    Zebra Crossing was the first place I stayed in Cape Town and I had such a warm welcome. The staff and guests I met are super friendly and helped me to settle in here, and to understand how the city works, i.e. the do's and don'ts. The location is awesome too, right near Kloof St which has lots of funky places to eat and drink, and it's within walking distance of some cool hikes. If you want a friendly, laid-back place to stay in CT then look no further :)

    Really impressed by this place- it's small, it's quirky, the bathrooms are a bit rudimentary, and the staff was excellent. I got delayed and not only did they email me about it, they helped me adjust my plans and didn't charge me for the night I wasn't there. Shoutout to their excellent driver Craig, who picked me up from the airport and gave me a guided tour of the city en route. I was in a single room, which was clean, comfortable, and had a balcony with a view of Table Mountain.

    Great place to stay in Cape Town. Loved the location- close to long street and many bars/restaurants/shops. The staff were also so friendly and helpful!

    I traveled in the Cape Town area most of December with plans for staying in different hostels/inns...but once I stayed at Zebra Crossing I knew I had found my home. The staff are extremely attentive, helpful and all around nice humans - the desk managers, housekeeping, cafe and onsite transportation specialist Craig Lubbe made sure my stay was a happy one. I stayed in 3 different private rooms and all were quite comfortable...and the bed/bedding spectacular.

    Recommendable for all travellers and age !! Very helpful staff, good location to see bars and do trips, 12'by taxi from the beach but only5' to table mountain. Big kitchen, only 3 cooking plates but it always somehow worked. Rather poor and unreliable wifi but the problem was the cities network.There are also long term hosts that sometimes give great suggestions. DONT let cigarettes or lighters etc lie around they disappear in 5 min....:( food although labelled, got consumed by others

    Lovely staff , good food and a nice enough place but it was blazing hot when we arrived. Room was like an oven, no fan, no screens on windows so we were eaten alive by mosquitos. Was miserable! They were kind enough to let us out of our reservation and did not charge us for the night we stayed. We found other accommodations. Pricey for what you get and they def need to upgrade by providing fans and putting in screens. In my opinion, not is.

    Clean and very quiet (if there is no construction work at the opposite of the street), good location. The vibe was a bit weird, looks like they have a few older guests staying there for quite some time.
