“Great hostel”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

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.

Not only was the staff fantastic, but the rooms were up to par with all that was advertized.

Our check in was a breeze! Just be sure to have enough Baht to pay up front as there is a charge to use your credit card. We were in Bodega # 2 which was across the street as we decided to have a private room. It was easily accessible, and the staff helped us carry our very heavy luggage up to the top of the 3rd level. Beware the stairs... they are quite steep!

In the lounge area the food was fantatic. Try the Green Curry- very hot, but it was one of my favorites on the trip. Their happy hour is also really great. If you can beat Rum at a game of Jenga then its free drinks for you. My friend was so close, but didn't make it. If you can do it, cheers to you!

They were also great at suggesting trips. We took the 1 day tour to the phi phi islands. The price was severely discounted for us and the staff on the trip was amazing as well. If you end up taking this tour look out for Suzy the tour guide :)

As far as whats in the area.... everything. A lot of shopping (though I found shopping in Bangkok was cheaper). Night life on Bangala road was incredible. So much to see and do. For me it was like a mixture of Las Vegas and Roasrito beach put together. We went to Scruffy McMurphys one night which had a great live irish band and double vodka redbulls for only 100 baht.

I loved my time at Bodega and look forward to coming back in the future. Thank you Bodega!

I stayed here when I first arrived in Thailand and I felt so at home as soon as I arrived. The staff were so friendly and the rooms were lovely. I wasn't expecting such a nice place at all! Met some great people and it's in a perfect location, near the beach and near all the crazy parties in Patong!

stayed on 2 seperate times while around the islands and while patong wasnt quite my favourite place bodega made it easy to stay, its close enough to walk anywhere yet quiet a night, the rooms were very comfortable and clean and the food was very good. its the staff however that make this place awesome, very friendly and helpful, i had to get a flgith out early morning which meant leaving at 3 30am, they organised a cheap cab which was waiting for me without hassle. when we had problems with our ferry tickets they were on the phone straight away to help and solve our problems and staff were at the desk/bar 24/7 if u ever needed any help.
highly highly recommened

This is the place to stay if going to Phuket. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, hot water, great location but what makes this hostel so great is the staff. Someone is always available 24/7 willing to help you with anything, props to the owner for finding such a great staff, Rum & co. will always make you feel welcome and will help you with anything. The cook was pretty darn good too.

Bodega Hostel is really a very nice place to stay in Patong. It is located in walking distance to the partyarea and the beach, but still in a quiet location. We booked a double Private, which was very clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and the bar serves delicious food and drinks. I totally recommend eating there, its cheap and very tasty! Start your day with one of the fantastic smoothies or coffee! At the evening try to play Yenga with the stuff and have one of their good cocktails. At our last day we also could use the shower of the dorm room after our check out, so we could enjoy our last day at the beach. Would totally go there again!!
