    The best hostel I've been to in Africa, great social atmosphere created by great facilities...they have a bar that's popular with locals and expats, a volleyball court, a swimming pool, pool table, restaurant aswell as Rwanda's only bowling alley! Staff were great and very helpful. There is no point staying elsewhere...seriously

    10/10! Amazing place to stay with a very good vibe. Rooms are very clean and the area is safe to walk around at night. During the evening the bar is also very popular with locals and expats. The food in the restaurant is very good. We could even join the owner on a safari to Akagera national park where a hippo almost charged at us. One of the experiences you will never forget. The staff is very friendly and can give you all kind of advise. I would definitely book here if you are in Kigali!

    Staying at mambas club was very nice. The bar is quite busy and the volleyball-field + pool attracts also many locals and creates a enjoyable place to hang out!

    The hostel was clean. Good WiFi. Manager was nice & helpful, but the other staff had difficulty speaking English so that had an impact on the service. Dorms were big & comfy. There was a problem with the door going up into the dorms from the stairs. Even some staff couldn’t open it - so going upstairs became a real frustration. It is a party hostel, so there’s always music & people. Many locals seem to like it as a hangout spot, but I find Rwandans to be rather cliquey - not the hostel’s fault.

    Very Good

    The common areas are cool. They have a pool, a bowling alley (apparently the only one on Rwanda), pool table, a volley ball court and other forms of entertainment. Dinner was good. My private room looked clean but had a weird moldy smell and the bathroom had a lot of standing water on the floor. I am from the US, so perhaps my threshold for heat is a little different but i felt very hot in the room, even with the windows down. They had no fan. I ended up staying only 1 night of the 2 i booked

    Very Good

    Our room was not available on arrival, but the manager arranged for us to stay in a place nearby, which was fine. Though we chose the place because we thought there might be a good atmosphere which we werent able to experience as we didn't get to stay there... seemed to be a nice hangout place though. The bar was fairly busy in the evening.

    DON’T stay here if you need to store your luggage, you might miss your flight!! I stopped by to pickup my luggage at 5:15pm but Desire wasn’t here and only he has the key. His staff called him, I told him my flight is 7pm he said he is on his way back. 30 minutes passed I called again be said 5 min. Eventually he got back 6:15pm and by the time I got to the airport checkin was closed. I bought a new ticket, he said he would pay me but never replied my text later.
