I had a very nice stay in Lub D. The hostel has everything that you need as a backpacker. The number of internetterminals and the nice staff has to be highlighted.

I stayed in the Ladies Deluxe Dorm one night and the Double Deluxe another night. The dorm was good - had personal lights, beds, and a safe ( bring your own lock). However, the shared dorm toilet was a little messy with lots of toiletries strewn around. I was not a fan of that.

I moved to the room after my tour and really liked it. It was not really that cheap at THB 1700 (approximate) but I really enjoyed the bathroom, tv, space and coziness of the room. Furthermore the hostel had a good vibe and the location cannot be beat. Here's a tip, for breakfast try to buy coffee and toast/cullers from the street rather than the hostel cafe. The staff is friendly and speaks good English. My favourite feature of the hostel is the vibe and location. My recommended area of improvement would be the shared ladies toilet.

All in all I will stay here again if I am in Bangkok.

Thank you for your favorable review. We are pleased that you had a great stay with us.

Re: "the shared dorm toilet was a little messy with lots of toiletries strewn around", we thank you for pointing out this problem. This occasionally happens and we generally respond quickly to complaints. We’ve now provided a 'keep area' for toiletries that are still being used; those which left elsewhere will be tossed :-D

We hope it will not pose a problem for your next visit. Thanks for alerting us. We look forward to welcoming you again. Have a good journey :-D

I found the staff here exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are decent value, although other food is a bit expensive. You might pay a bit more than you would at Khao San Road etc, but Lub d is well-connected for the Skytrain (good for airport link) and shopping centres and it is very clean, safe/ secure and well-run.

This place was recommended to us by a friend and we were definitely glad we took their advice. We stayed here for 3 nights and will be staying here again on our next visit to Bangkok.

The location is great - right next to MBK and the Siam Paragon/Discovery/Center shopping malls. There are plenty of taxis and tuk tuks outside to take you to other locations like Khao San Road or Silom Road which aren't too far away (just depending on Bangkok traffic!). Plus you are right next to a stop on the Skytrain.

We stayed in a twin room. It was a cool layout, comfortable beds, containing a desk with chair plus an iPod dock/radio. There was a safe in the room too. There were separate male and female washing facilities and toilets on each floor. They were absolutely spotless, constantly being cleaned by the staff. They seemed to have a range of rooms - twin/double/dorms. The ground floor was for ladies only.

There were 8 computers available to use for the internet which was free of charge, plus free WIFI. There was a bar which sold food and drinks with plenty of seating and couches so you can just chill out. There was also a room with a TV and DVDs if you wanted to relax.

The staff were really friendly. They were always happy to help with any questions we had, recommended places to go and advised us on prices of taxi and tuk tuk journeys to ensure we weren't overcharged. Whilst we were there, it was my birthday and when I was sitting in the bar, they brought over a cake with candle and sang 'Happy Birthday' to me! I didn't even tell them it was my birthday but they noticed it on my passport. A really nice touch!

All in all, this hostel was definitely great value and I'm looking forward to staying there again on my next trip to Bangkok.

One of the reasons why I enjoyed my 6 days Thailand trip with my mother was because of our hostel, Lub D Siam. Square.

What I love about LUB D:
1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION - Lub D is located along the main road so no need to worry about walking into a dark alley when coming home at night. There is also a bus stop close to it. If ever you want to go to the Grand Palace or Khao San area, it is only 7 baht and a 10 minutes ride. Also, the National Stadium BTS is just steps away!

Don't worry about being hungry! There are cheap food around Lub D. In fact, one food stall is right beside Lub D offering a rice meal for only 30 baht! There is also a 7-11 for those who want some midnight snacks of ham and cheese. :D

But the biggest selling point is its proximity to malls. MBK and Siam Discovery is only around 5 minutes walk while Siam Square, Siam Paragon and Tesco Lotus is around 6-10 minutes walk. So if you are a shopaholic, then you can drop your bags off at the hostel, rest a bit and then shop again, hehe.

2. VERY CLEAN - Lub D only opened last year so you can see how new the facilities are. I really like how everytime we go back to the hostel after sightseeing, our room was spotless. Cleanliness is very important in choosing an accommodation and Lub D makes sure that their guests are comfortable. I also like how the toilet and shower are separated in the double deluxe room. :)

3. SAFE - Only hostel guests are allowed entry into the premises. A key card is used to enter the main entrance, the entrance to the accommodation area and of course, your own room.

4. MODERN DESIGN - Even though it is only a hostel, it does not look outdated. In fact, it looks modern and cool. I really like the colorful staircase railings and the outdoor patio. ^_^

I wanted to give the hostel 5 stars but to be fair, it does have its cons like there is no free breakfast, no elevator and being more expensive than the usual hostel. However, the pros outweigh the cons and if ever we have the chance to go back to Thailand again, then Lub D Siam Square is surely the place we will stay at! It is worth it especially for shopaholics! ^__^

Dear kaykay09,

Thanks a million for your enthusiastic response and a great review. We appreciate your taking the time to write and for sharing your review with us. We hardly stop smiling when reading your review and very happy to hear that you had a good time with us :).

Re no elevator, one of our concerns was energy consumption. However, if you need a hand, please feel free to ask one of us to help. We love to workout! :)

And for breakfast, since we think our guests might enjoy trying different things like a local, we don't include breakfast in the room rate. We have three sets of breakfast for you to choose, price ranges from 40 baht to 80 baht. The 80-baht one includes a croissant, 2 toasts, tea or coffee, orange juice, one hard-boil egg and a banana.

Thank you very much again for your great review and we look forward to welcoming you back :-D

We stayed at Lubd Siam for a week and I would recommend this hostel to all looking for very clean budget accommodations. We stayed in a twin room. The beds are comfortable, the ac works well and there is even a IPOD docking station with small speakers. The common bathrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are good laundry machines on the ground floor. There is a movie lounge room with huge lounge pillows and a small selection of DVDs. The internet is fast, both the terminals in the lobby, and the wireless thoughout the hostel. The escalator to the Sky Train is right outside the front door, so you can quickly get to all the tourist locations in Bangkok. There are several huge malls located across the street including MBK and the Paragon. The food centers in the mall are excellent and have every type of food imaginable. The movie theater at the Paragon mall is world class. The shopping options here are unlimited and right out the front door. You get a 10% discount at the Lek Massage center next door and they have a large facility and great staff and prices. I will definitely stay here again.
