The hostel was very clean, nice kitchen, bathrooms and common room. Lee the Welsh manager is a great character and took everyone out in the hostel for a pub crawl together. Not the biggest hostel in Lagos, but a very family feel and everyone was great friends, great for solo travellers. Lee also has great local knowledge about things to... More

Would happily have paid a grip for this hostel however my man Lee offered bare discount in exchange for working a little bit. Sick location, however please note that if you want excellent customer service you have come to the wrong town. Also it's worth noting that breakfast is not limited to one piece of bread and the system can... More

Big chill hostel is the most laid back comfortable place I have had the pleasure to check into!! Lee the manager does a supurb job to fill you in with places to go eat ;) or sights to see, I love the fact there were two kitchens. The hostel is spread out over three levels so you never feel like... More

This hostel is beautiful and overlooks the beach Dona Ana, which is the most picturesque beach close to central Lagos. It's about a ten minute walk dowtown/ to bars, but you will appreciate being able to come back to a quiet part of town to sleep! There are several common areas, and it has all the makings of a social... More

There's nothing to complain about this hostel. Everything is clean and the staff is very friendly. Another great things are the comfortable lounge, a large terrace with barbecue and the whirlpool on the rooftop.

The hostel is just a little outside of town (which is great for a quality sleep in Lagos!) and right next to some great beaches! The beds were comfortable, the kitchens were nice. The shared bathrooms are a little inconvenient to use (but there is a female only one!) Breakfast is more then other hostels usually give, and the staff... More

In Big Chill there is really EVERYTHING you need to get the most out of your stay in Lagos. The location is awesome, just next to beautiful beach Praia da Camila and close to the center. Lee is leading the hostel like a champion, he puts his heart into managing this awesome place, taking guests to pub crawls at night,... More

We went on a lads holiday and the hostel put up with high jinx, fun and 18 of us for 3 days. Lee was ever patient and the location of the hostel was perfect for town and the nearby beaches. Lee also facilitated us joining a great boat trip on the Friday. Overall it was well priced, clean and perfect... More
