Lagos4U Hostel
Ranked #4 of 140 Speciality Lodging in Lagos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I stayed at Joao's hostel with friends while traveling through Portugal and it exceded our expectations. The house itself is gorgeous, spacious, clean, and welcoming; and the fresh fruit breakfast in the morning never disappointed! Located perfectly in a residencial part of Lagos, just a short walk to the city center and Lagos' gorgeous beaches, made it nice to land somewhere quiet at night. Joao made a gem of a home for travelers and surfers. The personnel was super friendly, helpful and made us feel right at home. Next time I find myself in Lagos (which of course I will), Joao will be the first I call!

New, clean, comfortable and homely! Joao makes an effort to make your stay wonderful :)
He even came to pick us up from the bus station and dropped us for our kayaking tour.
The hostel is new and well maintained. It is a 15 min walk up a hill but for fitter people I'm sure this is not an issue (we Indians are not use to walking much).

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and comfortable!

We stayed 4 nights at the lagos 4 u hostel and didn't regret it for a single second. Joao is an excellent host who cares about his guests and creates a very familiar and cosy atmosphere. The rooms are commodious and clean, the bathrooms too. Breakfast is tasty and Joao even cooks dinner sometimes for his guests, it always tasted delicious. The neighbourhood is very quiet, but you reach the centre of Lagos in about 15 - 20 minutes by foot. We can only recommend this hostel to any traveller who looks for an affordable room in familiar atmosphere with a very nice host. Thanks for the good time!

We stayed in the hostel for a week and it was one of the best hostels we've ever been. It's really cosy and clean.
Joao helped us with everything we needed and was very friendly. If we're going to Lagos again we will definitely stay at this hostel again.
It was also a good location, not to far from the centre but peaceful at night.

We went to lagos and found this hostel. By far the best hostel, we have seen!the owner makes sure you feel welcome and gives good advice about lagos and what to do. Very luxery showers and a fantastic atmosphere! Feels like you're staying at a friends house. It was very cosy and we felt sad that we had to leave for portimao, but we will definitely come back!

It was just a pleasure to stay at that hostel with joao, the host. Joao is the most kindest (funniest as well) and caring host I ever met in a hostel. The hostel just opend a month ago thats why it was not fully booked. If you look for a cosy hostel with lots of outside areas, a big livingroom in a friendly atmosphere - that's the place to be! Joao will always try to do his best that you can fully enjoy your stay here! He sometimes cooked for us and gave us great tips what to do here in Lagos!

The philosophy: Come as guest and go as friends! I indeed made friends there!

I HIGHLY recommend this hostel. Its worth the money!!

Joao, thanks again for your kindness and help. It really enjoyed my stay and your accompany!

This place changed my idea of hostels completely - stunning, homely and immaculately clean. The place used to be owner João's family home and as a result has all the comforts of home. Bath tubs, bean bags, sound systems, balconies and pool tables can be found in this hostel. João is very welcoming and will help you with anything you need. The hostel is close enough to the centre that it is easy to get around but far enough that it is nice and quiet at night, also the two cheapest supermarkets in town are a matter of minutes away on foot. We have stayed here twice and will definitely be staying here again in the future! Recommend to anyone
