Located at the foot of the ski hill, about 2.5 km from the train and bus station. A local bus goes all the way there (but it's not so frequent). The place probably hasn't changed much since the 80s (!): everything feels very old and used, but it has a certain charm (reminded of my school's ski trips when I... More

I really like this place, despite being out of season having a slightly The Shinningesque feel to it, as one night there was only two of us here. The beds are really comfy, after weeks in hostels with thin futon mattresses. Good kitchen, living room and piping hot baths. It's quite a way from the train station and though there... More

Cheap accommodation, with bunk beds, shared bathroom. The place was homey, clean and comfy beds too. However it can get abit noisy when there are kids around, as rooms are not soundproof. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped us to file a complaint when a cab driver cheated our money. (It was not successful in retrieving back the... More

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
