One of the worst hostels I've ever been to. Beds were dirty, sheets were full of hair and little insects, everything was so dirty in that room. The price is not even so low, considering that sleeping in those beds was like a nightmare, and breakfast is not even included, Moreover beds are extremely noisy,you can't even move without waking...

When booking at lagos escape try and get in the private rooms. In a different location closer to the beach its a great vibe and the night watchman Paulo is awesome and very helpful. With only 5 rooms in the private housing spot its great for drinking before you head out and cruising during the day (we had a good... More

We were a couple so had one of the private rooms in a different location to the main hostel. Luckily we had the room with an ensuite which included the rooftop terrace. Good kitchen which we shared with two other private rooms. Hostel management were very helpful when our booking got mixed up and were very accommodating. Omelettes for breakfast... More

Really cool place to stay as its very central yet far enough away from the noise of the bars if you decide to have a night off partying then you can get to sleep ok. The only noise is in the morning from school kids which isn't great if you are hungover. My 4 bed dorm room was 20€ which... More

We stayed overnight at Lagos Escape Hostel on our way to Aljezur. Having read such positive reviews on this forum I was a little disappointed. The hostel admittedly had a prime location, however it was definitely nothing special. The rooms were cramped, and the sink in the room was broken and leaking. The showers were pretty poor with a urinal... More

Great location and service but was quite noisy. If you are the type of person that needs a good shower, I'd steer clear of this place. No pressure and the toilet situation wasnt fantastic. Staff were really friendly and helpful and would recommend staying here.

This hostel has amazing deals for private rooms. They are separate from the main hostel, but it is clean, secure and comfortable. They have WiFi and a communal kitchen and living room. The location was great for us because it was close to a lot of attractions and restaurants, but in a pretty quiet area. It was also close to... More

We spent one night in lagos escape hostel. The location is just perfect: in the old town center, surrounded by bars and restaurant and at few minutes walk from the beach. The bathrooms are clean. The breakfast is served on the terrace: coffee, tea, milk, cereals, jam, butter, cheese, juice... and a tasty omlette :D If you intend to stay... More
