The Space

Live in the middle of Melbourne!

Live above heritage listed Capitol Theatre in the centre of Melbourne's CBD - opposite Town Hall and two minutes' walk from Federation Square, Bourke Street Mall and Flinders Street Station.

Built by Burley Griffin in 1924, the building is one of Melbourne's best-loved. You'll find bigger and neater places, but you won't find anything as convenient.


Stay with Julien and Philip, a French-Australian couple with a detailed knowledge of the city, engaged in Melbourne's literary, linguistic and cultural scenes.

Your Room:

Your room is small but beautiful, with well-stocked bookshelves and a comfortable single bed. There's no parking, but trams leave from the front door. Wireless internet, bathroom and washer/dryer to share.


People of all languages welcome - ours include French, English, German and Mandarin. We look forward to hosting you in the heart of the city.

  • A great location and a really pleasant experience. I really enjoyed Philip's company for the few hours our paths crossed. He was very warm, welcoming and generous. It was a bit like having a brother in another city. You chat while together but then go off and do your own thing. I very highly recommend them. Julien was adventuring in China, so I did not meet him. He seems very interesting

  • I had a great experience here - It really is right in the midst of it all in the heart of Melbourne. Philip was very accommodating with making time to meet with me and was a great host. The room was small and perfect for someone traveling alone. I would absolutely recommend.

  • Philip was a perfect host - very helpful and friendly. Communication leading up to the visit was clear and easy. He was extremely flexible with check-in. The room was clean and cosy. Whilst the apartment is right in the heart of Melbourne CBD, it is amazingly quiet.

  • Friendly hosts and a great central location. Thank you for a great stay!

  • Had a brilliant time with Philip and Julien and nothing was to much trouble. Communication was excellent and the location is wondering being right in the heart of the CBD.

  • Staying at Philip and Julien's place was really great. It is right on Swanston Street in a super busy part of town -- not that you'd know it by how quiet the apartment was at night. On top of that Philip and Julien were both super friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend.

  • What a great find! You can't find a better location in the CBD in Melbourne. Everything is nearby and the guys are terrific. It's comfortable, easy, relaxed and clean. Enjoy!

  • Truly nice guys with a very convenient apartment & a great shower. Very quiet despite its position on a major Melbourne sreet.
