The main objective of our visit in Silom was to visit Sky Bar so Lub D was perfectly situated for that. This was our last stop before the airport so being so close to the Skytrain was ideal especially because we needed to travel during rush hour and no taxi drivers would take us! Lub D is also a short stretch from Patpong night market which is a must see but if you've been to Khao San Road or Bangla Road it will feel very familiar! If it weren't for Sky Bar however, I probably wouldn't have stayed in this area at all though.
Within Lub D itself, there was a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Although I had a travel partner, it would've been easy enough to make new friends in the dorms had we been travelling alone. The room did smell a bit stale but that was the only minor fault.We chose to stay in the Railay twin (cheaper than a double room) which was simple but did the job! I was however very impressed with the shared bathrooms which were spacious and very clean with power showers!
Considering it was a hostel I did feel that it was more expensive than I'd expected as we could have stayed in a guesthouse or hotel with an ensuite bathroom for less. Downstairs we were grateful to have access to the computers and printer to print off our flight information. The downstairs lounge area was a perfect place to meet people and we had to use our key cards to access the dormitories thus showing the importance of safety at Lub D. It was also good to know that even after checking out we could still store our bags and grab a shower until it was time to go. During my whole stay in SE Asia I can honestly say that hands down, the staff here were the most friendly and helpful, giving us advice on taxis, restaurants, the way to the airport, how to get to a meditation class etc.
