Great value accommodation
Staff was super friendly! Home cooked breakfast was amazing! Room heater was a little quirky though but all in all a very comfortable stay.

Cosy, basic lodge
We enjoyed our stay at Grandpapa but were not expecting the shared shower/toilets. This was fine in the end; however, the walls are super thin and you can hear everyone's muffled conversations and footsteps. Tough for sleeping if the rooms are full. Otherwise, comfortable and clean... very helpful staff and convenient options for transport/getting around.

Loved it!
The staff are fantastic! Very welcoming, we were collected from the bus stop and given a free lift back when we were leaving by Kohei (who also has a great knowledge of back country routes!!). Kohei (another Kohei, I hope I've got the names right!!) was very patient and helpful with us trying to learn Japanese from him. Breakfast was well worth waking up for, thanks to Grandpapa! Great location, with a bus service just up the road that takes you straight to the Gondala. Will definitely stay here again if we head back to Japan.

Perfectly Located Pension
Stayed here for three nights in December 2014. Excellent staff- they organised all of our ski hire for us and took us to and from the welcome centre which was lovely. Located a short walk from the main street close to all of the restaurants and bars. The free shuttle bus that takes you around Niseko stops at the end of the street (like 3 mins walk away). Only downsides were that it was quite noisy with the wooden floors- could hear other guests moving around the place quite loudly. Also, the beds are quite old and dated but fine if you're just using the rooms as a base to explore the mountain and not spending lots of time in there. Shared bathrooms were clean
