Fantastic hostel, I would definitely recommend you stay here. I was here to do a visa run for Myanmar and it is ideally situated in the Silom district. Silom itself is a nice neighbourhood, less crazy than khaosan. Staff are also excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable. It is also one of the cleaner places I have stayed it. Very well run.

Smile society is in a really great location and was a handy base for a few days in Bangkok. It's 5 minutes walk from the BTS station and very close to plenty of evening entertainments (food, shopping and red light district - if you're so inclined). There's a small communal area on the 1st floor which was good to meet other travellers at - I wouldn't say there were any standout facilities, but the hostel provided a clean and comfy stay

The current description is simply false: There are neither lockers, nor roof top terrace, nor restaurant and the "outdoor terrace", "green lung" and "garden" boil down to a porch with some plants and barely space to sit. The common room is dark and windowless, not very ideal to get to talk to others. The bright white room on the pictures is just for breakfast and stuffed with aquariums and the like. Staff is friendly, but it was altogether too dark and off my expectations/the descriptions

I really loved this hostel, the owner could not of been any better, she was amazing, helped you with anything. there was a great atmosphier in the hostel, lots of solo travellers from all over the world which made it really easy to make new friends. the hostel is located 2 mins from Patpong market, and about a 5 min walk to the Sky Train and about 10 mins from the metro which made it easy to get around, id 100% stay here again

This hostel was great! I had the double private ensuite which gave me lots of sleeping room, a private bath and breakfast included. All areas were impeccably clean and my room was cleaned daily. The staff was great and went above and beyond to help me! The location was great, right off a Main Street so it's easy to grab a taxi or tuk tuk and the nearest train station was a short walk. I felt very safe walking even late at night. There's no elevator and it is a very quiet place to stay. 5 stars!

Helpful staff and very clean, would stay here again. Not much social atmosphere. Just a quiet, efficient place to stay. They run tours from the hostile that are pricey for Bangkok, save yourself the money and do things on your own.

clean and modern facilities, but a little cramped in the rooms and common area. would be nice if they opened up the balcony on the top floor. social atmosphere is nonexistent. rarely anyone at the reception and you have to call them if they are not there. they say the front door is going to be repaired, but it was never done in the week i was there. while one of the managers had good people skills (tall, skinny, short hair, glasses), the other manager clearly did not.

Delicious breakfast, great security, overall great security. The only downside was that some of the staff didn't speak English but everything else was great :)

Clean and ideally located, with good security. The host is also very helpful with any questions you might have on general information or travel plans in Thailand.

The hostel was easy enough to find from Sala Daeng station. The beds were clean and comfortable with ample AC. The bathrooms were tidy but smelly in the mornings. Breakfast was a good continental breakfast uncommon for hostels. I liked the security cards necessary to enter the main area and room.

Staff was more than accomodating - even packed me a to-go breakfast because I had to leave super early (I didn't even ask!). Facilities have everything you need and are absolutely pristine. Wifi signal is great. Right next to the night market and tons of stuff to do on Silom. Will stay here every time I'm in Bangkok.
