“Comfortable, clean and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

We arrived at 3am on a delayed flight to be welcomed warmly by the manager who speaks french and english. The auberge is basic but very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and thorough. The rooms are not air conditioned but were equipped with fans. The windows are fitted with insect mesh and there are hooks for mosquito nets (not provided). There is a small restaurant/bar overlooking the beach, which also is clean and well equipped although we didn't use it. The location is right on the beach, which is usually crowded with local fishing vessels so not suitable for bathing. It is also next door to the local mosque and it is usual to be able to hear the prayer calls. Yoff is just outside the hustle and bustle of the city centre of Dakar and is authentic Senegal without being too far off the beaten track

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2009

This hotel is great. Clean, with friendly people running it. I had a terrible experience on the ferry from casamance and arriving at Le Poulagou made me feel like I could finally take a breath and have some peace. It is nice to walk on the beach in Yoff, very little hassle, wonderful boats and nice people.
Also, Le Poulagou has a cafe that serves real espresso, so if you're tired of nescafe you can treat yourself to something good. They also have excellent food, books in a variety of languages, FREE WIFI, board games, and comfortable furnature in the cafe.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat! And so close to the airport!
