Cyusa is a really warm, funny and intelligent young boy. Don't let his boyish looks deceive you, though. He can pull off some intense intellectual conversations as well! In addition to being welcomed into a cozy home, I was also made to feel deeply cared for. Yes, that's right! Cyusa ensured I ate all my meals well, picked me up from the bus station when it was really late and also made sure that I got all the tips and advice I needed to explore Rwanda. The location of the house is perfect, close to the American Embassy and the major attractions such as the Genocide memorial. There are nice restaurants a boda ride away. The house is 2 kms away from the Nyabugogo bus station. The room was nice with a large queen bed and some basic furniture. Mosquito nets and a cabinet to store belongings were provided too. The house has a spacious living room and a fairly equipped kitchen. The bathroom is clean and spacious , however, there were no hot water showers while I was there. I enjoyed cold showers nonetheless but I guess Cyusa plans on fixing this. Cyusa also has two beautiful puppies that I played with one cold evening. They mostly hang out in the backyard and not inside the house. Also, all my pre-arrival questions were answered promptly on phone/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). I would totally recommend Cyusa's place for a warm, fuzzy and relaxing stay in Kigali.

Cyusa's home is lovely. Located just a short walk from the American Embassy and the main avenue with all the other embassies, the house is well located and easy to reach. The room is comfortable and quiet and is just what you need for your stay in Kigali. The housekeeper and guard are both very nice and Cyusa is a great host - willing to go above and beyond for his guests. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a welcoming room in a true Rwandan home.

Interaction with guests

We will be available to help you and give recommendations throughout your stay. For your arrival, there are cabs at the airport, but let us know if you want us to send one to wait for you. If you want to hang out and go around the city, we can show you around. If you want to be left alone, we can do that. We can show you resources for learning survival Kinyarwanda.

Keep in mind that we also live in the house. We cook every day, and we like to have quiet movie nights in the living room.
