How accurate is this tip? Well I am in the airport right now writing it!

If you have the great misfortune to be a transit passenger in this airport, you will not enjoy it much. They take your passport and make you go through security again. Then they take you upstairs to a 'Transit Lounge' where there is some old furniture, a newspaper and a guard (today) asking for a bribe. When I explained I wanted to use the Lounge he directed me to the Skyway Lounge in the same area. Don't do it!

They asked for $40 and it looked crowded and nasty. When I said I had used the other lounge for $25 - the price dropped! No way!

Gabfol Lounge is THE lounge for economy customers at Lagos Airport.

$25 gets you one free drink and use all day. Its clean, modern, quiet, has showers and free internet. You can even upload photos!!! You also get an excellent view of the runway, good service, TV, full bar, food and a smokers corner. Please note: its cheaper to eat downstairs.

Address: Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos
Directions: Go up the stairs just to the right after the main central security checkpoint in the airport.
