Big Chill was an excellent hostel, one of my favourites from my 14 weeks traveling through Europe for sure. Though it is not in the absolute center, it is extremely close (5-10 minutes) and is even closer to the beaches which was nicer in my opinion. The facilities were clean, there are two kitchens, and lots of space to hangout at the hostel, including a back patio that has a bbq. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is great as well. I made some really great friends while staying here, and the hostel made my trip in Lagos so much better.

Room Tip: I stayed in the 10 bed dorm, it was really great for meeting people, and there is lots of space for all your bags as well as individual lockers for important belongings.

Really really enjoyed this place! The atmosphere was great, and the location, while a bit far out of the town, was right near an excellent beach. The first night I was there, everyone in the hostel made dinner together and then we spent the evening hanging out in the common room and playing board games, and then the second night we all went on a pub crawl in Lagos together. I would especially recommend this place to solo travelers - very easy to meet people.

We had the best time at the big chill! It was a perfect hostel for meeting other travelers. Leigh showed us such great hospitality. We had a huge BBQ quite a few nights with all the guests getting involved. The spa on the rooftop was fantastic. We loved being so close to the beach too. The cliff top walks are incredible. We loved the fun times we had and the friends we made. Really enjoyable stay!

Big Chill hostel is absolutely the best place I have ever stayed. Aside from the fact that Lagos is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, big chill is only a 2 min walk to one of the 10 best beaches of the world, it has the best atmosphere, breakfast and facilities that you can ever ask for and A FREE HOT TUB ON THE ROOF!!!. It is out of the way of your typical tourist haunt being a 10 min walk from the town but you'd be crazy to stay in the center after you've seen the location and vibes of this place. The hostel manager is an absolute legend and makes you feel at home from the second you walk in! They will tell you the BEST cheap local eats, cheap drinks, take you out on free pub crawls and book everything from tours, kayaking adventures, to shuttle buses. Almost every one you meet will extend their stay never wanting to leave. Do your self a favour and check this place out. Cheers to Lee and the gang for the best few days ever!!! I'll be back.
