This is the most convenient and amazing backpacker hostel in Central Market area.
No bed bugs, friendly staffs and strategic location!
Very disappointed! Yet the lobby is so noisy
The staff at check-in counter don't stand by for 24 hours -- do you should not arrive late night. The location is so close with Texas Chicken and Pasar Seni.
Nice room and clean. Good meal 24 hours.
Not bad. Strategic place for transit.
Quality of service in accordance with the price
Friendly service and a clean and strategic
Suitable for backpackers that need a room just to sleep. The location is very close to Pasar Seni LRT, 7 Eleven, Bus Stop sitting in front of the hotel. The friendly receptionist can be Indonesian, simple breakfast (bread), coffee and tea are available 24 hours. a bathroom with a hot shower, the bathroom is quite clean, the air conditioner in the front hall room, a single room large enough size for yourself, do not require a deposit. Less clean bed sheets and it is time to be replaced. Looks faded and many stains, towels are worn, plugs in the room did not work, so use in the corridor outside the room. In the room there is no air conditioning, use fans Inhaust fan that sucks the air from outside into the room, no window (single room), the room lights dimmed .. yaa..cocok for backpacker who did not want to stay at dormitori
Pengurusnya ramah, welcome banget. Saya check-in jam 12 malam. Pelayanannya baik. Sarapan cukup walaupun roti doang.

Stay away from this place + bed bugs and they don't care
We booked this "hotel" 5 days in advance. We arrived and the place was overbooked. They didn't have our room. After 10' of discussion, we discovered that they had 2 single rooms and we had to insist that they should have given them to us, at the same price. They didn't bother to send us an email to tell us about the overbooking. They don't care. - the room is like a prison. No windows, always dark, a bed on the floor, that's all. - toilets always wet, and always without toilet paper. - it's impossible to sleep since the walls are made of paper, and when someone close the door it's like having an earthquake right in front of you. - Bedbugs on the sofa at the reception. The staff didn't warn me, it was another guy that told me not to sit there. The same with another girl, she sat down and the staff was laughing. I had to tell her not to sit there! - breakfast included? It's ridiculous! The breakfast was a couple of old slices of bread thrown on the dirty table, a piece of butter, and a jar of jam with some spoon inside. Everything open on the table of course. the place is dirty, we had to go out for breakfast even if we already paid for it. - the staff simply don't care. It's the worst place I've seen in 5 months in Asia!

Needed a place to stay for a couple of nights around new year. Had to stay there since most places were full. Can't really say I'm convinced about the place. Building is nothing special, cleanliness is ok, staff ok, prince decent but room really really nothing special. Didn't have a bad stay but I'm sure you can find better value somewhere else.

Good and cheap Chinatown option
Arrived 4 nights ago and another 5 nights to go. Prices vary; dorm 18myr a night; I decided on a single room just to catch up on sleep after taking 2 days to get here... and I'm quite happy to stay in that room...... 35myr a night. All rooms are shared bathrooms; covered over three floors with the reception and communal area being on the third floor. There's an elevator to save your legs on the stairs if needed. Make your own toast and coffee/tea for breakfast. Jam/spread and butter supplied. Communal fridge also..... Smoking terrace if needed. For the price and being very central you can't complain about anything; the basics are here. Clean bedding and areas. Bathrooms are hot water showers. Location is great; Pasar Seni bus terminal has the purple line bus route to Bukit Bintang (free GoKL bus; coloured pink)... leave every 5 minutes.and takesm10 minutes to get to Bukit Bintang. From.Bukit Bintang you can alight the purple route bus and wait.for another GoKL bus to take you up to twin towers... the information on the reception are Wil give more information. 5 minute Walk will get you to Merdeka Square and then onto the botanical gardens parks and museums walking route...they say 5 hours to.walk around that area... Overall, I'm happy being here at Matahari. The lad who manages the place right now is great. Easy to recommend anyone to stay here... right on the doorstep of chinatown.

Decent place to sleep
Basic but clean rooms without windows with fan from corridor but it's cool place and temperature in room is good. Great localization. In my opinion the best area for staying in KL if you want to see the most attractive for tourist places in this city. It's close to city gardens and close to highest towers in centre. Great transportation from airport (stops close to guesthouse) by train (very expensive) or bus KLIA-KL (very cheap, some slower than train, depends on traffic 30min-1h longer way - but few times cheaper than train).

Unfriendly staff
We were really disappointed here. First, the staff is partying every day until 2 am. Second, the price for the room kept changing, even though on Agoda booking the room was cheaper, they said it was a wrong price, that we cannot make booking and we have to pay 10 RM more then the price on booking. First he says that is because it's weekend, then on monday he makes up there is a holiday, an event, but he doesn't know the name or anything about it. Third, the AC room is does not actually have AC, just the corridor has 1 ac, and then the cold air goes into the room through the fan. It's not really good enough. Fourth, the staff is unkind and even sarcastic. When I asked if the coffee and tea is only in the morning, or is avaliable all day, he replied: "do you also want a shampaigne and 2 glasses?" I do not recommend this hotel because of the unfriendly staff and non stop changing the price and making stuff up.
