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 lobby is very comfortable, and internet connection there is strong.
What I don't like about it is you can't get a good internet connection in the dorm, and if you get the top bunk, you're screwed. It's so high up! So when you're getting a dorm bed, make sure to get the bottom bunk!
The room is windowless but unlike the other hostels I've been to, it doesn't bother me. Maybe because the bed is comfortable.
I would certainly use Matahari Lodge again next time I'm in town.
