    Extraordinary staff, awesome breakfast, AC. Sad that I only stayed for a night. If you‘re in Santa Catalina and able to book early, this is the place to go!

    Solid hostel. Not really anything to fault at all apart from wish it was closer to the surf! One of the better hostels I've stayed in for sure. Outstanding pancakes included.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Bodhi. Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast of pancakes and fruit was delicious, the kitchen was always clean and the snorkeling tour you can book through the hostel was so much fun and well worth the money. Would stay here again!

    Great hostel, good kitchen and always super clean. The people working there are also so nice and helpful! One thing would be that there are no sockets in the bedroom (maybe one hidden somewhere but I couldn’t find it).

    Really chill and nice hostel to discover Santa Catalina. Free breakfast is really good and AC in dorm is a plus. $2 amazing smoothies at the fruit shop next door.

    Great hostel! Really friendly staff and an amazing breakfast. The rooms have an AC, which is very nice and compensates the fact that the hostel doesn’t have a pool in the hot town of Santa Catalina. Would definitely recomendo going here!

    Really enjoyed my stay at Bodhi. It’s a small hostel so you get familiar with the people and staff - very nice and friendly staff. Delicious pancakes, fruits and coffee for breakfast. Lockers are provided. The 5 peoples dorm is pretty small, so if you can stay in the 6 peoples dorm, it’s a lot nicer ;) recommendation for the owner: maybe put some better lights in the rooms/bathrooms, you can’t see much, especially not in the 5peoples dorm.

    I only stayed one night but this night was one of my worst hostel experiences. I got the bed right beneath the ac. During check in I already asked if I could have one of the other free beds but that wasn't possible due to a difficult computer system that couldn't be changed.(Another girl told me she could chose her bed upon arrival.) I asked for a blanket then and was promised one later, twice. Turned out they only have one and that was given to the guy in the other dorm having the same problem.

    Staff is nice and location is good. Not really social and there are only a few solo travellers.

    Second time staying in a bodhi after we stayed in the one in Valle Anton the week before. In Anton there were dead bed bugs on the beds so we moved beds and had no other problems all week. After a night in this Bodhi, I woke up with over 100 bites. The owner essentially said it was my fault despite the issue clearly being with that bed (I’d had no problems before/since) and was pretty rude when I asked for compensation, despite the fact I was visibly upset in front of staff. Would not recommend Bodhi hostels, overpriced and overrated. You won’t meet many people and you won’t be looked after.
