OUR ETHOS

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

Once Travel is an accommodation concept designed to bring together new ways of travelling with the new age traveller. We combine the luxuries of a boutique hotel and energy of a backpackers hostel, offering a mix of affordable and design led accommodation types.

Beyond this, we are a lifestyle and travel brand that promotes and offers everything in African youth culture such as fashion, multi day music festivals, food and drink, and inclusive and authentically local experiences.

"The hostel is awesome!! The rooms are beautiful and the beds very comfortable. Braam is a cool part of the city especially with the night clubs. What I loved the most is that the stuff team directly treats you like friends. Thank you zodwa and Marvin for the great time in joburg!!!" - Vidic1108

Great location & atmosphere!

''Once in Joburg is a really nice hostel. The rooms are very clean, there are a lot of facilities, a kitchen, lounge area and cafe which serves breakfast included in the price. The hostel organises many activities and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Located in the nice area of Braamfontein, next to Wits University, you are basically close to a lot of sightseeings.''
