Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This fifth floor walkup with many useful amenities (landline, wifi, voltage converter, hairdryer, etc.) is my homebase for when I'm doing research in Dakar. It's in the middle of one of Dakar's most vibrant neighborhoods, Médina, which is crowded, but also very safe. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom. The other room is occupied by Saliou, my assistant while I was a Fulbright Scholar who can serve as your guide or assistant for an affordable daily rate, depending on his availability.

Response from Brendan:
Thank you Melinda! We're so sorry that your charger was taken when someone came in to do an inspection/repair. From now on I will make sure that the repairs are done when there are no guests here, and if it has to be done I will make sure to vigilantly watch 100% of the time. I'm glad that I was able to immediately replace your charger.

Bonjour je suis Sénégalais d'origine guinéenne, et comme rien n'est hasard, naturellement j'aime le multiculturalisme et l'échange. Come to my place and I will show you what "Teranga Senelaise" is al about.
