Cheap quiet and central. Rooms were very warm with no fan but clean. Shared bathrooms small but with hot water. Simple included breakfast. Good location for a quick stopover or to be close to the centre of town.

i can recommend the Procure de La Famille - while i stayed there for a low 8$ (=5000RWF) i met a few interesting travellers (Kenya ice-cream entrepreneur, theology professor, etc) and had a pleasant breakfast one morning; if you can upgrade to the ensuite bathroom,. do it; on commercial terms - the room should cost 3 times as much. i...

Reviewed 18 November 2008

Situated next to the Church of St Paul in the centre of town, and run by some rather amusing 'wheeler-dealer' nuns, Hostel St Famille is not really a very good place to stay. Most rooms (6000 RwF) have a communal toilet/shower area, whilst the 'luxury' option (10000 RwF) has en suite bathroom. The rooms are not decorated, nor are they...
