Thank you for an amazing stay at Tube n axe. The staff were friendly and helpful. Everyone made us feel welcome and totally at home. I would recommend this establishment to anyone. The tubing experience was a great deal of fun.

Lovely chill and neat place. We stayed 3 nights on the camp site. Staff is friendly, dinner is ok, breakfast very good! Nice pool with hammocks! Would definitely go back! We did half day tubing which was fun, due to low water we had to walk quite a bit.

We stayed one night in a private room with ensuite. The communal areas were modern and well-fitted out, with a bar, pool table, swimming pool and bon-fire outside. The music they played was very loud and obnoxious and continued on until around 11pm, making it hard to fall asleep. Why would you be partying that late on a weeknight in...

Booked this place as the national park campsite was full, but was so so surprised to find it was probably the best campsite/hostel/backpackers I have ever been to. So relaxed with swimming pool and hammocks on the side, a fire pit every night where people share stories and a great little bar and restaurant with friendly staff and most of...

Definitely one of the nicest camping spots in the Garden Route. Very neat and clean, good value for money. The fact that you can have a hot shower in peak season is practically a miracle. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and looking for cheaper accommodation.

We stayed in a private room here which was lovely. It was set back from the main hostel at the end of the garden in a little chalet with 3 other private rooms, it's own living area and fully equipped kitchen. Absolutely perfect for relaxing on the porch in peace after a morning tubing or walking in the national park....

The building where the bar is looks very nice. They also have a big place for making fires and drinking a beer. So far so good until we were taken to our private room with shared toilet/bathroom. The common area at the 4 private rooms smelled like dogs, the room was very small and the plaster from the ceiling had...

We loved the location and the outside fire and pool. The tall slim brunette lady was extremely helpful and seemed to have a hard time from other members of staff. There is however massive room for improvement. For the price of the room you'd expect free coffee at a minimum (which SA price at 20R) and a free or at...

Normally I don't use backpackers. I choose this one because it's near from the Tsitsikamma National Park, and the place surprised me positively. It's very beatiful, clean, organized. Besides, they have several tours options and good food ...
