    Ski in ski out hostel! What?! Was a great place to come back to after long days of snowboarding. They have free daily shuttles to and from every resort, two delicious restaurants, and lovely rooms. The staff are welcoming and help you out with your needs. Would def stay here time and time again.

    Such a sick place. Ski lifts located just outside, great selection of craft beers and solid pub style menu. Staff give this place such a good reputation. Always down for a beer and a chat and always happy to help with anything you need. Big shoutout Zach, Nobu, Louie and all the rest of the crew.

    Hands down one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. It’s a brand new hostel with brand new facilities, but the staff are so welcoming, helpful and fun that it feels like they’ve been doing it for years. The location is super convenient, walk 2 minutes and you’re literally at the Tsukaige mountain base. But if you want to check out other resorts or just go into town, there are free daily and nightly shuttles. Plus the rooms are comfy with a gorgeous view! Stay here- you won’t regret it.

    From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the atmosphere created by the wonderful staff left us feeling at home. The location is amazing, right next to the lifts and the facilities are brilliant. Warm rooms, clean showers and beds, and two stocked bars. The staff is also incredibly welcoming and the environment is friendly and inviting. They provided shuttles around to any of the other mountains or in to town and pickup and drop off. 15/10 stars.

    Great hostel in great location. This place makes a snow trip super easy and it’s good value for good clean accommodation. Has a great breakfast included, decent bar, shuttle service, ski/snow hire access/hire through rhythm (walking distance to other hire places). Can’t go wrong staying here. I could put the highest mark on security as it’s low, but it’s also not really needed to be any higher. Thanks for a good trip!

    Definitely recommend this spot! Great value for money when comparing options around Hakuba Valley! The guys running the place have really good understanding of what people look for when going snowboarding. Amazing breakfast!

    Had an awesome stay here. The staff really make this place special. Felt really at home. Shout out to Ziki, Brodie, Zack - Y'all rule! Had a king size bed which was really comfortable. Room was super clean. The free shuttles in the morning and evening made Hakuba more accessible without a car. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

    This hostel has a party vibe. There's two bars! They also drive you to and from the party parts of town. They drive you to and from all the Hakuba mountains as well. The place is relatively large, has communal showers, pool table, storage for skis, breakfast everyday is great, and it's literally right next to Tsugaike lifts.
