    It was easy to find, near the train station and bus stop if taking the bus from the airport. I liked that it provided towels, bath mat, toothbrush, toiletries, slippers, and a pair of pajamas. The shower room was also spacious. the bed was comfortable.

    I would’ve rated it excellent, but the place would’ve been cleaner if we could leave our shoes outside the bedroom. The curtain was also very noisy. My roommates were not very mindful of others. In the wee hours, it was very noisy when they were drawing the curtains. Constant drawing of curtains kept me awake. In addition, it was very hot and dry inside the room as we could not adjust the room temperature to accomodate others. Maybe change the curtains? It would have been a comfortable stay if my roommates were mindful of others. The person on top of my bed was fixing her luggage on her bed and it kept me awake. When she fell asleep she snored very loudly. One guest also put her big luggage in front of my bed which was supposedly my space for my luggage. It was a little difficult to move. Maybe a reminder would be great so other guests would be mindful of other guests. The food downstairs was a bit pricey and the menu did not have a wide selection especially their breakfast set.

    A little tricky finding the hotel despite the directions emailed me not helped by the lack of street signs in Sapporo. But once there Potmum was excellent, splendid accommodation. Well-appointed dorm room, restroom, hot showers, quiet, comfortable space. Friendly, helpful staff — at the front desk and housekeeping — would stay at Potmum again. Appreciated that my Visa card was billed in yen with no extra surcharge. WiFi was generally very good though there were frequent, frustrating signal drops if only for a few seconds, enough to muck up in-progress airline ticket purchases, hotel reservations, etc. One area that was a bit confusing for this first-time visitor to Japan was that my hotel bed came with toothbrush, toothpaste, towel, pajamas — all things I normally travel with — but the hotel lounge area with its microwave, electric kettle, frig and sink, came with no utensils, plates, cups, nothing with which to prepare and eat a meal, not even a paper towel. But I guess that’s why we travel, to see how others live.

    Clean, spacious facilities and relatively cheap price make it attractive at first

    At night, in the dormitory 2075, I was well bitten multiple times by bed bugs. I turned the lights on and saw a couple of them on the wall & mattress. August 2019. It looks like they know it and try to get rid of them, but I'm disappointed they still offer the room for travellers. Apparently they don't know how bad bed bugs really are.

    Coffee shop in the hall was awsome, the eco ticket for a free coffee is a great idea

    Hotel sorroundings are just a little of restaurants, if you wanna have a dinner or lunch you should walk for miles or get a taxi

    Location-wise it's close to the subway station which is very convenient heading to the busy downtown in just 5-10mins. It's located in a relatively quiet residential district. So if you want a balance between convenience and quietness. This is a good choice. It also got a cafe/bar in the lobby which is quite comfy as well. They serve good coffee and alcohol.

    Not really much but if you are looking for food/restaurants near the hotel, then you might need to walk far.
