The Hostelz.com Review

Lub d Bangkok - Silom is one of the better hostels to stay at while in Bangkok. It is clean, well located, and a good choice for both solo and group travelers.

The Location

The hostel is located not very far from the Chong Nonsi BTS station, and is thus easily and cheaply accessible from the Suvarnabhumi (BKK) airport. The Don Mueang airport or the Northern Bus terminal are accessible by a combination of public transportation and cab, or cab only.

The hostel is located in a nice area of Silom, which has several restaurants nearby. It is not, however, located near either Khaosan Road, or the Grand Palace, and the malls are a good distance away as well. All of the above are accessible by public transportation -- #15 bus for the former, and the BTS for the latter.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are clean and well maintained. The bunk beds are sturdy and there is a light and outlet for each. There is also a locker for each guest, but the padlocks are not provided. There is also a couch in the dorm rooms as well as two long mirrors. There is ample space in the rooms for guests to all be in at the same time and move about. The air conditioning is activated by your access card, so it doesn't run needlessly when nobody is in the room.

The bathrooms have many showers, as well as toilets, sinks, and mirrors. They are kept very clean and look very new. There is enough space in the shower stalls to store your clothes without getting them wet.

Common Spaces

There is a common space on the ground floor, which includes a small bar, a computer area, and a few tables and chairs. There are also a few tables and chairs outside. The common area is not very large, so people don't usually spend too much time there just hanging out. It is, however, a social hostel, and it is possible to meet people. The staff are also engaging, and encouraging guests to participate in nights out or other activities.

Summary

This is neither a cheap hostel, nor is it located in one of the very popular areas of the city; we would, however, recommend it to anybody, including solo or group travelers. It is clean and social enough to make your stay in Bangkok very pleasant.

Ok hostel but not for a good rest.
Booked some nights at this hostel upfront but next time won't stay here anymore. Supposed to be quiet after 10. However this is a fairytale. Lots of noise till late at night. Couldnt sleep at all. So if you like to sleep do not go here. For the rest the location is good and people are friendly.
