189/3 Rat U Thit, Phuket, Thailand
Bodega is a relaxed and vibey hostel, music cafe and gallery in the heart of bustling Patong - the heart of the action on Phuket. It's only a 5 -10 minute walk (honestly! - depending on the distractions...) to the beach and the nightlife madness of Bangla Road, and yet we are located in a peaceful street, ensuring a good nights rest.
We offer comfortable en suite double rooms and dorm beds at reasonable rates and we pride ourselves on our top quality service and relaxed vibe.
All private rooms are equipped with King size beds, AC, Fan, safe, cable TV, free Wi-Fi access, and en suite bathrooms.
Our 8 bed dorm offers full size single beds with duvets, A/C, security lockers, 2 bathrooms, individual reading lights/power points, free Wi Fi access and a balcony. All linen and towels are supplied.
Our 4 bed dorms also offer full size single beds, a private bathroom, A/C, locker draws, free Wi Fi access and individual lights/power points. Again, all linen and towels are supplied
All of our rooms are serviced daily.
For guests traveling without a laptop we have 2 guest computers complete with skype phones. We also have a games room and chill lounge, to relax in on those (rare) rainy days.
Bodega's cafe/gallery showcases local aspiring artists and musicians, and serves coffees, our famous fresh fruit smoothies, Thai and international food - all at reasonable prices. Regular parties are organized to bring together local musicians and D.J's. Phuket has so much local talent!
