Close to slopes and shuttle service. Nice staff, mostly Qussies and some Kiwis which was suprising for us after our itinerary in Japan with only japanese staffs. Room was clean and okay, however I was on the floor with men's bathroom and it was a bit of pain for me to go down and up everytime. Great powder; we loved...

Owashi lodge is an American style dorm style lodge, granted it may not apply to everyone's taste but for the price you are paying this place offers a good value. I just recently stayed at Owashi with my gf and it took us both back to memory lane when we were once students. The toilet area is clean, the shower...

Owashi Lodge is a quaint and cozy "USA dormitory style" feel combined with Japanese elements. Staffs are friendly and helpful. (most of the staff are foreigners) and English is the predominately language - rooms are bunk beds. Showers and bathrooms are on different floors (men on 2/F, 4/F). Women's on 1/F and 3/F. Kitchen is well laid out and is...

Recently stayed with a friend at Owashi Lodge for a week whilst our other friends rented a villa. The place is simple, warm and close to the slopes (a few min walk) and has everything you need, we saved significantly by staying here and using the communal kitchen to cook breakfast each morning. There is a bar with table tennis...

Not being a 20-30 something year old I did wonder why my partner had booked me into what seemed little more than a hostel. As a couple that frequents rock festivals he assured me that I would love it. He was annoyingly right! We had a room with a bunk bed; double bed with a single over and had booked...

Having been to niseko grand hirafu 3 times, this is the best accommodation I've had up here. Grand Hirafu is divided into upper village (close to lifts) and lower village (slightly more restaurants). Staying in upper village is way more convenient. Owashi lodge is the closest a hostel/ budget accommodation is to the lifts. Makes the freezing morning hike up...

Pro's: During the off-season in Hirafu this was a very cheap option as a couple. There are laundry facilities (additional cost). Great location for access to both Gran Hirafu & Hirafu intersection for buses and restaurants.

I just stayed at Owashi Lodge for a week, and the big plus here is definitely the location (so many TA reviews on this). The facilities are complete & generally clean, the common kitchen can be messy but I feel some users are not cleaning up when they should. As for the staff, I find them to be friendly, responsive...
