I've stayed at Bed Station a few times now and I not only love to see them continue in their success and popularity but that their standards have not faltered. The staff is always a very welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The facilities are always very clean and stylish. They always have plenty of activities of which a ping pong table has been added since I was last there. And you really can't beat the location being so close to the BTS station and the airport link.
I really enjoyed my stay at Mini Boxtel and enjoy its airy design. The breakfast is basic like most hostels and they also provide free filtered water which is a nice touch considering bottled water is a lot more expensive in the touristy areas. Beds are comfortable with curtains, however, the rooms are quite bright. The windows and curtains are opened at 8:30am letting in the street noise. Bring an eye mask, ear plugs, and a sarong to hang on top of your curtain darken and quiet your pod.
I absolutely loved it here! The facilities are clean, well-designed, well-thought out, close to everything in Georgetown and the hawker food, bars and restaurants, street art, etc. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Beds are the most comfortable in a hostel that I've ever slept in. I read reviews about an odor from the AC and I experienced none of that. Breakfast was fine with a variety of breads, jam, coffee, tea, fruit. Will definitely stay here again!!
I've always enjoyed staying at the Lub D hostels. There are some things to note though during this time while the protests are happening. This location is directly across from where the protesters sleep and where the streets are blocked off. Overall it was safe. Should you want to arrive by taxi, it is highly unlikely that the taxi will be able to make it there as the road is blocked off. Also, my room was particularly mildewy this time which that combined with AC, got me sick.
I've stayed at many hostels in BKK and this by far is one of the best if not the best I've stayed in. Great design, great location in the city, super easy and close access to the BTS and Airport links in all of BKK, the staff are very friend Lyon and helpful, the place actually smells nice compared to many hostels, it's not a party atmosphere, and it's tucked away in a quiet street. Only two downsides I can think of: no breakfast available and not many restaurants in the area.
Had a great time there. A very new and clean hostel with a great atmosphere and communal areas with a nice lounge area that includes big couches, fireplace, games, movie room, balcony, etc. Noise on the backside where the bars are at night can be a tad noisy so I would suggest getting a room on either the front or top floor or even get earplugs that the reception will give to you for free. All in all, a great stay and would definitely go back there again!
