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

A friendly and well equipped hostel, in the old town but just outside of the noisy busy area- still within easy walking distance of the restaurants. For self caterers, a well equipped kitchen in which everything works and a supermarket 5-10 minutes walk away. Ask the owner about his tasty home made organic wine [ 4 euros/bottle] and his piri...

Great time at end of season (Around Nov. 5th). Plenty of room in kitchen, fridge, terrace - especially when there were only 10 people staying in the hostel. The owner was incredibly helpful when a fellow traveller fell quite ill. Good location! Very clean!

Very clean, very central hostel in Lagos, Portugal. My sister and I have been coming to Lagos since 2009 and stay here every time. It's without all the hoo haa of the Rising Cock, which allows you to get amongst the party of downtown Lagos but sleep in clean conditions. Staff are friendly, Lagos itself is one of my fav... More

This is a very quiet hostel, and not a party hostel in any way. We stayed in a private room, which is located in a separate building from the main hostel. I think there might have been one other group staying there but we didn't see many people in our building. There was a large kitchen and dining area as... More

From the train station, it's a 20 minute walk to the Gold Coast Hostel; it's in a great location in the old town of Lagos. We stayed in a private room (ensuite), which is in a separate building from the main hostel. Our room was large, spotless, and perfectly cool with AC. The wifi connection was excellent enough for us... More

We stayed in a private room with private bath. Room was very small for the price. We were also in a different building than the main reception building so that made checking in, bringing passports, checking out, getting info, using computers, etc. a bit of a hassle. Location was good- away from the noise of the main square but still... More

After a party hostel, I fled to Arthur who gave me a bed immediately and greeted me very warmly in his hostel. This one is very comfortable and a place where you can get a goodnight's sleep or you can go into town within two minutes and party there. It's up to you. You can do both and enjoy Gold... More

Enjoyed staying at the Gold Coast hostel, incredibly friendly staff. Always willing to help you out or point you in he right direction. Good facilities, lovely terrace to enjoy the evenings on with drinks as meet others. Highly recommend just make sure you have instructions on how to get there prior to arriving in Lagos not easy to find!
