Once in Cape Town

Once in Cape Town is a great hostel and everything about it exceeded my expectations. It’s your perfect base while in Cape Town. Located right in the centre of the Mother City on Kloof Street, it has the right mix of chilled hostel vibes, friendly staff and a great nightlife right at your doorstep.


What’s great is this hostel is attached to one of the best local hang outs/bars in Cape Town – Yours Truly. The rooftop bar is very cool and trendy and the perfect place to enjoy drinks, snacks and meet locals and other passerby’s.

I had an en-suite room, clean and tidy and quite  spacious, which had 2 comfy beds with crispy white linen sheets and fresh towels. They also offer dorm rooms so they cater for all. At midnight the music goes off at Yours Truly, so should you need an early start you will get a great night sleep. Or, you can venture elsewhere as the night life is not far.

I found the staff super helpful and friendly which made my stay so much more amazing.
They offer a complimentary breakfast which you can enjoy outside on the patio under the trees. They offer a croissant, fruit and coffee. Delicious!!! And the perfect way to start your day.They have a great system which works well. I got  my breakfast vouchers in my bedroom,  in the morning you hand it in at the bar and get your brekkie.


I thoroughly enjoyed my staycation in my home town at Once in Cape Town and would recommend it to others. They ticked all the boxes:

  • Great location
  • Neat and tidy rooms
  • Comfortable bed
  • Fresh towels
  • Amazing Staff
  • Great breakfast

5 Stars in my book for Once Cape Town!
