The last time we reported about, the company was hosting a Machine Learning Hackathon for local developers. Before that, the online hotels booking platform was in the news for raising $1.2 million in Series A funding. A remarkable milestone for the Mark Essien led company that last raised seed funding in 2013.

But we bet you didn’t know that they also recently moved to a new office space in Yaba, Lagos. Unless of course you attended the hackathon. We have seen our fair share of cool office spaces this year and I think it’s safe to say the is just as cool.

Allow us to take you on a tour of the new office space.


The new office has actually been re-purposed from a colonial building. They managed to retain that renaissance feel on the outside. Most of the real refurbishing work was done inside but we will get to that later.

Mark tells us they also have a backup generator in case of emergencies.

Mark Essien himself being a developer, prefers to work close to where the backend magic happens
