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 :)

It was my first experiences with Worldpackers and really take me all my words! First of all is such amazing to be volunteer in a hostel. You can meet a lot of people everyday and you get so fan! I been there painting a wall, and it was amazing because they trust you and you can paint wherever you want because they want differents artist and expressions. But not only I get so fun with the coustomers and with the painting, we make a little family in just 1 week. I really have to stay only one week and at the end I stay 17 days! Amazing atmosphere, beautiful people, contact with local people!!

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.
