4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here two nights...was a good budget option, good location, staff seemed nice, clean and safe. We found it hard to find but after a long flight and maybe it was us! After walking up the stairs we feared the worst but was greeted by friendly staff on the reception floor which was also the hangout/breakfast area. Room was clean.... More

This place is just amazing. The location is perfect.The service here is fantastic. If you ask one question you get multiple answers and options, they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. KL is an amazing metropolis of a city!

Separate rooms with air con for cheap. It is next to Chinatown and the LRT station and bus station. Lots of food nearby and staff is great. The rooms are quiet and no noise from street. No Windows so it is easy to sleep well. There is a nice TV area and lots of channels in English. There are also... More

Good place, friendly and helpfull staff, clean, reasonable price, easy to reach when you missed your flight at KLIA2 ;-)the lodge is close to the public transports, central market and petaling street (walking distance). You can get everything you need ;-) I stayed at Matahari 3 times and if I come back to KL, I would stay here again.

We spent a couple of nights here. It is in a great location, over the road from the train station (which you can catch to Batu Caves etc.), 2 minute walk to Central Market with food stalls, 2 minute walk to China town and 10 minute walk to the big bus terminal for when you are leaving KL. Clean, had... More

A friendly, homely B&B, well located near the bus and LRT stations and a 10 min walk from Little India. Nice and clean with a csy lounge area and kitchen and a pleasant outside terrace. Tea, coffee and free drinking water all day and unlimitted toast, jam and peanut butter until 12pm and a computer for guest use.

The Matahari Lodge doesnt look very nice from outside, but when you enter, the impression changes. Nice, clean rooms with aircondition for a very cheap price although its in KL. The common showers and toilets arent the best but they're okay. Breakfast is nice and included and the friendly stuff helps you to plan your journey wherever you want to... More

Malaysia, the 11th Asian country I traveled. After moving from a bad hostel to this Hostel, it felt like heaven. The concept with the air conditioning at the corridor and a fan connecting the corridor and the bedroom is really genius. I slept next to the fan but I felt comfortable cool in the whole room and there was silent... More

the good: compared to the place next door (which is carpeted in carpet, in the tropics!?) this place is clean and simple. the location is right next to the LRT station, one stop from KL Sentral. the bad: the rooms are cell-like but that's because it's so cheap. there's a room with a window that is nice but the traffic...
