The staff was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They helped my partner to arrange a special surprise gift for me upon arrival. The place and room were very clean and nice. The bed was so comfortable! Location was excellent- close to monkey park, close walk to onsen and restaurants and bus station. Would highly recommend.

Overall a nice mountain get away from the city bustle. Beautiful scenic views in this city. The couple was extremely friendly and helpful in providing recommendations on things to do in the area. The place was extremely clean which I appreciated.

Hotel:flawless. Customer service:needs improvement
I cannot fault the hostel, the bed was really comfortable and it was very clean, the only area of improvement that I can comment on would be the frontdesk’s hospitality The way we were treated during check in was very unwelcoming. We arrived at around 1230pm and the man who “welcomed” us did not make us feel welcome at all. We think he was actually annoyed, he told us that check in was at 3, which was fine but I asked him if we can leave our bags. Having travelled all the way from Tokyo, we were all tired from the early morning trip and we asked if we can use the bathroom to change our clothrs and the man replied, no coz its being cleaned right now. At that point, I really got annoyed and answered him back that we cannot even use the toilet? And he responded very coarsely, okay go, go and use it, go now! The check in was really awkward, as if we were intruding. The woman on the other hand was really lovely. Again, the hostel is really nice and clean but the man at the frontdesk I reckon need to be trained more on how to welcome guests hospitably.

Excellent hostel, very helpful and friendly staff, large comfortable room and very clean. A short walk from the train station, where you can also catch buses to the snow monkey park. There were lots of restaurants near by as well. Staff spoke very good english.
