This is really nice place for having beach-style accommodation. You will leave in traditional cabanjas without floor, you will have delicious breakfasts and great choice of foods for lunch and dinner. The service is not super fast, but what is the reason to hurry up when you are at Zanzibar? :) All private and common areas are super clean. Cleaning...

The staff here are awesome, so friendly and they create such a good vibe that is perfect for solo travelers and groups alike. The big dorms are lovely (no bunks, lots of fans, and cool) and the breakfasts (included for free) are nice as well. The bar is social and is easy to meet people, and Vicki ( Ze crazy...

We visited New Teddys Place several times for both drinks and foods - ideal place for backpackers and budget travellers! Accommodation are simple but all you need and only a few steps from the beach and the kite areas. The value for money is one of the best in Paje, and the burgers or the guacamole or the juices or...

My brothers and I had a fantastic stay at New Teddy's Place! The atmosphere is so fun and welcoming with a big "Karibu!" sign overhead as you enter the main hang-out area. There are beautiful cabanas and an open, laid-back bar area with music, a volleyball court, a slackline, hammocks, outside beds/lounge area, etc. and cool activities (a wind-surfing shop...

Teddy's a great place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy the perfect weather in zanzibar beach. The bar serves drinks at good prices and...

Overall, not impressed. Staff were friendly, but that was strong point. The sand on the floors is more obnoxious than anything; I thought it was be done differently. The mosquito nets were not good either and I was sweating to death while being eaten alive. The breakfast was quite small. Security for the dorms did not have lockers and one...

Dear Jared. Thanks a lot for your review. Critical voices are always a bummer of course but as we are trying to get better I am also grateful. What do you mean in terms of thinking the sand would have been made differently? And why were you eaten alive? Whats wrong with the nets? I have checked all beds from...
