Property Description

SLEEP-EAT-EXPLORE

Once in Cape Town is a hostel for adventurous and young at heart travelers, 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, a great vibe, Safety and Good value for money.

Once in Cape Town is located in Kloofstreet a vibrant area in Cape Town with lots of nice restaurants, sites and activities. Down the Street you'll find the popular Longstreet famous for its bars and clubs, there you can find a bar for every taste, so perfect to party all night long, but far enough from the noise of the city. Not in the mood to venture out? Fear not! Our relaxing back area with self-catering kitchen, outdoor fire-pit and meditation garden gives you space to work and chill. We have 3 in-house restaurants - the gourmet burger joint, Hudsons; a restaurant called Today Tomorrow that plays tunes throughout the week with one Caveat - only vinyl DJ's and cafe deli: Yours Truly - our in-house cafe where breakfast is served. The deli transforms into a hip bar for day-time merriment, and is open until 11pm. Local Captonians love this place - perfect to meet local friends.

Reception and concierge are open 24 hours - book a surf lesson, a wine tasting trip, a visit to Cape Point, sky diving, shark cage diving and much more! Our staff love to travel and are city ambassadors who gladly answer all your questions and offer travel tips and advice. We invite you to join daily free activities like hiking Lions Head or watching the sunset at Signal Hill and make your stay unforgettable and meet new friends.

Every room is Ensuite with private bathroom (even dorms) so no awkward night meanders here! The dorm beds are custom-made extra length, with a safety locking box and charging space for your laptop etc. The private rooms offer hotel-like privacy along with DSTV.

    Simple but functional room and facilities. Great atmosphere in the bar area on the Friday night whilst I was there and within close walking distance of other bars and restaurants.

    Nice place to stay for visiting the city and table mountain but far away from Green Point and beach. Nice hostel with a lot of free activities and good place to get in contact with other travelers. Modern rooms. Recommend it but only for visiting some parts of Cape Town. Maybe change accommodation after 2 or 3 days?

    I enjoyed my stay. The staff was always very helpful. The partying is well controlled so it doesn’t interfere with sleeping.

    A nice hostel and great location. Would only stay here again if I was partying. We were put right beside the bar and the noise carried on all night. Not fun if you want to go to bed at a reasonable time.

    I got the room in the first floor and next to the bar and it was too noisy and not able to sleep. Those who like to drink and party its good but atlst the room should not be noisy. I will not suggest people here those who want to make and explore new friends
