Maybe the best way is to have the hackerspace close it's doors around 1am
and reopen at 9am.  This was done at the south bay hackerspace when we
didn't have doors that could be opened from the inside.  I remember I had
to ask people sleeping to leave because I was about to lock up.  It was
definitely a good way to prevent people from staying overnight.
