When I travel, I usually put a premium as to where I will stay. It needs to be in the center of everything, easily accessible, and clean. Of course being affordable is one of the key things that I need also. At LUB D, I think everything that I want and need is accounted for.
LUB D is actually a hostel chain that comes from Thailand. It's known as a backpackers' paradise but is also quite quirky and perfect for family and couples alike.
Just opened a few weeks ago, LUB D in MAKATI has an impressive and clean atmosphere. The second floor is filled with surprises. Aside from the usual amenities that you would see at different hostels, they have a number of unique things that would entice you to visit. They have a lot of board games, a couple of arcade fixtures, and even a pool table.
Visitors could indulge in unlimited popcorn while relaxing at their movie studio. I could already see myself just relaxing their and watching a nice movie.
There are 3 room categories that would cater to your needs. They have a single room that would work for couples of travelers. If you're a big group or a family, they have a room that could be configured to 3 or 4 beds. A queen sized on the first floor and a couple more up top.
The private rooms have their own amenities such as a tea and coffee making facility, cable tv, and a private washroom.
The washroom is clean and complete. It is equipped with a soap and shampoo dispenser. Bidet is also attached to the toilet.
For backpackers, they have rooms that could accommodate 8 persons. Each one has their own curtain for their privacy, lamp, socket, and a locker for your valuables. Unlike other hostels, their mattresses are thick and their pillows are comfortable. There is a mixed type room and some just for women.
Food is pretty good because they partnered with Chef Nicco and Chef Quenee of Hey Handsome fame. As such, the dishes are simple but packs great flavor.
To be honest, the dishes they brought out were simple but delicious. They even had grilled cheese and pasta to make things better.

In a few more weeks, LUB D MAKATI would open up their roof top bar to the public. I can't wait to check it out and enjoy the view. Visitors and guests could use their parking facilities. Plus, you could also check out the different food establishments in the area. It's just a stone throw away from the night life Poblacion has to offer.
