    The Shelter is incredible! This hostel is a beautiful family’s house, and the family makes you feel right at home. I felt so safe and everyone staying there was lovely. There’s free breakfast, 4 min walk to the beach or grocery, a very nice backyard, and Lagos is a gorgeous area! As a solo female this was the ideal place to be. Definitely stay at the Shelter if you’re in Lagos.
