Only stayed here for two nights, but it was a really good hostel. Receptionist was incredibly friendly and always went out of her way to help, as did other Saltash members. Dorms and bathrooms were continuously cleaned. Atmosphere is super chilled and quiet, perfect place to get away from the madness of the city!

I've been in this hostel 3 times last year while I was traveling through south east Asia. The hostel is perfect and the location is great! Daily food market, public transport, a park nearby and situated in a lively neighborhood. A lot of great street food in the evenings just around the corner. The owners are super sweet too! They...

We stayed at the Smile Society when we arrived in Thailand for a 2 week break. The society is in a fantastic location to be able to see the night markets and night life that the city has to offer. It is also in a very convenient location as it is in a short walking distance of the sky train... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and everything is good. Particularly, there are 3 stand out points that make me interested in Smile Society very much. First, the location is quite close to sky-train and bus (5 minutes walking), then it's easy to get access to everywhere of Bangkok. Night market, super market, restaurants and even day-light market are just... More

The place is very clean and has a convenient location only a 5 minute walk from the skytrain and the subway. It is however pretty far away (20 minute drive) from the Grand Palace and Kao Sen Road. Overall the hostel is very good and offers a great free breakfast.

Really great hostel in Bangkok. Silom the area is a little aggressive in that it's one of the red light areas so you will be hassled about going to shows on your way to the hostel. Outside of the the hostel felt extremely safe, the owner was very kind and packed us breakfast the morning of our early flight, rooms... More

It was my first time to visit in Bangkok with my kids and my 1st time to stay in a hostel. I would say I enjoyed staying in hostel than any hotel I've been before. Here's the reasons why you must stay in this place while in Bangkok. 1. Close to BTS 2. It's in a busy road but quite... More
