An authentic, traditional hostel. Guests are provided with Japanese robes, a futon to sleep on and there is an onsen on site. Although the hostel was very difficult to find ( I had to ask a number of other people, the information centre did not know) it was worth the effort. It is up in the National Park, and near mountains, botanic gardens and many other areas of historic and religious interest.
The owner was very kind and friendly although he didn't speak much English, He really made us feel at home with his warm hospitality and the ambience of hostel definitely helped. My bf and I would like to relay our sincerest thanks to him for being such a wonderful host :). We were unable to do so on the last day of our stay as he was not at home then. We will certainly recommend our friends to visit his hostel if they visit Hakone.
Traditional japan resident house like what you will see can manga. Cool. The weather was cold but our room was cosy. Hot spring for male was small, 3 guys at a time and female hot spring at most 2 at a time. I HIGHLY recommend this place cause we have a big room. Due to location we didn't see much other guests there so Guess we were lucky having the hot spring to ourselves. Private. lol
I enjoyed my stay at Masuya Ryokan Sengokuhara Onsen. The value for money is excellent. I very much liked the natural onsen. There are two onsens in the ryoken, and you can reserve it for privacy, or simply lock the door. I used the onsens about 3-4 times over my stay and never had to share it with other guests. The room was sufficiant, with a small fridge, fresh hot water, a tea set, and a few small plates.

While Masuya Ryokan was a bit far from the main sites I'd hope to visit in Hakone, it was easy to hop a bus and get where I needed to go. The amenities were simple and sufficient, as expected for the price point. The owner speaks very limited English, but it's more Japanese than I speak (read: none), and certainly enough to cover the basics. Plus, the owner's kind and smiley all the time. Good overall stay for a budget inn in Hakone.
If you are looking for a cheap stay in an authentic ryokan I would recomend this one. The owner was very kind and friendly, although he spoke very poor English. The only thing was that the onsen was very small and not very nice, but the room was fine and authentic feeling.
brilliant with little onsen included. not too far off and with a seven-eleven around the corner. friendly staff that gives sweeties away;)
there was an additional charge for onsen, but i dont remember this being mentioned in the terms and conditions?

Very nice and peaceful place. Close to bus stop and information office. Pays to be able to speak a little Japanese as the manager does not speak English. But despite of the language barrier he is a very nice and helpful guy. When there for some days don't forget to buy the Hakone Freepass for 2 or 3 days for 5,000 or 5,500 Yen. Buy it in Odawara. It's worth ever cent...
