One of the best hostels I've stayed in during my 7 month pilgrimage.. The kayaking and cliff walks offered are brilliant.. The hostel is in the perfect location to get to the beach, restaurants, bars etc. & creates an excellent vibe itself, depending on what you're into. The kitchen is well equipped & the breakfast is satisfying. Beds are comfortable with lockers in each room. Still, the BEST part about this hostel is Nicky & Hugo.. Actual legends.. Can't thank them enough for their hospitality!
We really enjoyed our stay. We extended from two to five nights. The atmosphere Nicky created was amazing. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and having a great time. The hostel was very clean and the relaxed, social vibe makes it a great place for solo travelers as well. We will be back!!
Had a great stay, all the staff and guests here were super cool and fun, especially Nicky and Hugo :) Thanks for the great kayaking and for introducing me to the Big Lez Show! I'd definitely recommend this hostel, especially to solo travellers. It's very easy to meet people and everyone is super friendly, the hostel has a great vibe.

Had a great stay here. Hugo and the staff really made it a welcoming and fun stay. Only complaints are the night staff had a tendency to fall asleep and not let you in right away if you came back late because they fell asleep on the job. Then the beds are really creaky flimsy metal beds. Overall I'd stay again and recommend it to others.
Hands down the best hostel I've stayed at. This place feels like home and will feel like your leaving family. I've stayed here 3 times. Each time is a new experience but all equally as awesome. Thanks to Nelson and Hugo for the amazing summer and Autumn. If you stay in Lagos this is the only place to stay.
Old Town Hostel is a great olace to stay. Hugo is just awesome. He runs this place, always having good advice on what to do. In addition to that he offers, organizes and leads walking tours, barn fires, kayaking tours and more

Had an awesome stay at Old Town! Hugo and the team were really passionate about making sure everyone had a good time. I added another week on my original 5 night booking! So easy to make friends, loved the drinking games and movie days. Felt like home. Thanks team!
Coming to Old Town Hostel was the best decision I made when I came to Lagos. I missed my bus from Faro to Lagos and they were so accommodating and let me push my reservation. I met some of the best people in the hostel who I'll definitely keep in touch with. It's the best combination of awesome events and being able to sleep at night! Hugo who runs the hostel is a gem. He makes you feel right at home once you arrive and will make your trip 100x better.

Hugo´s a legend. Made so many good friends here:)
very nice and sociable place light sleepers might have a problem as there are several bars just next door. If you wanna meet people (in my case, shitloads of Ozzies ;-) ) it is a very good place with activities and guitars and Wii etc
Excellent location. Friendly staff but a bit slow. Hugo was awesome - as usual. Attends to you the moment you go to him and fixes your problem. The other guy also helped us get a kayaking tour. In that sense, the staff is VERY helpful. It's a congested cozy place. I was in a 5 mixed bed dorm or something.. I got a mini bedroom to myself. But the hostel was very noisy! Too much noise - couldn't sleep. But, a fun hostel.. would love to go back again
This place is incredible! The facilities and everything are great, but it's the staff that make this place truly magical. All the staff were so helpful, it made it feel like just being at home which is great when you are travelling! Special shout out to Hugo and Nelson, you guys are awesome!!!
Old Town Hostel is an absolute blast. Hugo makes this hostel happen, from cave tours to Wii drinking games. The entire hostel is on one floor, so you get to know everyone really well, some even start to feel like family. Common room is a touch small, but they have plans to make it bigger. Great view in the morning over the bay. I cannot recommend this hostel more, definitely one of the best I have ever stayed in. Thanks guys!
Such a good atmosphere, amazing staff. Would definitely stay again!
Amazing hostel! Fantastic atmosphere!! Hugo is amazing, there is never a dull moment in this hostel! Loved it so much I extended my stay and came back for round 2! Love you Hugo
Awesome spot! Not your fancy name-brand hostel but still an awesome place. Hugo creates a great vibe in the hostel and works hard to get everyone involved with games and activities. He goes above and beyond to make sure you have fun. He even joined us all out for dinner on his night off. It was located so close to the beaches but also in town! Would definitely stay here again & have recommended it to all my friends!
Hugo is awesome!!! Rooms and bathrooms are clean, there were different activities every night! Staff really makes an effort to make you feel like you are part of a family! I had a great time there!!! Recommend!!!
