Right next to the lovely river which is good for swimming. 5,000 CFA for a double room. Place looks like it has never been cleaned. No running water. Filthy private bathroom. Power only on for 3 hours, so although room has a fan, it can't be used and the rooms get very hot. The beds are extremely uncomfortable - thin mattress through which you can feel every wooden slat. No bedding (only a bottom sheet - no pillows). We were allowed to cook in the lounge, which actually had comfy sofas but mosquitoes can come in through ventilation holes in the wall. No towels or soap. Bucket shower with water from the river - bucket not provided. Sit down toilet but no toilet seat and filthy. Accessed by an unmarked, rough track south of the village but before the bridge.
