The hostel does have a very good price and its surroundings are quiet so you do get to enjoy a peaceful and remote residencial area of Lagos. However, they have quite a strict set of rules so if you don't think you can comply with them, then this is most likely not the place for you. It was not a... More

We reached around 11 at night. As soon as the owner saw us he said 'I was hoping you would not come tonight'. Then when we gave him our booking form he said the booking website didn't notify him and there were no rooms left. But the way he spoke to us when we went seemed like he knew he... More

Well, we were group of friends and we stayed at the hostel by the time that lockers were robbed during the night. We didnt have anything in lockers by that time but it was pretty bad for other guests (who lost their stuff). The owner is grumpy or funny, depends on what kind of mood are you in ;). Overall...

This hostel is such a lovely small family run accommodation. We had a private room with en suite which was nicely decorated and didn't just look like your standard hotel rooms and it was very clean. Breakfast is included and is a great breakfast for a hostel. You can even pay as little as €5 for a really nice home... More

You don't grow on this hostel. This hostel grows on you. The best part of it are the stories you depart with. Things to know: The tent is not a tent. It is a loft room at the top of the hostel where, at various stages of drunkenness, you will concuss yourself by hitting your head on the roof. However:... More

Recently me and my brother stayed at the Ocean View Hostel (off season). We really enjoyed our stay there and can recommend this place. It is very good value for the money you pay. Breakfast is included in the price you pay for the room (very cosy and super clean) and you can also book a delicious dinner for as... More

We loved our 9 night stay with Miguel and his family (in the off season). We originally booked 3 nights, but stayed on for another 6 and simply relaxed by their pool, soaking in the sun, reading, playing games and enjoying their beautifully catered meals. Definitely choose the 5 Euro family style dinners with deliciously sweet desserts. You never go... More

I was on a Europetrip and have seen a lot of different Hostels in France, Spain and Portugal. Actually I don't write reviews, but this hostel was the worst and I have to warn people... When I arrived I was "welcomed" by a moody receptionist/owner and somehow I was friendlier to him than he was to me(who was working there... More
