Originally booked two nights here because I planned on moving around Phuket. It was such a comfortable atmosphere and the staff was so nice that I decided to book two more nights. Good, cheap food and happy hour specials everyday. Short walk to the beach and more shops, bars, and restaurants than you could visit if you were here for a year. Worth every penny.

Great hostel! Fun and sociable. The owner/manager Dane engages the guest to promote the social environment. The room were very clean and regularly maintained. Even the food at the bar was pretty awesome. I would highly recommend it for the facilities and the location. Anyone thinking of going here will have fun.

Bodega Phuket gets its high ratings from its friendly staff and their interaction with visitors. Is a great place for solo travellers as entertainment and drinking games encourages people to get to know each other. Dain, the co-owner, is super nice takes you out to Bangla Street every night! We stayed in a private double bedroom - bed was big and room was clean. Not a great view but in a prime location. Awesome experience and company.

This hostel is your definition of "average". The primary issue is the lack of big lockers. You have to leave all your stuff out in the open (not really acceptable in the hostel world). They have teeny tiny locker for your most valuable items, but that's it. The rooms smell a bit, but the beds and linen are good. The bar is a good feature and promotes a sufficient social dynamic. The hostel doesn't make much of an effort to put on hostel tours or communal events though.

okay so this isnt the most luxurious hostel youll ever stay in but i honestly cant pick out a single thing to hold against this place.. the staff was AMAZING, super helpful and friendly! they have a restaurant in the hostel which i really got 70% of my meals from - super cheap and delicious! (CLUTCH)! they have great location, 2 min walk from Bangla rd (party central). the hostel had a great atmosphere too-- also my room had TWO bathrooms (only 8 people in room) an added plus! Very clean also!

Outstanding hostel! Facilities and rooms are top-notch, and the staff was there for everything we needed. The location is ideal and a short walk to the beach and Bangla road. Dain was extremely helpful and even made sure I found the right clinic to visit to have some stitches removed from a motorbike accident (classic tourist move, I know). I also stayed in Bodega's hostel in Bangkok, which was also excellent. If either one of these are available for your trip don't think twice- just book it!

Hostel located near the nightlife of phuket. Good atmosphere, pretty social hostel. Close to the beach, but Patong is not very nice ( I ended up taking tours to other beaches). Facilities are ok, the common area / bar is a bit small but it is great for meeting people. Dorms are ok (looked a bit old), with A/C and you have two bathrooms. You have a small locker, and the room is quite big so you can leave your bag in the floor. If you want to enjoy nightlife stay in Patong, otherwise go to Kata

This hostel is PHENOMENAL! The location can't be beat! The staff is awesome, the facilities are clean and comfortable, and the food from the kitchen is delicious. I wish I could've stayed longer, but I will definitely be back!

Bodega is amazing! Such a social place, the owner is absolutely fabulous he helped so much with everything tour wise and booking onwards journeys, even came out to Bangla Road for some drinks. My only complaint was that the room across the street was always dark and a little smelly if I stayed again I'd try to get a private room or a smaller dorm. Atmosphere is 11/10 met an awesome bunch of people! Stay here, you will not regret it!!!

Fantastic hostel! The dorms were very clean and maintained daily with fresh linen/towel daily. The staff were friendly and available 24/7. They were also able to provide the most competitive prices for day trips I wished to book. The hostel is located in the perfect location next to bars, clubs and restaurants. The social environment was great and security was also excellent to dorms/lockers. Every traveller I spoke to enjoyed their time here, highly recommended.

Guy from Seattle was awesome at check-in and a female staff member was helpful in getting us a taxi. However, clogged toilet was never fixed during our stay, and morning staff was rude when we tried to order breakfast before our checkout. Really inconsistent service, and unusable bathroom is unacceptable.

Had an amazing stay. The staff kick ass and the owner is a rock star. Definitely a party hostel but a great way to meet people. If I'm even in Phuket again I'll be staying at Bodega.

It is close to the main things - the beach, market, pubs, and many more. It is really clean and there is housekeepers to change the sheets everyday for private rooms. Highly recommended.

If you're looking to have an excellent time in Phuket then this is the hostel for you!!! Right by the action and the staff (Dane and Bank) are absolutely incredible. I had the most amazing time. The beds are soft and you get a really comfortable duvet (a/c blasting so you're good to go!). Bathroom only shared between 4 or 8 (depending on which room you get) Go here. You won't regret it. Solo travelers: such an easy place to meet people...and even got me a hot new man! Seriously. Love it here!

It's location is great, just a minutes walk to Bangla road and to a shopping centre, therefore it was away from the district so you could get a goodnights rest. The staff were amazing and friendly, they have friendly advice for what do and what to stay away from. Was a great place to stay

Loved the great atmosphere at Bodega! Staff was very friendly and because the hostel is not to big, after 2 nights they know you by name. Dorm was very clean and sheets were changed every day. Good selection of quality food and drinks at the bar, prices are higher than elsewhere in Phuket, but the same goes for every place in Patong. Would recommend!
