We cater for hip young riders and skiers looking for a 'step up' from the typical ultra-basic standard of accomodation offered by most hostels, and who want to meet and hang out with similar like-minded travellers from all walks of life. Whether you're a creative type, investment banker, artist or vagabond, you're bound to meet someone interesting here.
MonkeyRider is located in the beautiful Echoland district in Hakuba (host to many of the skiiing events during the 1998 Nagano winter Olympics) which is the main restaurant/bar area in Hakuba, so you are always just a stone's throw from the action - Plus, the shuttle bus to each of the resorts in Hakuba leaves from right outside our front door, so you are just minutes away from the slopes. We also offer a complimentary pick-up & drop off service from the train station and bus stop.
Monkey Rider prides itself on maintaining outstanding levels of cleanliness. Common rooms are cleaned twice daily and guest rooms are cleaned regularly.
