    I have been to this hostel twice and both times it has been the best weeks of my life. Helping me meet life Long friends. Andre is the best host there is, himself and the family have an ability to make everyone feel at home and generate an atmosphere like no other. After an injury I incurred the family treated me like there own child and took care of me going beyond there duty to make sure I was ok. Can’t reccomend this hostel enough, Lagos is beautiful but this hostel makes the city for me. 🤙

    The staff was super friendly. Met some amazing people. The dog is the best part. Cleanliness was a little issue. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Dustbin was full so many times but nothing done about it. Breakfast was decent, very basic. Backyard is beautiful. Hostel is far from the station however centre isn’t that far. And there is a spar closeby for grocery shopping.

    The staff there was really nice, but it was really dirty, the water wasn’t working and for this money it was quite expensive.
