Sanitary facilities are not very nice, but who really cares when staff and atmosphere are great? Breakfast could be improved


Stayed 2 nights, and everything was okay, no bedbugs, nice balcony, quiet room and a nice welcoming feeling when you where at the outside common area. But no hot showers:/


Nice place, friendly people!


Friendly staff and good breakfast


Discover Rwanda Youth Hostel is clean, with friendly staff and patrons, a very relaxed atmosphere, and a nice view from the decks. Excellent wi-fi access throughout. One person in our group is a vegetarian and the day's menu didn't include a vegetarian option, but the chef happily prepared a veggie burger for our friend. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. Would certainly recommend.

Great place. Very friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere


Had a money crisis and the hostel owner offered to trade my non-usable 2001 bills (since Rwanda only accepts 2006 or later) so that I could pay for the hostel and my bus ticket. Hostel staff were very friendly and remembered me since I've stayed here 3 times now. Will always go back here.


Hostel is well-kept, has a very friendly and able staff, and is in a great location. "Youth" hostel is a misnomer: there were several "oldies" like me while I was there. The room was quiet and comfortable.

We liked the location as it was relatively close to the airport, but a 60 minute walk into the city centre. Found it noisy till late at night, so sleep disturbed. An OK hostel.


A great place close to the city. Good facilities and clean. Nice big lounge area for meeting other people and it never got too loud at night. Fast WiFi too.
