I camped there and everything was ok, except service. Maybe we were there on the bad day, but guy at the reception was acting strange - everything what I asked him he treated with aggression. And I don't think I was difficult in any way - it was the only place in South Africa I had this kind of awful... More

We were blessed by an awsome experience at tube n axe,the staff and atmosphere. My next visit to the area will be spent there. I would recommend it for anyone in the area that is passing through. A place of piece and a pocket of revival!

We booked well in advance as we were a party of five (from Europe) roadtripping across SA. The booking process, via email, was exhausting having to speak to a different person each time and receiving very few replies. I sent an email confirming our arrival several days before staying, to which I received no reply. All other backpackers we stayed... More

My son and i stayed in T&A for two nights over the December period. We were doing the canopy tours so we just needed a place to lay our heads. The rooms here are very neat, and the outlay is great. However, the frontline desk is VERY unfriendly and no one takes the time to inform you of anything upon... More

Title says it all. Nice friendly bar, decent beer good wifi. Had dinner there one night and the burger was fine! Be sure to visit it if you are in Storms River. Reviews have to be at least 200 characters so this makes up the text!

Loved this place, clean and comfortable with great food. The staff are really friendly and will recommend local activities should you want to go bungying (highest in the world..216m!), tubing or hiking in Tsitsikamma National Park. They have an amazing fire pit which they light up every evening providing a perfect place to meet people, have a laugh and share... More

It is a very good backpackers lodge. It is a quit area and you can do all lot around the hostel. Dinner is good, breakfast is good and the people who worked there are very nice. The view is also beautifull.

Professionally managed; staff friendly and helpful. Premises clean, well-tended. Dorms, clean and well maintained. A great vibe, secure and up-beat. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. Fresh flowers everyday in the public areas ... not many places offer that touch.
