Castle view in the room”
I truly can't ask for any better location. Mastumoto castle is right out of the window, near to the station and easy to find with a big banner in front of the house.

Coldest place in Matsumoto in winter”
Don't understand why the staff was so cold, more than cool, much colder than frozen room in the room. Even they knew I was in front of the gate, they didn't move an inch to open it for me, instead just stayed in the cozy warm room 3 doors away. She was just a mother in the households than a host of the accommodation. One step inside the room, it was frozen. I worried if I might be dead to freeze in there. She just showed me a small fan heater etc. Din't give me any direction of facilities or amentieis etc. It might be because I am Japanese, not American with a big smile, Europena or Asian with humble smiles etc. Would never never visit there again in this life while I am Japanese.

Traditional house vibe”
Nice experience. Matsumoto castle can be seen from the window. Though I'm not used to the cold, even with heaters. The heaters keep you warm it just probably feels weird (to me) to be blasted by warm air.

Good Hostel with Very Nice Host”
Well, it's just a short one day stay for my visit to Kiso valley, as matsumoto is has more options in term of staying than other nearby small station near the valley. I chose the mixed dorm and shared with another Japanese guy there for work. It's pleasant experience. The hostel is quite cold, when they don't open the heater, so be mindful of that, but it's quite common for home stay to be like that. You might not enjoy the experience for shower and toilet, as it's quite cold. but for me, it's okay, as I am getting used to it, like I said, it's common. Hostel is clean, the host has very good English, and she has to waited for me till 10pm for the check-in. She doesn't stay in the hostel. I am very grateful for that. hostel is extremely close to the castle. so it's easier to visit. Overall, it's pleasant experience. Try to experience the coldness in Japan while you choose to travel in Winter season, whether you like it or not, it's part of the deal, so try to enjoy it.

great place”
Sooo close to the castle that you can go for some pictures at sunrise after going back to sleep or at night for an after dinner stroll but mind you the lights of the castle get turned off at 10pm ... so better take your pictures before ;) ... in general I liked the Japanese style accommodation ... could have used a more comfy.place to sit and chat though ;) ... and it was a bit weird to wake up and look into a strangers face ( meaning two Tatami mattresses in the female dorm is fine but three ... well that leaves about 5cm between the mattresses ... tooo close for my liking nevertheless I had a great time here and stayed longer than expected ;)

Staff makes it worthy”
Nice stay, including a staff friend japanese birthday celebration which all the guests enjoyed a lot. Its not a hostel but a small house where you will enjoy a true japanese stay. Location cant be better: just in front of the castle.

Location, location, location
The location is great. Staff not as friendly now as compared to when I visited last year. Cheapskate hostel; have to pay for coffee/tea (100¥!) and heater automatically set to turn off after half an hour. It was freezing; i left in the middle of the night to go to another hotel because it was so cold i couldnt sleeep! I went in november; i guess it will be a great place to stay in summer.
