the BDL is a great place to stay if your into skiing the niseko pow. like minded people from all over the place are attracted to this place for all the right reasons. the staff is super helpful and happy to share beta and tips for where to ski all over the islands. the specials are delicious and well priced for the area. we had a hard time going into town after spying the specials on the chalk board. clean showers and amenities. clean rooms.

We had the best stay at BDL! Super friendly and helpful staff, particularly Dee who was able to answer any and all questions from our time of booking. Easy location in terms of getting up to the lifts (shuttles from BDL in the morning or a bus stop 100m down the road if you want a little sleep in) and lots of buses heading into Hirafu (main village) - Niseko village itself has lots of options for eating out if you don't want to head into town as well. Rooms are basic but you don't need much more when you are skiing all day! Everyone else staying at the lodge was really friendly and there for the same reason which created a good vibe! Would absolutely go back if returning to Niseko.

BDL is by far the best option you should consider to stay when you decide to make the trip to Niseko. 5 minute walk from the lifts giving you access to some of the freshest snow before others join you on the slopes. The rooms are perfect for your stay, all you need. Dee is wonderful and will happily help you out where required, as will all of the other staff there. Cheap drinks at the downstairs bar, as well as awesome food and good breakfast. Pool table and dart board to keep you occupied while drinking. 100% recommend considering staying here if you're hunting fresh snow travelling with mates or a partner.

Perfect place to spend a few days in Niseko. The crew here are all in town b/c they love skiing and this Niseko community, which makes for an excellent experience. They have great beta on the best spots to find good snow, and will go out of their way to make sure your trip is great. We will be back!

Black Diamond Lodge is THE place to stay in Niseko. The rooms are pretty basic, but very clean and offer everything you need on a skiing trip to Hokkaido. BDL's biggest advantage is its staff, which really understands the needs of skiers & snowboarders and takes care of your needs / wishes / questions during your entire stay as well as before and even after. In addition, the restaurant offers the BEST food in town and is definitely worth visiting, even if you are not staying at the Lodge itself.

Do you like to wake up to a hot breakfast every morning? Is ridding belly deep pow before 80% of the world wakes up something you might be interested in? Like meeting cool people from around the globe? Get here. Literally everything from the staff to the recommendations to the tours to the food and even to the bar downstairs, BDL does it right. They've got years of experience to back it up. Dee will give you the rundown on the best place to shred, eat, or drink anywhere from Niseko to just about Sapporo. Frank, Alec and Oli will cook you killer breakfast in the morning to fuel up before riding over-the-shoulder pow for 6 hours straight. When you're done? Visit whichever beautiful parts of Niseko you choose, but you should find your way back here later at night for a beer or two and couple fingers of whiskey to cap off the day and get stoked with everyone else about how you're going to repeat the same legendary day tomorrow. *Still stoking super hard as it snowed for nearly 72 hours straight right when we showed up. I hope that happens on your trip too!

The staff were a pleasure, always very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is exactly what you needed before a long days touring. The beds are western sized beds, unlike some other accommodation in Niseko. It is far for luxury, but it is the best place to stay in Niseko.

Unless you want to waste money on western style accommodations and not socialize you should stay here. Just one bus stop from Annapuri resort and 2 miles from Niseko Village you're in the heart of Hokaido powder paradise. Rooms are small but comfortable, shared bathrooms are always clean, free breakfast is amazing, and dinner specials were top notch.

Best snow, best people. For a bunch of boys to get neck deep in powder and sink beers in the evening this was the perfect spot. Make sure you do a day trip or two to Rusutsu, arguably the best snowboarding spot in the world.

Staying at the GreenLeaf, we're not really buffet people and having had a few poor dining experiences in Niseko village, we came across this gem. A 10 minute walk down the road, glad I pack a pocket torch to be safe. It's a real skiers hang out, bustling with groups of excited snow hounds, with the a mandatory ski video showing. We received an enthusiastic, genuine welcome. Having checked the menu & daily specials, we ordered wings, roast pork, kimchee cod and a jug of beer, then connected to the free wifi and settled down. This was easily the best meal we had since arriving in Japan, everything we had expected and hoped for. Likelihood of another visit this holiday - 100% The whole place was immaculately clean, staff were extremely helpful and enthusiastic. Would be high on my list of places to stay should we return.
