They are not compatible but a bit similar.
Here is an ESP8266 board that "looks" like an Arduino...

It lacks some of the I/Os of the Arduino, like there is only A0. And some of the code from the Arduino IDE can run on it, but not all.
Also, there is the 3.3V vs 5V to take into consideration.
But I'd say get a couple and have a play. Depending on what you want to do, there is the Sonoff series of boards too....
