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

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.

This hostel is a good adventure-base to visit Storms River and its surroundings. There's a shuttle service to the Bungee jump, to the tubes, etc. The personnel is friendly and the rooms are quite spacious. There's a lot of cooking equipment in the kitchen, so a longer stay is possible. There's room for a campfire outside and the grounds are... More

Very friendly little place. Rooms very comfortable and the garden great for relaxing in. There is the opportunity to go river tubing or mountain biking. Activities not too expensive, a lot of people I spoke to enjoyed mountain biking.

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!
