Well, okay, create a 2D array (maze_rooms[10][10] for 10x10), and go
through each one and randomly set rooms into the array.  No two rooms
can be in the same array, and east/west/north/south are always set
as exits to the room beside it in that direction.  Implementing up
and down might be something completely different, though.  Still, it
could be accomplished.

I'm not a big follower of maze algorithms (that's how you spell it,
