The rooms and showers are spotless and their maintenance schedule works like clockwork for the benefit of their guests. The two sisters running the place are also very accommodating and helpful, but straight enough to make sure that the place will be peaceful and comfortable to stay at. The location is also great as everything we have wanted to go...

Being middle-aged, my wife and I tend to avoid hostels, but we selected Smile Society primarily for its excellent location (near public transport, food, shopping, a park and a night market), good value and may positive online comments. We stayed in a private room with an en-suite bath. Smile Society is a very clean, well-organized smaller hostel with an outstanding...

Good hostel. Best to have a crack on with the staff to lighten up the atmosphere. Good facilities and the manager still made me breakfast 15 mins after time..... ahhhh, bless :) depending on what you're there for, i'd recommend a smaller dorm. Less chance of snoring and all that :)

We usually stay in the three bed ensuite. The rooms are always VERY clean and the staff in unbelievably helpful! They are always...

We stayed in a double private with on suite. Room was very clean. The manager was very nice and made some useful travel suggestions. Common room is a bit dark, as there's not much natural light. Very close to the MTR and night market

Best value for money in Bangkok. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and not noisy. Always enough showers at hand so no waiting in the morning. I went back after two weeks as I forgot my Bluetooth speaker. It was still there so you can trust the stag very much.

Rude and dishonest manager. She said it's full for the whole week even though booking.com and other sites are showing vacancies. Also it's in an alley so not particularly safe to go back to at night. The hostel is in a poor condition and very small - much worse than what's shown on pictures.

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
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.
