This hostel is great for skiing and/or snowboarding in niseko. You may think that it's a problem that it's not located right in the slopes but the owner drives you there every morning, also because of the location eating out is cheaper than in the closer places.
Everything was perfect. Ryo is a very friendly guy and an excellent cook :) He drove us every morning to the ski resort and cooked some delicious dinners. The place was very clean, has a nice common area and fully equipped kitchen. Its also very close to the train station and a big supermarket.
My friend and I loved the ambiance, definitely different than any other hostel that we had stayed at before. The place was supremely clean and had a beautiful kitchen including a traditional tea area. In addition, Ryo was an awesome host. The only downside is that it is a bit outside of the resort area. Not a problem in the morning since Ryo drops everyone off, but it does take a little longer to get back in the evening on the bus (free w/ ski pass). Might be tricky if there is a big storm tho.
