“Best stuff ”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on March 07, 2020

AC hostel with really nice staff. What else you need? Ouch, beds of course. You can sleep on them. And good drinks of course. You can get drunk and forget brutal world or forget what you did last...

“Super friendly!”

Great little basic hostel, staff were super friendly and came with us to the bars! Cheap buckets, good range of alcohol and good tunes in the evening. Really close to the beach but not too noisy...


Wild & Wandering is located on the main road in Haad Rin between the Haad Rin Pier and the Full Moon Beach.

From the pier, walk straight down the road 2 blocks, past 2 left turns. Look for the pink bar on the left, before Family Mart and across from Bamboo Tattoo hostel.

From the beach, take the road inland next to Cactus Bar up 2 blocks, past 2 7-11s. Follow where the road zigzags to the left past food stalls, past Paprika, then we are in the right side, just past Family Mart.

If you're coming from Thongsala, or coming by taxi, tell the driver keywords like PINK BAR, near Paprika restaurant, near NEW Family Mart (there is another at the edge of town).
