a real kitchen, with ovens, microwave and a real stove. There is even a communal fridge for everyone to store their food. I did not try the rest of the facilities. I say it is relatively expensive for a hostel, but its so comfortable and complete plus, there is a room for everyone's budget from 8 bed dorm to a full family suite.

Room Tip: Its a hostel, so you have teams of hyperactive athletes boarding. So it can get a bit noisy Remembe...
