About us:  Once in Cape Town was founded in 2013 by five entrepreneurs who have in common: We love to travel and have a strong spirit of adventure.  As young at heart as we are,  we have experience in the hotel industry, hostel and Backpacking in Cape Town and South Africa. Once in Cape Town is a combination of all our passions – an “All Star Hotel” where you can tailor-make your own experience.

What does All-star mean? All our rooms include: a Breakfast on the Go from Yours Truly café, Free fast Internet, access to a self-catering kitchen and 24 hour reception.

Our second floor rooms are classic budget hotel rooms with all the necessary amenities of a 3 star hotel in Cape Town: private bathroom, TV, safe and all linen.  Click here for more info on our private rooms.

Our first floor comprises our Hostel or Backpackers in Cape Town – here you have the option of paying a little less for your bed – you will share the room with three new friends. This is not your average hostel – each bed is custom made (extra length) with high quality soft white hotel linen, a reading light and locking locker to charge your electronics at night too. Every shared room has a private bathroom.  Click here for more info on our shared rooms.

The Third floor houses our long term guests who are staying for longer than one month – Click here for more info on our long term rooms.
