This is dreamlike hostel in the sand. You don't wear your shoes, because you just walk in the sand. The food is of a very good quality and the whole place has a very nice atmosphere to relax. There are four kite schools nearby and you definitivly should try it out in the shallow water, but don't forget to renegotiat... More

I traveled to Teddy's solo and couldn't be happier with my choice of a place to stay. The staff was great and very friendly - they helped with arranging taxi's and local adventures. Wifi was very strong (there were travelers working from there). Right away I meet several people that I ended up spending all 5 days there with. Such... More

You do not need to wear shoes on Teddys. The atmosphere is spectacular, very good food, and excellent breakfast to start the day's adventures in Zanzibar. The beach in front is one of the best in Zanzibar. The value for money is unsurpassed. Gladly return to this place the next time i will go to Zanzibar.

It's about an hours drive from Zanzibar airport but well worth it. Great location and great staff. Food is delicious. Good wifi and fantastic beach with activities available too. I stayed in a private bungalow which was very comfortable.

We stayed for a full week in the bungalow in New Teddy's place. It was the best place for us to stay in Paje. New Teddy's has a relaxed atmosphere and it's next to the kite-centre, where they have a special rate for new teddy's guests. The food they prepare is also fresh and really tasty.

Just a lovely place. I didn't wear shoes for a week. I developed a dependence on passion fruit juice that I will most certainly begin to feel the withdrawals from soon.

“The double bungalows ("bandas") are not woth the USD 50 you'll get charged. Sleep in the cheap dormitory (USD 19/night incl. breakfast) if you have to otherwise it really worth to put UDS 20-30 more and stay in a quite and friendly place!”
