"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.…"

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.

Liked: Simple auberge filling the gap in Dakar (there are very few). The space was clean and quiet and fit my needs perfectly, and the bus to downtown (#1) stops 2 blocks away on the main road, superb! Oh, an it's a very very safe neighborhood.

Disliked: The staff barely spoke English but they were nice nonetheless. They never confirmed my airport pickup after 2 emails, but that's Africa.

Liked: the bathroom and common area was clean

Disliked: the staff were incredibly rude, were not able to provide any help about traveling Dakar or even how to naviagate the bus system. They constantly changed the prices of things on the menu The hostel locks the dorms and then the staff disappear, you can be waiting up to fifteen minutes to get in and out of the building
