Property Description

Maze is considered one of the largest backpacker hostels located in the heart of Sydney. Meet friends and get lost in this unique, heritage-listed building.
Experience the real Sydney by exploring all the tourist attractions close to the hostel. Some sights include the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Darling Harbour and The Rocks. Believe it or not all these attractions are a 15-20 minute walk away! (A bit longer if you ask our friendly staff for hidden gems along the way!)

Things to note:

All of our guests, International and Australian need a valid passport to check in. Please be mindful of this and if you have any concerns about it, contact our team of receptionists!

While we wish it was possible to provide all our backpackers with free WiFi, we choose to give you a better quality signal for a small fee! $4 will get you a nifty 24 hours on the web or if you want a longer connection we’ll give you 7 days for the price of 3! That’s $12 dollars for a whole week!

We do offer private rooms like single, twin and triple doubles, however if you are booking these rooms be mindful that we are still a backpacking hostel and all facilities are shared, including the bathrooms, washrooms and kitchen.

While there are many ways you can get to us, if you’re booking on Hostelworld for 3 nights or more you can hop onto a free shuttle service straight to our door! Or pay $14 if not. Depending on if you land at the Domestic Airport or The International Terminal, there are two pick up points:
Domestic: You will need to exit by baggage carousel 6. Please wait at the 'Bus & Coach Meeting Point'.
Call 'Sydney Shuttle' (+61) 02 9661 1170 and tell them you are at T2 Meeting point.
International: You will need to make you way to the “Bus & Coach Meeting Point” located to the left of McDonalds.
Sydney Shuttle operate from bays 11/12, please wait here.
If there is no one there you may call 'Sydney Shuttle' and tell them you are at bay 11/12 (Terminal 1 pick-up point).
Please note the shuttle service runs between 5 A.M. to 6 P.M.
If you arrive outside these times you can catch a train to Central Station where we are a 5 minute walk away!

Latest Review

" If you're looking for a good and cheap place to stay in Sydney, Maze is the right place for you. The hostel is 5 mins walk from Central station and from Museum station (here buses to Bondi beach). The place is very big and it's an actual "maze"! That's strange and funny! I had a single room, clean and with a comfy bed. The building is a little bit old but it has a strong character. Kitchen is very big, although I didn't have the chance to use it. TV room is super big and cool to watch a film! "
