WARNING:
Rising Cock will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary on May 25th. From May 22nd – May 26th you can expect an even more epic party experience filled with various activities. If recreational drinking, beach parties, booze cruises and making (or possibly cuddling with) new friends is not your thing, please do not book Rising Cock.

Going hard since 2004, the Rising Cock Hostel has become a haven where global travelers, international students and party connoisseurs come to have fun, relax and experience the Lagos how it was meant to be.

Our family offers you an intimate atmosphere and spacious layout; it's more like staying at your best friend's beach house. When you're not sunbathing on one of the luxurious Lagos beaches or recovering from an unforgettable night out, you can chill on our outdoor terrace, relax on our comfy couches or enjoy free, high-speed internet and Wi-Fi access in the relief of your room.

Your stay at Rising Cock includes helpful 24-hour reception and storage lockers.

By day, the Rising Cock is a tranquil refuge Lagos thrives by night and heavy partying is not only highly tolerated but encouraged; so let our lounge serve as your pre-game central before you head to the nearby bars in town.

Feast every morning at our free, unlimited breakfast. Wake up every morning to Momma's legendary crepes and magic lemon tea proven to cure the severest of hangovers. When Momma's not showing off her culinary skills, enjoy the pleasures of our fully equipped kitchen.

Rising Cock is centrally located in the center of Lagos, just around the corner from the best restaurants, bars, and a short walk to some of Lagos' most picturesque beaches.

Remember, you're not just booking a bed at Rising Cock, you're booking the real Lagos experience.

Prices are per person per night.

FROM THE BUS STATION: map with directions (http://bit.ly/lXmB4g)

Once you get off the bus head straight toward the marina, and take a right on to the main avenue (Avenida dos Descobrimentos). You will be walking on this street for about 10 minutes. You will go by a BES Bank, Repsol Gas Station, and big parking lot. Keep on walking until you see a church up ahead to your right in a square with fountains. Walk to and past the church and head up the street with the pharmacy on the corner. You will continue straight up the street as you pass by a few shops and another church. Keep going for another minute until you reach a small bakery on the corner of the right side of the street, with a statue of a woman holding a piece of cake. Once you are passed that, go to the left just around the corner, but do not go up the hill! Turn right down the street with �The Lightroom� on the corner until you pass by a small supermarket. STOP! By this point you should reach a large red door on your right, with a buzzer for the Rising Cock. Congratulations, you have successfully found the Cock.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
