AMAZING place!!”

I recently stayed here with my parents, visiting us from the UK and my 2 teenage girls. There was a booking error with the room I'd booked, but the lady on reception was SO helpful and my parents were upgraded to a luxury tent that was superb! The staff are super friendly and helpful, the food is DELICIOUS (please eat here, don't go anywhere else!!) the fire they light at 6pm in the evening is fantastic to sit around, looking at the night sky.... this is NOT like any back-packers you get in the UK!, its amazing.

Great place as a base for your Tsitsikamma experience. Much more than a backpacker´s!”

We loved the place. We stayed in a "luxury tent". Very nice, clean and cozy, relatively private (surrounded with green) with its own toilet (beware of the waterless saw dust toilet). Very good facilities: pool, sundeck, fire pit area, restaurant and bar. They also organize all types of activities (LOTS of them). We will definitively going back.

Mismanagement and bad service”

We checked in the hotel n discovered that the rooms r really very small not even a big bag can be opened... Also the heater provided was not working replaced after multiple reminders . Also hot water was not in the rooms in the morning with 4 degree temperature.. they told us to shower in common bathroom after booking a luxury room. The staff named Mitch Booked our bungee at 11.00 am but inspite of dropping us first he dropped others at national park hence we got late and missed our slot n wasted 2 hours of our time. Then he was asking for R 95 pp instead of R33 pp which was the shuttle cost for droppig us at the national park. Kitchen cleanliness was ok bit messed up Swimming pool, restaurant area and fire area was good.

Place to be in stormsriver”

We stayed 2 night and spent new years at Tube n Axe. According to what others and the owner told us, usually its quite crowded and you find Backpackers, internationals as well as locals here. You can stay in a room, dorm, tent or camp - the diversity is quite nice. There's a pool, breakfast is included and you cab have dinner or lunch at the restaurant. Food was okay, they offered vegetarian options though i would sat there's still room for more. Staff was friendly but a bit unorganised. Tent was clean, kitchen was not so Well equipped, so make sure to bring your stuff if you want to cook yourself. Anyway great place to be espacially cause they also offer tubing and have a bar :)

אחלה בגפאק, עם אווירה מעולה. הייתי בסופ"ש, אז היה בראיי. צוות נחמד ואדיב, במיוחד שלדון. ישנתי באחת הווילות המרוחקות מהבניין המרכזי (דקה הליכה, לא כזה רחוק). יתרון: אין רעש בכלל גם כשיש פעילות בהוסטל. חיסרון: אין ווייפיי בחדר. החדר גדול ונעים, המיטה מאוד נוחה.
