My son and I really enjoyed our stay with Scott and his staff at Australia House. Really clean, great breakfast and friendly staff and guests. But the best thing is that you can walk to the slopes, restaurants, pubs etc no need for a car or even using the shuttle bus. Loved it!

I picked this place for two reasons: 1) location and 2) it was the least expensive accommodation within walking distance to Hirafu Village as we didn't have a rental car and didn't want to get one. The location of...

Stayed here early March 2016 for 8 days, comfy beds, good breakfast great location and excellent Internet connection. Heaters warm and showers hot, that's all you really need. Only negative is, can be noisy early hours of the morning from people coming home from the pub. Otherwise, would stay there again.

If you're after somewhere cheap to lay your head after a big day on the slopes or big night at the pub, it's hard to go past this one. Great location opposite 24hr Seicomart for all day to day necessities. 30 seconds walk to inter-resort bus stop and multiple bar/food options. Included breakfast is ultra-basic but will get you up...

Stayed here two weeks in January for boarding. The location is ideal, it's a little overpriced for what you get but in the end wasn't too much of a bother.
