A great backpackers run by fantastic people


What an amazing place, beautiful views, lovely people, very social chilled vibe. I booked 2 nights and stayed 4!


This hostel is in a very beautiful setting and we had a great stay! The staff are all really friendly and helpful and add to the chilled out vibe of this place. There are lots of things to do near by or you can just enjoy the various walks and facilities at the hostel. They even had some live music on the outside decking on one night which was great!


Very special and eco friendly. Beautiful wooden deck. Free WiFi and a fire in the evenings. They offer very nice and cheap dinner and breakfast. Nice walk to a waterfall about 20 minutes away.


Magical place


This backpackers certainly has its very own style and atmosphere (the animals are a big plus) and the facilities are nice, but if you don't have a car you are kind of stuck there. Also, staff was sometimes quite grumpy and disorganised.

Hi Michaela, Thank you for your honest review. We did have a period recently when we had a group of volunteers who weren't fully embodying the Wild Spirit passion and vibe. We are sorry that this was your experience and we hope you visit us again in the future for a better time! Best wishes from Wild Spirit, Heleen
