    Great hostel, located right on the beach in Zanzibar with the friendliest staff. Breakfast is included and is excellent (as was every other meal I had - you can't miss the local seafood!). The team is there to help with whatever you need, and they can organise any activities you want for a great price.

    One of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. The fact that prices for food and drinks are expensive for Zanzibar (still affordable for tourists), that you have to wait a little bit to get served (hey, it's Zanzibar and you are on vacations🏖️) and that there exists only 1key for dormitoriy rooms (which can be annoying) doesn't make a big impact on my overall experience 😉 Would recommend, it's little paradise on Earth 🏝️ But please, don't just stay inside of hostel. Go. Explore! ☀️

    Amazing atmosphere, special mention to bar staff Rafa, Mo and Kooba for everything. The hostel was very housekeeping proud and all the staff were attentive and never stopped. They also made a big effort with all guests to be friendly, learn names and join in with laughter. The bar was great and very fairly priced for both food and drink, which were the best we had in Tanzania, everything was fresh and nothing bought in. The only complaint - the bed in room Ganda needs replaced, not comfortable.

    Had such a wonderful time in Jambiani, mostly thanks to New Teddy’s and their wonderful staff! Breakfast everyday was great, our private room was cleaned daily and the pool with Indian Ocean views was a dream! Highly recommend!

    Stayed here with four friends. Our room was really nice and comfortable. The pool area, bar and restaurant were all lovely with loads of places to relax. The staff were very nice and helpful. Unfortunately there were huge variations with the food. One day it was nice and the next, the same dish was awful and completely different. Also the music plays loudly from early on and often doesn't suit the atmosphere. This is especially true on a Sunday when the DJ started blaring music from 11am.

    Amazing location, right on a beautiful beach but slightly set back so you can be private if you want. Breakfasts are great and the staff do their best to sort out anything you want, super helpful and friendly.

    The most picturesque hostel on the island. The beach and pool are fantastic. However it's a shame about the staff. They are extremely slow at making drinks, and organising things. I was very disappointed with them seeing as everywhere else I have stayed we have always been made to feel welcome! The food is ok but takes a long time. And everything is so overpriced. I recommend going to the pizza place 10 min walk. Be warned the showers are freezing and sandy beds!

    Beautiful spot and really enjoyed the food! Unfortunately management is poor, Leoni was very passive aggressive by email and never spoke to me in person about my problems with booking or the fact that I missed my first night from a flight cancellation. I loved the hostel atmosphere, but they treat you differently when you are ready to check out. Money talks. Don’t think I’ll be back to New Teddy’s. They don’t know customer care.
