The Staff is very nice and helpful. The hostel is clean and the small Breakfast (we booked it before) was very very good in comparison to orher Hostels. Not only toast and cereals, you get much more. The only thing is the Location. It is quite Far to the City center and to the beaches.We Walked alot but we got Used to it. All in all it was a very good experience. But please: do something that you Do not have to hold the shower the whole Time.
Ocean view was great, breakfast especially was incredible!!!! Prices for food and wine were more than reasonable! Pool area was nice to relax. The only problem was getting there, the directions on hostel world are terrible and the email we got said taxi from the bus station was 6€, we got a taxi to the bus station when we left and it was 10€. It also said on hostel world that there was 3 computers available for guest use...however there is not. The staff were super friendly and accommodating :)
Enjoyed my stay here, hostel has everything you need. Breakfast included (fantastic!! All you can eat), pool towels bar food (cheap). Not ideal if you are wanting to cook your own food. Close to beautiful less crowded beaches. 20 min walk to town you will get a good nights sleep here. People complaining can see the location before they book. Not a party hostel, more relaxed homely feel.
First of all, the hostel picture is photoshopped. No real ocean view here. The place itself would make for a really nice hostel, it has a pool, a rooftop and a nice common area. But all of this is useless as the atmosphere is killed by the hosts and an excessive amount of rules to everything. This is not a traveller's place and it is so sad as it had he potential to be one!
When you arrive you are greeted with smiling faces. Everyone was so nice and very lovely during breakfast time. There algarve fresh squeezed orange juice was my favorite! The hostel is more of a hotel. It wAs about a 10 min walk to the beach and about 30 min walk to the city. Overall it was a great stay and a great nights sleep.
Oh yes, there are a lot of excellent smilies, but after a 5 night stay i know about what i'm writing. Ocean view is realy a place to feel at home. Situated in a quiet neighborhood with easy access and lots of parking spaces. Beaches and city/old town ARE in walking distance. I can't understand young people complaining about this few minutes walks. You can get many extras at realy fair prices, even at the bar. The staff is LOVELY and helpful. Think there's no better in lagos! Like to come back!!!
It would be nice to have a kitchen to use. They do offer cooked food, however it's hard to prepare meals for every person's preferences (we are vegetarian and there was only meat). Location is good - outside of the city center but still close to it. However, there's a massive construction site next to Ocean view. It's a bit noisy and stuff
