I stayed in a private single for two nights and had a great visit. The staff was super kind, everything was clean, and the cafe was a great perk. Also, the location is perfect for walking everywhere!


Perfect location, close to the center and even though close to a main road it is very quiet during the night. Nice small cafe inside.


The hostel was excellent, I stayed in a single room which had a heater and a very warm duvet. Showers were cold with a couple of groups staying there. Kitchen included kettle, microwave and small stove for cooking with pots and pans available. Was a bit grotty as people have to clean up after themselves. Perfect location, short walk to Long Street. On a non-cloudy day, you can see Table Mountain full from the front of the hostel. Host was friendly, very helpful and pleasant.


The hostel is safe, clean and good value for money. However, there should be no smoking inside the hostel's compound. Clients were smoking just outside their rooms near to the office and kitchen.

The toilets and showers are outside, on a cold rainy night, you would rather not want to experience getting wet just to go to the loo. I believe in summer it will be ok


I had a lovely stay here over a weekend. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, as were the occupants. The location is superb (a five minute walk from one of the busiest streets in Cape Town), very close to a taxi rank and relatively close to Table Mountain. Zebra Crossing itself is a wonderful hostel which is clean and very cool - I would have my breakfast in the courtyard and be able to see Table Mountain from my chair. Thoroughly recommended and I'll be staying again!
