The Space Hostel is ok - not more. I stayed here in a single room for 4 nights. The room was good - view towards the city was nice. There are on every floor rooms where there is a shower and toilets which could be a bit cleaner in total. The Hostel is only offering free wifi downstairs at the...

My friend and I had an amazing stay at the Space Hotel. For one, it's location was brilliant - 2 minute walk away from Central Station and the State Library, loads of places to eat and go out near by. The rooms were always cleaned when we came back to them and they were a good size (we had a...

This is a large hostel with excellent facilities and as a result it is more expensive than other hostels in the CBD. There is a small gym, cinema room, huge kitchen, and the dorm rooms have large lockers, air con, comfy beds and a shelf/socket/light for each bed which was very handy. The location in the CBD is convenient. I...

The Hostel is really easy to get to from the airport using the SkyBus, and is situated within walking distance of the city centre and other attractions such as the Old Melbourne Gaol and the Melbourne Museum. The reception staff were all very friendly and informative and check in was quick, I had booked a single room with shared bathroom...

All you could want from a hostel is under one roof, or on it shall I say, with their roof top jacuzzi! This place has got the works: also including a bar, fitness room and a cinema room! Each room is fitted with a generous sized locker, extra sheets and even a towel. On each floor is a water station...

Had a very entertaining and enjoyable wedding reception for my nephew on the rooftop of the Space Hotel. According to my brother, the hiring of the space was very reasonable and Jesse (manager of the booking) couldnt have done more for them. A great space and some of the best views of Melbourne from an eighth floor. Food was very...

Stayed there for 2 nights. Did not have enough time to really use the facilities in this hotel, as I was out most of the time.

The Hostel is in a really good central location and is relatively clean. We got a private room as we had just landed and had jet lag. The beds were comfortable and we had a TV and lockers in our room. The general building was clean however the bathrooms needed more regular attention. However what stand out was how unfriendly...

Stayed here for 3 nights last September while doing a solo backpacking trip and I should say this hostel was one of the best I've been to. It is strategically located, very close to Federation Square; I did not have a hard time looking for restaurants as there are many surrounding the hostel. There's also a movie room and a...

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.
