Peponi Living Spaces was inspired by the concept of Hostal’s of Spain.
As per Wikipedia, a hostal is a type of lodging found mostly in Spain and Hispanic America. Hostales tend to be cheaper than hotels. They normally have a bar, restaurant or cafeteria where drinks and food are sold to guests and locals alike. Accommodations typically include private bedrooms, and sometimes apartments, available for either short or long term rent. Guests sometimes share a common bathroom, but some rooms with en-suite bathrooms may also be available.
Peponi means paradise in Kiswahili, we have added a little bit of our flavor to the whole concept of hostales by adding a Pool, Gym, Barbeque, a playground, and other recreational areas that can encourage engagement between our guest thus truly making a paradise.
The property is owned and run by the Nambiar family who has made Rwanda home for over 20 years now, Vysakh and Shereena are the resident members of the family at Peponi. Vysakh is a Photographer, and he takes all the pictures you find used as part of the decor in the property. They do know their way around Rwanda, and Kigali feel free to strike up a conversation, and they will be more than happy to give you their ideas on what to do and where to go regarding photography and travel experiences.
Peponi aims to be affordable yet friendly accommodation for travellers coming to Kigali.

Peponi is situated in the Kagugu area in Kigali. We are well connected by public transport to all parts of Kigali. Kagugu has the advantage of being near to the town yet quiet and serene.
