Great hostel in the old city center of Lagos. It was easy to find and I was welcomed by really nice staff. The room was a comfortable 4 bed dorm with a sink in it to brush your teeth etc. The staff was friendly and the living room/balcony were nice places to hang out between the beach and going out. Super close walking distance to bars and the beach. The staff even gave me a few recomendations for bars and places to eat and I ended up partying with them. Ill stay here again with no hestitation.

Volunteers here were amazing! Very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is a party hostel and while we were there every guest was very ill. There were people sleeping on the couch in the common area, the wifi rarely worked, and there is no air conditioning. Would not stay again.

The hostel itself was nicely set up. The rooms were clean and felt homey. The owner would come by regularly herself to make sure we were doing ok and that our room/washroom was clean. The other staff was also accommodating, informing us about the best beaches, restaurants etc. location was great for everything: beach, restaurants, night life, bus/train station. It has a very social feel. Overall a good time, but it was one of the more expensive hostels

A beautiful little hostel with a very family feel. We all became good friends and drank together before heading out. Maja is an absolute gem, so lovely and willing to do anything to make your stay unforgettable. Some of the other staff were a bit clueless however. The intimate setting of the hostel makes you feel like your walking into our home which is nice.

Only stayed a night, but people were very kind. Maja was very nice and made some awesome suggestions for food. Beds were clean, but didn't have much space. The space was pretty cramped in general. Big lockers, but bring your own locks.

I wasn't too sure what to expect when staying at the old town Lagos however this place stole my heart. It is in a fantastic location with friendly and helpful staff. It is tidy with a great kitchen space and common area. I would not stay anywhere else in Lagos. Most of all I felt at home, loved it!! Lana

Old Town Lagos was definitely one of the better Hostels I had the pleasure to stay at during my adventures around Europe. Not only is it a clean hostel and good value for money but its the staff and Atmosphere that really makes this place. If you are outgoing, like to meet people and like myself travelling on your own then this is definitely the place to stay!!. Like most hostels its a younger crowd but for me being 29 was spot on for myself. I will definitely be staying at Old Town again!

Nothing bad to say about this place! Much prefer smaller hostel like this one where you can make friends with everyone in the living room and have drinks on the balcony in a chilled out environment before heading out. Good location, nice WI-FI, friendly staff - everything is excellent

Nice and cosy. They don't have any Organised activities and when I asked I was told to do the kayaks. Hard For solo traveller but the drinks in the lounge made up for it.

Atmosphere in the hostel is really amazing. Staff is as good as it gets, they will help you in any way possible. Maybe isn't the best looking hostel out there, but if you are looking for a real hostel experience, this is it. It can get a bit loud on the streets at night, but they give you ear plugs if you would need them.

Had a blast will be back again! Great people!
