Mama and papa make you feel very welcome at the rising cock! In a great location in Lagos, can be a little hard to find for the first time! Mammas crepes are amazing and her special tika tika tea is perfect! Didn't find the hostel to be dirty at all!

It's a hostel, don't expect to waltz into the showers barefoot without contracting some weird foreign fungus. Accomodation is basic but the party, people you meet and mama's crepes more than makes up for it! Great spot in Lagos, pretty central to everything and beautiful hidden beaches are a nice little walk away. Be careful not to miss the booze cruise, you won't get your money back.

The Rising Cock Hostel is in a fantastic location and the staff are very friendly in the family run hostel. The daily crepes made by mama every morning for breakfast make the stay even more enjoyable! Affordable prices for young budget back packers.

This is a straight up Party hostel . If you are not bothered about the cleanness then this is best hostel to be in Lagos for partying . well located closed to the bars and the beach is 5 mins walk .
They have pub crawls every day . This is the best party hostel I have ever been in my life .
