Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was great for me. The double gate system made me feel safe. I could do my own laundry. The food available was delicious. And it was nice and quiet, which was perfect after a long flight.

Disliked: Nothing. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Liked: We arrived at night and the taxi driver took us there (arranged for a good price by the hostel) and dropped us of at the gate. No staff there at this time but notes at the front door explaining where to go. Amazing place/ clean and super friendly staff

Liked: I basically signed up for HostelBookers just to review Zebra Crossing after I stayed there. That should tell you all you need to know about how much I enjoyed my stay here. Susan, and everyone of the workers there, are incredibly polite, helpful, and inviting. They'll help direct you with where you need to go, book whatever you need, and make sure you're taken care of. Highly recommend staying here!

Liked: The Zebra crossing is very close to the center ( walking distance from Long Street, but specially the also lively Kloof area). It has a gated off-street free parking for cars or motorbikes (in case you decided to rent one, which is highly recommended to visit the cape of good hope area). The staff at the front desk is helpful and very friendly (especially Stacey). There's free internet, showers and common areas are pretty clean, there's a cafe which serves breakfast and other drinks and dishes from around 8-20h... In short, there's everything you might need when looking for a budget accommodation.

Disliked: The biggest bummer is that there's no individual lockers to store your valuables, so either you deposit them in the front desk locker (only available from 8-20h) or you carry them with you. Also, there's no staff from 20h to 8h, and although I didn't need them, it's always good to have always staff on the premises, in case something happens, especially in accommodations where you share room with other 7 people.
