MY Ecolodge is a high-quality budget accommodation option within a snowball’s throw from the Hirafu ski slopes, but without the Hirafu price tag (ie expensive). Stay within reach of all the fun and action of the heart of Niseko without blowing the budget or compromising on quality. Most other budget accommodation in Niseko is in older buildings and their glory days of the 80s and 90s are well and truly over. MY Ecolodge’s glory days have just begun.
MY Ecolodge has 68 rooms with 172 beds. All rooms are 14sqm, with the double rooms having queen-size beds, and the quad-rooms having bunk beds.There is also a large lounge room where guests can hang out and talk amongst themselves or make new friends with other travellers from all over the world. Internet speeds are super fast in Hirafu so with the help of free wifi internet you can get your photos and videos online and back to friends and family back home in no time.
There is an onsite café – MY ecoCafé – that serves “teishoku” set meals, and there are plenty of places to eat within walking, driving or bussing distance, but the option of a cheap, fresh healthy meal onsite is sure to come in handy more than once on your trip. MY Ecolodge has double and twin rooms, as well as quad rooms. The lodge offers a free ski shuttle leaving MY ecolodge, the Welcome Centre (Ace Quad/Family lift) and the Hirafu Gondola every 30 minutes.

Setting / Atmosphere
MY Ecolodge is located in Izumikyo 2, which is a precinct on the edge of Hirafu Village on the eastern side. The lodge is alongside a forest, creek and pond in the shadow of Mt Yotei and with views of the ski mountain from the front. It’s a quiet area with no bars, just accommodation and a few restaurants.
Lifts / Transport
MY Ecolodge is on the main road into Hirafu, about 1.5km from the centre of the village. It’s about a 20-minute walk, but the lodge has a free shuttle that runs from 7.45am-4pm. The free Hirafu Village Shuttle runs until 9pm, and the stop is just 2 minutes’ walk away so you can use that after 4pm. The inter-resort bus also has a stop just outside.
Restaurants / Bars
There are about five or six restaurants within walking distance of MY Ecolodge and a whole lot more in central Hirafu. Take the bus to and from Hirafu until 9pm. If you miss the last bus back, you can try to catch a taxi (not always easy) or walk back down the hill to the lodge – there’s a nice wide footpath on the side of the road.
