    Good

    It felt safe and secure.

    We did not like that the heating and the hot water did not work effectively(the heater at all)

  • 6.6
    Good

    Rate and location are the most important things

    The receptionist was so rude when asking for the credit card. I was actually asking nicely why we needed to show the credit card because the id was confirmed and the payment has been made. I am not too sure what the guy thought about at the time. I hate I was served like a impostor.......that is the only thing I dont like at all. I think the manner lesson should be given how to treat your customers..... Otherwise the hotel is in the very right location in the city and its rate super cheap which are the highlight of this hotel.

    Exceptional

    Friendly and helpful service. Top central location between the cafes, shops and restaurants of Melbourne cbd and the cafes, restaurants and evening life of Carlton. Reasonable rates. 24 hour check-in. Very clean and tidy.

    Hot water issues in shower at one stage, no hot water for tea/coffee due to equipment failure too.

    Fabulous

    The bedroom in Space Hotel is clean, simple but worth for a budget hotel. It is located in cbd area, so it will only take a short walk to get to the city center. I also highly for their cleanliness, especially the bathroom.

    Very good

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Good specials and events in the hotel bar/ restaurant facilities

    I had a single room and had to share a bathroom, I thought that the proportion of bathrooms to rooms/ beds was too low.During peak times there was no hot water for the shower.

    Located close to the Melbourne CBD

    No Lights in Shower room, water flow not stable and water keeps changing from hot to cold. The cinema room is good but the projector itself needs to be changed, very dull and dimm picture quality.

    Fabulous

    Hotel design and facilities

    Toilets and showers far from room I would like to stay my own bathroom in to the room but for bacpackers nice design for couple good experience :)

    Superb

    Really was more like a hotel than a hostel. Rooms, bathrooms etc were all very clean and there was always staff hoovering, cleaning kitchen/bathrooms and emptying bins. The Blue Moon bar was excellent value and the food was great - you get extra 10% off for staying there and the happy hour deals were unbeatable. Wait staff were also great. Would highly reccommend staying here to anyone on a budget but wants a few more home comforts. About 5 min walk to main shopping hub of Swanston St and only 20 min walk to Southern Cross station.

    Fabulous

    Coming from Western Australia on short notice we were looking for a place to stay central to the city that was within our budget which was not going to get a five star hotel. I would definitely stay there again and my son-in-law said he would also.

    Exceptional

    The hotel, room, kitchen and every corner is neat and tidy. You get individual toilet/shower facilities despite staying in dorm.

    I happened to be sleeping on the top bunk and my head kept hitting the ceiling. It shows how close proximity I am from the ceiling.

    Exceptional

    It was all great. The staff was very kind (special thx for some favors! :), the place is very safe and as they were remodeling it, it already looked great in some aspects, and when ready will look perfect (saw the project pictures). Ow, the location is excellent: easy to get to the action, and in the same time close to some great attractions.

    Nothing in particular. Even the remodeling process wouldn't bother much once they would change signs everytime the access changed and so on. So pro staff.

    Very good

    No remote control! Had to call down to front desk to find us one, bed was pretty cold with just the sheets.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    It was comfortable, spacious, convenient and clean.

    There are not many showers and toilets on the floor we were on (only 3 showers - so queue in the morning). The water of the shower was cold! It was cold in the room due to the air con to loud (no possibilities to adjust the strength of the wind) and no extra blanket to use so we got very cold at night.
