Very cozy little place, with very friendly staffs you can treat them like friends, great place to meet with other skiers/boarders. Location is a bit off, but close to shuttle bus stop. Interior is nice and warm feels like home, very cozy bed.

Some days good, some days just okay but I appreciate the inclusive breakfast because of few nearby restaurant options. Cleanliness - Very good (except for the shoe area which needs...

I was a bit late booking my trip to Niseko and was a bit worried about the availability of accommodation but I needn't have. Hooting Owl was great. Really friendly and helpful staff who can pick you up and drop you off at the Niseko Gondola next to the Hilton. Really refreshing just to be able to chat the guys...

“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.”
