    5/5 Excellent

    Clean room and Friendly host

    Friendly and amicable host. Clean room. Lots of amenities available. Onsen avail at level 1.

    Stayed 1 night in Aug 2018


    Good location but grumpy managers

    This place could be a great stay if the staff were a bit friendly. Not welcoming at all, and supposed to be a 'Guest House'. Very expensive stay for a hostel which can only be accessed by vehicle.

    Pros: Close to Lake Kussharo (short drive). Interesting wooden building with huge communal area.

    Cons: Staff need to become friendly and welcoming. They didn't have a communal refrigerator, so had to ask for access to store anything and retrieve.

    Location: Close to Lake Kussharo and Lake Mashu. Good base for exploring the National Parks.

    4/5 Good

    Quite nature

    Very good hospitality the cooking in the place made the whole place smell like food which was not so good, other than that very recommended.

    4/5 Good

    Interesting place | Fantastic views

    I thought the place was nice. It's quite the distance away from the closest station and very far from the nearest city but if you like that sort of thing then it's perfect. The room I stayed in looked like it was infested with ladybugs but they don't really bother you once you turn off the lights. Having a car is probably better for this place since everything is so far away. There's no store or restaurant nearby so you'll have to eat at the hostel which I personally did not mind. The staff however, will provide a shuttle service to Mashu station if you let them know in advance. However, it seems like this place would be better to stay at in the summer since there appears to be a lot of hiking trails in the area.

    Pros: I liked the friendly staff and the atmosphere of the hostel.

    Cons: Probably a sign or some information about how the "shuttle service" works would be helpful for those who don't have a car.

    Location: The location is pretty much in the middle of nowhere but it's great.
