We arrived early morning to early to check in so stored our bags by the time we came back to check in you could hardly open the luggage room door due to the sea of bags put literally inside and not on the shelves just so people could get theirs easy.

Stayed in Maze with friends for a couple of days.. Good points are clearly the location on Pitt Street and not much else really. The mattress I was on must have been made of concrete, now I'm not expecting luxury at a backpackers but man that hurt the back. Secondly, the noise: constant road works throughout the night made it... More

Maze was at one stage easily one of the best hostels in Sydney. There used to be a real buzz and excitement in the air. However the management decided to get rid of all the individuals who had been there for longer then 2 months. This resulted in completely killing the family atmosphere and making a visit to Maze a...

Stayed here over the Hogmanay period! Staff are friendly and have many nights out to keep u entertained and get everyone together. As soon as you walk in the place smells and looks sad. You have one toilet/shower room to each floor, and they are disgusting. Hair everywhere and even used tampons and pads on show visible to the eye.... More

Basically if you are a man you will be fine. If you are a girl you will be harassed. If you want to sleep- don't bother. And if your idea of customer service is patronizing men who think they are the next big thing then you have found your place. They made us wait the 12 minutes until two o'clock... More

Hey everyone! I'm staying at Maze Backpachers from a week by now, and it is fun! Really! Excelent reception, great company and nobody disturbs! Deserves a special mention Nick, a staff member that spent a lot of time helping me with the writing of my resume! Thanks all! Thanks Nick! Try this accommodation!
