In a quiet location not far outside the old city and less than 5 minute walk to D.ana beach and another one that i forget the name of. Its more like your staying in some friendly guys house (Paul) rather than a place of business. Its all newly refurbed, so everything feels and looks brand new. Only a small place, i think about 25 beds all up, so everyone gets to know each other and it creates a nice friendly vibe. Hopefully it gets a sign up soon so that you can find it a bit easier and avoid having to backtrack up and down the street looking for it. Was only opened for a week when i got there so not entirely set up yet (pool table and lockers are on the way), but will be a massive winner once complete!

Yeah, as the name of the hostel suggests it surely is big chill, especially compared to other noisy places around Lagos... Located at the best part of the city, between two beaches, 5-10 minutes away from the center, it is for me the best place for a hostel, a bit away from the crowd, but still close to the beaches. The rooms are clean, the sleep is great and staff, Paulo was very useful about any informations considering Lagos and is pretty charming. The hostel is brand new, and still in making, so there are few more things to catch up, but overall my staying there was pretty neat. Highly recommended for solo travellers or couples...

Its more of a guesthouse than a hostel. There is no reception or tour desk. It is only new and opened too early. There werent any activities or pool table abailable. There is no aircon or fans and 2 rooms upstairs have no windows. There are no lockers or safes available.
I also think some of the first reviews on hostelbookers are fake so keep that in mind.
It has potential but needs more effort.

It's a lovely little hostel. It's simple but clean and offers great value for money. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. There's a terrace with sea view where you can do BBQs in the evening. The best thing is that, when you wake up in the morning you can just walk down to the beach for a swim! We had a fantastic time there :)
