Stayed in a cottage upstairs which looks great until you need to sleep - it was incredibly hot. There is nice food available but it takes forever to come out and isn't cheap. Unfortunately no beach frontage so you have to walk through scrub to get there. Great to have access for a US$10 min spend to the resort 30m down the road. Very quiet at night when we were there.


Great place, the beach is amazing, exactly what you would expect from Zanzibar. Although the place is cheap, food, drinks and activities are a bit overpriced for hostel standards. A taxi ride from Stone Town should not be more than 40'000 shillings.


We loved everything over there! Sagando was excellent, we were just a little worried about when a few local guys moved in there with their own tent. It made it look a bit dodgy. Overall, Sagando was absolutely fantastic, clean, hot water and working toilet. It was definitely value for the money and genuinely we recommend it to any travellers in all age groups. Beautiful, detailed deco and great entertainment! We will go back! Warren and Terella

Staying at Sagando Hostel was a wonderful experience-full of delicious food, happy people, + good vibes. The environment is relaxing, the staff members are friendly, and the accommodations are well-kept. The hammocks are nice to lounge around in during the day and the hostel is a short walk from the ocean. When one of my friends and I became sick from dehydration, the employees prepared us a traditional tea remedy made from a root they dug up specifically for us...AWESOME customer service :)
