I just want to take the opportunity to say thank you to the wonderful ladies at Once in Cape Town , for backpacker accommodation they really went above what is expected. Check-in was seamless and fast. Covid screening was done upon arrival and when I got to the room it was really more then what I was expecting to be honest. As I did not want to be around to many people the ladies at the reception gave me the option to sit in the court yard which has a nice cozy fireplace and nice common area. Michaela and Jeanine was so helpful cause I had a lot of questions. Nice surrounding area with a cozy restaurant attached to the place. All in all I was very satisfied and would definitely return.

We stayed at Once in Cape Town for 1 night, we were warmly welcomed by Michaela and Jeanine. Check in was easy and fast, the rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable. I loved the vibe and that fact that we were able to sit in the back by the fire. Once is centrally located and within walking distance from restaurants if you feel like going out for something to eat. I would highly recommend Once to anyone looking for accommodation in the city :)

After everything that's going on This was just a night me and my Husband needed. Well prepared on our arrival - the rooms were clean and neat. The ladies Mikayla, Janine and Puleng was so helpful and friendly. Both me and my husband felt like we were at home. The vibe and everything that comes with it was just worth it.

Modern, stylish rooms, comfy beds, free wifi and a great location made this an excellent 3-night stay for me. Plenty of restaurants and coffee shops all round and a short walk down to Cape Town's busy Long Street.
