4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at Maze for 5 days and chose it primarily due to it being a lot cheaper than other hostels in this area. My husband and I had our own room. The hostel felt a bit like a prison, with endless corridors and doors and a bit grim. Our room was small with a bunkbed and tiny window, but... More

The rooms and bathrooms are decent enough, cleaned every day. Quite time starts at 11 but most go out for a night on the town with discounted prices or events for groups. never had a problem with anything getting stolen or going missing. Just a good group of people looking to have a good time and experience Sydney!

I loved my stay @ the Maze. The staff was kind and helpful, events everyday (day & night), a big kitchen and a great atmosphere. It's also very well located and rooms are good for reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this hostel to any traveler!

The service at Maze Backpacker's was very impressive and commendable. Although it's a budget accommodation, there were a lot of features that made the stay here convenient. Not only did they let us check-in early on the day we arrived at no extra charge, they also let us store our luggage in the cloak room for FREE even after checking... More

We stayed at Maze for 4 nights in a twin room. My girlfriend and I don't like sharing a room because you never know who your room mate will be. Everything was pretty good. A little bit loud on the friday night but that is expected in a hostel on a weekend. After 11pm most people had gone out so... More

I booked to stay at Maze for a 3 days, 4 months later I've just checked out. When I arrived I was greeted with a friendly smile by professional staff. They are on hand 24/7 to deal with any questions you might have and always provide excellent service. Over the past few months my friend and I have gotten to... More

We stayed at maze for approximately 3 weeks. Me and my boyfriend stayed in a twin room in the yellow area. We thought it was very basic and small for what you pay. After 1 week I went to the reception and asked for someone to vacuum the floor. We waited another week and the floor was still not vacuumed.... More

This was by far one of the worst experiences I have ever had as a traveling couple looking for accommodation. I came with my girlfriend who checked in a few hours earlier then me as I was traveling in from Brisbane...She texted me when she got there saying the manager was very flirtatious with her, even volunteering to walk her...

While we understand that not all of your stay was disappointing, there were parts that were. At Maze we’ve a culture of making sure all of our guests have a great,... More

A big hostel in a great location in Sydney. Walking distance to a lot of things. The hostel rooms are pretty standard for Australia and the bathrooms are decent. Lots of activities are organised daily and there's a few free meals every week. There's pre drinks in the main area most nights so it's easy to meet new people!
