Perfect place to stay when visiting Lagos! Beautiful beaches on walking distance, city centre is very closeby and also on walking distance. The staff is amazing and very helpful. The manager Lee runs the place and does it perfectly.

The place is located only 5 min on foot from the most beautiful beaches in Lagos. They have a well equipped kitchen and loads of toilets.

Big Chill hostel was a lot of fun, the staff and other guest were very nice and welcoming, and the location was amazing! The hostel was very clean, with two kitchens available to use which made it feel very homey. So close to some amazing beaches, would definitely come back to Lagos and stay at Big Chill!

Great hostel! Very welcoming and friendly. Lee was extremely helpful and put my friends and me In the same room even though we biked separately. Breakfast is basic cereal and toast. About 20-25 minute walk to the city centre but close to a couple of other beaches. 8 minute walk to Qwazi, a very cheap but excellent restaurant! Management is...

Big Chill Hostel lived up to its name. The staff was super friendly and fun. Everyone staying at the hostel was laid back and would hang out together at night. We took advantage of the kitchen facilities and had all our meals out on the back deck of the hostel, which was lovely. Very clean. Right by Dona Ana beach...

The hostel was very clean, nice kitchen, bathrooms and common room. Lee the Welsh manager is a great character and took everyone out in the hostel for a pub crawl together. Not the biggest hostel in Lagos, but a very family feel and everyone was great friends, great for solo travellers. Lee also has great local knowledge about things to...

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...

This hostel is beautiful and overlooks the beach Dona Ana, which is the most picturesque beach close to central Lagos. It's about a ten minute walk dowtown/ to bars, but you will appreciate being able to come back to a quiet part of town to sleep! There are several common areas, and it has all the makings of a social...
