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

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
