Of all Hostels I've been to, this one is the dirtiest, there's only two bathrooms for the whole hostel, the rooms have no key, organization is poor, there's no one to properly clean the rooms (they do sweep the floor, but that really doesn't make any difference). Although the price included breakfast, breakfast doesn't exist, because the restaurant where it's normally served, is closed.
You deffinetley are getting what you pay for. For a cheap hostel and just a bed - this hostel does the job. Rooms are clean with fresh linen. No locks on room doors- making it not all that secure. The bathrooms are foul and really let's the place down. Courtyard is very small but you can socialize in the evenings if you want. Staff were as accomadting as necessary, however English isn't great!

Worst Hostel every. Unfriendly staff. No keys for the rooms. Only two bathrooms for 30 people. Bathroom and toilets were very dirty. Only ONE!! cooking field for the whole hostle. It's cheap but you wont enjoy your stay there. Spend a few more euros and you'll have so much more fun in Lagos. It's such a nice place to be, but not in this hostel.
Had a great time at Giga Bay Lodge. Located on a relatively quiet street in Lagos but still close to the action. Beds were really comfy and it was quiet at night. The rooms arent lockable and there are no lockers although you can give your valuables to the owner to lock up if you want. The bathroom set up by our room was odd (3 showers and 1 toilet in the one room with no dividers) but you just lock the door while in there so no one else can come in. Overall we would recommend Giga Bay!
The location is excellent, right in the middle of the town. the bathroom was not very cleN and the kitchen has no oven or botplates,only one electrical hotplate... That was very unconfortable! The ownersmoked all the time,that was very unconfortable.
Giga bay lodge is very kind of laid back, basic and not that clean. Don't expect much at all. The staff are really friendly and helpful though. Even though it was what it was, we had the absolute best time at this hostel, everyone was just great, we met so many people and all became really close. We needed up booking extra nights here for that reason. So if your up for some loose fun times, stay here I guess.
