The Mountain Jam hostel is run by an energetic woman by the name of Itsumi. Her home style cooking is fabulous and has rubbed off on her son, who owns the Jam Cafe situated directly in front of the hostel. The rooms are quite small and don't expect much decoration, but they are clean and warm. We visited in the winter and looking the houses and how thin the walls look, we were a bit worried about staying warm! The only down side to the rooms is they are all Japanese style and have single beds, so if your a couple be prepared to snuggle close. This place was a great way to experience local Hokkaido food and company for a very reasonable price. The Jam Cafe is also one of the coziest bars with great food and good prices. The location is also a major plus. It is in the heart of Hirafu, minutes from restaurants and a 1 minute walk to the bus stop that takes you up to the mountain. One other note is there is smoking allowed in the hostel, we kept our door close always and didn't have any problem with the smell. But if your sensitive to this you may want to consider elsewhere.
