It might just be that I was staying here in low season, but there is really nothing special about this hostel. Its very small, has minimal facilities and there was hardly anyone around. Its also far from the beach at the back of Patong. The staff were really lovely, but in general the place was very lacking in people and atmosphere.
I had a really good time, and I particularly loved how helpful the staff was in helping me organize all my trips. There were a few mishaps but overall everything was handled well, and my only major complaint was there was some kind of construction going on so it was rather noisy sometimes. It's a really great place though, close to everything, it was just what I wanted
Bodega is the only hostel to stay in while you are in Phuket. Perfect atmosphere, great food, and a great bar menu. The rooms are cleaned daily and to a very high standard, the staff become like a family and can arrange anything you need. Thank you to Bank, who did an excellent job at reception and prepared my smoothies to my dietary needs with no problems, wonderful staff member. Thanks bodega for making my stay in Phuket magical.
Awesome hostel! One of the best I've stayed in. The staff were super friendly and helpful and it was very clean! The cleaning crew came everyday to sweep and make your bed. Great location as well!
Had an amazing time in Bodega! Such a nice place. Great staff and very helpful. They clean everyday. I had to stay one more day which wasnt a problem. I Definitly recommend this one!
Overall fantastic hostel. The staff were very informative and the location was extremely convenient (5 min from Patong Beach and Bangla Road)
Nice staff and good location. You can plan trip to islands around from there.
Most amazing staff ever! Perfect location, just 5min walk from the Patong beach and night life. Patong is pricey, but you can eat delicious food in the hostel, prices are reasonable. They have many options for day tours as well. Only thing that needs to be fixed is the shelf above the bed. It was useless and almost fell off the wall. Anyway, if you're heading to Phuket stay in Bodega!
Lovely hostel awesome people!
Cool place to stay, the are friendly... Specially Bee! She's so nice :) Good food, good rooms, ac all day. Cheap tours and excellent facilities. I had a great time and met so cool people! :)
I stayed in the 8 bed dorms and it was really comfortable with a shelf and a plug next to every bed including top bunks. My current hostel doesn't have that and it is a huge pain. The staff was really nice and helped me with all my bags (I have a lot of heavy bags and was staying on top floor) it was a bit hot but that is to be expected. Asked to turn AC on early and they did. About a 5 minute walk from the beach.😊
About 10 minutes' walk to Patong Beach. It's a quiet location, I prefer this. Patong is too crazy and noisy. I booked a four mixed room which has an independent bathroom. All is good but mattress is too soft. When I went to reception. The girl is so hot. Perhaps D cup, I just cannot help to imagine.
Great staff! Really helpful. The bar makes the place great to meet people!!!
Great hostel to visit if travelling alone, but it isnt signed well and I had to ask at the nearby shop to find it. Otherwise I had a couple of fantastic nights there, food was tasty and the staff booked me a discount trip ro Ko Phi Phi. Definitely would visit again.
Nice staff, close the main "attractions" of Patong while remaining very quiet. The room was clean with good facilities.
The staff is great, helpful and friendly. But the building is old and getting pretty run down. This was surprising given such high ratings from other travelers. The second floor smells of septic. At least on the dorm side. They have private rooms on the other side of the road which I didn't see.
Staff st bodega are amazing! Very friendly and knowledgeable and will go out of their way to help you have a good time!

Great hostel. We stayed in a private room and it had everything we needed. The staff were super nice, and can book transportation etc for you. The location is right in the heart of Patong, close to all the restaurants and bars. The have a nice little restaurant too.
The staff was excellent, especially the night time staff at the bar. Fantastic people -- extremely friendly and helpful!

This is a cool little spot. Everyone there was pretty social. The night staff here is really amazing. Boa (?) is truly amazing and will help you book any yours or figure anything out for you even if it means 15 phone calls.
