We stayed at New Teddy's for 2 nights and were happy enough to leave after that. It's close to the beach, breakfast is okay, bathroom was cleaned regularly (only cold showers), food in the restaurant was good but not the cheapest. The main issue was the dormitory. There were 6 empty beds when we arrived and all of them were...

Just spent the last 5 nights at Teddy's and would highly recommend it. The place is so relaxed, clean and the rooms are great. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beautiful beach. The best part though are the amazing staff, i cannot praise them enough, always happy and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The next time I'm...

Awesome place if your are travelling solo. Lot of backpackers crowd. Very clean and authentic. Staff is amazing. Food at the bar is little expensive, but that is the norm in Zanzibar. In the night you can see milky way galaxy as the night sky is super clear.

It's a unique place, located almost at a beautiful beach, very simple and clean, with very friendly and helpful staff and the best coctails ever :) It also offers all possible trips around the island. An african party every Saturday, good food and a great atmosphere every day. I've got very good memories from there!

Kite paradise. Staff members are totally cool. Place and bungalows are amazing and lovely. Clean and safe relaxing place. Maybe the best location at Jambiani. You have chance to visit Dolphin bay and Jozani forest in the very easy way from Teddy

Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. Very good vibes all around - if you are chill out, relaxing or drinking at the bar. Dorm comfortable and clean and i think the most cheapest in Paje also. Toilette and bathroom very very clean, breakfast very good. Absolutely lovely place to stay!!! Hope to come back again :-)

- Population: 97% German between 18 and 24 years old. - Very noisy because the bungalows (bandas) are around the restaurant/bar which is open till midnight and plays loud music. Every Saturday it stays open till 3 am! The neighbour location, the "Old Teddy's Place", plays loud music as well, and on Wednesday till 3 am. - Often the bar...

I've stayed at New Teddy's place more times than I can count on one hand and I've been there to eat and enjoy the laid-back vibe even more times. It has become one of my favorite places on Zanzibar. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys hanging out with other travelers and locals. Going there alone is never a...

New Teddy's really is a nice place to stay. It's designed to give you the most relaxed island feeling. The cabins are basic, yet charming. There were, however, a couple of holes in our muscito net, which resulted in a dozen bites during the first night. The shared bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The only disadvantage of New Teddy's,...

“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!”
