Very new hostel in Lagos. Our room, i think it was the "melon room" (a room for 2 persons), was very clean and bright. The location is central and perfect to discover lagos or start a trip. It´s only a five minute walk from the bus terminal and a ten minute walk from the train station. The staff is very friendly and uncomplicated. it´s only a little bit expensive for a hostel, but you get new and clean rooms!

Verrryyyyy gooooood cheap hostel!!!!! :) thanks you very mutch. Xxx


We didn't expect nothing special, but when we arrived to the hostel it turned to be a really nice place. All rooms and bathrooms are new. It's stiuated in the touristic centre of the city, around you can find a lot of restaurants, bars...Therefore evening and nights are a little bit loud. Downstairs there is a cafe/bar runned by the same owner. It's a really popular place, always almost full of clients. It's a good place to eat breakfast, lunch or stay during the night.


Small, but very nice rooms, nice café/ bar downstairs. Location is perfect - right in the centre of the city (it is loud in the evening and night though). Thank you!


Originally we planned to stay just 3 nights at Bora Dormir in Lagos, but ended up staying 2 weeks! After seeing the pictures online of this guesthouse I had low expectations but when we arrived, I was smitten! It's a really cute place with an excellent atmosphere and it's just steps from the main square in town, above one of Lagos' best cafes. I would go back there in a heartbeat. Oh, and the price is awesome.


Very nice location, a quiet street but only 2 minute walk from the restaurants,bars. The beach is also really close. Small, but clean en cosy rooms. Nice staff, and beneath the hostel there is a juice bar and a restaurant with good breakfast and tapas runned by the same owners.

The rooms are gorgeous, exactly what we were looking for, however they didn't have any air con or fans so the rooms got really hot. Everything is extremely new, bathrooms could be cleaned a little more frequently, however they were fine. The staff were really friendly and the owner also has the cafe down stairs which is a bit of a hub. There is no wifi, you do need to go to the cafe downstairs, however if you are in a room facing the cafe you can pick it up. Overall we had a fabulous stay.
