“Minami Otaru Station” is the nearest station to our hostel, BUT I recommend to get off at “Otaru Station“

Otaru Station is the main station of Otaru and is a historic building.
If you come to Otaru for the first time, You should start your trip from Otaru Station.

Otaru Station is equipped with elevators and escalators. Good for heavy luggages.
But “Minami Otaru Station” is not equipped.
In Otaru Station there are International tourist information office, lots of coin lockers and souvenir shops with sushi bar.

Otaru station is farther for about 5 minutes to our hostel than Minami Otaru Station.
