    I was expecting a s***** place because of the low rating, so I was very surprised when I got here. I've been travelling for 8 months so far, stayed in probably 50 different places. This is the kind of place look for as a traveller. It was easy to meet people, the staff are travellers themselves and will no try to rip you off. The beer is cheap. A lot of the low ratings comes from simply spoiled people that pay a lot for the full moon and feel entitled.

    Great party hotel right in teh middle of Haad Rin. They have a few hostels and bars around town, so talk to staff and there's always somethign going on! Beds are basic but soft. There's a cute pink bar, and they took me down teh street to their new karaoke bar at their beach hotel which was busy and fun! Good strong drinks too! I'm coming back again for fuul moon!

    This hotel is no Shangri-La, but honestly I couldn’t imagine a better place to crash for Full Moon Party. The staff are so kind and so fun. The pre-party atmosphere was incredible. Even the night after Full Moon with booze and karaoke was fun! Kudos to the staff for working their butts off during an extremely busy Full Moon Party this month. I appreciate you all and hope to return!!

    Wild & Wandering is a true backpacker hostel. You don't visit here expecting the St. Regis, and that's ok. You come here for the absolutely fantastic people and community. It's like having an instant new group of good friends on the other side of the world — and that's absolutely priceless.

    Great hostel if you plan on going to the full moon party. It is literally right next to it. The staff is fun and there is a bar there which makes it fun to pre for the full moon. However, like all other places in Haad Rin, it is quite expensive during the full moon party. So if you are not in Koh Phangan for that reason, I would stay in a different part of the island.

    We booked for private room, when we arrived and showed us the the room it wasnt private.its just a dorm with separated beds. We upgraded for a true private room and paid around 200 baht for the night, ACs wasnt working so they compensated us with a better room. Was good, but rooms should be cleaner ofcourse and repairs should be made. HOWEVER, there were two persons who made us like this place with all of the problems. BIBI and the Argentina guy. Andro maybe. They are the best👍🏻

    Pros: Friendly staff as Bebe, Chris and Leo. Perfect location. Good hub for pre-gaming before a party. Cons: Finding that they gave your bed to someone else. Wifi not working. No lockers in the same facility that they put us to stay in. Bathroom not clean with a very bad smell and no paper most of the time. 2 showers and 1 bathroom shared by 18 people at least. Not worth the money paid as the services are not as advertised.

    Im going to be straight with you all Every review on here that is positive is lying to you, the hostel offer a free drink to anyone that writes them a positive review, which is good right? Until you realise that the alcohol is sh*t and the facilities aren’t better Bed was made from polyester no security locker 2plug sockets for 10 people one toilet and 2 showers for 20 people no lock on the door to stop others coming in Super disgustingly dirty everywhere Worst hostel ever.

    A 30$ a night hostel with no air conditioning on the first floor with sliding glass doors that did not lock which were located next to an open street bar that partied with anyone who walked up from the street. Anybody could walk into the hostel and steal if they wanted as there was no identification for hostel guests and no lockers large enough to hold a bag. The bathrooms were in horrible conditions. We decided not to sleep the entire night and take the first boat in the morning off the island.
