“Great Hostel”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We traveled to Lagos without booking a room in advance. Luckily, it was the low season so we got a room to ourselves. Nice clean hostel, great kitchen and balcony. Some reviews say bad things about the bathrooms, but trust me, they are fantastic. They have just been replaced and are brand new. Free sangria fridays during the high season (June-Aug). The only bad thing I can say about this hostel is that the street outside can get kind of loud at nights, especially on the weekend. I am a VERY light sleeper, but it was manageable with ear plugs. We couldn't find the A/C, but then again, it was not the warm in May, and so we did not look very hard.

Stayed at Cloud 9 when travelling through Europe with a few friends.

The rooms were clean and the team at Cloud 9 were very friendly and welcoming.

Cloud 9 is within walking distance of great bars, restaurants and of course the beach.

Would recommend to stay there especially if you are working with the budget

Room Tip: If there are 3 of you travelling pay for an extra bed and you can have your own room and bathroom. N...

This hostel was perfect for my friend and I when we were in Lagos this August. Great location, in the heart of Lagos city. Nice and clean hostel and very friendly staff.
We loved the roof terasse and the nice view! The kitchen and common area was nice and functional.
We are planning on going back to Lagos next summer, and we are definatly going to stay at Cloud 9 again.

This summer I've stayed with 3 friends at the cloud9 hostel for 1 week. We had a great room with our own private balcony and bathroom. Our room was cleaned every morning!
The guy that welcomed us at the front desk was really kind. He helped us with finding the right trips, and his recommendations were well estimated!
Every evening, the girl from the hostel showed us around all the great pubs in Lagos. That was really fun!
There was a tidy kitchen were hostel guest can cook, and a great balcony at the top floor where you can have a drink and have fun with other guests. I would really recommend this hostel, it is the best hostel I've ever been ;)

I stayed at cloud 9 hostel for almost 2 weeks. It became more like a home for me. Tiago at the front desk was so helpful. Any question i had he would answer. I am now staying long-term in lagos and i know if i need anything, i will still be able to go to him for help. Skye took everyone on the most unforgettable pub crawls. Cloud 9 wouldn't be the same without here! The hostel was very clean, and is very well equipped. I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Lagos.

Had a really nice, but too brief, stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hostel was clean and there was plenty of place.
Our ensuite bedroom had its own balcony, which was really nice. Also, there was a terrace on the roof which had a great view of Lagos. It was also really close to bars, etc. Great location.
It's a shame there is no breakfast included, but there are cheap options nearby that were recommended by the staff.

Stayed here for two nights with my friend - hostel was clean, centrally located, friendly and helpful staff. My favorite part of the hostel was the rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Would definitely recommend this hostel to friends.
