We randomly turned down a dead end on our stop in Patong and ended up right in front of Bodega so I feel like it was serendipitous that we ended up here. Dain and the rest of the staff are amazing and it is an awesome place to stay to meet people traveling. I thought it was great that he...

Just returned from one of the most fantastic holidays I have ever had, made so much better by staying at Bodega in Phuket. Dain, the manager, and his staff go out of their way to make you feel a part of the family, even though a hostel in Thailand is always going to be transitory by nature. I could not...

Bodega is a hostel in patong beach in Phuket Thailand. The private rooms are at a great price of 1000 baht. Extremely great value for money. Rooms are clean. People are mostly foreigners and are friendly. Bodega in itself has all the right characteristics of a winner hostel, but patong beach not so much.

Bodega is simply one of the best backpack hostels I have ever been to. The staff is friendly, nice and the atmosphere is also very good. It is situated right in the heart of patong with only 5 min walk to the famous (or rather infamous) Bangala Walking Street and Patong Beach. The rooms are dormatory kind beds. I chose...

For young travelers. Lots of things to do in the area. Easy to meet new faces. Took a cooking class across the street that the staff recommended - AMAZING cooking school. Patong beach has a lot of disturbing prostitution at night. Very tourist-y area. Learned that ping-pong shows do not mean two people are having a ping-pong match on a...

I booked this hostel purely based on the reviews of it having a great atmosphere and being a great party and that was the only thing lacking! I couldn't fault the rooms, the hostel is on the expensive side but rooms are spacious, clean, plenty of bathrooms, wifi in rooms, air conditioning, clean, comfy beds literally cannot complain. The location...

I stayed in a private room and had a great experience. The room was huge (and so clean!) and had a lockbox, mini fridge, tv, AC, a fan, and ensuite bathroom. Felt more like a hotel than a hostel! I did have some problems with the ensuite bathroom; it locked from the outside and inside, to ensure privacy for whoever...

I had a great stay here! It was the owner (I think his name was Dain)'s birthday, so he took us out and bought drinks for everyone which of course turned out to be a great way to experience Phuket! Bonus points for having food available. They really helped me out here by organizing a transfer and selling me a...
