I spent a great week with my girl. Dexter, Sophie and Sarah are very friendly and so efficient. There's an amazing atmosphere, you always feel at home. Magnificent people, relax but also parties! If you wanna surf is the Place to go, but also if you wanna have a good time in Lagos.

I loved this place! The staff, breakfast, BBQs...everything was great! If you go to Lagos and stay here you will not be disappointed. I recommend that you take their surf lessons as well! It was a lot of fun. I'm kinda picky when it comes to hostels/hotels so it was a relief to see that the rooms were very clean... More

The surf hostel was my favourite week of my 2 month long Euro trip- the staff were amazing and made us feel like part of the family right away. The breakfast was huge and they give you to-go bags for making sandwiches for lunch too! I'd DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone. The surfing was amazing as well! I'd go back... More

I spent three nights at this place and it has to be one of the best hostel! The team (Sophie, Dex and Sarah) are incredible and accommodating. You properly wont find a hostel which will provide you with homemade Morning Lunch and dinner / BBQ (Sophie is an awesome cook!)... The rooms are clean and they have an awesome pool.... More

Incredibly friendly and welcoming, we arrived to a hungover house from celebrations the night before but I have never seen such happy hungover people before. We were made to feel welcome and settled! Everyone at the hostel is very chilled and happy to help! Our room was a great size and was very clean. The kitchen was perfect for preparing... More

I only spent two nights at this hostel but absolutely loved it. The staff (Dexter, Sarah and Sophie) are three of the nicest, most chilled-out people you will ever meet. From arrival I was made to feel welcome, with Dexter offering to take myself and others from the hostel out for dinner and drinks! On the second night Sarah took... More

Very relaxed hostel, it's if you are home! I really liked they had a swimming pool, really nice for a cooling down. The food is really really great, the reviews here don't lie about it. Especially the cakes and cookies are good. Fine location, not 'wow'. Only thing: they were not so loyal to silence in the hostel; whole hostel... More

Incredible hostel. There's a great set up, very sociable place and Dexter and Sophie are cracking hosts. I did 4 days surfing and it was well worth it - all the instructors are experienced and get you learning fast. And aim to get there for a Friday night as the BBQ was spot on!

Super friendly place! Very clean and comfortable. It actually felt like staying at someone's house instead of a hostel. Sophie is amazing! Dexter is...ok I guess even if he roots for penalty faking teams. Seriously, this place is great and there is no way you'll regret staying there.
