Kind easy going staff. Absolutely stunning views. Live music once in a while. The perfect balance between stimulating conversations with people from all over the world, and quiet peaceful nature. Will definitely be returning!

I booked all of our accommodation way in advance to coincide with our Otter Trail hike. Of all the places I booked, this place was the only one with this level of shocking service. I should have known when they did not respond to any of my confirmation emails and then mumbled a tentative,"Yeees .. you are booked," when I...

Hi Crystal Hope you are well there. We are really sorry that you had such a negative experience here at the wild farm. We have just recently in December gone onto the online booking system that we are using now. All of us and the volunteer staff are still learning how it works. We are sorry for the inconvenience of...

Ever shown up to high school house party a little late? That one girl who was kinda friends with your younger sister is stumbling around telling people how "free and alive" she feels. Meanwhile, three guys in the corner, most of which are pushing 18, are taking shots and chanting. Now imagine all those party-goers decide in a drunken stupor...

My stay at The Wild Farm was unforgettable. The Wild Farm Backpackers is definitely a place to go. With world class views of the ocean in the backdrop of the mountains, a relaxed atmosphere and a staff very welcoming and attentive. Everyone seems to be having a good time here and I enjoyed it very much! The management was also...

We have been here before and it is just incredibly beautiful. Cooking facilities are good, but more bathrooms are really needed with 800ppl camping there for new years.Camping prices were the highest we paid on our whole trip. Ask for a kiddies discount if you travel with kids. I have to say,that our last stay was better and I don't...

I stayed at The Wild Farm for a second time in December over NYE. The first time I stayed in a family room (well equipped, but the gas smell in the bathroom was overwhelming and made it unpleasant to be in the room) and this time we camped. The receptionist didn't know we had paid a deposit and kind of...

Lovely views of the ocean and the lagoon. Facilities were clean. Staff were decent. Good value for money for basic accommodation. Free coffee and tea :) That said, it was a bit of a mission to actually get to the location. It involved narrow and gravel roads with a steep incline. Our car (heavily loaded Polo) struggled to get up...

Wow. The view. When we first arrived to Wild Farm we were not only welcomed by the kind staff, but the view was absolutely incredible. We had such a fabulous time at the farm that it was even hard to leave. The PIZZA was delicious! Oh and free breakfast was a plus. Along with the other staff meals at the...

What used to be a nice place is now run by young volunteers from all over the world (free labour) who don't know what's going on and seem to have no leadership. They sit on their computers and Iphones the whole day and try to assist but seem pretty clueless....some even quite unfriendly or at least totally unsuitable for the...
