Very clean place with not too much room in the rooms (fairly standard for Bangkok) but roomy bathroom in the private ensuite. The woman at reception was incredibly friendly and helpful - gave good advice and recommendations for the city. Free breakfast included is nice though pretty basic. Great location close to BST - would definitely stay again

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

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... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
