    Testimonials

    • Review by Paul M.

      "I stayed here for a week in a single room. It was clean and well run. The staff was friendly and helpful, and they have a nice complimentary breakfast. It's a little bit of an older crowd, I would say 25-35. Nice change from some of the hostels in Lagos with all kids. It's pretty quiet and relaxing. The pool layout is nice. They do a big bbq spread on Tuesday night that is really good. There is also daily yoga. I would recommend this place."

      "Spent a fantastic 10 days here. The best thing about this place is the staff. They were absolutely fantastic and organised everything for us perfectly. Even when we would ask for something to be organised at the last minute they were able to make it happen. The accommodation was excellent. The breakfast was excellent. Best holiday I've ever had!"

      "Altavista is a little piece of heaven on earth! I've been here for ten days and thankfully still have four more days to relish in this great atmosphere. Accommodation is really comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is always great too!!The staff could not be more obliging from organising activities to entertaining us with amazing bbq nights and tapas evenings. I feel like they are more friends than staff at this stage! I've met amazing people and made fantastic memories. I will most definitely be back. Thanks for everything guys."

      "Had a sick time! Have stayed in many hostels round the world and this place is right up there with the best of them. Good clean rooms, great location and really chilled atmosphere around the pool in the evening. Jon and Christina genuinely care about all of their guests and don't just pay them lip service or pretend to be interested. Good job guys will be back again at some point!!"

      "I had a fantastic holiday at Alta Vista. I met people from more than 10 different countries! Everybody, including the hosts, was very kind and looking to do things together. It was by far the best decision to go on holiday on my own."
