    Clean, new, comfortable
    A well-kept, new hotel w rooms that include shared dorms and pocket-sized single rooms. I had a single, it was extremely small but had a desk (and a tv on a swivel-mounted wall bracket). Two pillows, heat pump, and a cupboard. No space for suitcase, it sat in the entrance-way. The single rooms and dorms have shared bathrooms, & those are cleaned 5x per day. They do clean at peak times, which is good as the bathrooms get dirty fast, but it’s also inconvenient: during my six-night stay I twice encountered closed bathrooms when they were cleaning at the time I needed to use them. The cleaner was very kind in letting me use one of the bathrooms. On my floor (6) there’s an area with hot and cold water available, and there are tea/coffee sachets in the room, plus disposable cups. They’re apparently biodegradable foam, but I still wish I had my travel cup, to avoid adding to landfill. Shared kitchen has big fridges where u can keep groceries, which must be bagged & labelled. Labels are provided; bring a reusable grocery bag of your own (there’s a Coles supermarket in basement of QV mall, 10min walk away). There’s a gym with Lifecycle stationary bike, treadmill, and a couple of multi-function weight machines. Lounge has a selection of books and a foozball table. Front desk staff are friendly & helpful. The main “down” for me was one of the two lifts (the one to my floor!) breaking down between 10pm and the following 4am when I had to leave for the airport!

    Perfect For Solo Travel
    The Space Hotel was perfect for solo travel. The "pod" is cozy and makes the whole experience extra fun. Highly recommend!

    I 100% left a phone charger in the room after I checked-out, I came back the following day and they said there was no report of a charger being left.

    Fantastic hostel!
    We spent 4 nights here ( family of 4 ) in a family room with a private bathroom. The room was spacious , clean and comfortable. We loved the facilities! .... from the rooftop patio with hot tub, foosball table in the lounge, the amazing kitchen, movie theatre room, etc, our kids felt we were at a resort. The front desk staff were absolutely excellent - so helpful and happy to give advice about the city. The location is amazing too! So central in the city. You can easily walk everywhere. Wifi didn't work too great from our room.
