Top backpackers. Friendly. Secure and fun. Close to city and clubs.

nice place. newly renovated. friendly staff. stayed here upon moving to australia and made some friends for life from my hostel room. 10/10 would return.

wonderful spot. space has it all! games, tv/theatre room. spa. clean rooms. friendly staff. top of cbd. what more could you want?! stay here!

I really enjoyed staying here. Everything was personalised. The people on the desk had a few difficulties with English and my stuff was cleared out of my room on the second night due to them getting the beds mixed up, the guy above me on the bunk bed had used my locker and I had used his. I was rather worried when my stuff was missing. The kitchens are amazing.

Great place to stay especially if on a budget! More like a hotel than a hostel. While inquiring about Space before booking, staff were informative and helpful through email. I was a bit worried about the locker space for my luggage at the time but it was more than adequate. I slept in a semi-private room of four and it was fine getting a decent night's sleep. Very clean facilities and washrooms cleaned regularly throughout the day which I appreciated. It is located right in the city, close to everything you need really including the free-tram zone, Flinders Station, Federation Square and the Visitor's centre. No problems leaving baggage in storage for the day once checked out either. Nice additional features that I made use of were the rooftop hottub, fitness facility, complimentary house drink at Blue Moon Bar. Lounge and kitchen areas were more than sufficient too. Also, able to book Skybus to airport right at front desk. My only reason for not giving Space a perfect overall score was wifi. Wifi costed an additional $5/day or $20/wk and up to a certain data usage only. While I appreciated the hour complimentary wifi they provided, I was only using internet while there, and it was quite frustrating having to go to a Hungry Jacks, or Fed Square to get service. Their other competitors also offer the free wifi too. Yet, I would highly recommend Space to anyone staying in Melbourne, and would easily stay there again myself.

The rooms are pretty big for what I had expected. But overall not spectacular. Rooms were clean and provided what I needed. It seemed kind of far from everything though?
