Lub d is an incredibly well run hostel. The facilities are absolutely state of the art: keycards & sensors, super modern & clean bathrooms, great rooms, well furnished common area. It's absolutely top notch! It's probably the nicest hostel I've stayed in (out of the 10 or so counties I've visited in my travels). The price for the private room was slightly expensive, but well worth the price. Atmosphere was generally nice and staff was helpful and polite.
This hostel was perfect for our stay in Phuket. First of all, the owners (2 brothers) are super cool and incredibly helpful! They really went out of their way to make our stay a great one. It's a small-ish hostel slightly removed from the main Patong beach strip. Great, since it's a lot quieter and away from the madness, but everything was still within walking distance. Atmosphere was super friendly & we made friends with other travelers. Highly recommended! -JP
