Confusion about our booking on arrival and beds not being ready was made up by Will looking after us at the bar as the night progressed. Good vibes in the beer garden to get the nights rolling, great location - just a quick walk to and easy stumble back from the bars. Not far from the beach either


There are no outlets in any useable area. Only one bathroom for a lot of people. The lockers are so flimsy you might as well just leave your things out. Will the bartender is an awesome dude and the lounge area has a solid vibe but other than that this place needs some work.


Paid extra for a private room, which had no wifi, shower didnt work, staff were slow and unhelpful (however the english owners were great guys) , thought i was getting a double bed or at least 2 singles in my twin private with my girlfriend but we got bunkbeds. Not what we expected on arrival, wouldnt not recomend


Beds were really clean -- clean sheets, mattresses, etc. -- but the showers were just okay, and the rest of the hostel overall was grubby. However, the chill vibe of the staff and other people staying here was perfect -- far better than some other hostels in the area.

Cool hippy vibes at Shargi-Lagos. Stayed at 3 different hostels in Lagos and this was definitely my favourite. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the outdoor garden is a great place to chill. The other hostels I stayed at were pretty rough so this was definitely a nice oasis to finally stumble into. Would say a must stay if you are in lagos trying to avoid the Aussie party bro vibe that has taken over the town. Thats not to say this place isn't loads of fun because it definitely is.


Loved this hostel. Lagos in July is full of full-time partiers who go crazy every night. Shangri-Lagos was a good respite from all of the madness. There are images of Buddha all over the place and they burn incense. It's perfect if you want to party and have fun, but meet some more relaxed people and have a safe and clean place to spend the night. The garden is a wonderful place to recharge. Location is perfect - seconds away from the main strip, but quiet at night. Staff is helpful and friendly


Really nice staff, an amazing vibe... and we especially loved the garden! The rooms and bathromms are a bit too small for the price, in my opinion.


Overall a great vibe and great garden area but was disappointed by the false advertising - many facilities they claim to have they could not provide e.g. washing machine/laundry facilities, towels are not free, bbq, no wifi if you're not in the main building. There are better options in lagos that still have a great vibe while providing better facilities. No privacy in showers or locks on dorm doors.


We were in the second building across the street. No wifi in that whole building which was a shame. Pretty average facilities on the whole. Decent vibe in the main building and the garden area, but there are nicer hostels in Lagos.


Awesome staff, vibe was incredible and loved every minute of my stay. Definitely be back

The faculties weren't the greatest but otherwise everything else about this hostel was great. Would have no problem returning here


Good hostel for a lone traveller & anyone who wants to meet new people. It´s quite small which is good because your forced to meet people. Small dorms shared toilets & showers. Great atmosphere


Great hostel, great location and the staff were absolutely amazing. The garden is something else too. One of the best hostels I've stayed in throughout a year and a half of travelling the world. You'd be silly not to book here.


Really mellow place with a cool, surfy vibe. I would definitely return! The well-equipped kitchen and social common areas make it easy to meet people. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating too.


Had a great time at Shangri Lagos. I would definitely come back.


Had a nice stay, staff was very friendly, beautiful garden, cheap drinks at the the hostel bar and just a few minutes away from the nightlife center

The shangri-lagos is awesome. Every time you went into the garden there was someone to hang out with, incl. staff. I made friends with every staff member, even the night guy. They were all super nice and helpful with anything you needed. Will, the bartender was great, he took us on an impromptu pub crawl and told us where to go on other nights. The beds are beds, the rooms are rooms, but the atmosphere was great. There were lockers in the rooms but no locks on the door but didn't feel sketchy


We loved this place! It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Good showers, internet, a fantastic bar and outdoor sitting area. One of my favourite hostels ever.


Prefect hostel. Garden area is top notch. Staff are excellent. Ana the cleaner is very friendly and helpful. Will be back!


Great place Great atmosphere Great people we extended out stay 3 more days it's such chilled out place and the out door terrace is awesome! also kitchen had so many facilities and the bunks where bigger then usual which is always good!
