auberge de jeunesse à Tananarive Madagascar




The concept

Who doesn’t dream of a big breath of fresh air in the heart of Antananarivo?
A cheerful living space and where unexpected encounters are possible, where the atmosphere is like at home, where the most surprising activities are improvised, where music thrills us, where we feel alive. The simple life.
Madagascar Underground opens its doors and offers a bubble. A new playing field. A different space thats friendly, clean, convenient, international and professional.

Whether you need a place to drop your bags for a few hours, just to take a shower before your flight or bus trip, to surf the internet or relax before starting a long journey for a night or even longer, enjoy a Mexican meal or meet with friends – Madagascar Underground is the place.

We know the ins and outs of Madagascar, where all the cool spots are, and who to stay with, and also what there is to see. We know where the surf is, where the wind is, and where the best reefs are. Not to mention the caves.

Madagascar Underground has two dormitories, 4 double bedrooms and a family room, a lounge, a cinema and games room, a Mexican restaurant, a cloakroom, a large terrace and a garden.

Madagascar Underground, it’s not just that. It’s also an adventure that began six years ago in southern Madagascar by checking the surf in Anakao, and by jumping into a sinkhole in a National Park. It was the discovery of possibly the largest flooded cave in the world and the largest concentration of bones ever found. If you have got what it takes, Madagascar Underground can get you started on this unique journey.

Madagascar Underground can also connect you with excellent surfing, reef diving, and kite surfing guides, and drivers for sightseeing and just getting around. We will assist you to create a successful trip around Madagascar. Do not hesitate to contact us!
