The facility was extremely clean and seemed pretty new, and it was easy to get around the city thanks to its great location. Definitely recommend this place, and will most likely stay again if I ever get the chance to escape to northern Japan again!

Each bunk was spacious and clean with the lockbox readily available nearby. Bathroom and showering area was separate from the dorm which was incredible compared to other hostels I’ve stayed at. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere. Very cozy, I would come back again if I return to Sapporo.

8/10 Very good

A location is great! A Japanese room for 4 persons is great but too small for 4 persons. Moreover, the elevator is available to 7th floor. So you have to climb up to 8th floor. The cleanliness is great.

Grids Sapporo review
Grids is a fantastic place to stay when visiting Sapporo. The location is close to shops, bars, restaurants and train. The staff are the friendliest I've met while traveling. They are kind, helpful and fun. I would highly recommend staying here.
