A couple friends and myself went and stayed at this hostel in may of 2012. It was fantastic. Great social atmosphere, the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic, the drinks were great, the rooms were well looked after and the location wasn't too far from the absolute craziest bar street I have ever seen. Hands down... More

Centrally located in the heart of Patong, this charming hostel is perfect for backpackers. The owners take great care of guests, the food/cocktails are great, rooms are clean, price is right. Look no further than Bodega!

Spent a weekend here and had a great time. It's located right in the main tourist part of Patong beach and about a 20 minute tuk tuk ride to some of the quieter beaches in the south. The staff is incredibly friendly and does a good job of making your stay as enjoyable as possible. There are good lounge areas... More

Reading the reviews on this you would think this is the best hostel in the world but I feel people are overrating it a bit. It was a good hostel with a nice bar and friendly staff but that is it. Nothing unique about it that makes it "excellent". The rooms are big but the shower is very weak and... More

Easily one of the best stays in this highly rated hostel. Staff did their job great and efficient. They see themselves as a problem solver to help you out in all possible ways (e.g. when some drunk guests talked too loud at midnight). You can tell that the management of this hostel is dedicated and responsive to their guests because... More

My time spent in Phuket was full of bad luck, but when I left I didn't remember any of it because of the staff here. Got in an accident on a motorbike and Ra stitched me up like my own personal doctor. Kristin helped me when my flight and hostel reservations got messed up, and she really took the time... More

The beds are bad, aircon too soft, staff not helpful and not nice, not good common areas. Very expensive water! And had the worst plate of fruit in all Thailand. Only good location if interested in pattong's bangla road.

Me and my friend both found this hostel on hostelworld.com. Rated as number one and with all the positive reviews we read, we were super excited to book it. It definitely didn't disappoint. The whole check-in process was easy and quick, and we got up to our room and winded down in no time. We got the private rooms which... More
