Good location but grumpy managers
This place could be a great stay if the staff were a bit friendly. Not welcoming at all, and supposed to be a 'Guest House'. Very expensive stay for a hostel which can only be accessed by vehicle.

Quite nature
Very good hospitality the cooking in the place made the whole place smell like food which was not so good, other than that very recommended.

Interesting place | Fantastic views
I thought the place was nice. It's quite the distance away from the closest station and very far from the nearest city but if you like that sort of thing then it's perfect. The room I stayed in looked like it was infested with ladybugs but they don't really bother you once you turn off the lights. Having a car is probably better for this place since everything is so far away. There's no store or restaurant nearby so you'll have to eat at the hostel which I personally did not mind. The staff however, will provide a shuttle service to Mashu station if you let them know in advance. However, it seems like this place would be better to stay at in the summer since there appears to be a lot of hiking trails in the area.

nice place - good stay
booked this hostel last minute (8pm at night) because I happened to be nearby and I had a great stay. Building is much more interesting architecturally than the average hostel. Dorm room was very comfortable (4 beds and plenty of room) with inner spring mattresses (hooray!). Common room very pleasant, hostel will cook dinner on request (noodle soup) and good japanese breakfast. Beers and cocktails also available. All reasonably priced. Staff were lovely and happy to have a chat. We did some stargazing and they recommended the "sea of clouds" at a local Observatory the following morning (weather permitting). Only dislike for me was the shared japanese style showers (shy!) but the hot spring bath was nice. Very happy with and would stay again.

Nice place but limited English
This is a nice guesthouse quite out of the way. The staff are very accomodating and fetched me to and fro from the JR station multiple times. If you are on public transport, there is nothing much to see around unless you rent a bike. There are several good cycling routes along Kussaharo lake. Mashu is also accessible from here - get a ride to mashu station and transfer to public bus. Hostel staff speak limited english but they help as much as possible.

Average guesthouse
Quiet location near to sightseeing spots. Comfortable hostel, but shared bathrooms were on a different floor from the rooms which were quite inconvenient.
