Very Good 8.0
Ok for one night.
Stayed in group room for one night. Bathroom area was less than desirable. Staff is very nice. Breakfast was ok, bread and spreads. Easy to get a taxi in the area.

Easy location, affordable and friendly
Via is a good option for a budget traveler in Dakar, where lodging is rather expensive. Far from the center of town, it is is still easy to get a taxi right in front of the hotel at any time. They give you a nice breakfast and the courtyard area is a nice place to sit, although cushions are in need of an upgrade. The room was fine, slightly damp and humid but clean and with a bathroom in the room. Nothing fancy but a pleasant stay.

Basic no-frills place near bus stations
Accommodation in Dakar can be quite expensive and this place fulfills a niche that is rather lacking. It is located close to the major bus stations and is super convenient for those staying for the night between long-distance bus trips. It is located close enough to the sights in town that it might also be suitable as a base for exploring Dakar itself. The rooms are clean, the electricity and water work, the staff speak some English, wifi works in the common area, and there are a few decent restaurants in the neighborhood. All in all, a good budget option for a short stay.
