Location is too far away from the main city centre. Facilities are not up to the standard I am willing to pay for the price that was charged. Close to the beaches, however I would recommend to anyone staying in Lagos to stay in a higher rated hostel for the price you are going to pay, closer to the city centre and marina, and then walk over the beach during the day.


Had great time at Big Chill. It's like a home away from home. Truly. Location is perfect for the best beaches in Lagos and easy distance from town. Walk from the bus/train station is about 30min but easy. Beds are nice and sturdy. Showers and bathrooms are good!! Kitchens are well equipped!! And Paolo- one great guy!! Recommend!!


The hostel is located a bit outside of the town of Lagos, but close to the beach, where you can take an amazing walk along the cliffs. It has two large and well-equipped kitchens and enough bathrooms. The rooms are clean and there is a common room with a flatscreen TV, the owner said it was going to be renovated soon, but it's already pretty good as is :D. Although I was staying at Big Chill in winter, I've met a couple of nice people. The owner has been very friendly and helpful as well.
