Property Information:

Hakuba's first and most famous backpackers, and still the best in town. With a great atmosphere and cheap long term rates, minutes walk to restaurants and bars.

Snowbeds was opened in 1998 and was one of the first foreign owned business's in Hakuba. Still the most popular backpackers accommodation in Hakuba due to location and word of mouth, if the Snowbeds staff don't know something about Hakuba then it's not worth knowing. The cosy communal areas lead to many new friendships. You can always find someone to ski with at Snowbeds.

Located in Echoland only minutes walk to bars, restaurants and convenience stores. Free shuttle bus stop for 5 resorts right out front. Closest ski resorts being Happo One and 47/Goryu.

    Bit of a mixed bag. Staff were helpful and friendly (including lending their season lift pass, saving money). However the atmosphere was entirely dominated by the resident seasonal workers, who had their own group that was quite cliquey. Although the place was fairly empty and might've been livelier in peak season Also the room was very cold and the only way to heat it is a very loud kerosene heater that needs to be run all night, in fact most of the property smells of kerosene
