Location location location!
Excellent location, less than 200m to the ski lift (small slope to walk down) and ski schools. Prime location for restaurants, ski rental, coffee, bars. Opposite the hotel is a convenience store. Onsen (in a hotel 1000yen each excluding towel rental) is about 3 mins walk on the main road. Bus arriving at the welcome centre is about 10 min walk downhill. Shared bathroom and shower rooms were kept clean. Breakfast is very basic and served between 0730-0830 only. Toast/cereal/juices/tea every day plus one hot dish. (French toast/hash brown/ rice and miso soup etc) Drying room is crowded and full most the time but does the job. Stayed in the traditional Japanese style room with futon beds, so don’t expect them to be too comfortable if you are not used to them. Slight smell in the room, bit run down. Self check-in after a certain time, staff is very friendly. If you are looking at a relatively cheaper option in Hirafu with an excellent location, this is the place to be. However, you can expect it to be basic but does the job.

The location and the free breakfast were great but the floor boards are very loud and the rooms are very small. It is also hard to identify staff as there is no permanent front desk. The mattresses in our room were very average and there was only one private shower for all of the guests.

Good little place
Good stay. Could do with more space in the common area... could get rid of the table tennis and put another table in there. Few too many people for the facilities there. Staff were all really nice and incredibly helpful. Was a good price and would stay again. Hirafu isn’t cheap though! Be prepared for seicomart dinners.....

location is great - staff are friendly and as far an pensions you are getting a good one. Mattress probably need a freshen up, one rock hard and the other you can feel the springs. Bathrooms are shared- but not an issue and still was perfect for our stay. breakfast was good and in general a good place to stay if you're not looking to spend ridiculous amounts on accommodation
