This hostel has to quite honestly be the best hostel in the world. I stayed for 2 nights when I arrived in Bangkok to be greeted so happily by the staff who showed me to my 6 bed female dorm. I loved the extra touches such as, shampoo and body wash in the showers, hair dryers, straighteners, spare hair ties and hair clips etc. The vibe is also awesome with a real fun spirit running throughout the place.
I returned to lub d for one night on a journey to koh phangan when I unfortunately ended up feeling really unwell. I am travelling alone so I become very frightened and quite honestly in a state of panic. I had completed a jungle trek in Chiang Mai 2 days before which was a malaria zone and despite taking the necessary medication the worry set in that I could have malaria.
As soon as I told the staff at lub d they helped me contact the travel insurance company to enquire which hospital I could go to and then sent Bon a guy from their team with me to translate. We took the sky train to get past the crazy Bangkok traffic and attended the hospital who had us there for over 3 hours. It was window to window in the hospital from the triage desk to the registration desk, to the nurses station, to the bill paying station, to the waiting room and the list goes on. If Bon were not there I don't know how I would have managed as the English in this hospital is very poor. I had various tests which included a blood test and luckily for me they concluded no malaria and just a fever. I was sent back to lub d with a prescription and advice that I potentially could not fly to Surat Thani in the morning. Bon was amazing again as he helped me phone air Asia to discuss rearranging the flight. The hostel gave Bon money to pay for transport to the hospital and back and upgraded me with no extra charge to a private room. The most awesome room. They had an omelette for me to eat and offered so much empathy and good wishes to get well soon. I cannot put in to words how grateful I am to Bon and the staff at lub d for helping me so much. I can't wait to come back in better health at the end of August to see them all again. Thank you very much. I am forever indebted to you for your kindness xxx
