I've stayed here twice and I really can't recommend it highly enough. Alex is an incredible host who knows the best places to eat and drink in Lagos. Stayed in the bungalow and it was awesome. Such a relaxed place. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful - it's perfectly located in a lovely part of town. They also are also... More

With very clean, very nice rooms, this guesthouse is close to beaches as well as the old part of Lagos town but in a very quiet street. That means: Great starting point for anything you want to do during the day, because you get a good night's sleep. On arrival, we got great tips on where to go and where... More

Besides a difficult situation with a double booking on my part which was dealt with when we arrived, this guesthouse leaves a lot to be desired. It has a 1979s feel. It is cold and sterile with very little comfort and lacks any atmosphere whatsoever. The breakfast was, however, lovely (meats, cheese, cereals, bread & yoghurts) but the kitchen area... More

This is a revenge review. Guests Colleen and Eoghan made a duplicate reservation, which they refused to cancel till the day they left. They were upset because we wanted to charge them the late cancelation penalty, and they tried every thing they could not to pay this penalty. After a long, senseless argument, i offered to lower the penalty, and... More

Very welcoming atmosphere, with knowledgable, caring hosts. We had the Armona Room, which is a spacious, nicely furnished double ensuite situated in an extra bungalow in the garden - used to be the pool and billiard room and has been newly constructed in 2012. The garden was our favorite place to eat and chill out. The house was extremely clean... More

Had an amazing time at the Flow house. The accommodations were clean, safe, comfortable and very welcoming. Most comfortable beds I had in a month traveling around France, Spain, and Portugal!! Very affordable for what you get: spacious and clean rooms, breakfast every morning. Also loved how Alex (the manager) recommended activities and local restaurants to not miss. I made... More

Flow House was much more then we expected. The house is lovely and the rooms are perfect for longer stays. We have been traveling for 3 months and this was by far the best breakfast on offer at a guesthouse. The owners are warm and incredibly helpful, full of useful information about Lagos.
