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...

I've been staying here a couple of times now and I think it is the best value you can get for the money in KL. Everything is easy and convenient, the rooms are tidy and safe and the location is just perfect with Chinatown right next door and the connecting train- and bus-stations in front of the house. Also a... More

The place is clean, confortable, with good atmosphere, nice staff, well located, simple but good breakfast (free) and has a excelent internet on the reception. Besides that, the wifi doesn't work on the bedroom.

Matahari Lodge is strategically located at the city centre, Petaling Street. It is easy for travellers who go on foot to visit the landmarks in the city and to try a variety of foods around that area. The LRT station (Pasar Seni) and the bus hub are just a stone's throw away from the guesthouse. This is my second visit... 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

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 :) .
