    Superb

    22 Oct 2018
    Fantastic base to explore Kigali. Eric and Geoff were fantastic. Incredibly friendly, helpful and informative. They arranged transport to get us to the Genocide Memorial (which the hostel is affiliated to) and also helped with a pick up and pseudo guide (Alfonse and he was brilliant) to the Kimironko market. Our stay was short, but that we would, and want to, return to Rwanda is largely down to the time we spent with the people from YHA. A great place to stay- they are doing some fantastic work

    Great place with a very friendly staff. The place is owned by the foundation which runs the Genocide Memorial, so your money is going to a good cause as well. Always a nice mix of locals and visitors to keep you company.

Service was very slow Rooms open toward the back (laundry, kitchen, staff areas) so very noisy and smells of food Water was not working at all in the room, and in some of the public bathrooms Reception often empty Some services advertised on hostelworld are not provided: ATM, currency exchange, pool, self catering No internet in some rooms
