This must be one of my favourite locations where I'd stayed during my Senegal holiday. The hotel is located some distance down a sand road away from the main street of N'dangane. This means you need to walk a few hundred meters on a road consisting of loose sand to arrive. At night this road is very dark, especially if the power fails. Come to this, the campement has no generator, so bring a torch.
The huge positive side of Auberge Bouffe is the hospitality of Barbara and Bruno. Especially Barbara is a very friendly and helpful person. After reading Eltoy's review I feel I need to state that Bruno is too, just don't expect a natural born inkeeper.
I would seriously advise reading the information that is on the noticeboards since Barbara and Bruno assume you do. That way you will know, for example, that you need to make reservations for dinner. The reason is very good: Barbara will make you a personal meal made from fresh products bought that same day on the market and you get to taste Bruno's creative ice-creams. If you don't want to hang out for dinner Barbara and Bruno will happily point you to their favourite restaurants in town at any time of day.
Auberge Bouffe was a pleasant place to stay, especially during the warmest hours of the day the garden is a fantastic place to hang out. However, in the evening N'dangane gets plagued by mosquitoes that are impartial to clothing or DEET, staying in the garden at this time of day will have you itching the next morning.
The mosquito net , unlike in many other hotels, has been mended. Unforunately this is compromised because it drapes over a frame rather than being suspended inside it so does not really close around the bed/mattress, still allowing mosquitoes to enter through small gaps.
The quality of the food is good, the breakfast is the standard you come to expect in this price range.
