We had a very good time at Cosimo's ! Accomodations are quite simple, very clean and safe, but you really feel like home. Furthermore, the atmosphere is fantastic thanks to Cosimo who is very generous and devoted to his guests. He cooks sometimes, especially his own Itilian specialities, and if you stay at least a few days, you can use the washing machine. In a nutshell, we wanted to stay three days, and we finally spent 6 fabulous days there, which was not enough. It was our home ...


Great hostel in a very convenient location. Short walk to the beach, bars, restaurants etc. Very friendly owner although it is definitely not a party hostel.


The hostel was the home of the owner of a few other persons, as well) and he was renting out his extra rooms for a pretty high price. There wasn't the free breakfast promised, and "free laundry" meant that you were able to do your laundry in owner's washing machine if he was doing his laundry at that time. The rooms were clean and location was,quite good, but i was almost impossible to find (no directions) and the locks didn't work. The owner was telling "stories" of his previous guests' sexlif

The Hostel is great, Cosimo is wonderful host, location is excellent and is very clean.


Thanks for having us!


Cosimo is the best host I ever had. the retired and decided to open the place just for the fun of it, not so much to earn money (that's why the price is so low); he also lives there, so he makes sure the place is real cosy and functional: from the Internet working well, to nice showers, plenty of drinks, etc; among other things: he for sure goes well beyond anybody would expect of him. the only (minor) downside is that he tends to engage in long rantings; but that comes with the territory.


The owner(Cosimo) friendly, the facilities are not the best but you do not need them due to the great atmosphere!!


Not the standard party hostel you would expect in Lagos and what a welcome change. It is like a small home away from home. Cosimo is the dad of the house and will go out of his way to make the stay in Lagos memorable, comfortable and enjoyable. Excellent outdoor area where you will meet everyone of the other housemates. Close walk to everything and the best place to explore the city of Lagos and beyond. Booked 2 nights and stayed 5. Cosimo is a star!


Cosimo made this hostel the best! The hostel was great overall, and even better because of the enthusiasm and hospitality of Cosimo. We would choose this place over any other hostel in Lagos.
