A quiet neighbourhood. Security is good. Hostel is well-maintained and organised. Owner is friendly and access is easy with the map and directions provided. 10 min walk + luggage to the hostel is easy if the weather is good. Otherwise, it is better to have a backpack. Visit the ramen and Kinotoya sweet shop recommended!

Spent 5 days at this lovely accommodation. Had a very homely feel to it and place is well maintained. Staff are very friendly and able to speak good english. Transport is also reasonably good (5-10 minutes walk from the station) and 20-30 minutes away from JR Sapporo. The beds are comfy and the place is well insulated from the cold... More

We stayed at Ino's place for 5 nights during our trip in October. It's a great, very affordable guesthouse with very friendly English speaking staff and a warm atmosphere. It is located a short walking distance from subway stations for easy transport. If you are not sure what or where to experience in Sapporo the staff are more than happy... More

I began the first step of my semi-world journey in Hokkaido, Japan, and Ino`s Place has truly spoiled me. After flying from SF to LA, to Tokyo Narita, to New Chitose, then hopping on the JR to Shin-Sapporo, then on the subway, then walking four blocks to Ino`s Place, I couldn`t have picked a better place to land after such...

Located about 8 mins from the train station this was a good backpackers to stay in. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room sufficiently clean and the lounge area a great place to relax and have a tea/coffee/beer.

This is a nice and homely place to stay. Clean too. It's a bit further out of the city but then I guess the space and cleanliness makes up for it. It's almost a shame I was out everyday as I didn't really make use of the nice facilities they had! I stayed 3 nights in a single room which... More

I stayed two nights here a few weeks ago and it was wonderful. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the walls of the place are lined with travel books and brochures. It's not downtown but in East (I think) Sapporo near the subway line. The best thing for me was that they were flexible. They let me come early... More

I am stil suffering the itchyness after one week now. I guess it's the from the bed in the shared room.Once I reported to the... More

Great hostel with warm services in the winter time. Very clean and I love the common facilities (showers, toilets, kitchen, reference library) there. As it's quite popular, book early especially in the busy periods (New Year, Snow Festival). The owners are friendly, attentive, and very helpful with tons of information about real Sapporo things. Near to many dining alternatives and... More
