The staff were very friendly. he room was clean and the on-suite bathroom was functional. However, the room was barely big enough for our 3 shikibuton / kakebuton beds and we had to stack up the luggage.

This place is about 10 minutes walking distance from Hakodate station and very easy to locate. The single room is very spacious and clean. Bathroom is huge and facilities are great. There is a musty smell in the room however it did not bother me as much. Overall a good place to stay with a great value.

Amazing place!!”
To be honest, i booked this place very last minute as plan changed due to several reason. therefore, i did not whole any expectation and i just want a place to sleep and prepare for the early rush to sapporo. However, the owner here really warmed me up. I was sitting at the living room at late night due to insomnia, since it was late night, the heater is off as well(Its winter season). while i was sitting at there and playing some games on my phone, the owner walk to me and ask me if i need the heater to be switch on, i quickly reject his offer as i don't feel cold at that time and i was going up to my room soon. the next morning, i woke at around 5A.M as i need to rush to sapporo (Ticket at 7AM), i quickly pack up my stuffs and heating up the bento i bought yesterday, the old uncle (i guess its owner) come out again and talk to me politely, it was really heart warming, although i am not a japanese expert, i manage to communicate with him with some simple "nihongo" and gestures, he was extremely friendly, sharing his life event showing his politeness, when i was about to leave, he send me out and bow-ed to me. although i was just here for less than 8hour but i do find this place extremely warm. I really hope to meet that uncle again and share my story, my countries culture with him! really a nice place to stay i would say!

Luxurious outlook, Japanese room inside.”
~10mins walk from JR station, the hostel was not difficult to find. Owner of hostel was very welcoming, tried to explain to guests about different sightseeing sites in Hokodate with the best English he had. Appreciating! The house was no longer new but obviously under good care. Seldom could I see such a luxurious design not in a hotel, but an ordinary Japanese-run hostel. Nonetheless, furniture and decorations in the lobby and in rooms and toilets fascinated me with their details! Whist some major living culture of Japanese were kept in place, such as the Tatami and the big tub of hot water for relaxation after shower. I'm loving it! Although the single room I had appear just enough for 1 person, I still found my stay very comfortable :)

Quaint, quiet, great amenities”
I had a great stay. Owner knows English, everyone was nice. Room was clean, had electric bed to keep warm in autumn. Bathroom was clean, toilet seats were warm, modern. Every thing you need available and then some. I just docked some points on location because there are nearer places to the train station like Smile Hotel. But if you don't mind walking one or two blocks, Puppy Tail is a great place to stay! The lobby is tiny, but don't be put off. Rooms and bathrooms are totally awesome.

5 minute walking distance from JR station. Good for stay for a night in Hakodate. Bedroom is clean and tidy. But the rooms are not noise-proof, luckily not many people stayed in that night. Also, rooms are on the second floor and no elevator, you need to take the baggages upstairs.

Good and comfortable stay”
The room was comfortable and clean, altough there isn't much space left when you lay out all the futons. I had to put our luggage bags in wardrobe instead. The toilet is outside along the corridor, so it is inconvenient especially at night for the children. However, it is very clean. The room uses a kerosene heater so the smell can get to you sometimes, but since it is in mid-winter, we cant do without it.

Very clean and simple modern ryokan with a great location (quiet and feels away from any city hustle & bustle) just 5 to 7 mins walk to the JR station. We had a room with an attached bathroom and it was small but normal-sized for Japanese modern ryokan standards. Owner, Fukui-San was very friendly and helpful. Even driving our family of 3 adults to the train station upon our checkout. Highly recommend.

Friendly staff and a comfortable stay! ”
Checked in for one night into a Japanese-style family room and two Western-style twin rooms (seven of us in total). Staff very friendly and helpful! Our rooms were on the second floor. One of our party could not walk well and thus used a wheelchair which we were able to leave downstairs. Fortunately he could manage some stairs on own, else would not have been able to stay. The property is a few minutes walk from the train station in the opposite direction of the Morning Market, but not so far as to cause any problems. In fact, it was a lot closer to the Nissan rental car company office that we picked up our car from (which is a station location, but actually a block away from the station). The Japanese style room came with three futons that we unrolled at night and rolled up again in the morning. We asked and got rooms with private bath which were fine. For the price, we would definitely stay here again!

As we are not particularly keen on Ryokans, we selected PuppyTail because everything else was quite expensive. We were surprised this time! Spacious, well equipped and well kept room, with a very nice bathroom (not shared!) and, a very lovely staff. The owner of the place even gave us a lift back to the station! Highly recommended!

Convenient location and value for money”
Walking distance to Hakodate JR station (around 5 mins), morning seafood market and a bunch of cozy Japanese restaurants nearby. The room is not very big but clean, Japanese style rooms are bigger.
The pension is run by a family and they are all very nice and helpful, they would answer to all your request and questions efficiently. They offer breakfast options but we didn't take that as the morning seafood market is just around 10 mins away, and you can go get some fresh sashimi and roasted King crab for breakfast. Basic facilities like car park, washing machine, vending machine are all there. Just you better inform the host if you are going back late as they would lock the door of the pension after mid night. There are cats in the pension but they are all locked up at day time, but if you love cats the host would be willing to take them out and let you play a bit with them.
