PHUKET: Lub d Phuket Patong is a new hostel set to open on July 19 with the aim of attracting modern-day backpackers who are looking for a laid back, affordable and convenient travel experience.
Although the concept is a relatively new one for Patong accommodation, it is the latest in a line of similar successful hostels in Bangkok: Lub d Silom Bangkok and Lub d Siam Bangkok.
“Our target market is the kind of travellers who want to make new friends and prefer a laid back hostel to stay at, and enjoy their time in, as well as nearby attractions outside the hostel,” said Lub d’s Assistant Experience Manager Tannapas Thanakijrujiroj.
Located on Sawatdirak Road in Patong, the hostel’s exterior design is Sino-Portugese, mixed with a hint of a beach resort influence on the inside.
A total of 187 rooms on 5 floors includes a unique ladies-only dormitory.
There are three types of rooms available: junior and dormitory rooms, each with a floor area of 18 square meters, and some 25sqm deluxe rooms.
The hostel’s communal facilities include a tour desk with travel information services; a Muay Thai gym; a co-working space; a large communal swimming pool; wifi; parking space; and a long-term storage facility for left luggage.
Ms Tannapas said the company plans to expand across Asia with new hostels in Cambodia and the Philippines next year.
