We stayed for a night here. Max was very helpful and friendly. Answered my emails prompt. Dinner was simple but it was tasty. They also provide transport to onsen with a fee. If we do return then we would definitely stay here again.

The YHA very clean and feel comfort. The owners are very nice , they also planned some different onsen(hotspring) trip at every evening. I finished the Mount Yotei (Ezo Fuji) as they provide the paid shuttle service from YHA to the starting of the mountain. Would recommend to book the breakfast(which cost 600Yen) and dinner (1200yen) provided by the host,...

I stayed in this hostel in January 2015 (this week) and had an amazing stay. The hostel owner, Max, went out of his way to help make the trip easy and enjoyable.
