Mt Hakuba Backpackers is fully equipped with an in-house bar (separated from the sleeping areas), restaurant, guest laundry, guest kitchen, and an internet cafe (with free wireless). The bar has cozy sofas, a free billiard table and 2 daily happy hours. You can buy cheap but filling meals at the bar (it is only open during the ski season).

We are open every day of the year, and we encourage people to come during the non-winter months to check out the wild beauty of Hakuba. There are many hiking and mountain bike trails to explore and we can recommend you some nice ones. We also rent mountain bikes.
