    A great place to stay if you travel solo as well as in groups. We had the best time staying there and we met a lot of great people staying/ hanging out at mamba. The staff was super chill and easy to make arrangements with. We came back on several occations during our trip and there was never any trouble on their part to make sleeping arrangements for us. We will be back again for sure!

    This place is a fantastic budget option with amazing atmosphere. In addition to lots of artists and foreign workers passing through, it’s also become a local hangout with kigalians looking to play volley ball, relax pool side, or go on an awkward first date at the bowling alley. Very unique. Private rooms are spare, but functional. Showers are probably the hottest in East Africa.

    Location was a little far off from the main city. Staff was friendly but they are hard to catch! They seem to be overworked - and have no time to deal with enquiries and requests. Reception is not clear.

    Taking a shower is like Russian Roulette here... Sometimes boiling water, sometimes ice cold water then no water. Bathroom had definite issues. Not sure if bed bugs or something else was the issue since all my bites and others occurred in their bed. Internet was ok but it was not stable.

    Mamba is great value for money. Clean! We had booked the dorm with the bunk beds but they were fully booked with a group when we arrived so we got the private room... unsure if they even had our booking to be honest, but wasn’t going to complain! There’s no reception so just ask people until you find the host to check in :) We were there over the weekend and on the Friday night the music was loud! There’s free breakfast which we weren’t made aware of until the second morning but was great!

    It was a bit hit and miss. Bad points: Despite having security doors, they were left open. Dorms and toilets grubby. Toilet pedestal in women's loo leaking dirty water across floor. No hooks in shower room, nowhere to hang clothes. Dirty shower curtains and lack of privacy. Was a bit prison like. Bit far from centre. Good points: Good breakfast and nice breakfast staff. Good bar and rec areas. Nice balcony (but dirty) Safe area with a few nearby restaurants. Good mozzie nets.
