    The staff and atmosphere in this hostel were fantastic! Its was super chill and friendly, and movie nights were fun. Also a nice location, as it was an easy walk to the store or the beach. Would totally recommend!

    Loved my stay at RCS! I stayed in the private room which was roomy and comfortable. The hostel was clean and well maintained. Marlon was a great host who took us out around Lagos and made sure everyone felt comfortable and included. He was full of helpful recommendations and advice for the area. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Great Hostel, we stayed in the private dorm and it was like being in a hotel room. Staff are friendly and chatty. Lovely outdoor seating area. I feel the Tv area could be a bit more welcoming but the weather is too nice to sit indoors. Location is great 2 minute walk in to town & 10 minutes to the beach and train station. I would highly recommend this hostel would 100% stay again if I came to Lagos again.

    Great location with cheerful staff even in the off season! Offer blankets if you're cold and the dorms are small so not much room for noise! I enjoyed my stay!

    I have mixed feelings about rcs - I met lots of fun people here and I absolutely adore Marlon the manager, but I also had the worst sleep there cause the beds are super uncomfortable and creaky. I had great fun there though! Great for solo travellers since Marlon gathers up people to go for nightly dinners/movie nights/drinks.

    Very Good

    An interesting hostel. Could probably do with some money throwing at it, as the place felt a little tired and dingy. With it being out of season, it still had a good vibe and the manager for the most part seemed like a good guy. If not a little tired like the hostel it's self. But not a bad place and could be good in the high season for sure. All the people I met there were great. Thanks
