Reviewed July 27, 2011

Great location close to the city. Clean and comfortable room. Has a pretty cool roof top terrace with cooking facilities. Free WiFi and a communal computer. The manager there was a bit weird but apart from the place was good.

Carlos House is wonderful. It's a little more chill than the other "party hostels" but it is still a great place to meet fellow travelers and backpackers. Also, the guys who run it are very friendly and helpful. (They carried our luggage and gave us a ride to the bus.)

They have an amazing rooftop terrace with a kitchen and a grill for guests to use. We cooked an amazing dinner up there our first night, and met a bunch of people to go out to the bars with. I had a great time in Lagos, and hope to return again soon!

Even though Lagos is famed for being a party town, Carlos House is a small hostel that was clean and quiet and makes an effort to make its guests feel welcome. Run by a nice guy named Arthur, this hostel is definitely NOT like the typical party hostels found in Lagos and has a lot of “guidelines” for its guests in order to make sure that it doesn’t turn into a frat house. This was exactly what my girlfriends and I were looking for – after a long day on the beach or a long night out, we wanted to come home to sleep, not stay up all night (in Lagos, if you really want to stay up all night there’s plenty of entertainment in town). The hostel seems really well suited for female travelers in particular – we stayed in a 4-bed female dorm and many of the other guests were female as well – as my friends and I felt perfectly safe there. There are safes (but no luggage lockers), clean, communal bathrooms, two kitchens, towels and linens provided, and a roof deck with lovely views. I’d definitely stay there if I went back to Lagos. Highly recommended for budget travelers, single travelers, particular women, and small groups.
