K's House Hakuba Alps provides transport from the train station to the hostel when guest first arrives and that was very helpful. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and activities. Overall, my family enjoyed our stay very much.

No restaurant, no onsen, no problem!”

Very close to Hakuba night life and ski slopes. Amazing hospitality.

If you are into into the Japanese ski experience with included breakfast and dinner and an on site onsen, this is not your kind of place. If you don't mind the "time-share" feeling of making your own breakfast and possibly sharing a bathroom come here. The staff is amazing. The house is clean. The kitchen is fully supplied with cooking gear. And they have discount tickets for much of the area's attractions (lift tickets, onsen, restaurants). They also let you use their facilities the day you check out after your day on the ski slopes, so no stinky train ride back to Tokyo! I went with a group of friends. But there were other families there with kids. Also, a great place to meet people from around the world (France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Korea ,USA). For the price, I think it's the best place in Hakuba, especially if you are not looking for the resort experience.

One of the best hostel experiences ever”

Toshi and his family are amazing hosts. I would love to have them as neighbors and friends. We shared many of the same spaces (kitchen, living room) so they have created a culture of respect and kindness for each other's needs. It's very clean, comfortable, and everyone was quiet by about 10pm. They were able to answer any question I had and give useful info for the area. I was here for one week in late January and it was the perfect location for hitting the slopes in Goryu, Hakuba47, Happo-one and Iwatake. They even sometimes gave us a lift to the bus stop or to the grocery store. My only minor complaint is that there was only one shower that was not very hot. Many people went to the onsen instead. Also, I accidentally forgot my passport and left for Kyoto. Within a day they had sent it to me and I could fly home. Overall, amazing and memorable experience. Thank you Toshi and co!

Good clean hostel in quiet area”

Stayed in a dorm room. The room was very musty when I first arrived, but don't think that was the fault of the staff--just smelly ski socks. Would help to air out the room during cleaning. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable--need to put sheets on yourself. Shared shower and toilet were fine. Common area is like a large living room. It's a nice peaceful place to relax. Fresh brewed coffee in the morning is a nice touch. They can set you up with lift tickets and rental gear from nearby shop. A 10-15 minute walk to the Goryu ski resort. Neighborhood is very quiet and low-key. It's a good place to relax in the mountains.

Worth The Stay”

The pleasant family atmosphere, the neat and subtle touches that made it feel like home and the information and discounts that allowed us to explore the region and do winter sports.

It was one of best stays we have had in Japan. The Family are the most supportive, kind and generous people. They remembered our names from day one, often provided us with helpful insight and gave us lifts as we required them. The building itself is perfect for a solo traveller or a group. With the shared dining and kitchen really encouraging friendly interaction as well as giving it the homely touch. The beds were comfortable and the rooms also gave you your own private space. During ski season it is only a tiny stroll from the slopes and convenience stores.
