I stayed at Auberge Le Poulagou for a week. It is an average hostel to stay in and I guess it is somewhat acceptable enough for a hostel. I moved to another hostel I discovered thereafter known as Auberge Le Palace, which has rooms of better quality and for the same price as Le Poulagou. Pros: 1. It is relatively... More

For more than 5 years, the Poulagou is my favorite choice when staying in Dakar. It's an oasis in the lively Yoff Tonghor neighbourhood: clean, safe and relaxed. Fine rooms situated around a beautiful green garden and located nearby the airport. A perfect base to visit the various beaches, bars and restaurants in the neighbourhoods of Yoff, Ngor and Almadies.... More

Auberge Le poulagou had all of these things and more! Fantastic friendly service from the staff, spotless room, very affordable, wifi and a place to leave our luggage after checkout... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in La Poulagou for several nights. We were welcomed by Chalil, a friendly young man that greets you by your name when ever you arrive. He's the receptionist, bartender, ... maybe even the owner. Because we left for Saint-Louis after the first night, but planned to come back after 4 days, we asked if we... More

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... More
