The trick will be to match up the wood and the stain as best as possible. It looks like some kind of cheap veneer with MDF underneath. Go to a store that sells wood plugs, and find one that is the right size or larger, then drill the hole deep enough for the plug to sit flush. Stain, then glue it in with the grain running in the same direction. Don't expect it to be perfect.

Or another option would be to get a plug cutter and cut another plug out of the same piece in a place that can't be seen. That way the veneer will match.
