    Toshi and Meh have made a hostel that is very welcoming and relaxing. Their family also lives on site and their two young children can be found playing with the staff after they get home from school. You can organise to be picked up from the train or bus station and there are regular trips to the supermarkets to pickup groceries. Highly recommend as location is also ten minutes walk to the Gondola for Goryu.

    The staff here could not have been more welcoming, friendly, helpful, and any other word you could use to describe a great host. We had a fun time staying at K’s and would definitely go back if we’re ever skiing in Hakuba again.

    Toshi and Megumi were wonderful. K's Hakuba was warm and welcoming. The common area was spacious. I was only there briefly and look forward to staying next time I'm in the area. Cheers, Manny

    This hostel is the perfect spot to stay for skiing at any of the Hakuba resorts. It is closest to Goryu (9min walk). The staff here are incredibly helpful and kind, you feel as if you are being welcomed to their home. There is a lot of storage space for your ski gear and luggage. In the room there are bunk beds which can be noisy and rickety, but over all very clean and spacious. I would definitely recommend this place even if only to meet the friendly, kind staff.

    K's House is home to a wonderful host family. They can help you with anything. The place is spacious, especially the common areas. The kitchen is clean and very organized. Overall it's a relaxed house in a relaxed neighborhood, close to Hakuba Goryu mountain.

    The host family is so sweet and helpful. They make you feel like family while you’re there. They asked the whole hostel if anyone wanted to go to 7/11 so we didn’t have to walk and they even drove us to the train station. Make sure to let them know you’re going skiing, since they have a discount coupon. Would go back!
