Overall, the Space Hotel is modern, very clean, conveniently located near the Melbourne CBD and the great Carlton / Italian district. There's a movie room, full-on professional kitchen, and helpful staff. The only problem we had was on karaoke night because we were on the 2nd floor right over the nightclub / bar and the hotel was full, so we...

I purchased this hotel for 4 nights because it was the only one for around $200 AUD in the CBD. Important: - This is not a hotel, it's a hostel. So while the price seems the cheapest for a Melbourne, it's an expensive hostel. - I got the single room with shared facilities. There is no bathroom, shower, toilet, fridge...

The space hotel is a beautifully kept hotel. For a little bit more money you get a lot more than other hostels/hotels. The rooms and public areas are newly renovated and kept exceptionally clean. Upon my arrival I was happily upgraded without asking from a double room to a double room with ensuite and balcony. We only stayed for two...

Efficient, clean, modern. Good location at the top if Russell Street within easy walking around CBD. Although it attracts a younger backpacker crowd there are several private rooms with either private or shared bathrooms. I had a double bed with shared bathroom, toilets and showers were always available. Great view of the city and the rooftop garden is a plus!...

Stayed here for 3 nights, and really enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and had all the facilities necessary.

I'll put it simply. If you're staying in Melbs and you want to pay hostel price with top hotel quality then this is it! It's possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed at in terms of the quality provided and the cost. There is an excellent choice of accommodation, from the big dorms to the Private En Suites. I stayed...

If you like to have party and socialise, there is always something going on. However, if you need to rest after a long flight, it's quiet enough in the rooms.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
