I can't recommend this hostel highly enough, not only are the rooms comfortable and clean, with decent bathrooms, but the staff who work here are so helpful and willing to assist you with any matter (for example when my friends and I had to visit the tourism police after being scammed by a tuk tuk driver). The breakfast will set...

This is very well located within walking distance for the sky train, linking you in to the rest of Bangkok. I got a taxi from the airport and the driver had no problems finding the location. For those who would like to go the night market is on the next street, with dancing girl bars lining each side, and for...

A part of having a memorable trip in Bangkok is because of the excellent service they provided to me and my cousin. They arranged the Elephant Riding ang Floating Market TOur for us. And since we will leave early, they provided us packed breakfast to go. Such the sweetest gesture! Our room was always maintained clean. Will definitely be back...

Stayed at smile society twice this past month. This has to be one of the cleanest hostels in Thailand! The staff are super friendly and very helpful! Felt very comfortable for the duration of both our stays. Fairly priced.

I have no complaints about my stay at Smile Society! It was clean and very comfortable and the lady who runs it is very sweet. It's conveniently close to the BTS line, which is helpful when coming from the airport, but not super conveniently close to tourist attractions like the Grand Palace and Khao San Street. It is close to...

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for our first 3 nights in Bangkok and had a great time. It is situated near loads of activities such as boat rides and temple visit as well as the sky bar where The Hangover Part 2 was filmed. You can also get a taxi or tuk tuk almost anywhere too. As for the...

Very clean and comfortable hostel! Definitely felt welcomed here and the owner is very knowledgeable and willing to help with best places to visit, transport etc. Not a place to be if you're looking for a party but still a social environment. Location is excellent (pretty much on the silom road!) and very close to the skytrain for travelling to...

I recently traveled to Bangkok with a group of friends and we stayed in Smile Society for 3 nights and LOVED our experience. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the location is right next to the metro and Skyrail stations, and we all felt very safe during our stay with them. We were provided step-by-step instructions of how to...

Upon arrival I was greeted by pleasant, polite staff. The facility was incredibly clean, which was a relief compared to other hostels I've stayed in. Loved the common room as well, great for meeting people!

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights. Bee is so welcoming and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are spotless, and the location is really good (close to the skytrain and a night market). Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Bangkok

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.
