Lets start with the good things: - They have locker big enough for a luggage of 23 kilos. Pay 10 dolars and you can leave it there for 3 days. Perfect if your moving to another city and come back. - One blonde guy was super friendly when we did the check in. He even let us have the room... More

Maze was very nice if you consider that it is quite cheap in comparison to other Hostels in the same area. Very central location, could walk everywhere. Staff was friendly. Free dinner two times a week!! At Maze there are many party nights but after ten they move to a bar so that the rest of the guests are able... More

I stayed in Maze Hostel for some month. The atmosphere is good because everyone has to pass the kitchen area. But thats about it. The showers in blue are under construction for 6 month. The yellow bathroom smells like old food and grease. I saw many cockroaches in Maze .The staff at the reception is usually very nice but the... More

Maze hostel is an awesome hostel, with such great vibes. It is always my go to hostel when I am in Sydney! I had amazing 8 month in Maze. Nice accommodation and always fun stuff going on. Will miss this place when I leave.

This hostel is in a central location. Only a few blocks away from Central Station and Darling Harbour make this a perfect location for the average backpacker. The best part about this hostel is the free food. I stayed for six weeks and the free food was great. On Mondays, its an Aussie burger with all of the fixings. Thursday... More

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.
