Let BdH(Rm) be the hyperspace of nonempty bounded closed subsets of Euclidean space Rm endowed with the Hausdorff metric. It is well known that BdH(Rm) is homeomorphic to the Hilbert cube minus a point. We prove that natural dense subspaces of BdH(Rm) of all nowhere dense closed sets, of all perfect sets, of all Cantor sets and of all Lebesgue measure zero sets are homeomorphic to the Hilbert space 2. For each 01<m, let

νkm={x=(xi)i=1mRm:xiRQ except for at most k many i},

where νk2k+1 is the k-dimensional Nöbeling space and ν0m=(RQ)m. It is also proved that the spaces BdH(ν01) and BdH(νkm), 0k<m-1, are homeomorphic to 2. Moreover, we investigate the hyperspace CldH(R) of all nonempty closed subsets of the real line R with the Hausdorff (infinite-valued) metric. It is shown that a nonseparable component H of CldH(R) is homeomorphic to the Hilbert space 2(20) of weight 20 in case where HR,[0,),(-,0].
