Awesome hostel. Feels like a home more than anything else. Amazing pancakes for breakfast, chilled vibe. Awesome staff.
That's what a backpackers hostel should be like! We really enjoyed our stay. The staff and people were so friendly and helped us out with any question we had. We even got a great tip for a hiking tour at the algarve coast. Breakfast was good, showers were hot and they have a lot of facilities, though we couldn't use that much due to the cold weather. I definitely recommend this hostel!
Very friendly hostel with great staff. It is a little far out from town (10-15 minute walk) but it's manageable. The atmosphere was pretty good but I imagine it's absolutely amazing in summer. There was a deck and pool but it was a bit cold to go out there. The kitchen was good and nice common areas. Worst part was the beds which were extremely uncomfortable and I'm pretty sure they are meant for children because I didn't fit on them! Would definitely stay here in summer
Nice hostel, nice facilities, a lot of space to chill out, terrace, swimming pool, big living room, really great staff and good breakfast, clear and comfortable About atmosphere it's hard to say as we were after the season and there were little people. It's only a pity that it's not closer to the city centre. But generally I do recommend :)
The Bura Surfhouse was the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Staying off-season there were
They have a perfect accomodation. But I think it's way more better to spent your time in Bura Surfhouse during summertime. But still, very friendly staff.
Your staff were super. Pick up at bus station was much appreciated. Tips on restaurants and beaches/activities were also super. Thanks for helping to arrange bus transportation to the airport too. You really made us feel at home, and we loved the relaxed atmosphere.
staff are really nice! more like a huge house so makes you feel at home and very chilled out! would defiantly recommend!
great hostel with chilled out vibes and awesome staff...even if it rains!! highly recommended!
We had a wonderful stay ( mid of September), the staff was really nice and the roof-deck was so awesome. We enjoyed the barbecue and wine nights up there with all the nice people. I highly recommend this hostel to all who like a good, chilled atmosphere with really cool people.
This place was awesome, if a little difficult to get to. But its out of town location meant in our strolls we saw more of Lagos than the average tourist (or possibly even local). Anyway great place to stay. Make sure to try the surf school if you have any interest... never thought I would be able to surf but I was ok after just one day. Highly recommended
Brilliant hostel, chilled out staff, clean rooms and great atmosphere!
Alex was amazing!!! It had a great environment! It was very homey, which is nice when you're travelling. I definitely recommend this place if you're in lagos!
The atmosphere at the hostel is AMAZING, visitors and staff are all really nice and helpful. The lovely roof terrace gives you the most relaxed and laidback feeling. We were 5 friends traveling together, and all were very satisfied! Keep up the good work!

Hostel is different from what I am used to. Very community like atmosphere. Perfectfor people looking for fun, party and gettimg to know new people. Wouldn't recomend it if you stay for only one night. Staff was really friendly and open minded. Unfortunately there are not enough bathrooms for the amount of people that can stay.
This hostel was great! The people were super welcoming! As soon as I walked in, I felt a sense of being at a home away from home. I wish I stayed longer, but I only had one night. I will go back there again, the first chance I get!
After 3 months by far my favourite hostel. The owners Matt and Heather have done such an amazing job to make everyone feel at home. The staff are incredible people and really make an effort to make sure you are having fun. Perfect for solo travellers,this was my only segment solo and due to my experience it is now my preferred way to travel. Lots of daily activities on offer, beds comfortable and sleep was possible (rare in other hostels in lagos). Walking not an issue. Will be back definitely!
Amazing staff.... so friendly and helpful. They drove us to the bus station so we could make an early morning bus.
