We stayed at teddys from the 5th to 7th July. It is a beautiful place to stay especially in our own private huts. The staff were very friendly especially at the bar and made it very fun when we had a few drinks one night. It's perfect location as it's a 2 second walk to one of the most beautiful... More

The manager and team never feel like service providers but more like friends you are spending time with. This provided atmosphere is transferred to all guests. In combination with the rooms and bar on the white sands makes new teddy`s to the perfect and most familiar traveler place. First place to stay on Zanzibar!

We spent 3 nights at New Teddys as we were looking for somewhere cheap for our time in Zanzibar. The dorm room was similar to other Zanzibar hostels with a sand floor. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The bar was quite fun with nice bar staff. I agree with previous reviews however that the lady who owns the hostel... More

If you are looking for the following things, then New Teddy's is a fabulous place: budget accommodation (as far as we could tell, this is the cheapest place to stay in Paje), great location (although please note that it is not on the beach but rather inside a wall a few hundred meters from the beach), and lively social atmosphere....

Thank you for your review and the honesty. As you say we are one of the cheapest places in Paje and offer accommodation on a backpacker budget. Most of our guests love the sandfloor and we also promote that officially on our website. We are located quite near to the beach but have to deal with the located animals (insects/... More

We had a great time at New teddys place, but we thought it was a bit expensive, but maybe zanzibar in general is expensive, because this was the cheapest place we found in Paje. The rooms were ok, but it was sand all over the place. The dorms were walls and roof on the sand. It was a bit cool... More

Teddys is great value for the money you pay. Food is good and the location great, just 100m from the beach front. Staff is very friendly and helpful and did become friends of sort after one week there.
