Very nice cosy hostel. Lots of care into details — freee hot water bottles, toothbrush, etc. Staff are nice and helpful. Good tips for places to eat. Good atmosphere. Lights out at 11 really means lights out. Which means there is a cue if people brushing teeth etc at 10:55. Not enough showers. Expensive hostel but a really nice stay. About ten minute walk (brisk) to Matsumoto station and 5 to Kira-Matsumoto. Castle 5 minutes. 7-11 3 minutes.

Nice guesthouse near Mastumoto Castle
Staff was really kind and their advice was so helpful. The facility is clean and well-organized. If I revisit Mastumoto, this place will be the first candidate.

Excellent choice for over night stay
Great location right next to Matsumoto Castle. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff who can speak English. Parking about 5 mins walk from the Guesthouse. If you are a light sleeper like me, bring ear plugs.

とても快適に過ごせました。 ドリンクや朝食があるのと同時に、無料のアメニティが置いてあるのも有り難かったです。 スタッフの方もフレンドリーで、観光の相談にも乗ってくれてとても参考になりましました。 松本を訪れた際にはまた宿泊したいと思います。 今度は家族でも来たいです。
