Backpacker Hostel in Chiang Mai Thapae

Epic Parties!

Social Vibes!

Great Food!

Comfy Beds!

Bodega Thapae is our second backpacker hostel in Chiang Mai! We’re located just a short walk outside of Thapae Gate and not far off from our Chiang Mai party hostel. At night, we combine crowds from both locations for massive parties and the largest pub crawl in Chiang Mai. During the day, you can enjoy a wide variety of tours from the ninja obstacle course at the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon water park to a humbling day at an ethical elephant sanctuary. If you’re too hungover to handle a tour, we have an extensive Thai and Western menu to soak up the booze from the night before. Best of all, Bodega Chiang Mai Thapae has a beautiful pool that’s best portrayed in photos rather than words. Cheers!

Bodega Chiang Mai Thapae

The Best Hostel in Chiang Mai with a Pool

Are you ready to stay at the most badass backpacker hostel in Chiang Mai? Welcome to Bodega. Welcome to the fam!

Clean air-conditioned rooms with comfy beds and an epic pool to cool down is every backpackers’ dream when trekking through Thailand. Do we even need to mention the heat of Southeast Asia? It’s difficult for just about anyone to adjust, so some much-needed pool time will be your saving grace.

When you’re not living a life of absolute comfort, you should be out in the world exploring everything Chiang Mai has to offer. There are Sticky Waterfalls you can walk on, ethical elephant sanctuaries where you can bathe and feed elephants, the Grand Canyon water park and much more. We make it easy for you by offering a range of tours visting all of the above at affordable ticket prices. Bodega can also point you in the right direction of incredible Northern Thai restaurants, where to watch Muay Thai fights and some of our favorite hidden gems. Honestly, it’s tough to run out of things to do in Chiang Mai!

And that’s just scratching the surface of the daytime activities Chiang Mai has to offer. Once the sun sets, you’re in for a completely different world of excitement. Chiang Mai nightlife is bustling with craft beer breweries, rooftop bars and more. Bodega also runs the largest pub crawl in Chiang Mai 3 nights a week, giving you a taste of the party scene here in one fell swoop.

Bodega Chiang Mai Thapae

The Best Hostel in Chiang Mai with a Pool

Bodega Thapae is our second backpacker hostel in Chiang Mai. Just a short walk away from the infamous Thapae Gate, our hostel with a pool has a chill, relaxed vibe compared to our original flagship location. Don’t worry though, you’ll still be able to drink your hearts out – we combine the crowds from both locations at night for some truly epic parties!

On that some note, we do the same thing for our guided tours of Chiang Mai’s main tourist attractions: ethical elephant sanctuaries, the Sticky Waterfalls, Chiang Mai Grand Canyon water park and more! If you’re really feeling adventurous, there are plenty of half day and full day trips around Chiang Mai you should check out. Have you ever hiked up to a golden mountainside temple? How about ziplining over the jungle?!

Bodega Thapae has been designed from the ground up to accoodate travellers from all walks of life. Whether you’re a solo traveler, a couple, a large group or even a digital nomad, you’re covered. We have some of the comfiest beds you’ll experience while backpacking through Southeast Asia in both our dorms and private rooms.

No matter what type of accomodation you’re eyeing for your stay at Bodega, make sure to book directly through our website for the best deal guaranteed. Use our promo code when booking for a sexy 10% off: PARTYNAKED

Frequently Asked Questions

Bodega Thapae is located minutes away from the famous Thapae Gate.

The best way to make your way over to us is taking a taxi from the airport, which will cost you 150THB. Just tell them you’re staying at Bodega Thapae and they’ll bring you to our doorstep.

For those traveling on a shoestring budget, you’re better off waiting outside the airport for a red songthaew. They’ll charge 50THB per person but the catch is that the ride takes much longer than a taxi. Songthaews can hold around 8 people so you won’t necessarily be the first to be dropped off.

Whatever’s easiest for you! You can reach us directly through our Facebook Page, by phone or email.

Give us a shout if you have any questions at all! Our staff can help you out with planning your itinerary, answer questions about your booking, our hostel or Chiang Mai in general.

Is the cheapest place the best? Not at all, you get what you pay for. We try our best to keep our hostel dorm and private room prices as competitive as possible while offering a premier service, delivering fantastic value for your money.

Bodega Thapae is the hostel in Chiang Mai with a swimming pool you’ll be telling all your friends about.

We also serve a range of food, from Northern Thai staples like khao soi curry to Western-style breakfast items at great prices.

We also host different events every night of the week, complete with drink specials, prizes to be won and insane parties that you’ll never forget…or maybe you won’t remember it at all depending on how much you drink 😉

Definitely not! The Chiang Mai pub crawl is open to the public, so go ahead and invite your friends staying at other hostels. There’s nothing better than gathering a gigantic squad of backpackers for an epic pub crawl!

No problem. Reach out to us with your booking info via email, call us or through our Facebook Page.
