Lovely lovely staff and great atmosphere. Tucked away from the craziness of the main road. Stayed for three nights and was a great experience. Food in the hostel was really nice especially the breakfast! Would recommend booking the James Bond tour through the hostel as it's cheaper.

Great location and price. We stayed in an 8 person dormroom which also had two shared bathrooms. The beds were comfortable. Two bathrooms was more than adequate for the rooms, however a sewage smell would waft in from the pipes. My only complaint would be that although the room had an air conditioner it didn't work very well. A fan...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in a private room in Bodega Hostel and were very pleased. The private rooms are in another building on the other side of the street. The room is decent, with shower, a little balcony on which smoking is allowed and a big bed. We could directly book an island hop boat tour from...

We stayed in Bodega for 3 nights. The location is very good. It's just a 5 minute walk from the Bang La Road and the Patong beach, but it's still quite. So don't be afraid, you will have a good sleep in here. ;-) there is everything you need in the room and you get bottles of water for free....

PERFECT location - right next to the party Bangla Rd, but away from the noise. The bar was always poppin, met some cool people there. Wifi is only in the bar and couch area unfortunately, hence the 3 stars - but besides that, the staff was really nice, the rooms were clean, they provided towels. I would recommend staying here...

Hey thanks for your review! While we do have 2 different providers for internet in the hopes that the connection in all rooms will always be strong, island life proves that's not always the case. However we are glad you enjoyed your time here at Bodega - we enjoyed having you! Happy Travels!

We stayed in the private room section across the road and the room was good. Nothing special, but everything we needed was there. The charm of this place lies in the staff and the communal and bar areas. We met a lot of great people at the bar on our first night here and ended up travelling onward with them....

This hostel is in a perfect location in Patong, close enough to Bangla road to party but not to close so you can still sleep without the noise of that crazy street. The food is great and the staff is very nice. They keep everything nice and clean and a bed in a dorm is still cheep. Overall it's one...

We spent 2 nights at Bodega and enjoyed it a lot. We stayed in a private double room with ensuite. It was quite clean with good air conditioning too. The staff were lovely and gave us lots of advice.

i loved the location. its almost walking distance from patong beach. and right near bangla road. bangla road has the best nightlife in Phuket. its rocking till 6 am. hostel has decent dorms, lockers, washroom, common room. it also has a decent bar on the ground floor. Price is justified. Overall its a good catch !!

Bodega is a really hip little place, very close to all the action in Patong. But our room smelled so bad during our stay that unfortunally it is all I will remember. It smelled like something had died and never left. I was able to bare it for 3 nights, but wish we had just moved on. Our room was...
