When you are a creative good energy is everything. An environment that inspires you is everything.

Let me introduce you to Cape Towns All star hotel and backpackers – Once In Cape Town.

Eat. Sleep. Explore.
Once In Cape Town Welcome Pack
This is a home for budget travellers. After checking and walking around my home for the next 3 days, I just wanted to get on my social media accounts to tell everyone about this amazing place I would be staying in.

Once in Cape Town reminded me why I love doing what I do and why I do what I love. Also, my true purpose in Cape Town and my mission to promote budget African travel and lifestyle.

There is a fun filled timetable with all the activities that aims to get everyone involved and discovering Cape Town. Also these activities promote socializing.

Activity timetable
On Friday night we had a dress up braai party with over 30 backpackers making an appearance, sharing food and drinks. Everyone was from a different corner of the world, spoke a different language with a different cultural background, but around that dinner table we were all family. A family of travellers sharing a meal and travel stories.

What I got from Once In Cape Town:
·         This place revived my love for knitting. They have a knitting corner called the “Stitch and Bitch”. Whatever you knit gets sewn together and a blankie is made to donate to charity. I did not read a single book while at Once I Cape Town because I was too busy “stitching and bitching”.
·         Reignited my love for my work.
·         Reminded me of my greatness. The true power I possess within.
·         Introduced to a whole new world of travelers.
