*I was changed to work at the sister-hostel “AkiCafe Inn”, but I spent time at 36 Hostel and the staff and environment are very similar*

Aki Cafe Inn is an amazing hostel. It’s my first time in a hostel and as a volunteer, and they have set the bar incredibly high.

The work was straightforward and schedules posted at the end of the week. It’s meant to be 4 hours of work a day but it can be done quicker.

The proper staff are very helpful and easy to work with. The cleaning equipment provided, and the process you follow, streamline tasks.

Thank you AkiCafe!

My time at 36 hostel was amazing! The work was more difficult than in other Japanese hostels I worked for, but the teaching and explaining was really great and clear! Rika-San is an amazing manager and a lovely person, she welcomed me really kind.
I met amazing people and I’m really grateful for the experience <3

This was my first experience with Worldpackers and it was a perfect one. I worked at the Akicafe hostel, the biggest one out of both. The work (cleaning) was fairly easy and the hours were exactly what we agreed on and we even finished early most days. The team was amazing, Ryoko is an absolute angel. I had a lot of time to visit Hiroshima, and fall in love with the city.
The whole team was amazing, I’m happy to now call a lot of them friends. We spent a lot of time with the staff working at Hostel36 as well and went out to visit or eat together often.

There are 2 hotels, 36hostels and akicafeinn, and I worked at AkicafeInn and loved my time there! The work isn't complicated and it's a really nice place to live. Hiroshima is a beautiful city and I met a lot of incredible people during my stay. Don't hesitate to apply, it's a really great place!
