Comments from Myoko Powder Hostel
We are a new hostel in the Myoko area and hope to provide a strong communal atmosphere where fellow skiers can meet and chill out.
Our staff are a mix of Australian, English and Japanese and have all done seasons in Myoko before and are happy to advise on everything from best places to hike to the best places to drink. We will also be offering shuttle services in the hostel van to the many nearby resorts in the valley.
We are proud of our large communal areas where people can drink, sit by the fire, play games and discuss their lines from the day!
