Our stay was in February 2019. Kamoshika Views has a cool vibe in and around it. It is sitting on a hillside, facing Hakuba’s slopes. The kitchen has huge glass walls so you can see the mountains. It was those photos on Airbnb that had us book with Rus. The guesthouse was a long way from everything, so they had free van services throughout the day. He and his partner, Frank, brought guests to ski resorts, grocery, and town centre with restaurants and bars. When my husband and I stayed there, there were supposed to be three services according to their Airbnb page, but I was sure they did more. They gave us good recommendations on where to go and eat. They also drove us to the bus station on our last day. Rus warmly welcomed us to his place. We immediately felt like it was a nice home to stay in on the freezing-end of winter season. We rented a room instead of dorm beds for two nights. The room was warm and cozy, but it was the kitchen and living room that we loved hanging out in, a can of Asahi beer in hand. However, cleanliness could be improved. Actually, it was the only issue I had with the guesthouse. With a lot of guests and only two hosts (I never saw anyone else), it must be tough to accomplish this. They could perhaps give guests a constant reminder to clean after themselves or avoid leaving leftover food or litter on the table or couch. It is, after all, a guesthouse and not a hotel. The restrooms could also use a regular cleanliness check. There was one toilet (out of the several) that hadn’t been maintained since we arrived, and it kind of affected the whole experience if not for everything else. Still, I’d say I would go back. I could imagine it better with some friends, and finally try skiing! Overall, it was a very good stay.

Awesome time at Rus’s place. Location is key, views are awesome, and recommendations are on point. He provides a shuttle service from the hostel to locations around the hostel. We had a blast and would definitely book again!

Really enjoyed my time here. The communal kitchen and living room are large and there’s plenty of room to relax. The view from the house is wonderful. The host is great too - I appreciated the grocery store runs and the pick up and drop off from the bus station!

I stayed at the Kamoshika Views during the quiet season so the place was very chilled and had everything you would need for a relaxing break.The lodge even lived up to its name as you were able to spot a kamoshika roaming in the woods😀 the owner Rus was a wonderful host and he is happy to pick up/drop off people from town which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend!
