Am staying here now. Compared to my Lisbon hostel this is a step down. I like that it is not on a busy street and they say that they have this no noise policy but not true. I was tired out and went to bed at 11 and pretty soon a loud bunch came in. There are several rooms at... More

Stayed at Gold Coast Hostel at the end of my trip in May of 2014. Getting there was going to be difficult as my flight arrived in Lisbon an hour before the last bus would leave for Lagos. Luckily all went well and I arrived in Lagos at midnight, which they were able to accommodate for. Check-in went smoothly and... More

Gold Coast had absolutely everything needed in a hostel, big kitchen, rooftop terrace, lockers, chill room etc. Really nice and helpful staff made for a great stay. Quiet as well which was a big bonus for me.

The staff was friendly and helpful, and the hostel was clean and in good condition. This is not a party hostel - they had a silent after midnight policy to ensure that anyone who wanted it could get a good night's sleep. It was a bit of a hike originally to find and get to the hostel, but once you... More

Our group of 9 students absolutely loved Gold Coast. It was impeccably clean - the rooms, sheets, towels, and bathrooms. The kitchen was so nice, and the rooftop was great for hanging out and meeting other hostel guests. We were close to all the bars, restaurants, and beaches. Arthur gave us a map and explained where everything was when we... More

Hostel was in a great location, close to great bars, great restaurants and an easy walk to the amazing Lagos beaches. Staff were extremely helpful and room and general accommodation far exceeded our expectations. Would recommend this hostel to anyone!

I stayed here with my friend for a week while we were visitng another friend in Lagos who lives and works there. Great location. The owner is serious about keeping the hostel a no party zone, having us sign a contract with rules such as 'no vomiting' and others which was fine but we were also told that our friend... More

If you are going to Lagos definitely stay at this hostel. The people who run/own this place were fantastic. Whatever you need they will help you. The owner even waited outside for us to make sure we got in our taxi safely. The place was super clean. Even though this is not a party hostel the atmosphere was fantastic. The... More

Arthur was very friendly, the service was fantastic he didn't even give us a hard time although we were late checking out. We spent a few days at Gold Coast Hostel it's very close to the main city and lots of great places to eat nearby.

My friends and I spent 3 nights at Gold Coast recently and were incredibly impressed. The location is very good, close enough to both the town (and nightlife) as well as the coast and the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were very clean at all times. The best part about this hostel was the fantastic service. All hosts were very friendly... More
