I thought that this place had a great vibe. We had a group of five and had stayed in the family room which was nice and had a clean bathroom. We arrived late at night and the staff was very accommodating even in the late hour. We had a few beers by the fire and enjoyed the surrounding area. In... More

What I enjoyed the most about my stay here was the tempo, it ranged from ubber chilled to party mode in full swing. The panoramic views and rolling hills are majestic- with cows and ducks, cats and Horses it has a feel to it that is comfy and encourages you to settle in. This is definitely a place you need...

Initially we were a bit disappointed as the lady working said, as campers breakfast was not included. However the actual manager of the place corrected this the following morning so smiles all round again. The camp ground was amazing with the ocean in the back drop. The shower was hot and the self catering lounge/kitchen was nice. Breakfast was help... More

Absolutely beautiful view from the mountain top. Accommodation, hygiene and overall service / friendliness of staff can only be rated as poor. Everything felt dirty and not cared for, every morning we found empty liquor bottles by the staff quarters and the whole place smelled like weed. In winter it gets terrible cold and windy too, of course there's no... More

The position ist wonderful when you love nature and amazind views in the morning. The huts are very easy, Windows and doors has holes, so the cold air come whole the time in the hut. The toilet is not that new and the shower horrible. All in one, nice place for people who don't need any comfort and love nature.... More

The view from this backpackers is absolutely breathtaking; between the ocean, the nearby hills/mountains and the nature reserve i could've easily spend my entire stay just watching around - especially sunrise and sunset are amazing. My room and the shared bathroom were clean, tidy and very functional. The staff is friendly and helpfull and is more then willing to include... More

I unexpectedly found myself in the Wilderness during my travels over the Easter peak season, unable to get a bus ticket further for 5 days. The WildFarm shuttle came and picked myself and some other traveling friends and I awoke to the most beautiful ocean view I could have imagined. My room was clean & comfortable and the staff amongst... More

My sister and I booked to stay four nights at Wildfarm and after the first we didn't go back but rather went to another backpackers in the town. Upon arrival, there was no-one there to greet us and no-one seemed to know what was going on. They were all far too excited about the trance party they were hosting that... More

The staff is amazing and very friendly. The views are so good you could sit and watch the ocean for days. Everyone that visits leaves with a smile and can't wait to come again. If you travelling the garden route be sure to stay a night or five you will not be disappointed.

The first time I went to this backapckers I threw my boyfriends 30th birthday party. The staff was so accommodating and thrilled to be apart of a celebration. Everyone had an amazing time and started a trend of us going there at least once a month. It's our home away from home, with an amazing view, incredible people, and so... More
