We camped at the Tube n Axe backpackers for 2 nights in December and it was so much fun. The place is well equipped for all your needs in terms of the kitchen, bathroom and shower facilities. The pool is a bonus and the hammocks so inviting. The bonfire was great and allowed the space to make lots of friends...

Great backpackers - lovely staff (although night staff were way more friendly and approachable than day staff) amazing dogs! Really great owner full of advice and info. Great facilities in beautiful surroundings - photos on the website don't do it justice!

The whole place has an amazing vibe - not sure if because of the bonfire that they make every night, the swimming pool area with hammocks, the dogs, the children playing around, the lovely staff and owners or the trees around the area. My room was super clean, the linen is very very good, the communal kitchen where I was...

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....
