Awesome guesthouse with very inviting staff. Each staff member takes the time to give travelers tips on where to go and what to do. Very welcoming and always willing to help.
Locations is excellent for everything you want to do is Lagos. Beach and shops 5 minutes away and bars just a street over.
Security is great as the guest houses are located on the second level and require at least 2 points of entry to get in. But you still should lock your valuables in the security boxes provided.
Very clean kitchen, bathrooms and rooms. Kitchen is well equipped.
The layout allows for people to interact well in the outdoor courtyard for predrinks or chats in the kitchen. Easy to get to know people.
Wifi not available in the second guesthouse but this wasn't too big a problem as I purchased a travel sim from travelersmobile.com for if I needed data without getting roaming fees. To get wifi you can go to the main guesthouse, a short walk away.
