Thank you so much for the care and smiles you've given us :) It was warm and comfortable. And the hosts were the friendliest! We enjoyed chatting and sharing time with them so much. Everything was clean and many informations were given to us. Even during a snowstorm, it is not far from the center, station, and park. The snow...

Found 3000 yen per night rather expensive. 30 minute walk from the JR station and didn't feel welcome at all. The owner wasn't very friendly to me and her English was very poor. Actually the place is more the owners home then a hostel. Couldn't use the kitchen, because she occupied it with her two little children. Couldn't relax because...

It felt like a refugee camp. This place is only suitable for smaller group, maybe 1-2 people in total, although there are enough beds for 10 plus 1 cushion made sofa which could turn into a bed.

At the price point of Y3k per pax, this place is a gem! Though the building is old, the toilets & shower are modern & functions perfectly. The host Ms. Motoko has made the place very homely with her 2 lovely children & made the extra effort to find us a place to park our car for free (parking charges...

I decided to stay here based on the price, it was 3000 yen a night which is hard to beat in Japan for a budget traveler like myself. The guest house is located a bit up the hill from Otaru train station, walking distance. There is a 7-11 right next to the guest house. The owner Motoko is a very...
