I really can't say enough great things about this place! We're budget travelers and have stayed in many a tiny, dingy hostels as we see the world. This place was way different as far as comfort and size, but still very inexpensive! We'd never been to Bangkok, so it was nice that the owner helped us with a suggested itinerary for the free day we had after we checked out but before we caught out train to go south. We slept in a very comfy bed...the pictures of the rooms are very accurate! We got free breakfast, then we were invited to leave our bags there in their storage room all day while we saw the city backpack-free, since our train didn't leave until the evening. She told us exactly how to get around on the sky-train, metro and water taxis. She told how where to get on/off and exactly how much each thing would cost. Now we can get around Bangkok with no problem, all thanks to her help in getting us started. Also, very good location! Close to public transportation and great food!!! Next time we're in Bangkok, we aren't even shopping the hostels, we're going straight back to Smile Society! We met up with some other friends who happened to be staying at a 5-star place with a different group tour. When they saw our room at Smile Society, they were very impressed and remarked that they'd probably feel more comfortable there.
