Excellent location. Right by the Skytrain. Lots of food options on the doorstep. Night market. Bee is the manager and very helpful and friendly. Other staff not so smiley but this may be due to a lack of shared language. Everywhere very clean and secure. It would be good to have fresh milk available for breakfast as well as fresh fruit and juice. We were a group of 3 and it suited us well. Not sure if you'd be able to meet other people there easily if you were on you're own.

the owner is like one big encyclopedia on Bangkok, she is really helpfull and knows everything. the location is in silom instead of near khoa San road which i quiet liked. it is really close to the skytrain which in my opinion is the best way of transportation. rooms are cleaned every day and the staff is constantly cleaning the other parts of the hostel. definatly gonna stay there again

My friend and I stayed in a private ensuite room at Smile Society during a five day visit to Bangkok. We were visiting from the USA. The staff were very helpful in allowing us to store our bags when we arrived early in the morning via overnight train. Check in was a breeze and the room itself better resembled a hotel than a hostel. The room was cleaned daily and the shower always had hot water. Others at the hostel were friendly and sociable.

Smile society is just for a society that wants to smile. Having a good accomodation close to the main attractions in town and easy to access everywhere paying reasonable prices is just a good argument to stay there. The hostel lady is very helpful and knows a lot of useful information. Rooms are spacious and clean, shower is fine and people are open-minded. My next stay in Bangkok is gonna be there again. Thumbs up!

Great location, much better than being in Khao San Road. I met some lovely people at breakfast, and got to experience a lot of Bangkok in just a couple days. She's helpful, and caught me a metered cab to the train station. She and her staff seem very busy. Rooms and toilets were clean :)

A great hostel. Bee and her crew made us very "at home". The location is handy and was just what we needed as "new travellers". Breakfast was a great opportunity to meet other travellers and get advice/directions about what to do in Bangkok. Will definitely stay here again!

This hostel is in a really good location - near the trains and in a busy area where there's a night market almost every night. The owners are really sweet and are really helpful. Would definitely return if ever in Bangkok again.

The nice lady at the reception was very helpful. We didn't even have to ask to get all the information we needed and even more. She also cared a lot for our safety. The only little negative thing was a mouldy spot and musty smell in our room. The rest of our 3 night stay was perfect.

Great little hostel near Sala Daeng! Extremely friendly and helpful staff: ask them everything about sites in/around Bangkok and they tell you if it's worth seeing it, how to get there, how much you will pay to get there etc. Very helpful!

This isn't the cheapest hostel in Bangkok, but it's quiet, in a good location and they serve breakfast. Front desk staff speak good English and can advise you on transport and sightseeing without being pushy about booking tours. Safe neighbourhood and close to SkyTrain/metro as well as many cheap food options. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. This is not a party hostel (for that, go to Khao San Row) and there is not as much socializing as at some places because people keep to their rooms.
