Good location on the road comming from Nouadibhou. Good Turkish restaurant near by. The owner wasn't there at the moment. Service wasn't bad but could have been better. Rooms were basic as well as the bathroom.

I'm back again to this place, and found it somehow changed, more rooms, more people. Lost some of its genuinity, but still a good place to stay for the night, though. People are still friendly and you can cook your own meals.

Let me start with this: they have WiFi and with pretty decent speed. Surprisingly hotels in Nouakchott are quite expensive average price being around 50€ and some don't even have Wi-Fi, so we decided to camp here for 2 days. Bathrooms are OK. They don't have a restaurant, but you can still order some dishes in the evening with a... More

This is NOT in the luxury category! However, if you have driven this far, there is everything you need here to recover! Plenty of parking inside (secure) and outside (guarded). Cafes and shops opposite for anything you need. Don't be surprised, if it is busy, to be put in a "dorm" with other people. I've stayed here five times and... More

The Auberge Sahara is located on the road to Nouadhibou, and well signposted so not hard to find. It caters to different budgets with a tent on the roof that costs near nothing to self contained rooms that I found rather expensive in case of single occupancy. It is quite some distance to the centre and to get there you... More

Great location off the main high road. Auberge sahara is a great place to stay. We used it when taking part in a budget rally from England - Timbuktu and parked our car inside the compound. There is a great chill out area inside the main compound with a place to relax with other people. The dorm rooms are big... More

If you are passing trough Nouakchott, this is a must to stay for the night. In the middle of the main street and town, quiet and very nice place to stay. People are friendly and wiling to help you. Price is very good and we had an excellent meal. This is a place were motorcycled hardcore travelers stop for the... More

Auberge Sahara is not conveniently located, provides only intermittent wifi and has a serious bed bug problem in both the private rooms and the mattresses on the roof. When I complained about the bed bugs, the owner said, "Lots of people complain about them, but what can I do." I'd definitely recommend staying somewhere else.
