We stayed at Discover Rwanda Youth Hostel for 3 nights in February 2020, we really enjoyed and had a great atmosphere there. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner were delicious and always served in time. I recommend this hotel.

the staff were so helpful in finding us a car to rent as well as guiding us around Kigali and beyond. We - the few fellow travellers we met in the hostel and on our travels - got together and booked to go to Akegera via the hostel for an unforgettable experience.

I stayed here for about a week and a half and have nothing negative to say. Great overall value, HOT showers, tasty free breakfast (fruits, toast w/ butter and jam, tea, coffee, and an egg dish), and super kind staff! The location was unbelievably safe with tons of restaurants nearby and a pretty central location. Definitely would stay here again!

I stayed at Discover Rwanda for almost three weeks and would highly recommend it as a home base. The facilities were quiet, the breakfast was always fresh, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The area is quiet and very safe with great restaurants in the area. Staff are also great at helping plan excursions anywhere in the country, and can suggest accommodations, routes, and transportation. Overall, a wonderful place in Kigali!

Nice hostel with friendly staff who really wanted to help you organise things like bustrips and taxis. The hostel is close to good restaurants and 2 supermarkets. The breakfast is nice and there are hot showers!
