Once in Joburg

Once in Joburg is an all-star hotel where you can tailor make your own experience. We offer accommodation that straddles the line between a three-star boutique hotel and a vibrant backpackers hostel.

About Our Hostel

Centrally located in the bustling Braamfontein precinct, it offers young at heart travellers a safe place from which to SLEEP, EAT and EXPLORE the city of Johannesburg. The Braamfontein precinct is a creative hub where you’ll stumble across restaurants, some of the trendiest fashion boutiques between modern co-working spaces, outdoor food markets and nightlife hot spots that showcase local South African talent. The reception and concierge are open 24 hours, and our staff are city ambassadors who share their passion for Johannesburg. You can book all your transfers to Kruger, Bazbus tickets and local day trips from here! We would also love to share our knowledge about local happenings, events and much more in the surrounding area. We also regularly host in-house events for locals and travellers alike and take people to all the most popular music festivals around the country. Within walking distance of Once in Joburg, you’ll find coffee roasters and coffee shops, live music venues, free walking tours, the red city bus stop and much more.
