Ms. Bee welcomed me very warmly at Smile Society and was always there to help me getting around in Bangkok, booking train tickets and showing me great street food places in the neighbourhood. The rooms are clean and simple with a comfortable bed and a hot shower. I really enjoyed the spicy Thai breakfast (Tom Yum soup with brown rice) and will definitely come back soon.

This is my third time to stay in this hostel. I love this place! Though I think I have grown older as I find it more difficult to climb the stairs but overall, location, and cleanliness here are so great! I highly recommend this hostel.

As a frequent traveler to Bangkok, I have stayed here 4 times in a row now. I value the perfect location in bustling Silom where I have all I need within walking distance. I get a hotel room for the price of a hostel. Smile Society is just off Silom Rd, my coffee just around the corner, 711 across the street and for my breakfast (Thaoiand Western-style) I can stay indoors. Ms. Bee is a charm and always has time for a chat and a smile. For all first-timers to BKK she has a wealth of knowledge about what to do and how to get there. It is a bit tucked away behind an oasis of green in the middle of Bangkok so look for the name sign. Frans Kunst, Taipei, Taiwan.
