Very good location, neighbourhood. Breakfast was good, just be patient, sometimes you get it at 7:30-8:00 some other time 9:30-10:00. Staff was nice and polite. It is more a recreative place/bar than a hostel, so you can enjoy a lot of activities days and night (ping pong/pool table/outside pool/bowling/sand volleyball). Got a private room with ensuite bathroom, I had to make sure I got it, the guy at check-in tried to give me shared bathroom.. No housekeeping during my 4 nights stay.

I went to the hostel thinking it will be a hostel but it was actually a bar. I turned around and left and booked myself in a hotel. I guess Rwanda isn’t built for backpackers and maybe my expectations were too high. I would recommend booking into hotels in Rwanda.
