Two months Spent at Zebra ... cant say i was sad to leave, but it was a pleasant experiance, a few odd people, but when do you stay at a hostel and not have odd people!? Brilliant location, and the taxis are cheap to get to other places to go. Never had a problem with security in the 2months, and if you are really worried you can leave any valuables in the safe at reception. We had issues with a German lady who was living there (oh, there are some 'residents') but you just had to ignor her. The Kitchen had everything you need (including a kettle which most EU hostels dont have!) except it did get crowded at dinner.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. And the sitting areas were comfortable and homely, theres even a piano!
Down points were the lack of fans - it got extremely hot and on a couple of occasions we would find ourselves sleeping in the lounges or outside! but during our stay the owner did bring some fans ... not enough but it was a start! and staying 2months with a dorm of 6girls and no wardrobes or drawers did get quite messy ... but i guess we were a oddity!
Free wifi was great to keep in contact with family and friends and overall was a great experience! .... 1 tip ... dont climb table mountain mid day!
