Bee runs the cleanest hostel in Thailand, her staff is always busy Doing something and they change your bed sheets everyday. Breakfast is good, the proximity to everything is excellent (close to skytrain so it's cheap to go anywhere inc. Airport). I will come back here when I return to bangkok

I stayed at Smile Society for 8 nights in May. I was greeted warmly and shown around the hostel. The 8 bed dorm in which I stayed was clean, with a locker provided. The AC worked and bathroom also clean - a huge bonus. The first floor was a communal floor, which was great for meeting people :) there are...

Nice hostel, well situated, not far away from the main spots, with clean rooms and Ms Bee is really helpful and always available when you need her (if she is not here, e-mail response in 5 minutes)! I really enjoyed my stay here and can recommend it!

Had a lovely stay at The Smile Society. The hostel has a very chilled out atmosphere which was just what we needed after a long haul flight. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are tidy and breakfast is included in the price. The hostel was just a short taxi (or tuk tuk) ride from Khao San Road...

When we first arrived in Bangkok it was at around midnight and the staff rushed over to meet us at the front door even though it was after hours. They requested we remove our shoes for respect and to keep the facility clean, which I have no problem doing since I do so at home. The room we had came...

Good clean hostel with welcoming and helpful staff. We travelled as a couple and were in a private room, double bed with an ensuite bathroom.

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.
