As with many others I found Bodega to be the best place to stay. Im at the older end of the backpacking circuit being 60 but my experience was exceptional. Concern and care about what you needed, wanted to do, where to go, comfort, social inclusion...all were brilliant. Bodega was very clean, secure, food was excellent and all staff where... More

Stayed at Bodega for 6 nights in June, and absolutely loved it. My girlfriend and I stayed in a private room with a very large bed and fantastic AC. The room was cleaned thoroughly everyday and the staff were very friendly. At the bar the cocktails were amazing, and for fairly good prices at happy hour, while the food that... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Close to Bagla St and the beach, (5 minute walk) but on a small side street so it's away from the noise. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Have a bar and resturant which made it easy to meet other travelers. The food is great! (The smoothies were amazing!) The rooms were comfortable and had... More

I stayed 2 nights, the first in an 8-person dorm and the second in a private room. Some rooms are located in the building across the street. The hostel has a great vibe and it's really easy to meet someone to take a day trip with. Kirsten (apologies if the spelling is wrong), the Canadian is usually hanging around the... More

I just spent 6 nights here and it was amazing. The staff is the best I have ever met in a hostel. They dealt with any and every question/ problem we had. The rooms are amazing and we probably spent too much time in them. The location is perfect! This is one of the hostels where you can tell that... More
