The reception officer is so kind and helpful! The stay is OK as the room is clean and quiet! Free simple breakfast included too! I would suggest the change of bed linen always as it is a bit sticky and unclean. Overall, it is a good budget hostel !

We stayed here for almost a week in a double bedroom with shared bathroom. Very clean and organized. The manager, Nassim, is very nice and caring. He'll make sure you have a comfortable stay. Breakfast included (coffee and toasts) and access to the kitchen. Internet and wifi access. Towels provided. Great location! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you...

Nothing special, the rooms are more like cardboard boxes, But the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. For Kuala Lumpur it is supposedly good value, as the location is also very nice, right next-door to Chinatown.

We have just left after a 2 night stay and we were pretty glad to be checking out. Staff are friendly and pleasant, don't go over and above for you though. We were directed to the wrong bus station after showing which bus we had booked (luckily took our own advice instead). Room was so basic but value for money...

Arrived here after a night at a less than pleasant hostel in Bukit Bintang, and it was absolutely a breath of fresh air. Clean, friendly, and centrally located (walkable distance to the botanical gardens and right on the edge of the Chinatown market), Matahari Lodge is perfect for a budget traveler. Shout out to the staff who are always excited...

Very well placed, by Chinatown and the Central Market. Handy for all forms of public transport. It's clean and the security is good (high up on our list). The staff are very helpful. Breakfast is a help yourself affair to toast and tea or coffee. (The drinks are available throughout the day and are free.) The ac is a weird...
