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
The hostel was very welcoming and friendly. The staff was very helpful and it was close to everything.

The most social hostel I've ever stayed at. Everyone was very friendly an welcoming, including the staff. If you wanna ski/snowboard and have a fun time in Hakuba, then come here.
