I thought it was amazing hostel. We stayed for 3 nights and had an excellent time in Patong. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, at all hours. They helped with booking some tours (do the Phi-Phi tour if you're only there a couple days). For those who are early raisers, it's noisy at night, from the street. Great place to meet people too. Highly recommend!

We booked for three nights after reading amazing reviews on hostel world and looking at their website. Our stay was amazing. We stayed in a private double room on the third floor. The room was clean and spacious. The beds were relatively soft - compared to other thai beds, and it was very quiet at night. It is only a short walk to Jungceylon, Patong Beach, Bangla road and the local bus stop. Their staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The drinks and food at their cafe are delicious and cheap. We ate breakfast there every morning and drinks at happy hour. Our only problem was that they were fully booked and that we could not stay for longer - definitely book in advance!!

We will hopefully be back at the end of February to stay with them again.

Room Tip: Stairs are steep - if you have problems with stairs booking a lower floor would be best.

Bodega is a very welcoming place. My friends and I arrived late on Dec 31st and the check-in couldn't be smoother. The atmosphere was already pretty high cause it was almost midnight. The staff spoke good english and they accomodated us very quick. For the following 3 nights we spent there, we go to experience the best Massuman Curry in Thailand and also some of the best smoothies. The amount you pay for the food and the service is so little, it's prolly one of the cheapest and best places we were accomodated in Thailand.

Room Tip: The dorms are good if you want to socialize with other travellers and exchange a few tips about your...

Comfortable shared and single rooms, tasty food available at the bar, pretty good social environment, helpful staff.

Security seemed good, with a lock on each room plus lockers inside the rooms.

Whether you actually want to go to Patong is another question: mostly, the only thing I liked was this hostel! Other beach towns on Phuket, or other islands in the area might be worth considering. Patong is pretty commercialized and there are tons and tons of girl bars.

Located close to the Beach and the main Shopping district. I was suppose to be at Bodega for 2 nights but ended staying almost 2 weeks back in October 2009. The rooms are great, the atmosphere was fantastic and the staff... well I wil never forget them! I'll make it back here one day.
