10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic stay
This was a great Lodge with a super helpful and friendly staff. There is really nice common area and the breakfast was perfect for a day on the mountain. The drying room was incredibly appreciated.

6/10 Good

This was by far the most expensive hostel I've ever stayed at, so maybe i was expecting more because of that. Overall it was a good little place but throughout my week there i was disappointed about several things. they did lots of construction that would have been nice to know about beforehand, the bathrooms smelled awful(possibly because of the construction but still), the staff was very nice but they were only there about half the time i needed to ask questions and it wouldn't be ridiculous hours i needed them, often times it was only like 4 pm??? the hostel restaurant was very good but very overpriced but since it was the only option around they kinda gotcha with that. breakfast was good but lacked diversity, especially when japanease breakfasts could be an option in japan. i was thankful for eggs and fruit every morning but by the 6th morning i was craving a little vegetables or something else besides greasy bacon and white toast. the last thing i have to mention is the morning i departed, i asked them where to be for my bus to the airport, they specifically told me "the moiwa lodge"next-door, but it was really the "lodge moiwa 834"which was a street up, i almost missed my bus because of it! However despite all this, i would consider staying here again cuz everyone was really nice, it was a cozy place, and i feel like i just caught it on a bad week. i would probably prefer to stay at the moiwa lodge next time though.
