I was there only for two nights, but the service was more than excelent! The work staff was VERY VERY helpful. Since my friend and I had the flight at night, they kept our backpaks while we were visiting Ayutthaya during the day, and they let us to have a shower at night before going to the airport, which it...

Stayed here 3 times now and always the same excellent service! Bee and her team go out their way to make you are comfortable and to make sure you don't get scammed (especially with taxis)! Always so clean as well and very social! Would recommend to everyone!

Stayed here for the first time. I was very impressed by the hostels cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff (the manager made sure we got into our taxi when we left and that the taxi driver turned on the meter). Great location! I would also recommend visiting the skybar across the road.

The staff was the best part -- one woman in particular at the front desk was great! She was eager to help us with any information we could possibly need, which was helpful to us as foreigners in Bangkok. She even packed us breakfast to go on the morning we left, and helped us over the phone while we bought... More

A lovely little room which felt safe due to the security cameras and swipe card entrance. Room was clean and free water was provided every day. Reception staff were helpful and gave us tips about bangkok. Breakfast was lovely. Only issue was it is quite hard to find!

I stayed at Smile Society on recommendation from my friend, and loved it! It has such a friendly vibe, was clean, comfortable, and the staff were extremely helpful giving great advice on getting around and what to do in the city. The area is a great location, more chilled than Khao San road with good transport links for getting across... More

My friend and I had only one day in Bangkok, and the owner of Smile Society was so helpful and patient in recommending all the sites we should hit and how to avoid tourist traps. The room was lovely and a short walk away from some gorgeous rooftop bars, local eateries, and a fascinating market. The hotel itself was very... More

I think I've stayed here 6 times now when passing through Bangkok. The reasons I keep coming are: 1. Bee on reception is superb an helpful. 2. The location, 4 mins from Sky Train Sala Daeng and the same from street food heaven on Soi Convent. 3. It's very clean. 4. It's social without being a 'party hostel' So if... More

This was the complete package of a great hostel. The staff were truly lovely and friendly, provided us with lists of places to see, would explain the map and transport till you understood it. They even packed us a breakfast and lunch when we checked out at 6am. The place was lovely and clean, social but never to the point... More
