We really enjoyed our stay at Bodega. The rooms were good, the service was fantastic and we had a great time. They helped us with everything and got us a ride to the airport for half of what it should've cost.

The location was nice, down a quiet street but near the beach and mall.

The wireless internet was not working hardly at all the entire time we were there so it was disappointing that we couldn't call family on Christmas.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Bodega and would definitely recommend it!

I visited Phuket with a couple of friends. Being on a shoe string budget, we decided to stay the bodega. We were apprehensive of the quality, but were surprized on reaching the place. The hotel is a small little place, right off the most happening street in phuket. You are exrtemely close (walkable) to the nightlife of phuket, yet far enough to be away from the noise for a peaceful sleep.

The rooms are not luxurious, nor are they intended to be. It is extremely good value for money. what you get is clean rooms, a working air conditioner, and free wifi. .The owner is an extremely cheerful guy, and helped us pick the best of everything in Phuket. The breakfast (though paid) is amazing value too.

the rest of the staff is also very helpful. All in all, it makes for a very comfortable stay. for people on a budget, there cant be a better place to stay. If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere and be prepared to spend accordingly.

Beds were dirty upon arrival (hair, blood stains, pubic hair, other dirt) and shower very smelly in our private room accross the street. There was no complementary water, room service NOT everyday (they only came the 3rd day) as advertised on website. On the 3rd day there was almost 12 hours NO water (incl. toilet) in all the rooms opposite the streets. Having stayed in 20+ hostels the last 3 months I can firmly say that this was the very worst. People in dorms were no backpackers but drunks.

Our trip in Thailand was distrastrous to say the least, but the guys at Bodega made our trip worthwhile, the staff (ram, ra, amann and all the crew) were extremely helpful and friendly and saved us on numerous times. Close to the famed bangalore road and patong beach i recommend anyone looking for a fun but also chill environment to stay here. Defintely worth it!! We felt really well looked after!

Love and miss all the guys there! :)

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights, i enjoy it a lot, the staff here is really good, they found my iPhone and they give it back to me, so they are very honest, you can trust on them for any advice.
I recomend you staying in this hostel, is clean and they have a good area to chill out.

We started and ended our month long trip to Thailand at Bodega and i have nothing but great things to say about the place. Overall the rooms are are clean and well maintained (they could use a little refresh), but what makes the place special is the staff - fun, honest, always there to help you out and will go out of their way to accommodate you. It's a great place to meet other travelers and have some fun.

Stayed here with my girlfriend and another friend around New years 2011 and really enjoyed our time here. We found all the staff to be very friendly from beginning to end and had no trouble in sorting out any problems we had, (we mentioned that the ground floor room was a bit noisy after our first night, and were given new rooms a couple of days later without any fuss, though I think even this was a one-off with some drunk coming in and mouthing off... we had no problems at all with any noise after that.)

The rooms were pretty good in the new hotel, about right for the price, (though Patong appeared to us to be very expensive in general) clean and well maintained each day. The Thai guys behind the bar in the hostel part of Bodega were great craic and very good at serving up every possible kind of cocktail and shot imaginable. Very sociable and entertaining people.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to others.
