If you're looking for a pitstop while making the walk up to Siam central in Bangkok, check out Lub.d, a friendly backpackers hostel with an outside courtyard looking out to the street where you can try and make sense of how on earth traffic works in Bangkok!

They have cheap beer - 75 baht for a Singha - which works out at around $2.80 AUD or $2.10 USD, plus fast wifi & internet kiosks if you need to get connected.
