Hostelz.com's Review
Big Chill Hostel is a nice place to stay in Lagos, with a perfect location, a friendly staff, and a generally family feel. Although it's likely better to visit in summer due to weather, it is still beautiful no matter what time of year. The hostel is really a place where it feels possible to take a rest and -- as the name says -- chill! Also, the price is reasonable considering the amazing location.

The Location

The location of the hostel is great -- just a street up the hill from the gorgeous Dona Ana beach. It is a bit of out town from where buses and trains arrive, but not too far to walk. There is plentiful street parking. It is not particularly easy to find from the beach, so be sure to get an address. They are apparently waiting to get a sign made, and so until then, there is nothing showing where the hostel is. It is one floor up in a building that appears to be apartments, and so we struggled to find it.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms and bathrooms are good and kept clean. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom provides a tub as well as a shower. The showers are in a bathroom, and so there is room to change in there. There are no in-room lockers but there is a safe on-site if needed, although the hostel environment feels small and secure (the hostel itself doesn't accommodate many people, so it's easy to keep track of your things).

Common Spaces

There is a nice amount of common space. There is a large and comfortable living room, including a TV with many channels. There is also a large dining area. There are multiple outdoor areas where you can spend time and relax, between a rooftop patio and two decks on hostel level, with many comfortable beanbag chairs and other places to sit. The kitchen is wonderful as well, outfitted with everything, and with room for multiple people to cook.

Summary

Big Chill is a great place to stay when visiting Lagos. It feels like a small family, and in this sense is very social and comfortable, a place where you could find it easy to spend a couple of weeks just relaxing.
