Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Good hostel. Check in was quickly (didn’t book in advance). Had an eight-bedroom dorm. Breakfast was good and the woman helped a lot: places to visit, getting back to the airport, where to eat, etc. So would definitely come back if I visit Bangkok again.

The Hostel was fantastic, clean, friendly and with a great Thai Breakfast included. The Host who runs the Hostel, Bee, asked me to join the whatsapp group and gave me all the options for transport and location all to my phone... Easy... The Hostel is located in Silom, a vibrant district, it's a great location to get to all the sites as it's close to Sky Train and Metro Stn's. Bee will help you with Tours and advise you always on the best and safest ways to get anywhere, anything you need she will always help. Will definitely stay again. Thanks Bee.

The hostess is very friendly and helped us finding our way in Bangkok. She knows where to go (and when to go), for example for markets or street food. The hostel (including beds, showers and toilets) was very clean and the beds where great. You can make yourself a free coffee or tea and relax on the couch. The location was great. A quiet side street on Silom road, close to markets, night life, Lumbine park and street food. But if you don't go to the nightlife streets, you won't even notice it's there. The BTS (skytrain) station and the metro station are 5 to 10 minutes walking distance.

I have been staying at Smile Society for 2 years now, each time I travel from my work in Myanmar to Bangkok for visa runs etc. Ms. Bee is extremely helpful, kind, and will always accommodate your needs. This hostel is very close to Sala Daeng BTS as well as several shopping centers on Silom, so it is very convenient. It is also quiet, as Soi 6 is tucked away from the noise of Silom Road. I highly recommend Smile Society!
