Great people, great food and great drinks. While being there during the Ramadan does subdue the atmosphere quite a bit, I found the quiet setting equally satisfying.

Basic huts but charming - sandy floors and dim lighting. Bathrooms clean. Great raised terrace area with view to the sea. Some of the staff really friendly but variable. They put lots of drinks on our tab which should have been charged to other guests and that took a while to sort out. Food was pretty average and often a long wait. Busy even in low season which made for a fun but relaxed vibe. Paje is obviously windy, beach is beautiful, shallow sea as tidal. We enjoyed our stay.


New Teddy's was a really great place to stay because of the atmosphere and value for the money and all the other young travellers it was possible to meet there. I'd like to suggest that the hostel would invest on individual safety lockers for each guest. Add some sockets where people can charge their phones. Include the internet to the price. It feels stupid to pay for it every day.

We really enjoyed our stay at New Teddy's, the staff were great and did their best to promote a fun atmosphere. The included breakfast was available until 1100. The rustic cabin was comfortable with a good fan and shelving. The shared showers were large and the water pressure was excellent. It was nice that they had contacts for booking assorted tours though we do hope they reconsider promoting the "swim with dolphins" excursion as it turned out to be chase and harass the dolphins.
