    A great hostel in a really nice part of town. Great chill out spaces with a nice little garden and despite there being no lockers it felt very safe to leave your stuff in your room. It's in a quiet part of town but there are a number of restaurants around. Staff were very helpful too. Only downside was my dorm room had no natural light so felt a little dingy.

    Mijo is a lovely place to stay in a great location, near plenty of restaurants and easy to reach key places in Kigali. In a secure neighbourhood - I felt fine walking alone at night. The hostel is designed beautifully with lots of lovely open social spaces to chill out in. Views are lovely! More lockable storage units for each dorm bed would be great, but you can leave valuables at reception. Wifi was generally good. Tasty breakfast included and I loved the water filter to save plastic bottles!

    Really nice place, helpfull staff and great atmosphere. The only thing missing is a place, where you can lock some of your things in. The doors to the doorms are never locked, so you always have to bring your most important valuables with you around.

    The staff at mijo were lovely. The common area was so nice and open and communal, with a great view of the city. The rooms were okay. The boys dorm was a little cramped and dark. Beds were clean and comfortable.

    While this is absolutely the best hostel in Kigali for many reasons, they have one serious flaw... there are no lockers in the dorms at all. My friend had over $200 US dollars stolen from his bag. The police had to come to the hostel and it was a big deal. It would take minimal effort and funds to install some type of basic locker system at the hostel. I've read about this same issue in other reviews of this place. Please, Mijo, install lockers at your hostel. Your guests will appreciate it.

    Staff were friendly, and there is clean drinking water for guests. The four of us shared a 4-bed dorm downstairs which was cramped and dark. Sharing it with people you don't know might be a bit uncomfortable. The rooms upstairs looked much bigger and lighter, so see if you can stay in one of those. The women's shared shower/toilet area was fine, but in the men's bathroom downstairs there was no sink so they had nowhere to brush their teeth (they had to use the sink in the women's).

    Mijo is aesthetically one of the most pleasant and nice hostels I have stayed at. The staff are very helpful, friendly and attentive. My only complaint is that there was never anyone checking in on the restrooms to make sure everything was stocked and clean. I also got some of the worst nights of sleep of my life because the other guests came in loudly at every hour at night and other alarms would go off at 5 am. Opt for a private room if you are on a work schedule or needing regular sleep!

    Great place and cosy common area! Only complaint is that breakfast could have been a bit more generous.
