A great place to stay! Rooms were very spacious and clean. Bathroom was really small! Towels provided and free wi-fi. Staff were very friendly. Great atmosphere around the fire! A good place to share stories with other travellers!

I was planning this weekend for a long time, there were 13 of us. The only reason I was interested in tube n axe to begin with was because of the water tubing. I was worried about everything else as I had seen it was rated as #8 in storms river. Shocked by that, and that we had already booked,... More

I stayed there on two separate occasions and had amazing experiences both times! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location was perfect! The rooms were very clean and the communal fire pit/braai area, where you could chat with other guests, was definitely the best part!

This place was awesome! We stayed two nights, and ended up coming back for another night because we had so much fun. The staff is really friendly and helpful, the food is good, and the drinks are plentiful. They have a huge outdoor fireplace and the entire hostel has a warm, funky atmosphere. There are a lot of fun activities... More

I stayed at Tube n' Axe the night before beginning the Otter Trail in Tsitsikamma. Tube n' Axe had a lively atmosphere, hot showers, nice grounds, a good dinner, and 1 free shuttle for Baz Bus riders. That's all I needed. It was loud, however, and this was even in the off-season. Great fire pit area as well. If you... More
