Stayed a couple of nights with two friends. The location is good and the bathrooms and kitchens was okey. The rooms and general areas however was quite worn down and unclean. The rooms was also very cold and extremely noisy. Definitely overpriced!

Stayed in single room for a week. Worked out quite well. It was cheapest option to live in non shared accomodation in Sydney. Location was near to central station so easy to get here from aiport and get off to anywhere in Sydney. Lot of cafes, pubs nearby and next to a big mall and supermarket. I was worried for... More

Myself and my partner spent 7 days staying in Maze. We stayed in a room with 2 beds which was perfect for us, (Backpackers from Scotland). Showers where clean although they got cleaned at strange times and you werent allowed to go in even for a pee whilst cleaning was in progress. Great location to see all the sights, we... More

The best point of this place would be it location. It's close from everything, china town, the train station, and any tourist attractions. About the hostel itself, it's clean since facilities are cleaned many times per day. The kitchen looked big, but it was pretty crowed during the rush... and i went there in Winter, during the off season. Night... More

The backpacker is well placed, really near of the CBD of Sydney. The rooms are cool, even the 4 people rooms. I liked very much the different activities that displayed the Maze : pool table, 24h TV room, and other events like free burger night or free pancakes, etc... That's really cool when you travel alone and you don't know... More

The only redeeming feature of this hostel is the location which is twenty minutes walk away at most from any of the city centre attractions. This hostel is in need of some serious work and renovation especially considering there are some much nicer ones available in Sydney for the same price such as the YHA Central etc. There is no...

Ok before I begin, a quick thing to clarify. If you plan on staying in Sydney...make sure the hostel you're staying in isn't maze. We arrived and the people who work here are great. Service is good and hostel is clean enough (5/10). Ok now all the pros are out the windows, time for the cons - No heating* Expensive... More
