A few friends and I stayed here for four nights - friendly staff, great food, and by a beautiful beach. The beds were comfortable and the bungalows were cleaned regularly. Highly recommend a stay here!

We were staying at the New Teddy's Place for two nights and enjoyed every moment! The bungalows were wonderful, nicely decorated and "beachy" in a good way. But the best part was the staff!! They were so nice and helpful, really made us feel like home. :) <3 We'll definetely come back to New Teddy's Place!

Laid back backpacker vibe. Good food, very close to the beach, not far from other restaurants, kite schools and dive center. Good organization. Super friendly Manager Leonie! Just go for it! Definitely one of the best places during my time in Tanzania.

New Teddy's place is like little paradise inside paradise island! Great stuff always ready for good fun and party. The food there is the best on the island!

I have backpacked around for a while and have seen many different places. Teddy's New place is a good one for sinlge travellers or groups. The manager is European, the stuff is very helpful, food is good, hammocks, the beach is 50m away, free wifi. Very easy-going vibes in the evenings. Beds are comfy.

My impression is that place survives on old glory and kindness of stuff. All workers are nice, and cook is genius but SHOWER is essential need and even more when people are surrounded with sand. Shower should have more then one jet, cold water is not pleasant, an on top of that it shouldn't stop running every time someone uses...

I was looking for a small piece of paradise and found exactly that at New Teddy's Place. Beach huts, hammocks and a great atmosphere on one of the best beaches in the world make this the best hostel I have stayed in. You will not be disappointed....
