Stayed here for 3 nights towards the end of our trip and enjoyed it very much. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm room and it was clean and comfortable. There was one shared bathroom per floor, which turned out not to be an issue. Location was OK, within walking distance of the MRT. There was also a free breakfast offered,... More

Location is central, maybe a little sleazy for some but no complaints here. Common areas are nice, with pcs and wifi complementary. A litre of bottled water a day and a serviceable breakfast is included.

I stayed in the Smile Society for 7 days, because I applied for a visa to China and had to wait for it. I really love this place. It feels like home. It is very quiet but you still meet other people. There is a very comfortable couch in the living room - perfect for a calm evening watching a... More

We stayed at the Smile Society on a one-night stopover in Bangkok in February 2014. After seeing so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked a room without hesitation. Having now stayed there, I'm puzzled as to how it could ever be described as 'five-star'. We arrived after an eighteen-hour journey from the UK at about 11am. Having been asked... More

Excellent hostel to start/finish a trip through BKK. Very quiet, clean and cool, with nice hot water and large comfortable beds. Located in a quieter part of town, but walking distance to rowdy Patpong and a (long) walk to Chinatown and landmark hotels such as the Oriental and Lebua. Would definitely return on another trip.

The place was comforting, and Im not sure why the news show these protests in Bangkok, i walked through them a few times and bought some cheap clothes as well as some nice food where the street is closed, its almost like a fare, with markets and live music, the most peaceful event i have ever seen, i wouldn't even...

I would highly recommend this hostel to everyone who is planning to visit Bangkok. I didn't expect that the hostel is so clean everywhere : bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room and even laundry room. O yes, there is one thing special : the floors are paved with wooden board, it's just like what I have in my own house.... More
