Rooms to fit everyone’s budget

The super-sized building accommodates over 200 guests. Maze Backpackers offer private rooms with single, double and triple beds. You can choose to stay in a mixed dorm room with 4, 6, or 8 beds, or you can stay in a small 4-bed female or male only dorm. Each room comes with a couple of fans, a window with either a street view or alley view, and your own keyless entry card. Lockers are located on the 2nd floor and can be rented for 10.00 AUD (7.44 USD) a week. The price for the rooms ranges from 28.00 AUD (20.83 USD) for a mixed 8-share dorm to 111.00 AUD (82.57 USD) for a private room with three beds. To get here you can book a shuttle from the airport directly to the hostel through Maze Backpackers; at 12.00 AUD (8.93 USD) each way, it’s cheaper and faster than taking the train.
