Great stay, great location, friendly staff!
We had a great stay at Otaru Yado. Easy, 5 minute walk from the Otaru JR terminal, partially under the covered street. If you’re skiing Kiroro while you’re in town, the Hokkaido Resort Liner has a stop directly across the street at a neighbouring hotel making it easy to get to the hill if you book through them! (Otherwise you can book through the Kiroro resort website and catch a bus right at the Otaru Station). Location was great, really good restaurants nearby and the canal within walking distance. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and stored our ski bag behind reception so we had more space in our bedroom. The shared bathrooms were insanely clean! Coin laundry machines were available for use as well. Cozy common area and kitchen beside the reception. We’re not usually ones to complain about the beds, but the bed in our double private room was extremely hard. This was our only complaint for our stay. We stayed for 4 nights, and I wouldn’t let the hard beds stop you from staying here (after all, most beds we’ve stayed in in Japan seem to be pretty hard overall)!

An awesome stay in Otaru.
The hostel location is near to all amenities such as restaurant, train terminal, shopping area, etc. The hostel is clean and still new and staff were very friendly.

Highly recommended
The hostel is newly opened in Oct. During my stay (4days), my room was not fully occupied so it seems that not many people are aware of it yet. Staff are super nice and friendly, they could speak English as well. Bathroom and clean and beds are comfortable (but it's quite similar to tatami not sure if everyone likes it). They do provide complimentary coffee/tea/green tea in public area for self-service. Location is great and it takes about 10mins to reach famous attractions nearby, e.g. Otaru Canel, Sakaimachi, etc. It's also close to Otaru JR station. Highly recommended for everyone.
