I had to climb a few stairs but the room was clean and secure. Plenty of hot water in the shared bathroom. Centrally located and easy to find. I felt safe when I wandered around that part of Sydney after dark.

I flew into Sydney from Cairns with my daughter, looking for somewhere reasonably cheap to stay for a few days before our flight back to England, we had travelled throughout Australia for a month stopping mostly at YHA hostels which were generally pretty good, unfortunately those in Sydney were full for this particular weekend and the Maze had rooms so...

This place is WILD! From the moment you are checked in by the grinning glitter-faced receptionist to the moment you are checked out by the grinning glitter-faced receptionist it is a non stop whirlwind of insane behavior. Dubstep and Glitch are cranked 24-7 out of the Hostels sound system and the guests love it. It is a non stop dance... More

After what seemed like an eternity off the road working into an early grave I finally hit the skies and jetted off to Sydney. My inspiration was the Soundwave music festival but come on...who needs an excuse to go to Aussie?! The nicest prison ever!! After a 26 hour flight which I must admit, felt like an extended version of... More

I've stayed here twice and both times were pretty good. Great location - only a few minutes walk away from central station and within reach of cheap food. It's definitely noisy and people are everywhere. If you're staying on a saturday night, expect the common areas to be completely trashed in the morning as people party. The room is decently... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks in a twin room. Our room was right next to the pool common room which was great as we got wifi in our room but from the look of people constantly in common areas on laptops not everyone did. We initially booked for 3 nights and then extended - they wanted... More

If you like smearing faeces over your body for a hobby this is the place for you! Complimentary mould with every room. There seemed to be a cockroach exhibition going on since they were everywhere. Room wasn't cleaned since last occupants. Staff were unhelpful, rude and made you feel out of order for asking any kind of question. You may... More

I booked a single room in the maze backpackers, not expecting much. Maze isn't just the name of this place, it is a total maze of corridors, which felt pretty un-safe in the case of an emergency. My window did not close, and had a fire escape right outside..... Great for a fast escape, but not so great in making... More

Me and my boyfriend got a double room and we have no complaints. We spent 4 nights over there and everything was great: clean bedroom, clean bathrooms, clean laundry. It's in the heart of Sydney CBD, so everything is very close (walk distance). The only two negative point is about the internet which is 1 AUD per 15 min; a... More
