Fantastic World Cup accommodation. Unfortunately Bob and Malu didn't organise any special WC jazz action, but that would of been the icing on the cake. The view from the hostel is awesome, the hostel it's self is very unique. The breakfast is awesome and the staff very friendly. I'd highly recommend the stay to anyone. The location is in the...

One of the best nights I had in Brazil was when I brought my friends to the live jazz bar at The Maze.. Incredible musicians, fantastic atmosphere and stunning night time views over Rio. You have to take a taxi to the top of Catache ( sorry if spelled wrong) favela and then there is someone waiting to escort you... More

Every first friday of the month the hostel offers jazz live music to guests and outsiders with this great view of Rio!! To arrive in The Maze you have to walk through the favela, which is a very nice experience.... The owner trespasses on prices, which makes the place a little expensive.

Just back from a wonderful stay in and around Rio. We stayed at the Maze for a couple of nights in mid December and really enjoyed our time there. My partner and I turned up mid afternoon on a Saturday and were warmly ushered into a fantastic feijoada (loose translation "party") in an open room with a panoramic view of... More

Having stayed in The Maze (and lots of other places in Rio) for several times, I can say that it is one of the most amazing locations to spend a few days. The view is perfect, the people are very very friendly and its a place where you will always meet interesting people! When i came back in The Maze... More

First of all this place is not an 5 star acc. Typical guest house as one can find similarities everywhere. So no need to make your whole holiday there, a couple of days especially on the dates of the Bob and friends Jazz nights is OK, and different taste to stay and walk in the favelas which is not easy...

We are shocked by the previous review. Maybe The Maze is a bit like marmite - you either love it or you hate it and we LOVED it, as I'm sure most people will if you appreciate a relaxed homely B&B with stunning views and a taste of a real Rio neighbourhood. Bob and Malu are very chilled out hosts,... More

Unfortunately the organiser of our trip - a young guy- thought "The Maze" would be something "special" and "cosy" and made the big mistake to choose for it and book 3 nights for our group of about 20 persons: "normal adults".

This place is NOT for everyone. However, if you are considering it, you probably are the type of person that will be okay with some of things you will be dealing with if you stay here. First - the neighborhood is very SAFE. Do not worry about this. It is located in the Flamengo neighborhood - there are not really... More
