I recently stayed at Bodega and am happy to offer a favorable review. Here's the basics of what you might want to know.
-Location. It's on a quiet side street, but a quick walk to all the action. There's also a solid laundry shop down the way. Washed, pressed, folded and wrapped for 50 Baht/Kg. I wish I could get that in the states!!
-Room. A REAL western-grade twin mattress on the bed. Not some hard, futon-thin piece of garbage. Oh...and the great duvet and bath towel. Each bed has its own light and power outlet for charging your gear. They provide a good sized locker and key (200 Baht deposit, refundable at check out). The room is cleaned daily.
-Bathroom. Nice. The 8-person room has two bathrooms. Good shower - hot with solid pressure.
-The Cafe. They make great smoothies and it's a nice place to play on the wifi or listen to music at night.
-Internet. Wifi is good and there is one house computer.
-The 8-person room is four flights up and there is no lift.
Overall I'm impressed with what Bodega is trying and succeeding in doing. A hostel with a bit of flair...dare I say posh?
