Sagui Hostel is a very good place for spending some quiet relaxed time near to the beach, and I especially recommend it for families. Daniela the host was very nice and welcoming of me during my five days stay at Sagui. However, it did not work out between us, and so Daniela helped me find another place to volunteer, and everything was good for both sides eventually.
In the future, I am planning to visit Sagui again as a guest to spend some quiet time there, because it is the perfect place for that!

Realmente incrível, encontrei uma família na Ilha da Magia. Super recomendado, o hostel é maravilhoso e as pessoas também, galera super divertida e empática e excelente escolhas musicais para o café da manhã. Além de que Florianópolis é linda, uma cidade mágica.

A primeira e, com certeza, a melhor experiência da minha vida. Um lugar cheio de pessoas dispostas a ensinar e aprender. Muito afeto, muita confiança e muito aprendizado. Samba Sagui, samba que os males espanta! Não poderá existir lugar melhor para deixar um pedacinho do coração

Sagui Hostel was my first experience as Worldpacker and I couldn't have started it better. Hostel is great, comfortable, close to the beach and very relaxing. The staff is like a big happy family and I have learnt a lot from each one of them. "Mom" Daniela is always full of energy and has such a very good vibe! It was an amazing experience and I had I wonderful time here.
Thank you so much Sagui team, miss you all already!
