We booked a double room with Sagando Hostel but they put us in a single room in an attic. The sloped ceiling was so low we were hitting our heads on the roof & so was the fan. The mosquito net also had large holes, the water worked half the time & there was no light in the bathroom so we asked to change rooms. They didn't have another room, admitted that our room was supposed to be a single and not a double and gave us a considerable discount. The owner is nice but I wouldn't stay there again.


Great food!

a very nice relaxed place. Very convenient to hang out in the Hostel-Area/Garden. Beach is less than 5 minutes away.


Good value. Very close to the beach. Good food from the restaurant. Staff is so friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. It is far from anything though. If you need anything (like snacks or cash) bring it from Stone Town or Dar. This place is remote. There is a fancier resort next door where you can get a drink ($10 bill minimum for non-guests) and watch the sun set. Atmosphere was pretty good, there are multiple hammocks and a nightly bonfire. If you want remote paradise at a good price, this.


Very nice place! Wonderful beach and the master is so friendly , juice is delicious!
