We stayed at New Teddy's Place for three nights. We had an enjoyable time, although it wasn't exactly what we were expecting. In the evenings we were expecting a chilled and relaxing friendly atmosphere, but it was more like a loud party atmosphere with dance music until the early hours, 5am on Sunday morning, so take ear plugs if you...

New Teddy's Place is a not the relaxing hostel in paradise as it is advertised. It is a night club with beds for people to pass out in. If you want to stay up late listening to bad dance music at an extremely high volume, stay here! After reviewing the New Teddy's Place website online, we booked two nights in... More

We are really sorry and sad the same time about this bad review. We explained that all our bungalows have different styles some with loftbed some with concrete floor and kingsize bed. After your complaining in the morning I excused myself to you for the loud music in the night and asked friendly if you asked the bartender yourself to... More

Absolutely lovely place to stay - right on the best beach in Zanzibar! We stayed in the dorm which was perfectly clean and comfy, had lots of room for our luggage and was the cheapest we could find in Paje. Bathrooms were shared but clean. Lovely bar and chill out area with hammocks and comfy sofas, as well as a... More

The most amazing place to stay in Paje! This place is perfect for young travelers who love to stay in paradise but only live on a low budget like us. It is not only perfect for backpackers (single, couple or group of friends), but also for kite surfers. We enjoyed going kiting right in front of the accommodation, having a... More

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!

I´ve been at New Teddy´s in April. It was my second stay over there and I didn´t expect it to be even better than the first one. But in fact it was. I only wanted to stay there for a few days and ended up staying there for two weeks in total. You will find just the perfect mixture of... More

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
