We were plagued by bad weather in Furano - so most of the time we spent in the town was actually cozing up by the fireplace and watching old Disney VCR's in Alpine Backpackers. The staff's level of English was not so great - but they were very lovely and we didn't really care and just enjoyed the cozy and... More

Stayed in this accommodation in July with my sister. We got upgraded to 2 bunk-beds room for our stay. The location is quite good, in the middle of 2 bus stops of the Lavender-Go bus. There is a 7-11 nearby too. The room is equipped with fan so it's quite hot during the day but not problem at night. Bed... More

Alpine Backpackers has pretty well everything a traveller needs - a warm welcome, comfortable beds, good lounge, well equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms, free wifi, and an excellent breakfast for a very good price (JPY 500). The location is a little way out of town, not so good - but perfectly OK in the summer season, probably better in the winter... More

The place was very lovely and I would have given it a higher score if not for the fact that it is quite difficult to access without a car. I would recommend this budget accommodation to those who are driving - it is nice, lovely and quiet to get a good sleep at night. However, for those without a car,... More

We are total in 6 people however 6 dorm room was occupied hence we select 4 persons and 2 persons room, appreciated as they charged per head as we expect the 2 persons in one room will be higher but its not. The lodge and room is very clean and ambient is warm. We stay there when it is winter... More

we booked a whole room for five of us. both exterior and interior look good. like their restaurant most - nothing compares to a light healthy breakfast with lovely sunshine coming through the window over the terrace. travellers need to share bathroom, toilet and kitchen. the place and sink for teeth-brushing is very open - remind me the old days...

We stayed at Alpine Backpackers for night during our time in Furano. We were going to spend additional nights but decided to look elsewhere instead. For starters, they had no double beds in the private rooms, just bunk beds. My wife and I decided that we will no longer stay in places that don't have double beds. Life is too... More

This hostel is a great option if you are looking for a budget bed in Furano. The location is great of you are looking to ski as it is only a 2min walk from the ski slopes. It is a little far from the town centre and station but there are buses that stop nearby. There also plenty of restaurants... More

This is the first time i stayed in the dorm. I choose to stay at the dorm because the accommodatiion in Japan are mostly costy. Upon entering the room, I need to lay my own bed, i.e.covering the mattress with bed sheet, pillow case on the upper deck bed as the lower decks had already occupied. Is it a norm... More

Had a lot of fun in the town of Furano and this backpackers is great value in a superb location. After a long day of boarding though, the beds left much to be desired. If you are OK with a very thin mattress and tiny pillow you will cope. I had sore hips every morning! I plan to look for... More
