“Surprisingly quiet”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

Looking for a bed for one night and because it was not high season, I was placed in a shared room with me the only occupant. Staff is friendly with directions and parking suggestions.

It is located inside the city walls and a short walk to most of the restaurants.

Free WIFI worked without being dropped.

This is really the cheapest hostel I have stayed in, but the rooms and amenities are more like a hotel than a hostel. The best thing is ensuite bathroom. Also, the staff are friendly and the location is too good. Thumbs up!!!

I loved this hostel and would recommend it to anyone! The staff was amazing and best breakfast so far! It´s only a short walk to the beach. Plus it´s so cheap!

This was not a nice hostel. The inner rooms might be better but it's located right by a few very noisy bars so sleep is not an option if you're near the street. If you're not interested in sleeping at all however, this might be a great hostel for you..

Reviewed 25 May 2009

Situated in the old town of Lagos, the youth hostel is ideally located for all the great bars and restaurants. Some of the staff have been working there for over a decade and the welcome they give all visitors is legendary. Current prices are 12 Euros a night including breakfast for a four person dorm room. They do have a few twin rooms and as these are very popular it is best to book well in advance.
A central courtyard is used by all as a meeting place and a great chill out location for a bottle of wine. A Kitchen is available with fridges and a bbq. All in all a great spot for the budget and safety conscious.
