Property Description

It's not just the comfort and enjoyment of our guests that is important to us, your health and safety and that of our staff is paramount. That is why we are continuing our measures from last season to help ensure your stay is as comfortable and secure as possible.

* Your temperature may be checked at check in. .
* Reduced capacity in some of our dorms.
* Stringent cleaning and hygiene measures, especially in the bathrooms and kitchen (including hand sanitiser available throughout the hostel for guest use and obligatory use of face masks in the kitchen).
* Several practical measures to help make it possible for a 1.5 meter distance to be maintained throughout, such as: altered breakfast set up and limited numbers of people in the kitchen at any one time.

Whether traveller, adventurer or beach bum, coming alone or with friends - as long as you’re keen for a relaxed vibe with friendly staff - you’ll fit right in.

We’re located a little further out of town because we’re not just a bed: our Surfhouse is a family style villa complete with pool, in-house chef, rooftop terrace, and poolside bar. We offer the comforts of a home, but still within walking distance from the town centre, the beaches, and the nightlife.

The hostel has an open-plan layout with tons of natural light, spacious and fully equipped kitchen, plenty of outdoor seating, deck chairs for tanning by the pool, hammocks for lazy days, and a wraparound balcony perfect for breakfast in the morning sun.

Travelling alone? No big deal, you can easily meet like-minded travellers by joining us for our famous family style dinners prepared by our chef each evening, or by grabbing a beer at our poolside bar.

You’ll be part of the Bura family from the get go - we offer a free welcome drink upon arrival. We update our activities board weekly which details daily events and local tips on things to do, drink and eat in Lagos.

Not a night owl? No worries; our quiet location allows guests looking for a good night’s sleep to escape the hustle and bustle of town. We are a fun hostel, but not a ‘party’ hostel, so please bear that in mind when booking with us.

We can organise surf lessons, surf trips, yoga classes, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, wake-boarding, wine-tasting to our local vineyard, and a whole range of other activities through our 24 hour reception.

- Please note at Bura Surfhouse we have a strict over 18 policy.
- We have a lovely dog at the hostel, so please take this into consideration if you have any pet allergies.

    I spent three nights in this surfhouse and the staff was awesome, very very nice and kind people, loved them! We even went out for party in Lagos 🔝. Delicious breakfast with home made pancake cooked at the moment and a lot of other delights 😋 Very cheap surfboard rental also. Next time I’ll go in Lagos i wouldn’t check out for any other place to stay!

    This hostel was one of the warmest, most welcoming places I’ve stayed. The staff and other travellers are so kind and everyone says hello to each other! The room and bathroom were very clean and the hostel had taken measures against covid. The hostel is social and you’re guaranteed to meet people in the outside bar area or over breakfast. It’s a little far out of Lagos but is only a 20 min walk. Most of the beaches are within a 30 min walk so it’s very easy to get around! Loved it here!!

    Had an unforgettable time in the Bura surfhouse. - great staff, very helpful and friendly - beautiful pool and rooftop terrace - simple but cozy bar space & BBQ - simple but good surf rental & courses The only downside is the location which wasn't a problem for me since I had a car (parking in front of hostel) but without one it's definitely far away from the beaches and the city center. Main benefit of the location is a calm neighbourhood.

    The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was great. However the room I had had very little security. They provided a locker but there's no door to the room just a curtain so anyone could walk in and out and people did. Also it's situated right by the main door so all night I could hear the door going. I did mention this at the desk. I only stayed the one night, I would have asked to be moved if I'd stayed any longer.
