Great to,Return !

Location Staff Friendliness Value for Money
This was my third or fourth stay at Matahari Lodge, The location --just across from Pasar Seni train stop, two stops from KL Sentral, doors away from a 7-11, down the block from two Indian restos, and a short walk to Central Market and Chinatown --that's just Great !! The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There was a leak from the ceiling, and I was moved into another room, in less than five minutes ! When I needed a'ride at 3am, the staff came downstairs, got a taxi, and made sure the rate to the KLIA2 buses at KlSentral was only MR 15, even tho it was wayyyy early ! The breakfast is typical: white bread (toast), margarine, PNB, and jelly -- with 24hr drinking water, tea, coffee available. I recommend Matahari Lodge to other budget travelers, and will definitely stay there again, when in Kl. Thank You !

It was overpriced.

location and Informative staff
It was in a convenient location. I feel the price a bit on the higher side for what you get.

Good location and clean. Too hot to sleep.

Coffee balcony and location.
Our stay was fine, the staff helped when they were asked but I felt like I was interrupting them at times as if it was their private living room or something. But they were friendly enough. There's good coffee for breakfast and peanut butter and blueberry jam. The place is clean too. We paid for an air conditioned room but only had a fan. It was too hot to sleep and we left early because of this. We did not raise the issue with staff though so can't say if it could have been resolved unfortunately. A lot of the public areas often went un air conditioned too despite the units being there. All in all we wouldn't stay again, we found a place a bit further away for about 10MR more that had 2 windows and better public areas with working air con.

Clean and secure

Good security, 24 hour tea and coffee, and very friendly
Helpful staff, thoughtful and caring. Rooms were without windows which suits us. A/c is via the corridor so not 100% effective but we found it adequate to the task. Great location, next to the Cenral Market, Chinatown and hand for all the transport systems. Good value

WiFi problem and socket problem :(

Location, breakfast, ...
This is my third time here, in the first floor (past two was third floor, near the reception). Breakfast is good as usual, but too bad WiFi in this floor was not working, and the socket in my room had problem. No hand soap in this floor. basin at the back is blocked.

Very good, but...

Internet, location, facilities
PRO: Breakfast is good, Internet is very fast, location is excellent (opposite LRT Pasar Seni), towel provided for each room, toilet roll in each toilet, hand soap in the kitchen. CON: one shower is too weak, I think each toilet should have their own hand soap, room floor a bit oily

Excellent value for money!

Great location, comfortable, friendly staff
Would highly recommend this hostel - zero complaints! Staff were really accommodating and helpful. I had a double room with city view which was very comfortable and clean. Bathrooms and power showers also clean. Excellent location: right next to Kuala Lumpur Station, central market, and Chinatown. Jam and peanut butter at breakfast nicer than any other hostel I've stayed in in Malaysia. Only wish I had been able to stay longer!
