for young adult travelers

I must have missed the details when i booked the room but realise the bathroom is shared. I'm not a big fan of sharing bathrooms so this hotel is suitable for those who intend to stay long and want the basic comforts of a hotel. The Room is clean and is situated near little Italy and other shops and restaurants. One hour in room wifi is included. I am sensitive to air with allergens and found the room very stuffy. It doesn't help when it was a scorching summer day and the air conditioning is very slow, but it eventually cools the room. Be aware The sound of the high pitched kettle goes off constantly. Good for the basic amenities.For a bit more, you can get the benefits of a more comfortable hotel.

Bagpacket must stay there

Very good and comfort hotel. I Nv see the bagpacket hotel service and facilities so good. Some cheaper price bagpacket only provide u a bed, but space hotel provide u everything let u save the cost and save the bag space. I search many bag packet hotel , space hotel are the price cheaper and facilities also good 1. Just 2 weakness: the distance far between southern cross( but hotel has provide the service call the sky bus come to pick up us to southern cross, before 1 day must booking), and the 2sc is every door have the electronic lock, every time go in and out also will make the big loud noisy sound. Sometime will be scared from dream.

Hostel

Hostel was very clean and had a lot to offer- TV lounge, basic gym equipment, hot tub and large clean kitchen. Offered no parking and city parking lots were very expensive. Decent location.

Melbourne's best kept secret

At the risk of over rating Space, let's look at the facts. I stayed in a single room with shared facilities. The room was clean and tidy with a desk and a TV, if I needed them. There was a small wardrobe in which to hang clothes and added blankets should I need them. The room key allows access to toilets/showers and unlike other similar types of accommodation, once you are in there, no-one else can get in. The cost is comparable with other similar accommodation (and sometimes less if you book through an intermediary) with it covering the use of a gym, movie room, kitchen etc. You do not have far to go for a drink as the Blue Moon Bar is located in the complex with a selection of specialty nights and discounted foods etc. A Seven Eleven store is located 50 metres away for incidentals and a bonus for Tasmanian members of ZAP fitness, there is a new gym open not 5-10 minutes walk away!! Space includes a range of accommodation types and, unlike many accommodation places, can provide comfortable accommodation for families of four without having to book another room. The reality is that for me, Space is ideal accommodation......the friendly, helpful staff are the cherries on top of the cake.

Do yourself a favour, go to Lygon Street for restaurants/cafes but do not be intimidated by the waiters spruiking their businesses.

What more can I say?...

In my opinion, Space is "the" place to stay in Melbourne. Located short walking distances to the Melbourne Gaol, Victoria Markets, Melbourne Museum and the Circle Tram, it is ideally located to explore the city of Melbourne. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Space offers numerous types of accommodation from dormitory to family, all well appointed, all clean. The cost is competitive, particularly for dormitory and single accommodation and includes use of a gym, movie room and kitchen facilities. The hotel has laundry facilities, for which there are minimal costs and an internet cafe is located in the foyer, again for which there is a cost. A 7 Eleven is located next door for those incidentals and Space is located within easy walking distance of cafes, including those on Lygon St. My visits to Melbourne are for leisure so I am looking for somewhere safe, clean and handy to the CBD in which to stay. Space offers these and much more. To quote Molly Meldrum, "do yourself a favour...."

Whilst Melbourne CBD offers public transport, it is relatively easier to find your way around and on foot, you can run across cafes etc you might otherwise miss.

Disappoinment

Brought the 2 nights away for my son & family, to find out it is a back packers, this is not stated on my booking, my grand children 5 & 9 where the only children there, had to pay $20 deposit on cutlery(one set), never heard of it before. When having a meal down stairs it was full of young people as expected for a back packers, not a family environment, they made there most of there stay, but if l had known l would have never had booked it for them. very disappointed :(
