Liked: Great atmosphere to meet people. Food is great. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly.

Disliked: There was NO water for a majority of my stay. Occasionally it was available in bathrooms on the lowest level of the property. This has been mentioned again and again in many reviews, and has not been fixed. The management states that it is a city-wide problem, which is difficult to believe.

Liked: Nice hostel--nice rooms, lots of bathrooms including en suite and hot water is usually available. Lots of nice communal areas (bar, multiple decks). Good free breakfast and cheap lunch buffet. It is a little bit out of town (500-700 Moto) but several good restauraunts and bars nearby. Free wifi that works well most of the time, and free bag storage. Staff was really friendly and helpful! (I also stayed at Discover Rwanda in Gisyeni and it was great as well)

Disliked: A little expensive, but so is everywhere in Kigali.

Liked: We had an amazing time at the hostel and in Rwanda! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions. There was a great relaxing area where you can use the wifi and another area for getting cold drinks! They have hot showers and a good breakfast in the morning. Location is perfect! Easy to use public transport around and get taxis if needed.

Liked: Great energy, decent breakfast included, not choked by the downtown, and helpful, charming staff.

Disliked: Not much. They should plane one of the bathroom stall door edges down as it tends to get stuck in the jam and then slam after you budge it even more to shut it. It woke me up once since I was sleeping right next to the bathroom. Given how attentive they are to the details here (they even had a big staff meeting while I was there!), this should be fixed in no time.
