        Vivacious place!”

        There is a positive vibe in Once in Joburg with a lot of young tourists. Friendly staff, good breakfast included, modern & comfortable rooms, cafés, bars and restaurants at a very short walking distance, lots of options for activities within the hotel and trips outside, the opportunity to meet other people very easy. Note that if you are looking for a quiet place, this is not it! Neighbouring music goes on till midnight and beyond and it is truly load.

        A fun, welcoming and warm place to stay”

        Once in Joburg hosts the most friendly and welcoming staff one could ask for - always there with a smile to help you wether you have a simple question or you need suggestions for what to do. A very clean and needy place with nice and spacy rooms. The hotel also offers a lot of social events as movie night, charokee or meals. This is definitely the place to stay while visiting Jozi! :-)

        Nice location and property, great staff”

        My second stay here after a hiatus of one year. Things are still good and well-maintained. Staff is excellent and complimentary breakfast at Immigrant is great too. Will call Uber taxis for you, help you with itinerary planning, and locating places of interest in general. Walkable from Johannesburg Park Station. Lots of eating and partying places around and much energy in the air!! I would stay here again when in the area. One suggestion to management: do check-ins as rooms get done, rather than at exactly 14:00.

        Dear Mahendra, Thank you so much for taking the time to rate the services you found at the hotel during your stay with us. We note the comments regarding check-ins, we have a standard check-in time to allow our housekeepers to spend as much time as necessary in cleaning our rooms so our guests receive value for money. It is sometimes difficult to allow guests to check-in prior 14h00 if the hotel was running full occupancy the previous night, we will endeavour to continually improve our services and appreciate positive feedback from guests like you. Kind Regards Dylan & the Once in Joburg Team

        Once is a Must!”

        The Once is an amazing “ploshtel” which has something for every type of traveller. The building is a former hotel so some of the rooms are just what you would expect for a regular hotel. And for “older” travellers like myself who do not want to do the complete hostel experience anymore, the Once is perfect. The double room is lovely with a comfortable bed, excellent bathroom and shower and a room safe to store your valuables. But if you want to go the hostel route, the first floor provides communal cooking facilities which are set up for storing your own food, a comfy hangout area, a movie room and a veranda for smokers. The "phoshtel" also provides recommendations for tours, things to do etc. although they could not help me with using the local bus system. And a real bonus is that the first floor also has an ATM which provides a much more secure setting for getting your cash. But with that said, it is the awesome staff that really makes the Once so unique!

        Weekend in Joburg”

        Staff at the location were great and super helpful! The only slightly negative thing was the noise coming from a restaurant/bar next door in the same plaza. It may be better during the week, but it was quite loud on Friday and Saturday nights, even from the requested quiet room. Otherwise, location was perfect and very accessible for getting around Joburg. Would definitely recommend!
