Very charming house
The guest houses in Japan are really good so there's a lot to live up to but this place is one of the best I've stayed in on my trip. Its like being at home except with indoor archery!
Well run hostel, lots of nice free perks (oatmeal and protein powder , etc). Great location near castle, town is small enough so a walk anywhere (station, major sights ) is under 30 minutes). Lots of thought and care have been put into making the small details all work well for guests, excellent maps and guides to the area for transport and sightseeing all available. We stayed in a private room, futons were unusually comfortable and room was of a good size and well organized. Impressive fast response to emails from the hosts.
Wish we had been able to be there the first night of our trip (it was full) as it would have helped to have their wide sources of information on our first full day there. Wish we could have stayed longer- our fault, not the hostel !
Very nice atmosphere. Next to Matsumoto castle (nice at night) and close to station. Helpful people. Free bikes. Family room was perfect.
With a stay at Thank you Hippopotamus - Hostel in Matsumoto, you'll be a 5-minute walk from Matsumoto Castle and 6 minutes by foot from Matsumoto City Museum. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and microwave in a common area.
