    Had a fantastic stay at Tabi-Shiro. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, always asking if there was anything they do to help. There is a really relaxed vibe to the place, would highly recommend to anyone planning to stay in Matsumoto.

    This is a great hostel. I stayed in the spacious female dormitory, used the large kitchen and had a drink with a local Japanese friend in the cosy bar. I particularly liked its ‘retro’ style and the staff were very helpful. I would love to return for longer.

    I had a great time at Tabi Shiro! It’s a very clean hostel in a convenient location. They have a very good breakfast and the hostel is very cozy. However, the best part about the hostel are the people working there. Everyone I met was very kind and helpful, and really made the hostel feel more welcoming. They are knowledgeable about Matsumoto and are happy to give recommendations. This is probably one of the best hostels I stayed in while in Japan!

    Can't fault this place. Only wish I could've stayed longer and gotten to know the young couple who hosts better. Everything you need, super comfy beds, a bar, kitchen, lounge area, warm fire etc. Only a short walk to the castle too.

    This is definitely the nicest, but also the most expensive hostel I've ever stayed in. If you can afford the price, the this hostel is amazing. At the same time rustic-cozy and chic, with super comfy dormitory and everything you might need both in kitchen and in the bathroom, a free drink in the bar in the wonderfully atmospheric common room. I highly recommend this place! The private rooms seem to have a better value than the dorms.
