I had a great stay at Owashi lodge. not the cheapest around but has a great location, friendly helpful staff and lots of fun. It was a very clean place and plenty of room to chill out or party. Our room was on the small side, and the pillow was ordinary but the bed was comfortable. It has an awesome... More

I've spent a lot of time in hostels around the world, and this was definitely a hit. Happily recommend staying here to anyone. Close to the slopes and it has a board storage area. Its clean, has pretty decent beds, is relatively quiet and the staff are helpful. The new bar downstairs just blew me away with all new pool... More

I would not say this is the best place to stay but if you are in budget, it is definitely a great place to crash. The room where not big but it has a basin and a window. The bed and pillow was not fantastic but bearable. The heater was good since it was really cold except that its all... More

This hotel was recommended by another hostel that was full. We didn't know exactly where it was and that it was located away from Kutchan. Storm, the fellow at the desk offered to pick us up at the train station for 1000 Yen which was probably half what a taxi would cost. The place was mostly empty in the off... More

We were a group of 5 travelling together for the snowboarding. We wanted to save a little on the lodging, and found Owashi Lodge! It was perfect for us. We stayed in the mixed dorm, and somehow got the whole room to ourselves. (Of course we went off season) We stayed there for 3 nights. While we were there, we... More

I stayed in a single bunk bed room for a week in February. While not glamorous, the room was comfortable. There was enough storage for the two of us, a heater and a small desk in addition to the bunk bed. The bathrooms were clean, though clearly well used over the years. One slight annoyance was the fact each sex... More

We stayed at Owashi Lodge for 10 nights during December. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. The beds were great and the rooms big for japan standards. We had a private 3 person room. All rooms have there own heaters which were fairly easy to operate though I think some English instructions in the room would be helpful.... More

Upon arrival we had been put into two rooms, both with double beds but my booking on Hostelworld was clearly one room two people. The staff at Owashi were very understanding and put us into one room for half the price of the original booking and said if we cancel on Hostelworld and lose our deposit not to do it..... More

Stayed here for 5 nights recently. Very conveniently located, near the ski lifts, shops and eateries. Clean rooms and bathroom/toilets. Mainly caters to the younger crowd, not very suitable for families. I happened to be there when there when a snowboarding camp was being conducted. It gets pretty noisy at times and kitchen eating area can get a tad busy.... More
