Booked this place online because Smile Society ranked the highest on the list. There is a reason it's number one.
Run efficiently by Bee, the head lady who you'll come to know and love, Smile Society has got to be one of the best Hostels I've stayed in while traveling SE Asia. Plus, she speaks superb english, and is extremely informative and helpful when it comes to figuring out what to do and how to navigate Bangkok and its surroundings.
I actually checked out to go to another hotel, but came running back to Smile Society because this place is just that good.
I should mention that this is more of a boutique hostel. The rooms are immaculately and spotlessly clean. The most common lodging option is a dorm room, separated by gender. There is a mixed dorm option as well.
The bathrooms are fully powered by hot water and well-lit. The staff do a FANTASTIC job at keeping the space spotlessly clean.
Located in Pit Pong, Smile Society is in the center of all the hustle and bustle, yet is quietly located off the busy main street.
Breakfast of fresh fruit, hot tea/coffee, and bread is included in the price.
The hostel felt like a home away from home thanks to all the amenities (FREE INTERNET and WIFI, affordable laundry service) and comfort it offered. We departed early in the morning at around 4AM, yet Bee managed to call us a taxi and packed us our breakfast. That's what I call impeccable service.
When we came back to Bangkok before heading out to Laos, we had about 10 hours in the city. Bee allowed us to leave our bags and use the internet. Again, service like this is what makes this place amazing.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely!
