Lud d is a very popular hostel in Bangkok. The reason for their popularity can be easily identified.
- – Clean rooms
- – Modern design
- – Central location
- – Fun!
They have 2 locations, Silom and Siam Square. This review is on Lub d Siam Square.
I was here during the Halloween. As you can see, they have decorated the reception area and it totally feels casual and fun!
As seen from the directory, there are 5 room types at Lub d Siam Square.
- Deluxe Dorm (Mixed)
- Ladies Deluxe Dorm (Ladies only)
- Econo Twin (Private Room)
- Econo Double (Private Room)
- Double Deluxe (Private Room + TV + Private bathroom)
I happened to stay at the highest level since Econo Double is on the top. Do note that there are no lifts in Lub d and hence you will have to climb the flight of stairs. Good exercise after all the street food!
A bright orange room with polished concrete floorings and walls. This is not a hotel so don’t expect high quality beds, but this bed is in fact good enough for a comfortable sleep. The pillows are soft pillows too. A safe deposit is located under the bed for your to store your important items.
A simple working table with an iPod Dock for you to listen to your music. Free WIFI is provided throughout the property and you can enjoy it anywhere at your comfort.
At Lub d Siam Square, everyone uses shared bathrooms except for those staying in Double Deluxe. It even comes with dryer too. But no worries, because it is so clean, even cleaner than toilets in shopping centres as they clean it frequently. At Lub d, they put a high emphasis on cleanliness.
You can even sit and relax at the balcony!
If you want to just chill out under air conditioning, you can head on down to the lobby, where the activities are!
Use the workstations to do your research on where to go next, if you do not have a laptop or iPad with you.
At Lub d, they have several interesting activities ongoing frequently, so check out with them when you are there.
Need some tour guidance, seek help from the tour desk. They will be glad to assist you.
Feeling lazy and don’t feel like going out, you can hang out in the theatre room and enjoy the sand bags.
Some dispensers for Sanitary Pad, Condom and Washing Powder.
You can even do your own laundry here without having to pay hefty prices at some laundry shops.
The courtyard is another place to hangout with your friends!
The is the place to be at night. It’s so happening and there are many tourists here just chilling out over a cup of coffee or glass of beer.
There are also many “freebies” provided by the hotel:
- – Complimentary coffee, tea & hot chocolate (2pm to 2am)
- – Popcorn in the evening
- – Shower and internet after check-out
- – Luggage storage (up to 2 months)
Located in a very good location, close to Siam. Friendly atmosphere, clean rooms and facilities. 7 eleven is just beside.
Not much street food outside the hotel, got to walk about 10 mintes to Siam area to get food.
A pleasant stay with comfortable rooms and beds. It’s like a high-end hostel. The only disadvantage is the lack of lifts if you stay at the highest level. But it is understandable, this is not a hotel.
