This is how you do a backpacker hostel right. Obsessively clean, strong wi-fi, powerful air con, great atmosphere, good location off the main road so you can have some quiet but still close to the life of the party. This is one of those rare places where both locals and travelers hang out. The food is wonderful. I spent over... More

We visited this place purely because of the good trip advisor reviews, but regret going. The only good thing about Bodega is the prices. It took about 45 minutes for our order to arrive, and when it did, we were very disappointed. We had the noodle dish which was bland, with pork that was really dry. The bun on our... More

We also returned and stayed in the mixed 8 bed dorm, which had two showers, two toilets and large sink area with a large mirror. Also really spacious and clean... More

Bodega absolutely made my entire trip to Phuket. The hostel is managed by a highly professional yet super fun dude named Dain and is staffed with both locals and foreigners. Located in the heart of Patong, Bodega is a five-minute walk from the beach, and seconds from the famed Bangla Road. It is surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants,... More

The next day I was looking for places to eat and saw someone recommend Bodega for the food. We were not disappointed. Best Beef Pad See Ew i've ever had. The masaman beef... More

I recommend this hostel, 'cause has many good things. The position, in Patong, is perfect, really close to all facilities (seven eleven, family mart, pharmacies, malls ecc.) and close to bangla road, the center of the nightlife in patong and close to patong beach (5-10 mins walking). The staff is super, really friendly and helpful, the organise day trips all... More

Often, I go by the attitude that the best places to eat are usually the most crowded. Therefore, I was a little skeptical going into Bodega, as it's usually fairly empty. Don't let that scare you though, because the food is amazing and cheap by Patong's standards. Their smoothies (to me) are the best thing they make, I 100% recommend... More
