Bodega Chiang Mai is the wildest party hostel Chiang Mai! We’re located just a small walk outside of Thapae Gate and close to Night Bazaar.

Chiang Mai is one of Thailand’s largest cities, but the clear capital of culture in Northern Thailand. We offer a range of tours, from visiting ethical elephant sanctuaries to an afternoon at the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon water park! By night?

Bodega Chiang Mai Party Hostel

The Best Party Hostel in Chiang Mai

You are about to commit to the party of a lifetime and adventures you won’t forget. Welcome to Bodega. Welcome to the fam!

Unlike Bangkok, Chiang Mai has a more laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. From the world-class coffee breweries to the ancient temple ruins you’ll pass by while exploring, the city oozes comfort and wonder at the same time. We offer a range of tours, including an afternoon at the Sticky Waterfalls, bathing elephants and the ninja obstacle course at the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon water park.

Thailand and elephants are damn near synonymous, so of course you’ll want to get in your quality time with these beautiful creatures. Treatment of elephants have an unfortunate history of hard labor and permanently damage from doing party tricks and being ridden. Fortunately for you, Bodega has partnered with a sustainable and ethical elephant sanctuary for your peace of mind. You’ll be feeding and bathing elephants that are treated with the respect they deserve in no time. Elephants never forget and neither will you!

After you’ve had your much needed relaxing and exploration of Chiang Mai’s chill vibes, we crank the party up to 11 by night. We run the largest pub crawl in Chiang Mai and run different party events at our hostel every night of the week. Are you ready to get wild?!

Bodega Chiang Mai Party Hostel

The Best Party Hostel in Chiang Mai

Bodega has not one, but two backpacker hostels in Chiang Mai. This is the original party hostel, while Bodega Thapae is our newest location. If you want to be at the centre of the party experience, this is where you should book. No doubt about it. Every night at 7:30 PM, we run free shuttles from our Thapae location to Bodega Chiang Mai Party Hostel. Can you imagine the sheer intensity of 2 hostels joining forces for an epic party?!

When you’re not partying your ass off, you’re going to want to keep your bellies full and nurse those hangovers so you can do it all over again the next night. That’s why we have a restaurant with some of the best Thai food you’ll eat as well as Western comfort food for when you’re missing home.

When booking your dorm with us, make sure to book directly through our website to get the best deal. Bodega guarantees the best value for money when booking directly. Make sure to use our promo code for 10% off: PARTYNAKED

Frequently Asked Questions

Bodega Chiang Mai Party Hostel is located just a short walk from Thapae Gate.

The easiest way to get here from the airport is to grab a taxi for 150THB. We’ve been around for quite some time so they’ll have no issues bringing you to Bodega.

If you’re traveling on a tighter budget, you can walk outside the airport and wait for a red songthaew for a 50THB (per person) ride. It’s a longer drive since you’ll be lumped in with other travellers getting dropped off at their accomodation, but at least you save enough baht for an extra drink! 😉

You can contact us through email, by phone or directly through our Facebook Page. We make it easy for you!

If you’re merely looking for a bed to sleep in, there are plenty of other hostels you can book.

Picture this: By day, you’re going on epic adventures and eating authentic Thai food, including some of the best khao soi curry in town. By night, you’re experiencing the very best of Chiang Mai’s nightlife on our pub crawl with a massive squad composed of guests from both of our hostels. At the end of it all, you’re laying down in one of the comfiest beds you’ll experience in your entire backpacking trip in Southeast Asia.

And that’s just scratching the surface. Our staff are extremely knowledgeable on just about anything you could want to check out in Chiang Mai, from Muay Thai fights to ziplining adventures. We also run different events every night of the week, so there’s never a dull moment partying with us.
