A mere stone's throw away from the beach, Gisenyi's backpacker mecca is a relaxed and relatively orderly budget choice, with a full complement of facilities and hang-out areas in grassy grounds. The more expensive rooms and the eight-bed dorm occupy a former colonial building that brims with charm. The place has a very pleasant, convivial feel with an excellent bar and restaurant.
