We stayed 2 nights at Zebra Crossing and it was a great place, the hosts are very helpful and Bronwyn in the cafe is a wealth of knowledge, it is clean, tidy and the bed and pillows were just like home. It is central to the sights like Table Mountain, and a 5 minute walk to long street. Highly recommend...

Our staying here was fine but our major point here was our car. The staff told us it would be safe on the parking lot some distance away but next morning a window was smashed and what was still in our car was gone! Should have told us we should speak to security that is present but only looks after...

I stayed there for a couple nights, and it was a pretty good stay. The staff was really nice, always available to help you and give you ideas about what to do in the city. It's well located, very close to the Table Mountain and the Lion's Head. Although the internet didn't work very well in the room, the overall...

More importantly it's just a really lovely hostel - in very good condition with comfortable furnishings, a well-equipped kitchen, excellent wifi, and best of all lovely lovely people. The owner Darryl is...

Organised trip from the uk with our university. The hostel was good and cheap, and only a few minutes walk away from the town area. Very secure and staff friendly. Would definitely recommend if you are wanting a cheap basic accommodation for a few days.

Dirty bed sheets....even after request for clean ones, still had stains, no atmosphere, one gets the impression someone owns and runs this begrudgingly.....sorry......no love here. Good hot showers though, generally clean besides bed linen. Good position and surrounded by strong competitors.

“avoid dorm no1 it resembles a doss house with certain guests storing food, tea, coffee by their beds, after one night I moved.”

“We enjoyed the private room as opposed to the dorm style. The only snag is that bathrooms are downstairs and it's open-air, which can be chilly in the winter months.”

“Room 13 is a nice double room, next to it there is a bathroom. The rooms opposite the kitchen can be very noisy.”
