I'd stayed at Lub*d a few months previously when first arriving in Bangkok. So I decided to book another stay there for my last night before flying home again back in December. Across all areas the hostel seemed to me to be very professionally run.
Experiencing Bangkok doesn't get any better than this, Lub d (meaning 'sleep well' in Thai) has its original location tucked away in Bangkok's culturally rich district of Silom. There you can take advantage of the convenience of the city's BTS Skytrain (Chong Nonsi Station), which is a 10 minute walk from the hostel. Those willing to explore will also find Lub d surrounded by an eclectic collection of shops, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. Check-in, leave your backpack, and set out exploring Bangkok.
Regarded as 'one of the 17 coolest hostels to hangout in the world...' (Guardian UK June 2008), Lub d has been a temporary home to travelers of all backgrounds. The sleekly designed hostel caters to traveler's necessities with complimentary high speed Wi-Fi, 24 hour reception, Free breakfast and versatile common areas such as the wide screen theater lounge and the Yellow Donut Bar.
Lub d offers both hostel and hotel style rooms to fit your needs (PLEASE NOTE, THERE IS NO ELEVATOR IN OUR 4-FLOOR FACILITY). Hostel lovers choose to take advantage of our economical mixed eight-bed or ladies-only dormitories. If you're traveling alone or with a friend and would like more privacy, we offer a railway twin room or double bed room where up to two people can stretch out comfortably.
Our 4 types of room are:
Lub d dormitory: The 'super clean' 8 beds dormitory that has more good things than what you're looking for.
Lub d Ladies' dormitory: The luxury 6 to 10 beds dormitory in a 'ladies-only' section that offers more space and a large shared bathroom hair iron, makeup mirror, person scale, body mist etc. designed for women.
Railway Twin Room: A new concept room type, It's a perfect choice for single traveler or traveler who come with their favorite 'buddy'. This room has a comfortable 1 bunk bed room with shared bathroom that gives privacy you need, together with Lub d's lifestyle.
Lub d Double Room: A queen-size bed room with bathroom en-suite. This is a well-designed room, a real break for those who seek something more than a regular room in a box.
The safety features of the hostel are also among the best in the business with 24hr reception, closed-circuit TV surveillance, and keycard access to rooms and common areas. Each floor of Lub d is equipped with smoke detectors, fire alarms, and fire extinguishers to prevent and respond to emergencies.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
I'd stayed at Lub*d a few months previously when first arriving in Bangkok. So I decided to book another stay there for my last night before flying home again back in December. Across all areas the hostel seemed to me to be very professionally run. The staff are helpful and most speak very good English, they were very busy but were always helpful and polite. The design and layout of the building very open and welcoming, its feels fresh and it kept very clean. I noticed a few small fixtures that needed fixing/replacing but these were minor. The dorms are large and have good security, only complaint was that the one i was in was quite dark as the main light was dim and at one end of the dorm. Though i guess this is good if you're the one asleep and someone gets in late and turns the light on. Each bunk had its own light and power point which was useful.
Some travellers may think the hostel is poorly located as its in the Silom area. While it is far from Khao San Rd and the main sight in that area of town, it is actually a very good location in my opinion. Its not far from Chinatown and the main train station which is just in walking distance. Best of all its an easy short walk to the closest skytrain station which then links you to a lot of Bangkok areas. I needed to get to the airport early one morning and this was very simple to achieve via the train network.
Theres loads of good shopping and eating around the area the hostel is in. My tip is to walk south out of Decho Rd on to Silom then turn right, walk along until you see the quite unique looking temple across on the left side of the road, turn right there down a street which has a lot of food stalls selling freshly cooked seafood. The food there was amazing and very well priced. About 50-80 baht for a really good pad thai, curry etc.
