Bangkok Hostel Recommendation: Smile Society

Owners Nid and Bee toured with us
After spending almost two weeks intermittently in Bangkok I was able to come out with two solid recommendations on where to stay. They all depend on what kind of Bangkok traveler you want to be:

Clean, Safe, Calm?
Smile Society Boutique Hostel @Silom Road
This brand new hostel has all the comforts of home: free computers, free breakfast, Foosball, books, in home movie theater, and hostel owners that treat you like family. To get to your room you have to pass through 3 levels of card scanning security. The dorms are made of spacious bunk beds, clean sheets, and large lockers to put your bags in. The shared single-sex bathrooms are clean and bright. This is a hostel that makes backpacking seem easy. Some might argue that the location is not prime. Smile Society is a 20 minute subway ride away from the famed hedonistic backpacking mecca Khao San Road. If being drunk every night isn't your thing, Smile Society is for you!

Bottom Line: The hostel your Mom wants you to stay at.
Sweet Dreams!
