    My boyfriend and I were only meant to stay at the Shelter for 3 nights but HAD to stay longer. We cancelled the rest of our plans and stayed for a whole week! Everyone working here is so lovely, just the kindest people. Andre, Lea, Antonio and Luca (the cutest pup in the world), will make you feel like family. The best hostel I have ever stayed in by far! Everything they do is with thought and care. Location is perfect, very clean, and so much more. Thank you for a very special week xxx.

    Hands down best hostel I’ve come across, I was meant to stay only 4 days and extended another week. The vibe was amazing and made you feel really at home n like a family. I struggle a little bit with anxiety and didn’t get it once while being there as the staff made everyone feel 100% comfortable and inclusive. I don’t think I’ll ever find another hostel like this and I’ll 100% be back for sure. There’s not a bad word I could say about it, Be sure to ask Andre if he likes bread ;)

    Fantastic hostel it’s like your at home! Nice clean and the hosts are amazing Easy walk into town/beach which is like 10 mins max The backyard is nice and awesome for the bbq and chilling out and meeting other travellers. There are other hostels closer into town but are much more expensive and Lagos is small so it doesn’t matter being that little bit further out They also do a pub crawl and set you up with maps, tours, recommendations etc Luca the dog was beautiful Highly Recommend!

    One of the best hostels I've ever sayed in. The hospitality from Andre and co were second to none, it feels like you're just staying at a mates place rather than a hostel. The vibe is amazing, location is great, the house is great with plenty of chill out areas (loved the dojo out the back). I didn't want to leave this place and might change my travel plans to come back. Make sure to ask Andre if he likes bread.

    Very Good

    The hostel is a house in a residential area. The couple that run the hostel are really lovely and Luca the dog was adorable! The cooking facilities are really good and it had a very relaxed atmosphere. My only problem was that I was staying in the top dorm, which is above the living room and you can hear everything! I got woken up at 2am from people talking loudly and watching tv. The bathroom was also really old, no soap provided and no hand towel either.
