    This place felt like home. It was so chill and so easygoing it was hard to leave. Beds were pretty flat and could use a mattress update, and wifi fluctuated often (typical for Africa) but overall... It was great. Got my laundry done, had a movie night, shared meals, and had a really nice time. Even walked from the Airport and back again. Central markets right around the corner and very helpful staff to give you a good starting point for adventure.

    The staff at this hostel were awesome. It is a small Hostel and so they try to get to know everyone. It was great that they were locals too who could give information and cook local food. Breakfast was different every morning which was nice. Loved the movie nights. Hostel is very clean and cleaned every day. Location is nice for the market but far from everything else. The bathrooms could use some updating. The WiFi was the only problem- typically only worked while everyone else was sleeping.

    Spacious 7-bed dorm with beautiful balcony, good kitchen to use, Kimironko market only 2 min walk away, easy to get around on motorbikes, super helpful staff. Wifi was good enough at night only, the dorm mattresses could be better...

    A nice basic hostel. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. Had a nice common area to chill. Is a short walk from the Kimironko Market. It's incredible easy and inexpensive to get around Kigali, so visiting other areas of the cities was not a problem.

    Close to the airport and Kimironko Market , so a good place to stay before your flight home and pick up some souvenirs at the market. Hostel is a bit out of the way of the main city area but easy access on moto taxis. Staff were nice and it was more of a guesthouse vibe than a hostel, similar to staying in someones house. People there were friendly and was easy to chat and get to know the other guests. Breakfast was tasty, good wifi , comfortable beds and house was nice and clean.

    When we arrived the only thing the manager asked about was the money. We couldn't even put down or bags. The rooms were clean, the bathroom and toilet not so much. We had to leave early for our flight and they promised us that breakfast was ready. But only half of breakfast was ready when we needed to leave. The mattresses weren't very good. And there were no mosquito net and a lot of mosquitos
