This was my second stay at Matahari Lodge, and I am glad I returned. I was recognised and remember by staff as well as long-term lodgers... if felt god to be there. The rooms are CLEAN, the size is OK, there are no windows, so it supports a good sleep. The Breakfast is traditional Malay for guesthouses: bread (toast), Planta... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights, the room was a good size although the walls were thin. There was either a patron or staff member who would watch their laptop quite loudly most of the time which was a slight pain. Shared computers in the reception were a bit of a commodity with people staying on them for hours.... More

The location – The 3-storey lodge is conveniently located near the Central Market (your shopping destination for cheap and local finds), Chinatown and Pasar Seni train station – which is one station away from Kuala Lumpur (KL) Sentral railway station that provides the fastest and most convenient way to connect to other parts of the country. This one is an... More

Nice place to stay and not far from the train station (pasar seni). The room was clean and tidy, unfortunately I was disturbed by the people from the street (I was stayed in the front room) who were always shouting and keep talking all night long; and I believe it wasn't the fault of this lodge :) .

Matahari lodge is only one stop from the KL Sentral where the airport bus drops you, then less than a minute walk to the hostel. It's also right next to central market and behind china town so such a good location. Rooms are big and very clean. They are well aircon'd through the hall ways and into the rooms. The... More

I stayed at the matahari lodge for about 3 weeks whilst doing a medical internship for which we needed a quiet and clean hostel. The hostel provided all of this and more. It has a great location (literally next to the bus and metro station in china town), is really cheap and has great staff. You get free tea and... More

The staff were very friendly and the hostel overall was definitely worth the it. It was very cheap and in a prime location near the free bus and chinatown markets. The internet was hard to get signal in some parts of the hostel but overall it was fine in the main common areas. Everything was pretty clean, including the showers... More

I think it's hard to judge KL accommodation, because I suspect it has two sides; gorgeous resorts and expensive hotels OR cheap cramped hostels. Matahari Lodge is a cheap crammed hostel you can easily miss when you're walking down the street. In all the hostels I've stayed at it was one of the least pleasant, but in saying that there...
