Everything good about this hostel, if you arrive at a regular hour in Niseko/Kutchan. The challenge is when you arrive late and the buses have stopped running. It can be a challenge. I was lucky in getting a ride to the Hilton Hotel with their hotel guests and then hailing a cab from the Hilton at Niseko Higashiyama.

Se podría recordar a los jóvenes que no pueden gritar ni hablar alto a partir de las 22:00h.
