This place is a really beautiful and reasonably priced hostal. I had a great time staying here and would stay here again, but I must note that there was no hot water and the credit card machine continually failed to work. Therefore, we were forced to go into town and withdraw money at an ATM. The problem with the card reader seemed to have to do with their wi-fi connection, which is not good.

Steer clear of this facility if you're NOT WHITE. These guys have a subtle way of making you feel unwelcome. Way too little ablution facilities. Great scenery, though!

Some rooms say 'family'. In my opinion there is nothing 'family' about what goes on there over weekend nights. It was unbearably loud with the party going on in the central area, so much so we left to try get some sleep at another wilderness hotel. Also, you need 4x4 capabilities if it rains persistently. I understand it's a backpackers and can get rowdy, but dont as it as 'family' then.

The worst bed I have ever experienced in my life. It was so sprung it was it's own mountain range. We couldn't take it and by 4am we packed up and left, forgoing the breakfast and even our key deposit. R880 gets you a "log cabin" which is completed in concrete, a piece of which fell off the wall and hit my wife in the head in the middle of the night. There's a communal bathroom which you have to share with other cabins and dormitories. It also took them 20 minutes to find our booking, even though there are only two log cabins. It would have been hilarious if we'd had more sleep. There's a great sunset view from the bar, I'd recommend going for a beer, just don't spend the night.

We enjoyed Wild Farm for a day or two, but the inssecent blasting of Trance music proved a bit much after a while. I also got devoured by mosquitoes. Despite that, it has an incredible view and seems to be well run.

review by Christie Marx

"Breathtaking view "

This magestic location is definitely the place to stay when in the wilderness. The view is absolutely incredible, overlooking the calm seas while being surrounded by the wonderful sounds of nature. The staff were very accommodating and hospitable. Thanks for the amazing experience.

We stayed there for two nights. The first one, we were the only people with the staff and benefited from a very calm environment. The second one, a (very) large group joined and we had a great time partying - the owners organize music venues a couple of time a year. I really appreciate that they notified us before we stayed/paid of the potential disturbances. The view from the place is really awesome and Wilderness is a cute town.Only rub for me is that a majority of the staff - running the place - we've met during our stay was French people volunteering. Even though it was a pleasure to speak in my language, I don't approve this way of operating.
