I am surprised this is not the best rated hostel in phuket, when clearly it is. Special shout to Dain, who owns the place and takes an extra step to make sure everyone staying there is comfortable and having fun. The location is a big + located right next to the mains; it is in a safe area unlike other...

I've stayed here twice - once in Oct/Nov 2016 and again in Feb 2017. Hostel is perfectly located by Patong beach, shops, food, etc. Rooms are nice, beds are comfortable - wifi is strong! Each bed has its own light, wall plug and little shelf which is always a bonus in a dorm! The bar was nice and the owner/staff...

Stayed here for 8 nights for a couples holiday, in a private room with our own bathroom, which was cleaned each day. We received a free bottle of water each day, which, considering the hot and humid weather, was appreciated! Patong beach is a few minutes walk away, and nearby there's a mixture of Thai/Western shops, bars, restaurants, etc. The...

This hostel was good for the price. They had excellent laundry service, the food was good and cheap and the staff were really lovely people. Only Problems would be noisy beds and our toilet in our dorm smelt awful from the drains. Only recommend staying if you're wanting to party in Patong. Good location for close to tourist areas if...

Myself and three friends stayed here for 4 days and loved it! Location is ideal as it is close to Patong beach as well as Bangla road incase you're down to partaaay. Dane the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly - the same goes to the rest of the staff (Particularly Rah: Thumbs up pal) - they organized a killer...

We stayed at Bodega about a year ago while vacationing with my 3 friends and we totally loved. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bar and restaurant are also great...you could hang by the couches all day and enjoy cold beer or cocktails. If you get restless, Bangla Road is just 5 minutes away or you can stroll to...

I stayed here for 4 nights. The atmosphere is very social. The hostel is run very well. Dain and his staff really encourage a very social enviroment. Its close to the beach, party strip and restaurants. I had a private room and it felt more like a hotel room than a hostel. I'm not a fan of Patong but I...

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...
