All in all, we stayed three nights in La Caverne. The prices are reasonable (about 7500-15000 RWF per night/person incl. breakfast, depending on the room and if you use the room as single or double bed room - try to pay in Rwandan Franc and not in Dollar though! Prices are much higher in US-Dollar), the stuff is quite friendly...

I was just in Kigali for a short time but would recommend Auberge La Caverne. It's just up the road from the central bus station and very conveniently placed for transit. The food was good and not too expensive, the room was clean and the shower was hot. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

The only place in East Africa worse than Jomo Kenyatta Airport that should tell you all you need to know.

we stayed for 11 nights. Location is excellent & central; the rooms and restaurant are tucked down an alleyway just behind street front buildings on a hilly slope near centre of Kigali. Rooms are all ground level situated in a courtyard type setting. Rates are very reasonable and good value with a couple options (we checked out 3 similar nearby...

My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights during our Round-the-world trip. We were kind of 'flash-packing' rather than backpacking so this place seamed like a good option. First night we stayed in one of the more mid-range doubles with a private bathroom. It was great. Heaps of space and big bathroom. There was also a nice little spot...

I've stayed here twice, and I think it's 20,000F for a double room w/breakfast. The hotel is nothing special, but it's perfectly fine, and about as good of a value as you're going to find in Kigali. It's close to downtown and UTC, and the rooms are clean and decent. The breakfast is standard Rwandan - bread, omelette, coffee/tea -...

A great find for the backpacker and budget traveler. The Auberge is not and does not try to be the Mille Collines. It is a travel hostel, but a comfortable, functional one with a great vibe, good water pressure and delicious, cheap breakfast. The staff is super helpful (Claude, who was there back in 2010, is now a pop star),...

“the mid room has a separate sitting room - ideal if you are working or want separate space from bedroom. for an extra 2,000 rwf, it is more than worth the upgrade.”
