About ONCE in Cape Town

We really have it all: Great location, great vibes, safety and great value for money.

At our wonderful place to stay, guests can relax and cook in the self-catering kitchen, outdoor fire-pit and meditation garden. We have 3 in-house restaurants - the burger joint, Hudsons; an authentic Italian Pizzeria called Mitico and cafe deli: Yours Truly - our in-house cafe where breakfast is served. The deli transforms into a hip bar for day-time merriment, and is open until 11pm. Great place for our guests and the locals!

For your safety, our reception and concierge are open 24 hours. Our trained, friendly staff can help you organise your trip - book a surf lesson, a wine tasting trip, a visit to Cape Point, sky diving, shark cage diving and much more! We also invite you to join daily free activities like hiking Lions Head or watching the sunset at Signal Hill.

All rooms are en-suite with private bathroom (even dorms). The dorm beds are custom-made extra length, with a safety locking box and charging space for your laptop etc. Private rooms have hotel-like privacy along with DSTV.

Location Information

Gardens Cape Town is smack bang in the middle of Cape Town city center. Surrounded by many of the best hang out places of young Capetonians.

There are lots of nice restaurants, sites and activities. Down the Street you'll find the popular Longstreet famous for its bars and clubs, there you can find a bar for every taste, so perfect to party all night long, but far enough from the noise of the city

The EXPLORE section of the hotel is our lively travel area – our staff are most knowledgeable and will help you with any planning – from which festivals to go to, to hopping on the Bazbus (which departs from our front door!) surfing, abseiling off Table Mountain, Garden route trips or going on a wine tour.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 7 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
