Bee (the owner), her sister and their staff are great - always willing to help and advise on the best way to get around and the exact prices things should be (!). I stayed her when I first arrived in Thailand and came straight back at the end of... More

It was the first hostel i stayed in whilst in SE Asia, and the hostel i stayed in on my last night after 3 1/2 months of travel. Its a perfect, safe choice for a hostel. If you want to play it safe and have a trustworthy clean place to stay this is it. The boss is helpful and friendly.... More

Excellent idea to stay there on my first trip to the far east. It's on the edge of Pratpong, the red light district. You get touted all the time. But after a few days they get used to you, if you make your intentions clear. Met some amazing people from all over the world. It is a place of safety... More

I booked a private room here on booking.com over a month in advance. I arrived at the Smile Society at 7 am and was allowed to leave my bags there and was told to come back at 1 pm to check in. When I returned the manager looked at my passport and told me that I couldn't stay there because... More

Best hostel I've been in Bangkok. Very convenient loation, clean rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is included and delicious. If you need advice and travel tips I'd recommend to talk to the receptionist. She's very helpful for any kind of requests. Will definitely come back :)

Spent three nights here in a private room with shared bath. It is spotlessly clean. It is quiet and secure. The location is great, minutes away from BTS trains to take you wherever you want to go. Note: it is a hostel so there is a rental charge for towels, as well as a deposit for both towels and keys.... More

I stayed in this hostel in the middle of november for 2 nights. The hostel is very clean and well kept. What makes the hostel stand out is the lady who runs it. She is very friendly and helps you with whatever. She informs you about where to go and how much you should pay for something. Definite recommend!
