The showers were small and not the cleanest. The hostel is in a good location though. The lockers are in the main corridor, not in the rooms but you do get a key for them.


Really nice place whether you want to chill out or party with lots of people!!!

Cloud 9 is a nice hostel and I can imagine it would be a lot of fun during peak season. However, I went there near the end of season so there wasn't much going on. Also, the roof top terrace had to be closed pretty early and we were asked to be quiet and go outside to socialise which was quite annoying considering it is supposed to be a party hostel. But apart from that, it was clean, it had all the required facilities and staff were nice! In the end, I met some cool people and had a good time.


Great location, good price, decent facilities (the rooftop was excellent though). Skye was a riot and I had a lot of fun on the bar crawl. Only downside of the hostel is there was a lack of a true common area to meet people, only late at night would you met your fellow travelers on the rooftop. Free beach towels is a plus. They didn't have enough keys and I had to share a locker with my friend which was really annoying.


Cloud 9 is a good choice if you are going to Lagos! The spot was perfect, staff were super friendly and Skye's free pub crawl was a really fun night! Would recommend Cloud 9 for sure.


Very nice location! It is in city center. Close to all the restaurants and bars. Excellent pub crowling!


This hostel is right in the center of this vibrant lovely town less than 5mins walk for beautiful beaches. The hostel is small and really feels like a home from home. It has friendly staff with geat ideas on where to go, see and eat. The room we got had a terrace which was really great, the room had loads of room even for the messiest of travelers and was cleaned every day. Overall had an amazing experience here...if your looking for a fun hostel with great staff and excellent location its here.


We were sick during our stay at lagos, so got to know the hostel well. The staff are amazing, sky takes you to great bars on the free pub crawl, any questions are answerd rooms are clean so are bathrooms. Only issue would be the stove top which can be a bit tempremental and the only small lockers in the hallway, but never felt unsafe . amazing location, staff, atmosphere and rooms. Plus you cant go wrong in lagos.


Checked into this place for three nights and booked a fourth, every night is a bit of an adventure when the pub crawl gets going. A little off the main drag which is a good thing and the staff (Skye and Thiago) are simply awesome.


We had an amazing stay at the hostel! the people were friendly and the room was just right and great value for money! very happy would definitely stay there again!

I only stayed one night but the staff were great, the vibe was great and the location was prime.


Might be the same standard as most of the other hostels in Lagos; however, the standard in every other hostel we stayed at in other Portuguese cities was def. higher. Facilities were alright but nothing more, location right in the touristy zone can result in pretty noisy nights. My guess is that the Lagos-standard for hostels just isnt nearly the same as in Porto or Lisbon. Free Sangria on fridays is a nice treat though.


Great hostel in a great area, would stay there again.


Great location. Rooms are small. Atmosphere was good but nothing outstanding.


We love cloud9! The staff was alwais helpfull, the position is perfect and we had the opportunity to meet amazing people Roof top is the best part of the hostel!


Awesome terrace upstairs for drinking in the day


Good: Location. It's in the old town Bad: Noise. It's close to some bars and in the summer you will hear people talking till 3/4am.


Great place to stay and a really good atmosphere. Great location also. Would come back for sure.


I loved this hostel! Perfect location, great staff fantastic atmosphere especially with the rooftop. Ideal for solo travelers who are looking to make friends. Will definitely come again


Grouse location. Rooms are clean and comfortable, as are the bathrooms. Common areas are modern and well equipped. Balconies and rooftop have plenty of room and awesome views. The staff go above and beyond to make you everyone feel welcome and help you. Very social atmosphere, pub crawl is free, sangria nights are free, and are all good fun.
