“Mrs. Bee makes the difference”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Well situated, beds are good, everything is clean. Really quiet, not the place I would choose to party.

Not in the backpackers area, but the sky train and the mrt are at walking distance.

Mrs. Bee knows how to get to everywhere in Bangkok, and really helpful.

I would have like to have a map provided there... But everything was good, breakfasts were good, but basics

The people that own this hostel are some of the nicest that I've met. They will treat you like friends from the moment that you come in. The food in the restaurant is excellent. Their travel tips are good.

***Sex tourists should stay away as they will not allow "guests". I found this a plus, though some might find it a negative trait.***

Worth every penny for the hospitality we received, staff are so hard working and go above & beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay. A great breakfast is included hot drink, muffin toasted rolls & fruit prepared for you. Theres a comfy common room area with wifi games & books making it a great place to meet other people. Everywhere is clean & safe woth a homely feeling. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for a total of 3 nights. This hostel is very clean, comfortable and in a great location. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Her english was great, so made it easy to communicate and get the answers/information we needed. Would totally go back and highly recommend this place.

It was our second stay at Smile Society in Bangkok. The small hotel's location at Silom is very "downtown" but the hotel is very quiet because it's a few meters away from the mainstreet.
Our room was spotless clean although not very spacious but i think in this location for that price you won't get it any better.
The Owners are really nice and kind and can give you a few good recommandations what to do... e.g. trying the foodstalls just around a few corners where local thai "business-people" have their quick lunch...

Smile Society was recommended to me by a friend and I found it to be a great hostel with great staff! Each bed has its own locker and its own power outlet. The bathrooms were separated by gender, had hot showers, and provided shower gel and shampoo. There is free wifi in the common area.

Upon checking in, I was given a notice about popular scams to watch out for, as well as restaurants/places to avoid. When I checked out, the receptionist helped me get a taxi to my destination, explaining the address in Thai and making sure the driver set the meter. The staff goes above and beyond! Highly recommended!
