  • 2.0.Poor

    Too noisy, we could hear everyone who lived on the same floor as well as everyone at the street. Music was playing until 2 AM. I would not recommend and won’t ever book this place again.

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

    The view from the top was amazing! You can see the whole city skyline. The hotub is nice. This is the best hostel in Australia! They have cabinets with towels and extra blankets for each bed. Each bed also has a personal light and multiple charging ports.

    Fresh and modern facilities make it an easy comfortable stay. Very comfortable bed in the ensuite room. Spacious kitchen allows for many people to comfortably use with clean fridges! Nice deck with views of the city. Only issue was night staff on check in were difficult to understand.

    Better than expected

    Its a really great place, stayed in a family room. Great location not far from public transport. It was really better than expected. Parking is the only issue, on the street metered parking. Would stay again especially if I dont have a car.
