This is a great little venue. Keeping in mind it is cheap and that your not going to get the best facilities for what we paid, it was clean, safe, friendly, helpful and very well located. The two staff we interacted with were very helpful and friendly. We weren't there in peak season so that may have been the reason... More

The people who run the hostel are so nice and kind!! We stayed for two nights. The hostel rooms and bathrooms were SO clean - impressively so for a hostel! Crepes in the morning were also delicious. It was getting close to the off season so it was quieter than usual probably!

I stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. The staff were all friendly and helpful at all times. The room was clean and comfortable and the facilities were all perfectly adequate for my needs. The hostel is also very well located in Lagos. Thank you to all the staff!

We stayed here for 3 nights in a female dorm. The beds were clean. We got a shower towel. As soon as we arrived, presumably the owner, sat us down and went through the map of the city with us. He pointed out the good beaches to go to and what restaurants he recommends. We were right next to the... More

Best hostel I've ever stayed at!! With the best location in Lagos! We are in the private rooms and it is so lovely! Rooftop terrace to enjoy some beverages, kitchen is massive and clean and lots of room to put our food. Common area is lovely too! The private rooms are in the street next to the dorm rooms, the...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. We were in the private ensuite which isn't in the main hostel building, it's a street away. Very quiet location which was awesome! Not a far walk from the main part of old town or the beaches. Very clean and very warm welcome! Would definitely recommend this place and stay... More

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
