Well we LOVED IT and loved the staff. We couldn't ask for a better friendly atmosphere, and a great place to spend our time in Lagos. The kitchen facilities, the rooms, the hostel, the staff, it was all amazing. They even picked us up from the train station. They made us feel so welcome and gave us lots of suggestions, and we felt like a family. Definitely stay here you won't be disappointed. Thanks for everything Bura Surfhouse. Love two Canadians Jordyn
When i booked in January the website said that the hostel pick you up at train- or bus station. I mailed to the hostel. No answer in 14 hours. Had to take a taxi, Telephone number had changed since I booked. Couldn´t reach the hostel. When I was going to pay they tried to charge me 30 % more than the price was when I booked. Had even some trouble to get my taxi money back. Security: It´s safer to have your stuff under the bed, than in the lockers. Still Nice staff, confused and confusing
I had an amazing time at bura! Such amazing staff and chill atmosphere.
Awesome hostel. Feels like a home more than anything else. Amazing pancakes for breakfast, chilled vibe. Awesome staff.
Wow. This is a special place. Like a big comfy home. Where to begin? The immaculate pool? The rooftop terrace with amazing sunsets? The pool and ping pong tables? The multiple decks, lounges, and hangout spots? The fully equipped kitchen? The impossibly chill and welcoming vibe? Probably the place to start is the staff. Genuine, friendly, helpful. This place is sincere, and you can feel it from the ground up. You'll likely stay longer than you intend! I did. Amazing place. Highly recommended.

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!
