We are a 44 bed backpackers hostel located in Lagos, 15 minute walk from the centre of the old town, away from the crowds and perfect for those looking to chill out and explore the best Lagos has to offer.

Please note no guests under 18 years permitted

The space

The Bura Surfhouse hostel in Lagos has everything you need and more from a hostel. We have twin rooms and 4 or 6 person dorms, all super clean and comfortable with all linen included and free lockers to store your things. Our hostel is just a 15 minute walk into the centre of the Lagos old town so we are close to all the action too. Our nearest beach is 10 minutes walk away.

Breakfast is included in the cost and we have great kitchen facilities if you're making your own food, but don't forget to join us for BBQ's and 1 euro beers at sunset in our awesome poolside bar.

If you want to get out and experience the surf, kayaking, hiking or any of the many other activities Lagos offers, we can make life easy and organise this all for you either in advance of your arrival or from reception once you arrive. We do recommend booking activities in advance in peak months to ensure availability.

Guest access

Guests have access to all shared spaces - kitchen, lounge, pool, garden, roof terrace, and these are shared with our other guests.

Interaction with guests

We operate a 24 hour reception so are on hand to help with anything during your stay.

Other things to note

Please note we cannot accept sole occupancy bookings via Air BnB as we have a specific group bookings policy which must be booked directly with Bura Surfhouse.

This was my first time staying at a hostel, and it may have ruined future experience since nothing will ever compare to the Bura Surfhouse. Everybody I met here was absolutely amazing and welcomed me with open arms. When we arrived we were shown around and given fresh linens and towels, a map of the local area (with the best bars circled and explained), and a welcome beer. Every morning there was a pancake breakfast with bread and cereal, and every night a group dinner you could join in on. The local bar scene was a lot of fun, especially going with everybody from the hostel together. I wish I could've stayed for more than three days, but I'll definitely be back soon.

Great little hostel with super friendly, down to earth staff. Really chilled environment and perfect place to chill poolside. Would totally recommend to anyone wanting cheap, central, chilled accomodation in Lagos.

Bura is run basically by a tightly knit group of hostel staff that do their best to provide exceptional service and make everyone feel welcome. From the second I walked in I felt right at home. The house itself holds a surprising amount of people so you're always meeting someone new. There's all kinds of activities going on in the mornings and people just relaxing in afternoons followed by group dinner if you opt in. Fantastic hostel experience.

Great pool and bar. Friendly atmosphere. 20 min walk from city centre, so wear appropriate shoes for traversing downhill cobblestones roads. All in all a good experience.
