The really fluffy down comforters! So cozy.
Comfortable bed Great staff Bicycle rides where fun
No place to store our stuff except for luggage
great location right next to the castle, great kitchen, nice small hostel with big chance of people being considerate of each other, great information in the living room with tips on where to go, comfy common area for exchanging stories with fellow travellers, great english speaking host (take) , free bikes too ! Dorm room is 6 then there are three private rooms, one close to the kitchen with two single beds, there you can be unlucky if guests are noisy late at night or early morning ...
cant think of anything
- close to Matsumoto Castle - very clean, nice tatami-style guesthouse
- we had problem with turning on the hot water - so we had no other choice than to wash ourselves in cold one
The hostel is located right next to the castle. From the station it's a 15min walk so really close. The free hot chocolate and oat meal is quite nice! Comfy beds!
