Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2016

By far the best party hostel I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Everyone was up for it... including the staff. Mama made sure everyone was looked after every morning with a healtly load of pancakes with all the sauces. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lagos! Awesome booze cruise and a pub crawl every night. Love it.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor aka the penthouse if you're a lad!

A fantastic hostel located perfectly adjacent to the beach and night spots. The hostel is a quick walk to the best restaurants in Lagos.

The rooms are simple and clean. Ma, the proprietor, is a legend and makes fantastic crepes each morning.

This hostel also went searching for something expensive that I left behind and also posted it to me in Australia, for free! Could not recommend this hostel more with that sort of service.

The hostel is also a 15 minute walk away from the amazing beach displayed in this reviews pictures

If you want to meet people and experience the nightlife than you should stay here!
They organise free pub crawls every night, the staff is really fun!
In the morning you get free crepes and during the day you can chill in the living room or go to the beach. It feels more like being at home than a hostel.
You should be aware that 90% of the guests are Australian though ;)

Best hostel in Lagos. Mama is an amazing host that cooks up pancakes each morning and helps you recover from your hangover. Really comfortable couch and netflix in the communal area for when you're feeling seedy from what is a pretty wild pubcrawl each night.

I'm not sure how I feel about this place.

The breakfast and Mama is definitely the greatest thing about this place. Every morning, Mama makes crepes and Tiki Tiki (some magical hangover lemon tea) in her kitchen. Everyone is crammed in there recovering from the previous night. At first it feels weird seeing a bunch of grown men in their late 20s calling this stranger "Mama" but you get over it. They organize pub crawls and booze cruise. The booze cruise was a sausage fest. If you are a large group (~8 people), request the "beach house" (in quotations because it's not actually on the beach, it's just an apartment a few blocks away from the main hostel). However, i'd be weary to accept if they offered it to you in a smaller group because they will put other people in there and if you don't get along with them then are stuck in an apartment away from everyone with people you don't mesh with. The best thing about said "beach house" is the rooftop terrace (see photo) the views are amazing.

The BIGGEST con of this hostel is that you have to keep quiet after ~10:30 or 11pm and they kick you out of the common areas at that time too. The staff then sends you to a mediocre bar across the street that is also owned by the hostel owners so that you can go spend your money there. One night we were hanging out on our rooftop terrace and a staff member actually came all the way to our "beach house" to tell us to LEAVE because we were making too much noise.

Room Tip: If you are in a large group, request the beach house (6 single beds, 2 double beds)
