I spend almost all my time in Sydney living in The Maze and it was awesome. There is free food at least 3 times a week. Free goon 2-3 time a week and free entry in a club every day. Great ambience and great staff, shout out to Khalid and Henry. It's a must if you go to Sydney.

This backpackers hotel is one of the most happening places I ever stayed at. Evenings are very eventful and everyday there are some nice offers to catch. They give really nice discount offers to some city attractions like the Sydney Eye Tower, The Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussauds etc which you must avail. There is a free shuttle also from... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hostel. The room was quite small for 4 people and it smelt a bit musty, but it was clean and quiet. The main asset of this hostel is its great location, close to Central station and within walking distance from Sydney's major attractions including the harbour. I would recommend it to people who are... More

It's a good cost benefit, the staff is friendly and the place is all right, try to get something with a few people in the bedrooms, the difference won't be so much.. nice to stay a few days, more than that try to find some appartament around CDB!

This is my 4th stay here at Maze. I guess that owe to say a lot about the property. Common ref and kitchen is provided and free for every guest to use. Room availability ranges from solo to 10 in a room. Room rate varies on the number of occupants per room. The more people in a room the cheaper... More

Maze is quite cheap and it won't be the worst place you'll ever stay but staying in Australian winter when the window let the elements into the room will leave you with a bad chest as me and my two friends found out. Our room smelt damp and you literally wouldn't have been able to swing a cat in it..... More
