Value for money and friendly host”
The house look old from outside but inside was very modern. Free WIFI was provided in the public area and in the room.
The host was very pleasant and spoke very well English. She cooked for me during my stay at her house. Frankly speaking, the location was not near to the attactions like Otaru Canal. It needs to take about 20-30 minutes walk. However, you can take bus in front of the 7-Eleven convenient store where just next to Emina Backpackers. Basically, it is super convenient. I really strongly recommend this place for stay. Will visit again!

1. Friendly and accomodating staff. 2. She spoke good Englsh. 3. It came through and did the job when I had trouble booking anyplace in Sapporo.
The owner was helpful and friendly and although the place was small, it is what I expected from a backpackers hotel. It was a basic place to stay. It was about a 7-10 minute taxi from Otaru main trainstation basically straigh down one road.

The owner is fantastic. She let me and my friend check in at like 8 in the morning which is unusual for the hostels I've stayed at in Japan. She even gave us towels to use when we realized we didn't have ours. The room was just bunk beds but you had access to wifi, showers, bathrooms, fridges, and all the things you would need. Not the pent house suite or anything, but a nice place to stay.

バックパッカーにはうってつけの宿”
小樽駅からバスで10分ほど揺られたところにある、古めかしい民家がこの宿。 一階は談話室になっており、二階に男性、女性それぞれの部屋があります。部屋には二段ベッドが二つ並んでいました。 昔ながらの北海道の家を使っており、とても懐かしい感じがします。 襖がガタガタだったり、床がややななめっているのはご愛嬌。なにより出迎えてくださったここの奥さんはとても親切で気さくな方でした。 場所は住宅街ですが、宿のすぐ裏手にコンビニがあって便利です。 お金をかけずに旅行したい人、旅先での交流を楽しみたい人にはぴったりの宿だと思います。 また小樽を訪れることがあれば、ぜひ利用したいです。

같이 온 지인은 아라시 콘서트 때문에 숙소가 꽉 차는 불상사가 생겨 하루만 머물다 삿포로로 넘어갔고, 본인은 이틀 머물렀음. 전형적인 일본식 가정집을 개조해서 민숙으로 만든곳인데, 나무계단 등 고즈넉한 분위기가 살아있는 곳. 남자용 숙소는 네명, 여자용 숙소는 여섯명이 머물수 있고, 1층에는 공용 공간이 있는데 숙소 주인장의 아이들도 같이 지내서인가 애들 보는 재미도 나름 쏠쏠함. 첫날밤 여주인님과 가볍게 맥주 한두캔을 마시며 이얘기 저얘기 하면서 나름 재미있는 경험을 했음. 다만, 일본 옛날식 가정집에서 풍겨나오는 그 분위기가 싫다면 피하시길.
