      Great - getting better. Review by Jonathan Edmonds

      With the recognised crisis in accommodation in Australia’s leadings major cities at present, a place like Maze Backpackers (of which I know no other like it) is an important solution. It offers the perfect balance of community, privacy and affordability. The general cleanliness has improved in my observation since my first stay nearly 12 months ago and I’ve been frequently staying here by choice ever since. The professional courtesy of the staff extends beyond what is being charged and I highly recommend the accommodation for all my stated reasons. However, not so much that next time I book here - it isn’t therefore booked out! (With a cheeky hee-hee). Regards...

      One of many...

      One of many… For an extended stay, especially in regards to the location for accessibility and choice of eateries, I don’t book anywhere else. Over the past 18 months I’ve noticed improvements made to the cleanliness of Maze and the staff are largely most hospitable.

      Those the opposite of who they think they are...

      Third stint over the course of the year. This time under very different circumstances. Mourning the last two - celebrating this most recent. A fourth coming up in about 3 weeks.

      A good place in Sydney

      A bit noisy in the night and so many people in this big hostel.. But it was so pleasant to have my own room with a rather comfortable bed for such a price. Toilets and showers are clean. Very well situated in the City. And the staff le friendly.
