Liked: Close to the airport and convenient

Disliked: Have to order food 2 hours in advance, no ATM's there...or anywhere in Rwanda for that matter...will take North American debit OR credit cards, was only there for a layover and was too noisy to sleep until pretty late at night

Liked: Great backpacker vibe with a wonderful communal space. They play movies every Sunday night and it's a great way to get to know other travelers. Rooms are nice and spacious too! Breakfast was great...lots of fruits, toast, and coffee/tea!

Disliked: Kind of far from the main city centre (about a 500 franc moto ride) but still lots to explore in the area!

Liked: The other people staying at the hostel were very friendly.

Disliked: The dorms are very noisy. You can feel the bed slats through the matress, and the pillow was very flat and uncomfortable.

Liked: It definitely has a good vibe. It was the only hostel I knew of, and it attracts a lot of people. Really accommodating staff.

Disliked: Breakfast is first come first served, with not nearly enough food for everyone. Severe shortage of toilets and showers. Possibly the most expensive place I stayed in East Africa. Charging the same for renting a tent as bringing your own = makes no sense
