We stayed in a double room with window at Matahari Lodge and we had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was basic yet decorated tastefully and spacious, however I am aware that some of the other rooms are a little cramped (just make sure you request a double room at the front of the building!).
All rooms have shared bathrooms which are kept very clean and have hot water. The reception is on the 3rd floor along with a mini kitchen where a free basic breakfast of toast and jam/peanut butter is served, and free tea and coffee is available all day. There are also three computers and a lounge area with a television.
The rooms all have plenty of air-con which help to keep you cool in the hot climate. The staff here are also very friendly and willing to go out of their way to help guests with any questions they may have.
The hostel is in a central location in china town and only a 5 minute walk from the pasar seni MRT. This is the place to stay if you are looking for cheap eats nearby as there are plenty of street stalls on your doorstep.
