The original intention was to stay at entertainment district aka "red light district" as close as possible because the original plan was to end the trip with a bang.We wanted to watch the "notorious shows" in Pat Pong ----only that we ended up buying "pasalubong" rather than drown in booze and enjoy some wild entertainment.lol

The iconic, trend-setting "original Lub d" is still a"Bangkok must" for travelers in the know. With a downtown location conveniently situated in Silom, Bangkok's business district, Lub d - Silom is surrounded by a plethora of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. Silom buzzes from early morning until late night. Travelers are connected via the nearby BTS skytrain and the pier for boat rides.
Be greeted by an elephant's butt when you enter the hotel.It's not a real elephant so feel free to stuck your head in its hole if you want. haha
The main lobby is nice.It's large so there's enough room for guest to hang out whether on the soft couches on the sides or at the high table (with high chairs) at the center, and to accommodate incoming guests.Its dim lights are strategically located to emphasize key details of the lobby.A bar on one side and a pc corner on the other.This is where travelers converge and socialize.
This is a feel good place. Looks clean. Feels Fresh.
And for the first time, we finally found local people who can communicate effectively in English. The ones who assisted our check in at that time were young and hip.New breed of Thais I suppose.
You will be given a tag upon check in which you will strap on your bed and one key card each which you should bring with you all the time coz the glass door leading to the staircase going to the rooms from 2nd level up is to be electronically unlocked each time.

In this room type, there are four (4) bunk beds that you have to share with other travellers. There were five (5) of us we there were three other people in the room.Strangers who we haven't even have the time to talk to.This kind is of accommodation is perfect for solo backpackers who travel long term.Not only that it is cheap, you get the chance to meet many exciting people should you be open for temporary travel buddies.Similar feel with MNL Boutique Hostel except that this one is more chick and 10x grander.
Restroom is common/shared but there are enough cubicles to cater for guests.I even find the restrooms spacious.Classy design for a budget accommodation.Power shower.Hot and Cold.Liquid soap and shampoo available.Hair dryer and I think I noticed a washing machine too.Really nice.
Gladly, the flea market was still open and we shopped for a few souvenirs and shirts for pasalubong.
PS: Lub d Bangkok has another branch in Siam Square which I think is a good option if you want to be at the center of everything.
