La experiencia en Racing Mackerel Hostel fue muy buena. Lagos es una ciudad bellísima y la ubicación del hostel es ideal para disfrutarla al máximo. Bianca y Thiago son muy amables, comprensivos y trabajan a la par de los voluntarios. Definitivamente recomendaría este voluntariado a cualquiera con ganas de aprender y colaborar en la gestión de un hostel tranquilo y con buena gente. Espero volver pronto.



Working as a volunteer for Bianca and Tiago was an amazing experience. They have welcomed me as if I was part of their family and the other staff of the hostel were amazing too! I got to meet many amazing people from all around the world and the working hours were really fine.



It was a great experience, Bianca and Tiago are a friendly and responsible fun couple. They care about the welfare of their volunteers as well as their guests. Always willing to help, this has been my best experience in Worldpackers, a great and quiet hostel surrounded by a beautiful nature party.
Espero volver a verlos, gracias por todo :D



This was my first time with Worldpackers and it was great! The hostel feels like home and it’s pretty small so you have a lot of time to enjoy Lagos. The hostel is in the center so everything is close. Bianca and Tiago are great and really nice people. Thank you!!!



My experience at Racing Mackerel was much better than I could imagine. Bianca and Tiago are wonderful people, they helped me to get to know the city, with recommendations and everything I needed. After the time I spent in Lagos the feeling is to leave a piece of house behind. I think that's the best part. The hostel is very well equipped and comfortable, you can make lots of friends and have plenty of time to discover the city. In addition, Princess Leia, the cutest dog in town. No doubt about it, I'll be back as soon as possible :)
