“What more hostels should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

We received such a warm welcome and excellent service at the Gold Coast. They gave great restaurant recommendations, free sangria and soup and organised our fishing charter. Not to mention the step by step instructions on how to get to our next destination.

They are pretty serious about keeping the Gold Coast a chilled out, friendly place and not a party hostel. We were happy with this, having just come from a party hostel in Lisbon and getting little sleep for four days. All this really meant was that you had to go out if you wanted to keep drinking and talking loudly after midnight. No big deal.

We had a twin room with a shared bathroom in the main building. Simple but comfortable. Definitely good value. Hope to be back sometime soon!

Great hostel. Lively but not a party hostel -- its the perfect balance. The owners also provide you will all the information/advice you need to get the most out of Lagos. I will definitely stay there again when I return to Lagos.

Everything was clean. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. They provide you with linens and a towel.

They provide a simple breakfast in the morning (though, I recommend checking out the many restaurants for a good, solid breakfast). You can also get some drinks for very cheap. Beach towels are available for 1 euro.

An extremely clean and comfortable hostel which was excellent to meet other travelers. A great place to chill out, relax whether its sitting out on the terrace or watching a movie in the TV room. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds, clean toilets and bathrooms, and free safety locker as well. Lots of good places to eat within 10 minutes walk of the hostel, and a couple of supermarkets are close by too.

Stayed at the hostel last July in a quad share with ensuite.. As soon as I arrived the main dude there was so welcoming, ran through everything.. Even got out a map to show me the best beaches and places to see.. Room was very clean, ensuite had large shower and all rooms have security locked doors. Mine also had my own safe, which I found useful for passport and cash. At night they have a security guy at the door, to keep the ferals out.. If you want to party hard but have a clean and quiet place to sleep then this is it!!
