A not so happy stay
The guest house was quite a long walk from JR. Its ok if you dont have a lot of luggages but if you do then you'll feel the strain. Upon arrival to the guest house, I find out Reception is closed until 3pm. So if you dont want to waste your time waiting or carrying around luggages, you just leave the bags at a rack outside the Reception desk (the guest house is completely closed and no one will come at the door even if you ring the bell). If you arrive at night - the elevator from the 1st floor will be closed as well. There is no elevator inside the guest house so accesibility might be an issue for PWDs or elderly. Elevator is also old so you need to keep.pressing open or the floor you want yo go to in order for it to operate. To go to Otaru Canal and the Sakaimachi St will be another long walk. So if you are in for a hearty exercise, good for you. The guest house also does not provide towel, toothbrush or sleepwear so bring your own. Room is pleasant and bed was decent. Bathroom also smelled nice and was clean. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash were provided.

Exceptional 10.0
The hostel was a little difficult to get to because of the snowy roads and it isn't immediately clear when you get there because the entrance looks a little empty but you just go upstairs and I found a great hostel with plenty of charm, excellent facilities and very comfortable, spacious room with a great bed. I stayed in the female dorm alone and it's a great size since there's only three beds there. The place was definitely better than it seems in the photos, very clean and tidy. Would recommend!!
