This was our first time in Bangkok and our first time backpacking in SE Asia. We wanted to stay somewhere relatively inexpensive but without having to rough it so early in the trip! Lub d jumped out immediately from the positive reviews here and elsewhere and happily both fulfilled and surpassed our expectations.
Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the friendly staff who instantly made you feel at home. Our room (an 8 bed dorm) was comfortable and modern, with the added blessing of air con- a welcome addition when acclimatising to the Bangkok heat! The showers are excellent and the free wi fi is a great bonus. After our return from a long day out touring the temples, the bar and outside seating area were an ideal place to chill out with a beer and watch the world go by- one night we had the accompaniment of a member of staff strumming a guitar- extremely pleasant. Though we didn't get chance to take part, there were lots of things organised by the hostel during the week such as a walking tour of the area and a trip to a night club which would be ideal for a lone traveller looking to make friends. Location wise though your not exactly in the thick of things in Silom, close proximity to the sky train station at Chong Nonsi means your easily within distance of the main attractions. Pat pong is a short walk away if that's your cup of tea!
Overall, we were extremely impressed with lub d, and they've set the bar pretty high for the rest of our trip! We'll be heading back through Bangkok in a few months and we'll definitely stay again.
