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.

We stayed at smile society twice on our trip because it's one of the best places I've stayed in Thailand. The location is veryy good. The place feels like a home: it's safe, clean and you have the ability to meet nice people in the common room. The staff is also very friendly and helpfull. I really recommend this hostel... More

This was my very first hostel I stayed at. I have always been told that hostels in south east Asia would be inexpensive in the range between $7-10, so I was surprised to see that smile society was around $20 CAD; however, I realize that it is just Bangkok that has higher rates for a hostel. So for new backpackers... More

I ended up staying at smile society twice during my trip in Thailand. Bee is very friendly and always wants to help you if your going somewhere. Cleanest hostel I stayed at during my whole time and if I ever go back to bangkok I will sure to make a visit.

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff are always smiling, and are always working hard to keep the place tidy and running. It's in a great location with markets and street food, banks and shopping malls around but still on a nice quiet street. Especially loved it here because of the staff. Being served breakfast... More

Can only reinforce the positive comments that everyone else has made. I stayed in a single room. Very clean and well provided for including a small TV and aircon. Wifi and computers for use in common areas. Fun and easy to meet others. During my travels in rural Thailand I fell ill and had to make an emergency return to... More

All together my stay at the hostel was nice. What I really like is that the hostel is very clean and the beds are comfortable. The woman at the reception was very nice, helpful and spoke, unlike the rest of the staff, excellent english. What I didn't appreciate is that they are not willing to show the room before before...

This hostel was the best city hostel I have stayed in. All large cities are a little more pricey in terms of accommodation but in this case it was definitely worth the money. I stayed here twice, the first time extending my stay by 4 days! Although it is close to the seedier side of Bangkok, the location on Silom... More

I stayed here my first time to Bangkok, based on reviews I read online and the hostel absolutely lived up to what others had written. I was skeptical at first to stay in Hostels in SE Asia, however this hostel was nicer and cleaner than most of my hostels in Europe. Very sweet women run this boutique hostel. They speak... More
