OUR ETHOS

Once in a Lifetime travel experiences - brought to you by locals

'Once' has grown into a travel and lifestyle brand where we are defined and inspired by our people - the inclusive and diverse Once A-team - who are passionate about showcasing the beautiful cities they live in.
Born in 2013, our first “all star hotel” was aptly named “Once in Cape Town.” A hybrid hotel model, that straddles the line between three star hotel and the most vibrant backpackers hostel you’ve ever stayed at - bringing out the best elements of these two accommodation types.

"This hostel is da bomb diggity. The place in itself is amazing, plus staff are friendly and organize a free activity everyday so that you can enjoy the city and meet new people. The two bars are just amazing and they let you enjoy a safe night every night without even having to leave the hostel!"

Eds review on Once in CT

"Once is very inviting, the facade draws you in, with lovely plants, the staff are eager and well trained, My room was well laid out with a great view of Table Mountain. Attention had been given to detail and the overall vibe is that of fun and good service."
