This is by far the cleanest and safest hostel I've stayed at in SE Asia. The staff are friendly and engaging. Every night there are games to encourage guests to meet one another (hence a great place for solo travellers). The staff genuinely care about their guests. So far in my 8 months of travels, there have been three hostels that make me feel like home whenever I return, and Bodega is definitely one of them. Thanks guys! (Oh and the guy from Seattle makes great iced coffee!) x
I don't usually write reviews for hostels but these guys totally went above and beyond. Not only was the hostel clean with good facilities, the staff also did their best to show the guests a fun time even during slow tourist season (rakia, free dinner, sangria, cocktail nights). I would definitely recommend this hostel to others and come back myself to hang out! Thanks Marko and Nikolai! x
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful (and excellent chefs). Rooftop family dinners every night really helped backpackers meet each other. Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks Ollie, Tom, Richie and Sam for a wonderful experience!
Excellent hostel. Clean, well located, friendly staff. Thanks José and Lizi for a great experience!
Staff were amazing and friendly. Loved that there were two common areas for guests to hang out. Would definitely recommend it to those going to Istanbul.
Not only could you not control the temperature in the shower, the water only lasts for 10 seconds so you must hold down the faucet to get water. You have to pay in order to access WiFi in the room. Cleaning lady chased me around to do dishes although I'd ensured her numerous times I would get to it after I was done my meal. When I asked whether it would be possible to buy a rail card the same day, one reception staff told me to "go find out for myself at the station".
I was supposed to be there for only three days, and ended up extending to a full week. Going back again next week! nuff said?
