Would happily have paid a grip for this hostel however my man Lee offered bare discount in exchange for working a little bit. Sick location, however please note that if you want excellent customer service you have come to the wrong town. Also it's worth noting that breakfast is not limited to one piece of bread and the system can be abused.
When my friends and I went for a night out we were joined by someone to claimed to work at this hostel, however when walking back he was rummaging through the bins for food as he had ran out of money.
Top tip for Lagos - try and catch my man with the water taxi so you can get to the biggest beach and don't have to walk bare far and get offered all sorts of tours. DO NOT VISIT THE SPAR on the way into town as it is useless and the internet cafe over the road is about as useful as a chocolate kettle.
Overall good hostel with some interesting characters. Honorary mentions go to the freak who stayed in the room with us on the last two nights, Uman, the seagull we cooked at the hostel and Conzuela.
