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.
The owners are what make the guesthouse so special. The location close to the sights is very good, the communal space pleasant, and the futons thicker and more comfortable than in other places we stayed. However, it is the warmth and helpfulness of the owners which makes the Sen unique. Excellent, detailed advice was given for both the nearby sights and the city, as well as for ongoing travel.
Shared bathroom, on different floor from room.
The great value we got from Sen Guesthouse was from the staff. It was a refreshing change for us to have english speaking staff. Matt gave us a route to walk in temple/shrine viewing that was the highlight of our trip. This felt like the window to a secret world that we would not have found on our own or from tourist information. Also great advice on dinner. The other great value is location close to Dogo Onsen. This IS the spa from Spirited Away. Thanks to Sen Guesthouse, we maximized one afternoon in Matsuyama to be possibly the best experience on our two-week trip!
The room was cold and the heater did not work.
The owners local knowldge and keen to give directions. Near the onsen. The shared showers are amazing: each one in a different and huge room.
Check in starts at 4pm - we arrived earlier and the guest house is closed, no place to leave the baggage. That was a bit of a problem for us. They don't accept debit/credit card to pay. I prefer private bathroom and showers even if small.
Easy walking distance to Dogo onsen, readily available wi-fi, friendly hosts with great recommendations for sights to visit and places to eat.
