I was staying in Maze for 5 days in April 2017. It's a lovely place. Friendly personnel, clean room, and tasty free food (2-3 times a week), among others good quality. The location is near to many landmarks, Hyde parks, Central station, Paddy's market, etc. It's surprisingly quiet for a Hostel located in main street. Plenty of rooms available, with...

This place was my home away from home for much of my time while travelling Australia. Made many friends here, and the staff were fantastic. The social element is great, there's always activists organised to bring everyone together. Cooking facilities were fine, and plenty of storage. The only downside was the that the bathrooms were frequently a mess. They had...

We had a bunk private room and it was fine! Was very quiet and huge fan kept it semi cool Location : under 5mins walk to paddy's market, central station. Yes it's dated but when in Sydney you need to be out doing things not staying in doors!

For the last leg of my trip, I have 1 night in Sydney so I decided to get a private room to have the liberty of organizing my stuff without worrying whether I'm waking up a roommate or something. The room was just basic but comfy. The shared bathroom /toilet was old and a bit leaky. The common areas are...

It's Good value for money if you are a backpacker staying in the heart of sydney's central business district. Security is a main focus at Maze as you have to sign in with your key card to be let through to the dorms, kitchen etc. The kitchen facilities were one of the best I had experienced. A fair amount of...

I've arrived at the hostel by myself and was looking to meet people to make it a better experience in Sydney for me. Luckily, I've found out that the hostel offers lots of great and fun events, everyday (!) that helps you to know other awesome people. Besides that, the hostel's location is right in the middle of everything, close...
