Nice little place in Matsumoto to stay. Great, friendly staff that were very helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms and facilities are okay. Location is fine and within walking distance of the major sights, and very close to the train station.
Staff was super friendly, location was nice and easy. Dorm rooms were nice and there was a really friendly atmosphere.
The hostel was very cosy with comfy futons, clean facilities and a great atmosphere - the place felt very much like a home too. Also, a huge shout out to Brian who was a knowledgeable and a very helpful host, who made us okonomiyaki!
The hostel was really really close to the main station, clean and big room, nice common areas and friendly staff.
Nice place to stay at in Matsumoto, very close to the train station and also to the town's center. The owner is very friendly and helpful.
Such a nice little guesthouse. Met by extremely helpful staff. Really feel like you are staying in someone's house. Great location next to the river. Only downside is that because you are staying in a house, there are limited numbers of other people - but everyone is very friendly and easy to talk to! Would very much recommend.
Really nice owner. I enjoyed my short stay at your place!
Very good stay! Location is excellent!

Great little hostel in Matsumoto. The hotel is a Japanese style house converted into a hostel. You sleep on futons on the mat floor (they also put amazing hot water holders in the sheets to keep you warm at night). The main area (dining/eating space) is small but cozy. The owner is very helpful and knowledgable about places to eat in town as well as places to hike! The hostel also has tons of little notes on Japanese style, tradition and worlds. It is also super close to the JR station.
Wonderful stay and a wonderful host that likes to share time with the backpackers/travelers.

Extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Our host Brian was delightful to chat with and really puts his all into his work. Would definitely stay here again.
This place was great. Great hosts, traditional Japanese feel, and reasonably situated in Matsumoto. Recommended!
Brian was very welcoming and helpful with showing us where to go and what to see. He was very accommodating. The location was within walking distance to both the station and sight seeing.
It was a very friendly and cosy hostel. the owner was very helpful and accomodating to a change in plans will definitely reccomend to everyone
Great hostel. Quiet and small, with a very friendly and incredibly helpful staff. One of the nicest little places I've stayed in Japan.
