Hey, remember what I was saying about hostel OTAs in West Africa on Tnooz? Just noticed Desertrose in Dixcove is closed until further notice. You can reach an availability search for it on Hostels.com, Bedandbreakfastworld.com and Hostelworld.com via Google, but it looks like there’s none in the system – so you can’t book it and wouldn’t find it if you started from their homepages, as they only return properties with available rooms.
As per my reference to ‘the expat factor’, it was set up by Swedish travellers and is now for sale. It’s on the same stretch as British-run Green Turtle, also on the market.
