-Stayed multiple nights in May 2017.
-NOT good AT ALL. Better to find any guesthouse OTHER THAN this Morinoki. It is a waste of time or money.
-Morinoki was the WORST guesthouse ever I had. It is not because its older or insufficient facility's concerns at all, but its owner's professional low level of quality over guests. (HP or FB information not necessarily show the real.)
-The owner had been terribly annoying during my stay. He was very arrogant to guest and sometimes dishonored me and the other guests. Among us felt even fear to "his selfish hospitality".
-His attitudes over guests in general were apparently out of professional. Never worth paying even one pence a night.
-NO RECOMMENDATION, in order not to spoil your better expectation to Otaru experience, over "the Morinoki's (unprofessional) hospitality".

Located in a quiet residential area, less than a 10 minute walk from the Otaru-Minami train station (on the JR line to Sapporo). Also a 10 minute walk to the start of the tourist area / main commercial street of Otaru. The property has a little of character, and the common area and reading area are especially charming.The corgy dog and the cat are affectionate and well-groomed. Can feel a little cluttered in general. Bathroom are quite old. Minimal privacy and soundproofing in the dorms (I could hear the guy in the next dorm snoring as if he was in my bed!)

Love the cosy setup of this dorm. Everything was great and if given a chance to return to otaru i will definitely book this place again. A pity i stayed for only 1 night. Everything is clean and there are lotsa domestic games and dvds to enjoy

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple

The hostel was a warm decoration , lot of cartoon book , clean , cute dog and pretty cat, small garden. I like it. The owner speaks English ^^

location is near to the otaru working street, but a bit hilling.

ps. recheck about check-in time.
