helpful host, near to dogo onsen, awesome common part (roof, lounge, kitchen), really great futon
lot of thing closing around at 22h
Lovely hosts, very nice tatami rooms, great kitchen for cooking your own dinner, REAL coffee for breakfast, comfy common room and a great view from the roof terrace! This guesthouse has everything you need! Btw: Ask Matthew for the ramen-place! One of the best eats we had in Japan.
I liked hammock on the rooftop. I liked this amazing couple running the hostel and their hospitality. I liked their recommendation on the places to eat. I liked the common room with the funky tree in the middle. I liked the tatami dorm and now it's organised. Basically, I liked everything. I'm pretty sure that I'm coming back soon. Sono stato impressionata della casa e ospitalità :)
The staff is really helpfull, friendly and knows the area very good! Compliments for them! The location and accomodation are also very nice within walkable distance from the tramstop and oldest onsen of Japan.
Everything was fabulous
Guests are so kind and nice. Guests house just near to dogo onsen.
Matt and Nori-san were very nice. The room had an air condition and the futon was very comfortable. The Dogo Onsen is just a 5 minute walk away.
maybe a bit far away from the center.
A fantastic and well run hostel, friendly and helpful staff, homely and clean with oodles of charm. One of the finest in Shikoku.
The owners gave us excellent advice regarding local restaurants and walking routes. They were really helpful. The rooms were comfortable adn the bathrooms were clean and pleasant.
The owners were greats and the service was awesome. They gave me a lot of tips of where to go and place to eat. I would love to go back there again
The Sen Guesthostel was one of the best on our trip around japan. When we are next time in Japan, we will stay there again.
Everything! Definitely the best place I've been to. Matt et Nori (the owners) are just awesome, the building is nice, the rooms are confortable, the common area very cosy and the kitchen very convenient. There is a terrace upstair very nice to have a glass and chat a bit. You're just 5 minutes from Dogo Onsen and 20 minutes by tram from the JR station. There is a shopping mall just the next street with even a little Ghibli shop. Don't hesitate to go there !
A touch of Japanese traditions prepared for a slightly upscale backpacker crowd. Very friendly and helpful owner. Good base to visit the area.
The staff is very helpful. Gave me lots of good travel advice for Matsuyama, the rest of Japan, and even a later trip in South Korea. Privacy curtains on the beds. Hot showers. They even had real French press coffee!
The personell is very kind, and has good knowledge about the surrounding area
Great staff, went out of their way to research/suggest places for my interests!
Trying to find the place the first time (at night) was a little difficult because one landmark is under construction.
Spend some time talking about Japan with the hosts/owners.
it was a great guest house..i wish to come here again..the staff are excellent..very helpful...got kitchen we can use...a little bit of walk but really worth of money...should go for private room..but shared dormitory also nice...
nothing..everything was superb..
Aan excellent location. Close to the dogo onsen. The rooms, shower room and common room are excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. I'll definatly stay there again.
The owner give really warm welcome, adore them both.. Will visiting them again.
Great place, great hosts who have perfect tips on 'getting a taste' of the 88 temple route and for sightseeing surrounding area of Matsuyama. And the homemade Japanese curry was delicious!
Everything. Matthew showed us where to hike, shop for food, what to see... we will definitely return if our future travels take us to Matsuyama.
Nothing we can complain about.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff! For that alone we would visit again. They can tell you exactly where to go and at what time. Easy to reach. Great bathing facilities. Lovely rooms (tried both private and dorm room). Highly recommended!
Awesome staff, lovely room, private bath was the bomb.
Location a bit far from the train station - a tram and a stroll. A bit far for a one-night stop, but would be excellent as a home base near Dogo Onsen.
Run by a friendly, helpful and open minded Japanese/Texanian couple, Sen Guest house was one of the best accommodations we had during our Japan trip, bath tube in the basement is highly recommended.
