10/10 Exceptional

Home away from home
Perfect for a solo trip with single room. The bathrooms are cleaned many times a day and the water is always hot. However, the hand dryers should be automatically switched off after 10pm as it is very loud and can wake you up during the night. Great location and very close to the essentials. The single room accommodation was perfect (just what you need nothing fancy). The staff were all very friendly, approachable and helpful. Definitely a home away from home!!

8/10 Very good

Very good place, but not like it used to be..
I’ve been at the Space hotel in the past, when it was brand new, and I’ve always loved it. However, coming back after a few years has not been the same. Probably due to Covid, the staff shortage has affected the level of cleanness and of safety in this place. Compared to other hostel it’s still a very good quality, but over the years I can tell the difference. But I’m pretty sure they will get soon on track and raise the standards again! 🙂
