Lagos Youth Hostel is perfectly situated near the center of the city and close to the train and bus stations. The rooms on the street side are very noisy all night and as there's no AC, you'll likely keep your window open. The staff is very nice and will try to help you with everything you need. The common toilets... More

I stayed there only two nigths, for it it was okey. I wouldn't like to stay there longer. Good location, cheap, internet connection, lockers so you can keep your stuff safe. It has all the basics you need and basic standard.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in July 2012. The hostel is very well located, very central, and well run. It is, however, a youth hostel, so don't expect standards of a 5 star hotel! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean but not very modern. The basics were there. The... More

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!!!
