Great location - 1 minute from Ko San Road and easy to get Taxis or TukTuks from. The receptionists were always friendly and booked us taxis when needed. REALLY comfortable room - proper duvets and efficient air conditioning. Highly recommended - infact we did go back after our first stay.

Our stay in Smile Buri House was great. We arrived early in the morning but were able to check in early. Our room was very clean with good WiFi and AC. The bathroom was good too. The staff were very friendly and there is a washing machine and tumble dryer for your use as well. A nice outside seating area with two computers. The location was excellent. Close to Kosan Road but not so close that you can hear the noise. Our taxi driver did struggle to find it, as it is located down an alley, so make sure you have the address and phone number written down. Overall, a very pleasant stay in Bangkok and we would stay here again.

the place is not easy to find the first time. However, once you find the place (just show the address to the locals and be on the look-out for the signage), Khaosan Road is just a few blocks away and along the way there are tons of food options that even the locals enjoy.

The proprietress speak little English but still nice to us.

The rooms are homey and not really hotel-like but it is relatively cheap.

It is a clean and comfortable place to stay if you are just looking for a place to sleep that is near Khaosan Road.

The room was ok, but the tv and aircon were not working properly. The biggest problem was, that the owner just didn't care about it. He looked at the aircon, couldn't fix it and then said to me to "take it easy" and left the room. When we checked out, there was another person at the counter and we asked if we could leave our luggage at the hotel until our flight starts. He said yes and we left our stuff there. When we came back to pick it up, the owner was there and was very unfriendly again. First he didn't want to give us our luggage back, because we couldn't prove that it's our's. Then after a short discussion, he gave it back, but wanted money for storing it there for a few hours. All in all i would not recommend this place to anyone.

For the price they charge this place is definitely worth it. Close to khao San without being noisy, only a 5 minute walk round the corner! Cleanest bedding and towels we have come across in Asia.

The nearby mosque is very loud, but we found it more amusing every morning rather than annoying.

We did wake up to find our bathroom ceiling leaking one morning. But when we informed reception they quickly helped us move rooms so it was not an issue.

Nice location, really close to Khao San Road, spacious room with A/C. Bathroom mas good. Comfortable bed. Wifi really works. The only bad thing is that there's a mosque reaaly close to the hostel. So you can hear the call at 5am very loud. It only takes 5 minutes but..

The location near Khao San Road but far enough from the noise. Cleanliness is very good. Place is very simple, small room, no lift, but excellent value for money. I stayed twice on this trip and would definately stay again.
