Right near Bangla road (bar and action hub). The staff are very friendly and more than willing to help or have a chat. The four bed room was spacious with aircon and clean bathroom. Bar downstairs to meet fellow travelers (happy hours around 6pm). Overall very enjoyable and would recommend and stay here again.

I like the dog in the reception lol. And this hotel is good for a budget trip. The bed was ok the shower sometimes not run so we had to call them to fix it and they managed a good job. Staff are friendly and helpful. The location is super great near the beach by the bike just three mins...

The food here was better than the restaurants and more authentic. Delicious smoothies. Stayed in a private room, which was in a separate building across the street. AC worked well and there was WiFi in the rooms. Clean, but average amenities. Not super fantastic, but nothing to say against it either.

Hey, I stayed one night in the hostel because all the reviews sounded really good! But after that night, I can't completely understand the whole enthusiasm about the hostel! The dorm is really simple and small, beds are ok. The bathrooms are rather old and a little bit rundown! The also turned off the air condition during the day plus...

Hey there Thomas, thanks for taking the time to review. Just a note - we do like to open the windows during the day to let in some fresh air, but anytime a guest wants to take a nap or hang out in the room during these hours please just ask and we are happy to turn the A/C back...

I had an amazing time in Phuket, and it was thanks in part to the wonderful advice and expertise of the staff at Bodega. They helped me book tickets for James Bond Island, Fantasea etc, as well as plan solo trips on my own. My room was nice and the location was very convenient, quick walk to the beach and...

Staffed by incredible people, helpful and extremely friendly! Wouldn't look past for future accommodation. After spending a lot of time in and around Thailand, this really stood out. A safe cornerstone in a bustling metropolis. Big thanks to the team!

As with many others I found Bodega to be the best place to stay. Im at the older end of the backpacking circuit being 60 but my experience was exceptional. Concern and care about what you needed, wanted to do, where to go, comfort, social inclusion...all were brilliant. Bodega was very clean, secure, food was excellent and all staff where...
