The Best AirBnB’s in Africa: Lagos, Nigeria


Journals  |  Accommodations  |  The Best AirBnB’s in Africa: Lagos, Nigeria

May 19, 2019
Lagos, Nigeria is decidedly one of the most expensive places for accommodations on the continent — the big price tag doesn’t always mean a high quality stay. Here are our picks for one of Africa’s biggest metropolises.

For Solo Travelers or Friends That Want to Share

A Minimalist Gem 

$88 per night

We’re biased — Ebi’s place is hands down our favourite Lagos AirBnB. It’s everything it’s supposed to be, nicely done, centrally located, and an awesome host.

Right on the Lekki/Victoria Island border, you’re not going to be able to get a place this nice in such a great location at this price in Lagos.

The pros: Awesome Host, Easy UBER transport, wonderfully decorated

The cons: None at all.

Your Victoria Island HQ 

$71 per night

Victoria Island is Lagos’s social and business hub. It is also the place where even a basic 3-star hotel can run you $300/night.

Stanley’s place is an exception, simply decorated with access to a pool he’s a friendly host who loves to make visitors feel welcome in his city.

The pros: Host is excellent, right in Victoria Island

The cons: we can’t find any

Sarah’s Lekki Hideout 

$68 per night

The home of “new money” and Lagos’s growing middle class, Lekki is within a 10-15 minute drive of Victoria Island and Ikoyi — a bridge built just a few years back made this connection even easier.

Sarah’s place is a sun-drenched bungalow that even has a backup for its backup generator which is a really big plus in this city. Cosy and thoughtfully appointed it is a perfect place for people who need to be in the mix.

The pros: UBER always near, Consistent Power, Free WiFi

The cons: At rush hour (which is almost all day), getting from Lekki to other parts of the island can be time-consuming.

Rooftop and Chill in Lekki 

$70 per night

Dor’s place in Lekki is artfully decorated with African fabrics and tons of great books that are available for you to use while you’re there.

Not far from the beach or the main highways it’s centrally located and always an UBER away from anywhere you need to go. The outdoor terrace is hands down the dopest thing about the house, it’s perfect for relaxing and people watching.

The pros: UBER, central location

The cons: No newfound homies welcome
