Where is the nearest grocery store?

There is a HUGE supermarket which is so close to us! Just turn left out the door, walk up to the lights, keep walking straight ahead into World Square and you’ll find COLES located downstairs. It takes you less than a minute to get there! Just pick up a zip back from the check out to store your items easily in the kitchen.

What time is check in & check out?

Check in is daily from 2pm (we need time to clean the place it's very BIG) & check out is before10:00am. While every effort is made to have your room available at this time, during high occupancy and peak periods there may be delays. We do provide free storage facilities, so you can start exploring Sydney or wait in our TV room & chill out*. Check out is before 10am, we do not have late check outs but you are welcome to extend another night depending on availability. 

*You are in the best city in the world so we would hope you want to head out to see Sydney, it's more attractive than staying indoors.

We have a very large kitchen, it is a great place to meet new people whilst having a cook off.  All cutlery and plates are provided. We just kindly ask that you wash them up and don’t take them to your room.  We have fridges available, just buy a zip up bag from Coles (the BIG supermarket) to store your items.

I’m travelling on my own, is it easy to meet new people?

Ha Ha of course! Maze caters for the individual traveler, let our friendly check in staff know you are a bit shy.  We’ll point you to our Entertainments Hosts that will ensure you are welcomed with open arms, WE LOVE HUGS!
