Its a feel like home hostel. The dorm rooms are clean and comfortable, but what made it great are the friendly people and they have small bar at the lobby which is very relaxing. The location is also great within walking distance to all great spot around Patong beach.

Bodega is a super cute hostel located near Bangla Road where all of the action is. The people are friendly and the rooms are comfortable, secure, and clean. Air conditioning was good enough when broken, we didn't realise, and then amazing once it was fixed. The dorm rooms have two bathrooms which is great, and pretty rare! The food here is nice but don't order if you've got places to be as it is quite slow and does not come out at the same time. On a side note - the booth selling tickets for shows etc at the end of this street, about 100m from Bodega, is fantastic.

Bodega is a clean, decent hostel at a very good price. Staff is super-friendly and Bodega is one of Patong's best residences for socially getting together with people from all over the world. New friends are made every day. The food is excellent and the prices can't be beat. Drinks are also a great price and the bar is always a hub of activity. There are group rooms, but also individual private rooms; so your choices can be varied. But it is a popular place, so booking in advance is almost essential. Bodega is well located in the heart of Patong city and is only about a 6 or 7 minute walk from the beach. Staff can help you book side trips to other islands and various excursions. It is a great place to call Home Base, to relax, to socialize, to eat and drink, and to plan your various excursions. My son and I spent several nights there. We decided to extend our stay at Bodega but we couldn't, as it was already booked up. So we moved to another hostel down the street. Yet we were still welcomed back during happy hour, they still booked our excursions and taxis and treated us as still part of the family. My thanks to everyone at Bodega from the Canadian who they endearingly called "Papa"

Room Tip: My son and I shared a private room; but nobody had trouble with the group rooms. Luggage was safe an...

We stayed here for 5 nights and would definitely recommend to anyone looking at something cheaper than a resort. All the staff were outgoing, friendly and accommodating, spoke good English and always had a smile on. Bodega is the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Right by all the action in Patong so you can hear it from your room but it rarely affected my sleep. Rooms are air conditioned - once we asked for it to be turned up it was perfect.

Cafe has a really good vibe, my only complaint would be the food service. Our meals didn't come out at the same time once, and some times some people had finished their meal before the rest of our group had even been served. We did find this to be the case at most Thai places we ate though.

Would definitely stay again.

This place is awesome! It's like the indie hostel of Thailand. The staff are sooo friendly.. We arrived in the middle of the night (2 am) after a hell journey with a terrible company that has ducked us around for ages and these guys made us feel welcome and safe straight away. Run by 2 outgoing but very friendly Thai guys that are hilarious. Good cocktails, very clean rooms!!!! Theres a couple id girls who are literally cleaning non stop. Didn't see a bug the whole time I was there. Clean towels every day. They have a strict no prostitute rule so if your a skeezebag that wants to pay for cheap sex this is not the place for you. Lockable lockers in every room. There's some one downstairs all night so no randoms wander in although its just off he Main Street so no real danger of that at all. Perfect location quiet enough you get a good nights sleep but deffinitly close enough to the action.
