Why you’ll love to stay and party at The Rising Cock

The Rising Cock is best known for providing a non-stop party. When you become a guest at the Cock, you will immediately be engulfed in the full party experience that Lagos has to offer from common room drinking games to booze cruises. We’re here to make sure you have the best time possible and keep you going for as long as you want or for the brave; until the sun rises. The Cock is all about positive experiences and good memories and we believe that, at The Rising Cock, we will provide an experience you will definitely never ever forget

Our Location

Located in the heart of Lagos, the Cock definitely hits the spot…on the map. Walk out the door and you are 1 minute away from bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and liquor stores. We’re just a 5-minute walk from some of the most breathtaking beaches in the world. When life is this easy, it isn’t hard to see why so many of our guests love Rising Cock

Our Services

Our hostel, consisting of a large comfortable common room, outdoor beer garden, balcony and kitchen facilities is the perfect place for any traveler to hang out. Every morning from 9-11am, Mama makes her famous crepes and “tika-tika” tea. She tells us that this magical lemon tea can cure any hangover, but all we know for sure is that it works! Channel your inner fat kid and eat as many crepes as you can: Mama will make sure that “If you got a plate, you got a crepe!”

Our Activities

  • FREE bar crawl every evening

Get ready to indulge in the vibrant and lively nightlife that Lagos has to offer. We start with some pre-gaming in the hostel before heading out to some of the hottest bars in town. Beware and be ready to take on some of the most intense drinking challenges of your life as local bartenders shoot, funnel, and penetrate your mouth with all the goods. We guarantee you the best night you’ll never remember!

  • Lagos’ Infamous booze cruise

A must for any party thirsty savage out there. As we set sail on the Atlantic Ocean get ready for a non-stop party. Filled with unlimited drinks, whip cream body shots, loud music and wild games be prepared to sink a cannon ball-sized hole into your liver. If this boat’s a rockin ‘don’t come a-knocking!

How to Get There

From Faro Airport One of the best ways is to book a shuttle bus in advance from shuttledirect.com. If you are booking a shuttle outside of the summer months, you may need to get a bus or a train. The bus times can be found here: eva-bus.com, check buses from Faro Aeroporto to Lagos in order to get the bus directly from the airport. If there are no times available, search for buses from Faro (city) to Lagos. Train times are available on the following site: cp.pt/passageiros/en/train-times. The faro bus/train station is at a separate location from Faro airport. To get there, take a taxi or a bus. If you exit arrivals and cross the car park where the taxis are parked, you should see a bus stop with buses that will take you to the bus/train station.   From Lisbon If you are planning to come from Lisbon, we highly recommend taking the bus as it is the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to get to Lagos. The trip takes about 4 hours with AC and Wifi on board. Keep in mind that Lisbon has two main bus stations: Lisbon Oriente (closer to Airport) and Lisbon Sete Rios (closer to the city center). The ticket costs about 20 Euros. Feel free to check out the schedule on the following website: rede-expressos.pt/en or download the application to your smartphone, called: MYRNE. There is also the option to take a train. However, there is no direct route and you may have to make one change at “Tunes” in order to arrive in Lagos

    Perfect hostel for a weekend getaway, the only facility they lacked in was the unavailability of soap dispensers in the private toilets.
