I didn't try the activities, but the rooms were clean, and I liked the individual bathrooms rather than locker-room style. Was a bit annoying to have to pay a deposit for cutlery and crockery, though.

The Space hotel in Melbourne is a pretty poor hotel with the amenities somehow missing through the hotel. The bunk-beds in the shared room was very tiny, with only 2 square meters ( according to booking.com). This is particularly bad to the top bunk beds as people might bump their heads onto the cramped ceiling while travelling up and down...

Hello Justin, All of our dorm rooms come with bathrooms located on the hallway which have a lock on the inside of the door, if you lock the door behind you there is no way that these doors can be opened by other guests.

The front desk receptionists will always greet you with a smile, such is the Australian culture where everyone will. I got a mixed dorm room for one night and a single private room for another, both with shared bathrooms.

Well equipped dorm rooms. Each bed gets two charging ports, and an adjustable reading light, as well as a large storage locker and shelf. One of the best set ups I've seen in a hostel so far. Dividers in between the bunks, would have been ever better if they had dividers on the bunks themselves. Cleanliness of the dorm room...

To start with I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. It was clean, comfortable and even had some extra conveniences which were awesome, like your own shelf next to your bed with a light and 2 outlets. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The staff were great. There was a big clean and organized kitchen too.

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.
