We stayed four nights here in January and the location is fantastic - very close to the main intersection in Niseko Hirafu. Only a five minute flat walk to the Family chair lift so very convenient for getting on the slopes quickly and central for all the restaurants and bars.
Room was a good size, unfortunately the mattresses on the single beds were pretty uncomfortable which isnt great when we were sore after skiing. Room could do with some more places to hang up towels etc. Shared bathrooms were perfectly adequate.
Drying room was effective for storing boots etc and great to have access to washing machine and drier. Great to have wifi and also communal computer was available too.
Included breakfast was simple and exactly what you need before a day on the slopes - cereal, toast and eggs/bacon.
It was a bit random in terms of being able to tell who was working there on any particular day and I felt that it could be a little more organised for arrivals and departures etc.
Location and price made up for other quirks and therefore gets 4 stars from us but unless the beds improved I doubt we would stay here again.
