Property Description

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

We are located a little further out of town because we are 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 will 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 nights 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.

    The photos do not do this place justice. Without hesitation the vibe here is perfect and beautiful. The friendliest hostel I have been to so far. Everyone is suuuuper laid back and chill. Huge surfer vibes. So many lounge areas to hangout by yourself or with others. Every night there’s a family dinner for 10 euros that a chef makes. Fresh pancakes every morning. This hostel felt like a big home and family and I can’t wait to stay here again. Oh and finally a hostel with good showers!!!

    In advance: This place is more for younger people to socialize and connect. HOWEVER, the hostel itself and the staffs are amazing. A fee has to be paid for the key. Great and calm area. Laundry shop is nearby (5-8min walking distance). The pool is lovely and not to mention the free facilities for doing yoga. The kitchen is well equipped. It is a great hostel and you can definitely have a chat with other travelers. In addition, you can do multiple activities offered by the hostel.

    Really enjoyed my stay at Bura Surfhouse. It was super clean and it has a really nice atmosphere with meals together and activities offered. They also have a bar which makes meeting other travellers really easy. The dorm room was safe and the beds comfortable. The only difficulty is limited plugs in the dorm room and no plugs beside the bed. I would definitely stay again.

    Great atmosphere! Plenty of hangout spaces to meet other travelers. They also offer tours and classes. Only complaint is that it’s located further out from city center (around 20 minutes walking)

    BEST HOSTEL EVER !!!!!! We loved it, the dorms were nice and cozy. The chilling spots and the pool were awesome. It was really big and comfortable, with not to many people. It’s by far the best hostel we had in Portugal and Spain!! The walk to the beach is however around 30 minutes, but the Ubers are cheap (4€). The 10€ diners were AMAZING and sooo worth it. Just great vibes and friendly people !!!!

    I loved this hostel and recommend it to everyone going to Lagos. The hostel is in a residential area and about a 15-20 min walk to the town, which I was aware of when booking. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful people I have met and just want you to feel welcome. They host family dinners 5x a week I believe which was a great way to meet all other travellers and have a fun social atmosphere. This place is fabulous, wish I could have stayed longer!!

    A really nice hostel. Even though a bit further out of town, the pool and beautiful views from the rooftop make up for it. Staff were friendly and the free breakfast was great. The only thing I would say is that whilst staying there, there were a lot of duo friendships rather than solo travellers, but that could’ve just been whilst I was there. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay.

    The facilities are great, the pool, the bar, the kitchen has everything you need and the rooftop has an amazing view and you can even see the ocean. I think the crowd is a bit more niche, mostly people there for surfing and for yoga and more towards the 30s. Not necessarily bad especially if that’s what you’re in Lagos for as well, but I would say a solo backpacker there only for a few days should probably be more towards town. The same goes for the location, if you’re there for those activities the locatio

    Great hostel. Staff was nice and helpful. Free breakfast was pretty meh (coffee was bad). The beds are good and stable. It was hot while I was there and there was little ventilation so the rooms were way too warm (not even any fans in most of the rooms). Bathrooms were a little small but pretty clean. The pool was great! The hostel helps you plan excursions to surf, boat, hike or yoga so that is nice ( need to book hiking in advance). It's a little far from the bars and beaches unfortunately.
