Stayed here on arrival in Thailand for 5 nights and was so good we stayed another 3 nights when we were leaving....yeah its not everyone's ideal hostel and its certainly not a party place but it doesn't claim to be... The location is brilliant, minutes from BTS, in an area where there are bars, night market and excellent street food..... More

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!

I had a great couple of nights at Smile Society in early November, and will be returning again next week! Very comfortable clean beds, good location right near the Skytrain, lovely staff and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. The day I checked out I was able to store my luggage all day and use the wifi and printing/scanning facilities no problem.... More

Perfect place to be if you want to spend your stay in Bangkok in a very central hostel with very nice and friendly hosts, clean rooms with aircon, basic breakfast and a perfect connection to the skytrain, food stalls, supermarkets, shopping malls, culture ... The place is safe and quiet though it is next to dazzling streets of Silom. Totally... More

I have stayed here twice and both times have been really great ! The hostel is clean and welcoming. The common space is comfortable and it is a great place to meet people with a large dining table, couch, tv, computers, foozeball table, etc. B at the front desk is friendly and full of helpful advice for your stay here...

This hostel is clean and the receptionist lady was awesome but her other staff were not so friendly, which made the experience somewhat awkward sometimes. The location is not ideal as I would have preferred the backpacker district but it is close to the sky train. I wouldn't recommend paying for breakfast as it is not worth it.
