The Yoga Surf Retreat was everything I had hoped it would be. The people working at Bura Surf House were fantastic. The surf instructors were also really easy-going and tried their very best to get me to stand up (if only a few times). The yoga instructor was also an absolute gem and one of the most beautiful ladies I have met. Add to that great food and wine. To sum up, I feel like a got a lot more than I paid for on this trip. This all despite the fact that it rained every single day except the last day (very unlucky for the time of year)

Oh My God! What can I say about the best holiday I've ever had on my own? From the staff to the events and to the people I met on my adventure, I had the most wonderful time in beautiful Lagos and I recommend anyone to visit this place. Thank you to Heather and Nick, our trainer. You made 2015 spectacular!

I really cannot find the exact words to describe what a wonderful experience it was staying at this hostel. The staffs came across as genuinely interested in their guests and were so approachable and attentive. It really felt more like staying with friends than at a business hotel. The customer service provided was simply beyond my expectations. This extends to the instructors / companies who provided the additional activities which can be booked. I wish that more hostels were run in this fashion. Breakfast was great: cereal, toast, porridge, and pancakes. Evening dinners were not only amazing - it was a great way to meet the other guests. I am grateful for ear plugs, the hostel does echo. The hostel is a short stroll from a supermarket / 10 minutes into central Lagos. In peak season, there is probably going to be issues with the bathroom facilities (could do with more). There were no safes / lockers in the rooms, but there was a staff member on 24 hours a day and I felt really safe (plus I had a private room I could lock).

I was initially a bit nervous after signing up for the boot camp, but there was nothing to be worried about. The Bura team and all the lovely fellow boot campers were there to ensure everyone had a great time and there was a strong family feel to the place. The activities, food, and the chilled environment made it very hard to leave.
