I stayed in Ker Jahkarlo for 3 nights in October 2014. I was received at the airport as requested by the family who own the place. Fabio (the owner) was really superb, offering useful help and advice about the city of Dakar. The accommodation itself was lovely. Set in a quieter suburb of the city, but the beach is 5... More

Ker Jahkarlo was the perfect place to stay for what I was looking for. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable and sleeping was very easy at night, there was free Wifi (the fastest I have seen during 12 months of travel around Africa), a fully-outfitted kitchen available for use, a cozy back patio, a breezy rooftop terrace (where...

I contacted Fabio from Canada a couple of days before coming - I arrived at 2 a.m., got a sim card and had the taxi... More

Not many properties cater to the backpacker in Dakar but I would wager that is one of the best. Fabio and his family run a tight ship, keeping things really clean and uber friendly. Located just east of the airport, right by the beach, about a 45 minute bus ride away from downtown but more than enough to do around... More

If you're coming to Senegal not to isolate yourself in a resort, but want to meet people and discover local culture, that's the place to be! Placed in a lively neighborhood of Dakar, really close to the seaside, you will enjoy the friendliness of Senegalese people along with Fabio's competence to introduce you to the best things to do in...
