Experience Rwanda’s $19-a-night Migrant Haven – Kick Back with Football, WiFi, and Scenic Views!

Asylum seekers flown to Rwanda will stay in a £19-a-night hotel that boasts a football pitch, Wi-Fi and rural views.

Images of the hotel the migrants will processed in for the first three months of their time in the east African country have been released. The accommodation has 50 twin rooms and according to Tripadvisor reviews it looks out over the surrounding hills.

However, before being shown into their rooms at Hope Hostel, new arrivals will need to pass through airport-style metal detectors and bag scanners.

After members of the House of Lords holding up the Rwanda Bill backed down, it quickly passed, prompting Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to declare that “nothing will stand in our way” of flights taking off.

However, legal challenges are expected to try and thwart Mr Sunak’s plan, meaning that for the time being Hope Hostel may not see any asylum seeker arrivals. However, the PM has vowed not to allow the European Court of Human Rights to prevent the scheme from going ahead.

The Tory leader said: “The passing of this landmark legislation is not just a step forward but a fundamental change in the global equation on migration.

“We introduced the Rwanda Bill to deter vulnerable migrants from making perilous crossings and break the business model of the criminal gangs who exploit them.

“The passing of this legislation will allow us to do that and make it very clear that if you come here illegally, you will not be able to stay.

“Our focus is to now get flights off the ground, and I am clear that nothing will stand in our way of doing that and saving lives.”

  1. As a frequent traveler, I believe providing asylum seekers with humane accommodations and necessary facilities like football pitch and Wi-Fi is commendable. It’s crucial to uphold safety measures at the entry points, but legal challenges should be carefully considered to ensure fair treatment for all.

  2. Do asylum seekers have the option to participate in any organized activities at the hotel besides soccer? Will there be any cultural orientation programs available to them during their stay?
