It has been a great experience in many ways, I recommend it to anyone who really seeks to connect with people and stay in a calm place and being in touch with nature.
Mun are very welcoming person and have a lot of funny stories to tell also showing the Island and all the beautiful places to go and the best places to eat, we had barbecue with the guests and the staff, and every night everyone hang out at the kawah Padi bar to talk and have some cocktails and beers, it was an incredible experience in Kawah Padi, it was a really great time.

I will definitely be back.

It is what it says: a social experience group right in the center of the craziest party island in the world. You should come here expecting daily parties, a lot of night-outs and loads of fun
The work is very unstructured because of the nature of the place: once a month during the full moon week you have crazy crowds while other weeks are pretty mellow in comparison. This is a very unique experience which you'd probably not get anywhere else.
The acco is basic but sufficient. Loren is absolutely amazing!
Also, you not get complementary breakfast, so keep that in mind while budgeting

The 3 weeks that I have been in Wild & Wandering have been amazing! BB and Paduka are great people, always willing to help you. I had so much fun with all the volunteers and we had a lot of free time (after full moon) to visit all the island :)

The experience was super fan, I feel at home since the first second.
It's one off that messy but good places.
Rafa, Sofia and Vivi are the best!!
In full moon, we organize clean and prepare the rooms and after that it's more about be with the Gest and make them fell at home too.
I definitely recommend the experience.
If you are looking for a fancy place keep looking.

So Wild And Wandering is one those places the Koh Phangans Haad Rind to what it is, where a quirky chill vibe that in a moment can turn into a full blown neon colored party mayhem. I came first off to design a wall and got pretty much to what I wanted which was great. The other volunteers and staff were welcoming I soon felt just at home. The hostel accommodation is basic, plywood walls and all, but you know that checkin in to hostel so ride with it. Coming up for the full moon you might get to help out with some other stuff but be sure to stay around and help out because of the party!
