Located Near

We are located in the vibrant Old town centre of Lagos. We are very close to local restaurants and bars and the stunning beaches of Lagos are a stones throw away. There is also a supermarket and an ATM machine 5 minutes away from the hostel.

Lagos is a city that is full of history and tradition, being at the same time one of the most cosmopolitan places in the Algarve where for many years seemingly different people come together in complete harmony.
