Came to maze thinking I would just stay a couple of nights and ended up staying three weeks! Great hostel with a great atmosphere. The entertainment nights that were put on were fab really brought people that were staying there together and that's what hostels are about so that is definitely what made me stay here longer than planned and...

A friend and I stayed for one night and then returned (after a short trip to Melbourne) and stayed for another night. To be honest if I hadn't paid in advance I wouldn't have returned. When we first arrived we stayed in room 13 (private room) which is way too close to the kitchen and common area, so it was... More

I only ever stay one nite at a time coming in and out of the city so never used the kitchen. The single rooms arnt great as noise levels from the street are loud... More

We were looking for something not too expensive and found this hostel. The rooms as well as the beds are not great. No wardrobes no nothing, just a chair. Shared bathrooms and toilettes. We are young and can handle all the noise of a youth backpacker, but if we had another option we would have gone to another place. I... More

Great location between central and town hall station, short walk yo pitt st mall and darling harbour. My only issue with staying here was, during our... More

OMG where to start. Not only does "Maze Backpackers" have the best location in Sydney, the best reception to help guide you around Sydney and plan your trip. I stayed at Maze Backpackers for 7 nights during my Birthday week and they made it the best birthday of my life. To everyone singing happy birthday, and all the goon games... More

I stayed three nights in a single bed room which was clean and comfortable for a backpacker staying just some days. The staff is friendly and they have a transfer from and back to the airport if you need. I had just a problem with noise, it seems someone was awaken from 2 am watching TV during a couple of...

If your looking for a good location and friendly Staff, Maze is great. The building and decor are pretty dated, but clean. There is fresh linen on the beds when you arrive. The location is great 2 mins to China Town and 5 mins to either Darling Harbour or Oxford St. You get what you pay for and I thought... More

Overall ok hostel. Room was average. Most staff is friendly but did meet a few ones who did not want to help. Ladies' showers were not clean and hot water is rare. There was noise till late into the night.
