Really great value for money and the staff were lovely and helpful. Onsite cafe was cheap too and very handy. If you're into going to bed early, be aware some guests were a bit noisy until 11.30 ish (this didn't bother me as I go to sleep about midnight) and there is also traffic noise (to be fair there's not much that can be done about that!) Overall a bargain close to the center of Cape Town, and very secure.

Lovely place with very friendly and helpful staff. Well cleaned every day. A bit cold in September as everything is quite open.

I had a wonderful time at the Zebra. The staff Katrin, Donila and Resh were very helpful and accommodating. I would visit them again if I ever return and will suggest to all my friends too. Thx Gloria
