first rate, lived up to previous reviews, easy to find and well situated. It is basic no on suite bedrooms and the breakfast is limited to toast with butter and jam or peanut butter. On my trip to Australia I stayed here three times, on the way out for a two night stopover and on my return as my flight... More

Free GOKL buses start just in front of the hostel - very friendly staff, always helpful, always available - very, very clean. Rooms,... More

Had a room with a double bed. Room did not have a window, which always makes us feel a bit trapped, but they have a nice lounge area where you can sit and watch tv, read etc. Room could have been cleaner as there was a lot of dust on the floor, but other than that everything was fine. Nice... More

I'm very happy I found Matahari Lodge. I now have a place to go back to every time I'm in Kuala Lumpur. The best thing about it is, of course, the location. Very near Pudu Raya and the station. The staff is also very nice and helpful, and they provide free coffee and tea, and free use of towels. The... More

Situated near Pasar Peni station and Chinatown, so perfect to visit the centre of Kuala Lumpur and to enjoy the markets and street food. Room was clean (there was no windows but it didn't bother me) and staff are very friendly.

This area is almost China town and even still walk distance to Bukit Bintan area. This place is really clean and they change bed linens and blankets for every check... More

The man at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful. The shared bathroom was clean but the water was quite cold! There is a really cool social area, with comfy sofas, computers and a TV. Breakfast was also nice. The location was good - just a few minutes walk from Chinatown. The only negatives were that our room didn't... More

First thing to mention is the location, it's fantastic! Right next to an LRT station so it's easy to get to and easy to get to places from. It's also right in Chinatown (a stone's throw from the Central Market) so there's plenty of places to eat, shop and explore! The rooms are the definition of basic - they don't... More
