I stayed at Bodega Hostel which is very close to the famous Bangla Road. This is probably the best hostel I stayed at in Thailand, in terms of the complete package i.e. atmosphere, great dorms and friendly staff. I stayed in the right person mixed dorms and it was a wonderful experience. I met a lot of people from all across the globe and the entire vibe about the place was really friendly. Every evening we would start with a few drinking games followed by a bar crawl in which we would go to a few bars on Bangla Road.I would highly reccomend staying here. I am sure Dan, Ben and Jake (the owners/staff) will make you have a great time.
Bangla Road is the heart of all Phuket Nightlife. Bangla road is not just a road, but a street dedicated to bar,discos, music and crowded with Pretty girl's. A unique atmosphere. Bangla Road in Patong on Phuket Island is world famous and if you do not know well about this is that it is not for you. It is simply the street with all the gogo(night club) bar, street prostitutes and brothels. I recommend the Bar "Gossip" on Bangla Road, small but good atmosphere.
