The hostel is in a great location but we were there out of season so it was quiet. Toshi and family are incredibly friendly, very helpful and have good english. They helped us with our next move on and with organising some skiing on the last day of the season. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the facilities in the kitchen were excellent, including washing and drying of laundry.


Toshi and his family made us feel very welcome and were always willing to help, great location near the slopes, very clean and easy to chat to other guests in the conmon areas. Would highly recommend to others :)

Being at K's house was like staying at a friends place more than anything. But even better was the deals you get while staying there; being such a small community they have it so both your rentals and lift tickets are cheaper (if you head out early enough.) The only thing is it's pretty far from the grocery store, but to compensate they sometimes drive you and thenother guests to get supplies.

Great Location for Gyro and 47 Mountains but a little way from the town centre and other mountains


Really clean, nice big common room, happened to come on their 8th birthday party and got a hearty free meal. Dorms are clean and beds are comfy. Toshi and Megumi are lovely, and Masa is a cool guy.
