Considering it's right near the action of Patong Beach, Bodega Hostel maintains a nice and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were all very lovely and helped as much as possible. In the hostel there is interesting information about the truth about the bar girls and the illegal trafficking of animals and i think it's great they alert young tourists to the problem and distinguish themselves from it. Wifi was very erratic.

Loved my stay here. Rooms were spacious, secure, airconditioned, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect and the staff were absolutely amazing! The bar is the perfect place to hangout and meet new people.

Perfect hostel to experience the crazy phuket nightlife. 5 minute walk from bangla Road. Great clean facilities. Good bar in the hostel with a real cheap happy hour. Great staff who get involved with the banter.

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.

Hey there, thank you for taking the time to review. We're sorry to hear that you missed out on what makes Bodega so special! We are an 8 minute walk from the beach, and that's if you are taking your time and getting distracted by all of the awesome things that surround us. We hope you will come back again sometime soon to give Bodega another shot at showing you how awesome we are! Happy travels!!

Good location, close to busy night street but far enough away to be quiet. However, during the day a lot of construction noise out front. Nice cafe downstairs. Staff friendly. Dorm room and bed good, but bathroom had unpleasant smells. Overall, good value.

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.

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.😊
