Very kind and helpful staff! Also a perfect location right close to the most beautiful beaches and just a short walk to the center of lagos. However the hostel is overall dirty and rundown. The entrance area with the yard is not really welcoming ... only cool place was the chill room right next to the check-in. I definitely expected more for that price.


Pictures on the website are quite misleading, the hostel is quite old and dated.

Awesome, chill hostel! Not many people there when I went but it was just after busy season. A little bit of a walk from city centre but then you are closer to some of the nicer beaches. Staff was great, especially Kaz!


Big chill was awesome! Great location 10 minute walk to town and 10 minute walk to amazing beaches. Lee was very helpful and always up for a laugh! The other staff were always friendly and happy to help. Great place to chill or go on the bar crawl on Wednesday and Saturday nights. Great kitchen for cooking and doing your own thing and we had a BBQ one night which was nice as well. Would stay here again! Would recommend this place!


First time at a hostel, and it was a great experiance. Staff were awesome!


The place was really nice, even if I didn't like some of the people who worked there. Good position, in 10-15 minutes you are in the centre of lagos.
