Solo summer traveller, I stayed 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm which worked perfectly. Well set-out, great onsen, lots of timber in the décor. Took the 2 meal option and really liked it. Lunches are available at the Ropeway station if you are around during the day. What a wonderful location for the big hikes and some medium hikes.... More

The fantastic lodge we stayed at being fully booked for that additional night we needed, we ended up here. It's nice I guess for the youth hostel, but compared to the lodge, it's impersonal and pricey. Japanese style room. Rotenburo. Bestregardsfromfar

We don't normally stay at youth hostels, but this one was lovely, and the only youth staying was our own 11 year old son. All the staff were friendly and speak some English. We had a private Japanese room for 3, which was comfortable and spacious. As this is a hostel there are no private facilities or air conditioning, so... More

The weather was rubbish but this YHA was lovely. We had a western twin room. Positives: 3 gorgeous, huge, varied dinners and breakfasts with a mix of western and Japanese food in the dishes ( it works!) Lovely small indoor and outdoor gender separated onsen. Great service. Negatives: Beds were hard (but fine) Pillows were worse (bring your travel pillow!)... More

We stayed here for 5 nights early July 2014 and it was great. Each day we took the ropeway and walked different paths .We climbed Asahidake from both sides. Be warned walking from the far side away from ropeway involves a steep climb up snow and then a near vertical scree slope to the summit. The food was excellent; we... More

We stayed in a private Japanese style room for 3 nights in this hostel. Good indoor onsen, cold outdoor onsen. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak more than enough English and Chinese to be able to converse in some pleasant conversation. The facilities are simple and clean and the atmosphere is of a lodge. Good large drying... More

We spent three nights here and loved it. Peaceful rooms, clean and friendly, nice outdoor and indoor onsen hot springs, and delicious (and huge) meals. We thought it was fairly priced, given the location and quality of the food, rooms, etc. Great spot!

We stayed for 2 nights up in Daisetsuzan after a few days in Niseko. The staff was helpful and friendly. They spoke some English. One or two spoke perfect English. There was little to no parking space. When we got there, there was no TV, WIFI or telephone reception due to the lines being cut and messed up after an... More

We stayed at this youth hostel two nights and were looking for reasons to extend our stay! The hosts were extremely nice and helpful, the food gorgeous and the onsen beautiful. The hikes to do in Daisetzusan National park are very easily accessible as the cable car is only a short walk away. Really great stay overall!
