I was traveling for about 5 months through the Middle East and Europe, and Bura was hands down my favorite place I stayed. The staff there was incredible, they really make you feel at home. The pizza night, the BBQs, and the movies were all well done and lots of fun. If you want to surf, kayak, tour the west coast, or whatever, you can arrange it all right from their front desk. I did a few days surfing, and you get picked up right at the hostel for either lessons or just a ride+rent. The place was clean, the pool is awesome, they have a ping pong table, and I made friends there that I will have for life. Do yourself a favor and stay here! Also was cooked free pancakes two mornings randomly by the staff. Truly an excellent place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Whether traveller, adventurer or beach bum, coming alone or with friends - as long as you’re keen for a relaxed vibe with super smiley staff - you’ll fit right in. We’re located a little further out of town because we’re not just a bed; our Surfhouse is a family style villa complete with pool, in-house chef, rooftop terrace, and poolside bar. We offer the comforts of a home, but still within walking distance from the town centre, the beaches, and the nightlife. The hostel has an open-plan layout with tons of natural light, a spacious and fully equipped kitchen with multiple fridges, plenty of outdoor seating, deck chairs for tanning by the pool, hammocks for lazy days, and a wraparound balcony perfect for munching pancakes in the morning sun. Travelling alone? No big deal, you can easily meet like-minded travellers by joining us for our famous family style dinners prepared by our chef each evening, or by grabbing a beer at our poolside bar for only €1. You’ll be part of the Bura family from the get go - we offer free pick ups from the bus or train station (from 10am - 6pm daily) and a free drink upon arrival. We update our activities board weekly which details daily events and local tips on things to do, drink and eat in Lagos. Join us each night as we walk together into town for a thorough tour of the bars - just one of our professional responsibilities! Not a night owl? No worries; our quiet location allows guests looking for a good night’s sleep to escape the hustle and bustle of town. We are a fun hostel, but not a ‘party’ hostel, so please bear that in mind when booking with us. We can organise surf lessons, surf trips, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, wake-boarding, wine-tasting to our local vineyard, and a whole range of other activities through our 24 hour reception.
