Very good hostel indeed. Offers everything from a rooftop hot tub to a gym and. Cinema room. Very nice clean rooms and a good downstairs bar with cheap deals. I would recommend this to anyone travelling to Melbourne. Good location also. Easy walking around the CBD and close to Victoria Markets.

Everything about this stay was fantastic. It is billed as a Hostel, but it far exceeds any expectation that a Hostel may suggest. Everything is top class. my room had a great view of trees in the heart of Melbourne. All doors operate on a swipe, so when you have a shower or use the toilet you have it all...

Stayed here twice once with a sporting team (we had a dorm room) and once by my self (private room). Cannot fault anything! Great staff, central and clean (which is the most important part for me). The view from the roof top was spectacular and the dorm rooms had lockers and a little shelf to store and charge phones! Thanks...

My daughter and I stayed here only on an overnight trip. From the moment we arrived at reception to book in we were made welcome. My daughter uses a wheelchair and we were accommodated every which way to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. From a twin room we were upgraded to a family room so we had private...

Value for money. Good Location. We were most happy with our stay except the staff manning the front office. Needs improvement. Very sourish and not friendly when we ask them to help us to access Space's internet

Space Hotel Melbourne: This is a great hostel located centrally downtown Melbourne. The hostel seems rather new with pretty spacious rooms. The lounge area and public areas were clean, and absolutely a recommended place to stay if visiting Melbourne. This review is based on a four bed dorm. Room: The room was okay spacious with huge lockers for the luggage....

This place is a unique mix of Hostel and Hotel, with the option of booking a hostel style accommodation or a private room with a private bathroom - that is more on the hotel side. I stayed in the private room with private bathroom. The staff was nice, although my room was not cleaned or sheets changed my entire 5...

This place is good to stay, just right around the corner from the noise of city center. Hygiene standards were good, there was no queue for using toilets in the morning and their lockers were big enough to accommodate a big airplane bag. They have a big common kitchen and offer washing machine and iron for clothes. There was no...

We ended up staying at this backpackers for nearly three weeks. We stayed in dorm rooms but each bed had an element of privacy to it. You each got a really big locker, shelf, socket and light. Also bathrooms were private and clean. The kitchen and laundry were also both lovely. Location was good, very near. Carlton gardens. I really...

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.
