Liked: Very clean, great a/c, and the beds were pretty comfortable by Thai standards. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The security lockers are large enough to fit your big pack pack another smaller one, so you can lock up all your things. The showers are clean with their own stalls (not combined with the toilet) and adjustable water temp. Pretty quiet and near the patong night market. Easy public transportation from BKK airport as well.

Disliked: The common area was a bit dreary so people didn't really hang out there. I only really met people that shared my dorm.

Liked: I really liked the Smile Society. Its a great place to explore Bangkok from a bit more quiet corner of the city, though everything is easily accessible by taxi or the closeby skytrain. The common room was great for socializing and meeting fellow travelers. The beds were soft in the dorm, quiet nights and great AC. The owner is really friendly and helpful with all kinds of problems.

Disliked: The front desk was empty quite often, which was inonvenient since new arrivals often had to wait some time before they could get some help with check-in or getting drinks.

Liked: Clean, secure and easy to get to.

Disliked: Thought it overrated on hostelbookers - very basic, not very homely (gloomy), the reception desk was often empty (we were unable to checkout properly as there was no one on the desk before 9:30 which meant I didn't get my key card deposit back).

Liked: It was close to the airport - about 30 minutes by taxi or an hour on the sky train, so it was perfect for a stop over before flying home. It's location is in the red light district, but there is a nice night market and other good bars and restaurants for people who want to avoid the sex scene. Staff were really helpful and place was very easy to find and secure.

Disliked: The beds were creaky and only blankets (not quilts) were provided, meaning it got a little cold with the air con on. The key card system also meant doors were noisy when people come in and out of the hostel
