About the property

Once in Cape Town is a brand new design hostel in Cape Town, opened in November 2013! It is a hop, skip and a jump away from Cape Town’s tourist destinations, beaches and most importantly – the local’s favourite spots to hang out and soak up the Mother City.



Once in Cape Town includes custom made beds made for travellers on the go – with locking charging boxes and a reading light per bed, extra length, extra thick mattresses, locking lockers and soft white linen – guaranteeing a great sleep. The hostel provides a range of accommodation options from en-suite shared rooms to single, double, twin and family rooms, each with a private bathroom.


Common areas, services and activities

Breakfast is included at our onsite restaurant, 'Yours Truly' which also offers options for lunch and dinner, and has a well-stocked bar open until 11pm. Budget conscious? No worries as we also have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen for all your cooking needs. You will remain connected to home with our ultra-fast free WiFi and all your travel bookings can be catered for at the travel desk located in the Explore Section of reception. We also offer free parking.



Once in Cape Town is in a prime location in the heart of Kloof Street, with beautiful views of Table Mountain and a range of restaurants and bars right on your doorstop. Staying here also puts you just a 5 minute walk from bustling Long Street, the place to go if you enjoy sampling the local nightlife, and 30 minutes from the stunning V&A Waterfront for a more chilled atmosphere and a range of shopping options. If museums are the order of the day there are many options within walking distance.


Why you should stay here

Once in Cape Town is the perfect accommodation for adventurous and young at heart travellers, where you can tailor make your own experience. We believe that when travelling, the four most important elements of that “Once in a lifetime” experience include: Great Location, Comfort, Safety and Good value for money – and this is what we are proud to bring to you at Once. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
