눉We arrived late at night and found the place smelling distinctly of urin and bad ventilation. Our room turned out to be in a shak outside. To reach it we had to stumble in the dark through a garbage filled backyard, while Toilet and shower where situated in the main house. Bottom line: smelly, dirty, run down place and for 60$ a night heavily over priced. We have no idea what made lonely planet recommend it.
눇The guesthouse is situated a short walking distance from abashiri station.

눉The house in general has a foul smell. It smelled like it had 10 cats in the house!!! The owner and the staff were extremely unorganized and couldn't find my reservation even when I showed him a copy confirming my booking. It took him one hour to figure things out. I wanted to leave because the place smelled awful but I didn't want to risk being fined for the three nights I had already booked. Then I found out the toilet was smelly and extremely dirty. The toilet had a very worn fabric seat warmer in place. The fabric seat warmer looked like it had been there for years!! How can the toilet seat be cleaned when the fabric is permanently stuck to it? In addition, there were many hair stuck on the sheets of my blanket and the bedding because they didn't bother washing the sheets. Even though the room only cost me 2800 Japanese yen per night, I wish I had stayed in a nice hotel instead. I have been a backpacker for 15 years and this hostel is definitely one of the dirtiest places I have ever stayed. Why did Lonely Planet recommend it in the first place? They are not doing their job properly!

눉The corridor light was on all night, shining into the bedroom. If there are people walking around at night and closing doors, you can hear them. Still, incredible value for money at a very friendly and welcoming place.
눇The owner! A wonderful older Japanese man, who was always happy to help. The bathroom with extra hot water. The location.
