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!

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 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.

Hey Will, thanks for your review! Phuket and Patong in particular is a pretty busy place but we were glad you were able to find us! We do provide directions both in Thai and English in our confirmation emails to help with this, along with our phone number. Glad you enjoyed your time as much as we enjoyed having you! Happy travels!

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.

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.

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.

The place is well located in the center of phuket! Most staff is nice. We had a misunderstanding with the reservation but they were nice to help us and book us in another room. Thanks for being flexible and helpful!! :)

Amazing Hostel! The best I have ever stayed in! I can't say enough about the staff that work there. They were incredibly helpful with anything that I desired. From helping with booking tours to making those incredible smoothies, to general friendliness, they can't be beat! Bank (the guy with afro) was always availble to help with whatever I needed. Ong (congrats on the new baby!) made the best smoothies. Ra (goatee) made sure that all my planning was taken care of efficiently! Bravo!
