Can't complain about this hostel, mama cooks crepes for all the guests in the mornings. There are good chill out spots. It's central to other shops/places to eat. The only annoying thing was getting kicked out of the kitchen by the cleaner, it always seemed to be around meal times haha Otherwise great place

Best hostel in Portugal, hands down. Mama is the best, the owner also owns the best burger place in town, and even has a booze cruise that is an awesome time to get to know everyone even further (and drink and swim). Great place for a hostel experience, definitely come here on your travels.

Had an awesome stay at the Rising Cock in Lagos. Noted it is a party hostel take that into consideration but you're young like myself looking to meet new people and party then this is the place! And Mama looks after the hostel and also looks after her guests very well. Cooking fresh crepes in the morning (till 12) out...

Big bed bugs! Started out fine - place was clean and quiet. However we found a BIG bed bug that night! We were offered another room which also had bed bugs - big guys too!! Mama is aware that she has bed bugs in her hostel. She would not refund our first night stay and would not let us wash...

The good was that the host was friendly, and she works hard to provide everyone with nice crepes for breakfast each morning. However two things left us with a very bad impression of the hostel overall: Firstly, 33 euros a night is simply outrageous for a bunk in a 10 person dorm, at least in this part of Europe. I...

If you want to party then this is the perfect place for you. If you do not want to party every night then do not stay here. We arrived around midnight and there was no one at the hostel we originally booked so this hostel thankfully let us in at 1am. The staff were great and very accomodating to take...

The Rising Cock Hostel in Lagos is a fantastic hostel for those who are keen to party. We were lucky enough to stay in the apartment offshoot just a short walk from the main hostel. Here everyone was keen to party and there wasn't really many times at night you could truly relax which didn't worry us as we were...

If you are looking for a party hostel, this is your spot because it is definitely that! We arrived on a Wednesday evening right as the booze cruise was getting back & that was a bit intense sooo maybe try to not show up on Weds or Sat evening :) but Mama feeds you crepes & tika tika (both of...

Absolutely amazing place to stay. Giant communal living area and outdoor patio for everyone to hang out. Mama makes the best breakfast and juice every morning to cure your hangover. Pub crawls every night and day cruises organised by the guys working there. 10/10. Cant wait to go back!!

Firstly, mumma is the biggest sweetheart in all of Portugal (she runs it!). The hostel is well located- near the bars, restaurants and a short walk from the beach. The accommodation itself is average however you don't stay at rising cock for a 5 star experience. The rooms are made up of bunk beds, some with private bathrooms, some without....
