On this page of our The Medium guide, you'll find a description of Travel to the hotel, the third stage of the game. Here, we have described all the interactions you need to make in order to get to Niwa hotel. Your main task is to get to the door and find a screwdriver that will help you get inside. However, you can perform some minor interactions that will help you understand the plot and increase the immersion.
After leaving the funeral house, you will get on a motorcycle and travel to the Niwa hotel. Reaching it, however, will be more problematic than you might expect. You won't be able to simply open the gate and move on.
You must first enter the small room on the left and peek through the boarded-up window. You'll see a character walking down the road. This will prompt the heroine to move on.
There is a container just behind the building that will help you proceed. You just have to jump on it and then climb up the wall. Jump down and you will be on the other side.
Going through the forest
The path leading through the forest is straight and linear. It's impossible to get lost here. You just have to get off the way and use the sight. This way you will see the route you are supposed to take.
In addition to the tracks on the ground, you may also notice a few of them on trees. You can walk up to them and examine to, e.g. read the carved signs on the trees.
This part of the road ends near an old fort. To get past it, you must enter the gap, near which you will find a warning sign.
Get to the other side
After entering the cave, you must squeeze between the rocks. This is the only such section in this part of the map. The rest of the way is fairly straightforward and open.
As soon as you squeeze between the rocks, your character will connect with the spirit world. Remember that you have no control over it. The connection to the spirit world will be preceded by a strong headache.
Head left to reach the chasm. Both characters must squeeze through the narrow debris to reach the rock located at the end of the cave. From it, you can gain energy to use spirit strike and spirit shield.
Return to the central part of the cave. To get out of it, you need to use the spirit strike right next to the power box. This will open the door and let you out of the spirit world.
Do this to unlock the Conduit achievement. You can only get it at this point in the game.

The way to the hotel
Once you get to the other side of the forest, you must again follow the tracks. It's nothing complicated – the path is straight and your only obstacle is the tree. You have to squeeze under it.
When you arrive at the hotel, you will connect with the spirit world. After that, you will be able to explore the parking lot.
To go through further, you need a screwdriver. You will find it in the red car that is located in the middle of the square, between the bushes.
All you have to do is lift the mask – you will notice the item immediately. Take the screwdriver – without it, you will not be able to open the hotel entrance.
There are a few collectibles in the parking lot. You will find their descriptions on a separate page of the guide.
- Echoes of a mysterious caller.
Entering the hotel
To get to the hotel you must first use the screwdriver to open the side entrance and move out one container.
Keep pushing the container until it is right at the entrance. Thanks to this, you will be able to jump on the metal part just above the door. From there, all you have to do is break the window, and you will get inside the building.
