I stayed at Hooting Owl for 3days, and I could say that it's the best part of my 6-day trip in Niseko. I had a really great time there. Staff and guests are very friendly. They are very attentive and accommodating; this place made me feel at home. Breakfast is served with lots of love. Will definitely stay there again... More

My gf and I stayed here at the beginning of Feb. Dan was great, very helpful and accommodating. The atmosphere in the Lodge is pretty great too, if you want to make some friends, it'll be easy. This place is a no brainer.

“The Hooting Owl Lodge is quiet on most nights but don't expect total silence. It's a pension lodge after all with people coming and going at different hours and looking to have a bit of fun on some nights. Choose the downstairs rooms for a quitter evening when people are socializing at the bar area. If it gets a little loud, I suggest joining in on the fun.”
