Liked: They change bed sheet everyday.

Disliked: The room is not ventilated well and smells bad.The shower and sink drainage is clogged.Bathroom is slped against drainage so the water is trapped all the time.The staff doesn't speak English and not knowledgable around the area. And this hotel is located in the middle of no where so you need directions which staff can't help much.

Liked: The location is pretty good. It has a good supermarket just nearby and from VDN you can catch buses (200XOF) and toubas everywhere in Dakar running constantly, way cheaper than taxis even if you get a 1500XOF ride. There is a good sort of pretty cheap local restaurants (1500XOF yassa poisson) just the other side of the VDN or pizza (3000XOF) if you like just in a 2 min walk to the left.

Disliked: Although the staff in general were friendly they just didn't know anything about how to get to a place whether in or outside Dakar. It's just incomprehensible. The beds didn't have cover sheets or pillows and they charge money for it. Didn't find this to happen in any other place (hostel or aubergue) in Senegal.Sometimes we waited an eternity for the door of the annexe to be open as the security guard was not there or was cleaning something in the upper rooms.The internet in the annexe didn't work. Although the signal was pretty good the password was wrong and they constantly postponed the resolution of the problem until we left.We asked for a 2h late check-out directly to the responsible in order to go straight to the airport and she stated that even if it was for 1h we would have to pay for another day. There goes the friendly attitude! The interesting in this is that there was no one, no one in the annexe!!

Liked: It's a dorm in Dakar.

Disliked: The hostel is right next to the end of the airport runway.To get out (or in), you have to find a staff member to open the door for you. The guests are actually locked inside and there is no fire exit.Some guests were given IOUs instead of change upon payment. I never got all my change back.

Liked: (Airport to hotel should cost more than 3000XOF)Hostel wasn't made from bunker beds. Senegal is very safe but property was safe, clean and well run. It was spacious, room had a fan and a TV. The property is run by three ladies who are very helpful and nice, and few young guys who are in change of security and cleaning, mostly keep the place running outside of the front desk. This is a great place to stay in Dakar, in the middle of everything. Very good price and usually not crowded.

Disliked: It would be better to have keys to the building rather than waiting someone to open the door but this is hardly a complain just a suggestion.
