There is no internet access in new teddy's place. When you ask for internet access to the staff, they tell you to go paje by night location to get the internet.


The variaty of food could be bigger. If you don't eat sea food there are only few menues to order. My bed had bedbugs. It would be good to clean the bed better. But the atmosphere was great!!! Funny staff:-)

hostel was great. the floor was sand. the beach was amazing and close. staff friendly. also if you ceom from or go to stone town, GET A DALA DALA (local bus). its super cheap and fun... and not much difference in time ($2 vs $40 or more)


make no mistake, there is an original teddy and there is "new teddy". the one you suppose to chose is the new one. Paje is a place you'll have to use cash so be prepared. New Teddy has the best price/service ratio. especially if you are a solo traveler this is a good place to meet with other travelers and get some tips about which companies you can use, how you can go where. I had so many bad hotels before NT. When I found this hostel I was so happy that I stayed even longer.
