Overview

Welcome to your fun and friendly home in Sydney: The Maze Backpackers. We bring you together over our free (yep, free) hot dogs, barbecue and chicken and rice nights (say hooray for your budget!). Oh, and don’t forget about pancake morning and our cheap weekly activities. If you’d prefer to chill, check out our common room, which has comfy seats as well as a book exchange. In the evening, join friends in the bar or head for the games room, complete with DVDs and a pool table. At our social hostel, it’s all about meeting like-minded travellers!

Location

You’ll find us right in the centre of the city, only a couple of streets from Hyde Park. If you’re coming from Sydney Airport, hop on the train for 15 minutes and get off at Central Station. From there, it’s just a 5-minute walk. There’s loads to do nearby – catch a show at the Capitol Theatre (2 minutes’ walk away), see the famous Sydney Opera House (a 35-minute walk) or take a half-hour bus ride to idyllic Bondi Beach.

Rooms and Dorms

When it comes to rooms, there’s plenty to choose from, including twin, single, double and triple privates if you’re travelling with your partner or a small group. Solo travellers looking to save cash can go for a mixed or female-only dorm. All rooms have shared bathrooms with towels included. The best part? Your bed will already be made up when you arrive with linen all included in the price – perfect if you’re getting in late.

Extras and activities

Tend to lose track of time in Sydney’s bars? No worries – we have a 24-hour reception and an overnight security guard, so there’ll always be someone to greet you when you come back. (Cook up a post-clubbing snack in our communal kitchen!) If you’re setting off to discover the city on foot the next stay, pick up your free map and plan your route using our free Wi-Fi before you go.

    Superb

    Good budget accomodation in Sydney. Great location and they hold a lot of socialising events for parties, drinking and food. I was staying there for a conference nearby so wasn't there to party and got a private room with my partner. Despite staying on a friday & saturday night, we had no issues with noise in our private room on the 1st floor. Would highly recommend. Staff were absolutely excellent. My only gripe is that the men's bathrooms could do with being updated.

    Good location, basic facilities (but for the cost you definitely wouldn’t expect much more). Always offering free things (drinks, good, events). Friendly staff!

    The price for the location was good, but be careful, the facilities and my room were full of cockroaches and insects. I had to leave quickly and I didn’t have the time to check out and gave them back their magnetic card so I didn’t get my $20 deposit back. I tried to contact them to know if I could have my money back if I send the magnetic card by mail but I didn’t even receive an answer to my email, shameful

    Not awful to crash for a night or two, wouldn't stay for much longer. Squeaky beds and paper thin walls, no outside space whatsoever. Lots of people living there long term makes it harder to meet people. Movie room and activities are good, grocery store and train center close by.

    My private single room was very damp and had a bad smell to it. Very hot rooms, there was no air conditioning apart from a small fan in the top corner of the room which did nothing. The smell of the room was disgusting and the dampness/heat made a very unpleasant sleep. Do not recommend staying in a single room.

    First I would like to say the front desk staff was wonderful. They were all very friendly and helpful. They allowed me to store my bags after checkout and even offered to let me use the shower when I came that evening to pick up my bags. The hostel is old and pretty dirty. My room was extremely small. Big enough for a twin bed, which was not that comfortable, and a chair, that was so stained and dirty I didn’t even want to put my rucksack on it. I was grateful the room had a small window

    When I arrived the smell in the whole building was awful and was for the whole time I was there. There were so many stairs even on the same floor so it was almost impossible getting a suitcase to the furthest room. Once inside the room it was disgusting, piles of peoples clothes covering the entire floor stacked up so I couldn’t put my case anywhere. Window was broken in the room. No socket nearby to charge my phone either.
