Home Saint Jean


Home Saint Jean is located on a hilltop a 10-minute walk, or a 500 RwF moto-ride, from central Kibuye. 270 degree views of Lake Kivu. It is lakeside, but takes a couple minutes steep walking to reach the water. No beach however. Great staff, very friendly and helpful; they lended us towels for sunbathing by the lake, stored our luggage, called taxis and even went to the center to buy our bustickets! Rooms come in may different shapes, we shared a triple for 15,000 RwF in total, with bathroom, mosq nets, towels and sheets. Simply furnished and quite small but totally acceptable. Really nice view of the lake. The hostel offers boatrides to the islands at Lake Kivu.
