A little bit afraid to stay there after reading some awkward reviews. Evenhow, just found out it was such an awesome place with free drinks and sometimes free meals (love free Chicken and rice) lots of events make it more lively, got free airport shuttle too !!

Reading the reviews I was hesitant to book a room at Maze but I couldn't find another hostel that could beat the price. After travelling for 10 months and staying in a lot of hostels, I have to say that Maze was great! We stayed in a double room - it was basic but clean and the bed was comfortable.... More

Very nice place, the staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious and cleans. Its party every day in here and theres a lot of free food, free goon and drinking games. The Maze is located directly in the CBD area which is great. i would certainly recommend this hostel for those who wants to met people and party!

Literally the worst place ever. Only been here a few hours and already feel the need to write this review..mainly because I can't sleep due to the springs digging into my back from the mattress. Staff were rude on check in..I wasn't told about anything like where the toilets or kitchen was and the clues in the name with this... More

This place really wasn't for me. It was a crazy party place. I enjoy socialising but this was beyond that. Location is great but for the price I expected more. Cleanliness wasn't a great standard either! I just didn't feel comfortable. I think for the price you can get more for your money in Sydney.

I stayed in a single bed room for six nights while in Sydney for some work and the Chelsea/SydneyFC game. I wanted somewhere cheap but with my own space and maze provided exactly that. There are several different room options at Maze and I picked a single bed room so I had my own space. The room was small but... More

I had an unforgettable stay in Maze. Amazing parties (with goon-game, free entry in clubs...), great people from everywhere and really friendly staff. There are always someone at reception, night and day to help you, especially Henry. The hostel have a good location, near to Central Station, TownHall, City center, easy to visit Sydney or for a longest stay. The... More

I chose a single room, which has been given a twin room. As a result, I used double pillow and quilt. There is no heater, however, feel like a bit of central heating . So it's not too cold in May. The room is tidy, clean bed sheet, with clean linen. Toilet not as clean as Casa central accommodation or... More

The maze has an amazing vibe. Great staff, awesome activities day and night, good friends and good fun. The location is ideal for getting anywhere in sydney, its just a short walk to central train station. Perfect for those who are on their working holiday visa. Its very affordable and on your days off work, there is always a party... More
