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, 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 HOSTEL). 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 mixed 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 designed for women.
Railway Twin Room: A new concept room type, It's a perfect choice for single traveler or traveler who comes with their favorite 'buddy'. This room has a comfortable 1 bunk bed room that gives privacy you need, together with shared bathroom showing 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 privacy and something more than a regular room in a box.
The safety features of the hostel are also among the best in the business with 24-hour reception, closed-circuit TV surveillance, and keycard access to residential area and rooms. Each floor of Lub d is equipped with smoke detectors, fire alarms, and fire extinguishers to prevent and respond to emergencies.
What travellers think
This hostel is just really nice. The staff go out their way to help in anyway they can. They'll chat you up and are just very friendly. You need to fix the booking site for this hostel though. They clearly write that they have an all female form but you can't book it. That caused me and the hostel staff some frustration. I'm sorry but mixed dorms always smell like dirty gyms because of the guys. I finally got into the female dorm and it was awesome!

This is downtown & it's a nice area but it's a bit far from major sights if proximity is an issue. Not too far from Silom is a port for the boats down the river at Saphan Taksin which let's you see more of Bangkok & gives fast access to Old Bangkok.
