I was part of a group of four backpackers who ended up in Abene by accident, a conversation on a boat resulted in an impulsive diversion here and I couldn't be more grateful to have ended up in the Little Baobab. We chose this hostel as it was recommended as a quality low cost option in the Bradt guide book. The hosts were so welcoming, I didn't meet Simon but Khady and the other staff were so welcoming and helpful.
We received tours of the town and visited the sacred Baobab tree and spent time at the beach. We also got to experience a Djembe party with dancing, singing and drums. I managed to read Squirting Milk at Chameleons during my stay and have to say I learned a lot! Would recommend travellers picking up a copy of Simon's book to learn about various traditions and cultures of Senegal.
The food at the Little Baobab is very good and the rooms are clean with proper bathroom facilities. Electricity is not yet available in the rooms which is standard in hostels in Senegal but I had my phone and camera etc charge in the main house which was fine.
10/10 would highly recommend to anyone visiting Abene.More
