Stay away in the winter
1. This place is a bar on the first floor. It can get quite loud at night. 2. There is NO heat in the rooms. So think twice if you’re visiting Sapporo in the winter 3. The staff is friendly and the bar is pretty nice place to hangout 4. There is a train station two blocks away. Close to nijo market also. 5. Bed is very firm.

Central, private
Very clean hostel, great location. Narrow access to some bunks, nice privacy curtain but little space for your gear (locker good for small items). Staff fine, willing to help but not much English if you have random questions. Limited kitchen, no one around at check out, smoking allowed in common areas? Lovely looking place.
