Untapped Hostel

Our hostel has a very friendly atmosphere and besides providing dorm beds, you can use the facilities in the building for free.
The actual working hours are about 3 to 4 hours, and you can do some sightseeing in the afternoon after your cleaning job is done.
We also have a lot of interaction with the staff and guests staying at the hostel, so we routinely share information about recommended restaurants, etc.
Also, since you can request a vacation, some people make two or three consecutive holidays to go sightseeing in a place a little far from the city.

Each of our hostel staff has their own personality and they are all friendly. Some are good at cooking, some are knowledgeable about good restaurants, some love music, some love art, and so on, We have a text cleaning manual for cleaning and duties, and for the first few days, staff will clean with you while teaching you how to clean, so even those who have never worked in a hostel before can easily join us. Our hostel and the bookstore attached to it often host events, so you can participate in live music and food parties.

The hostel is nice and cozy with a cute restaurant downstairs. The staff are friendly and the owner was a good boss. The work was fair and I never worked more than 3 hours. I have given 4 stars instead of 5 because my first bunk was in the middle of the room without any natural sunlight so it was noisy and I didn’t sleep very well. Also the hostel wasn’t very social so I had to find friends in the city. Overall though I had a lot of free time to explore Sapporo and the surrounding areas and it would be a good place for someone to practice their Japanese.

My experience at Untapped Hostel was amazing. The staff and leadership are welcoming, friendly, and flexible. I was properly trained for the work, and the expectations were clear and reasonable. Typically, I would work from 11am-2pm-ish, depending on the amount of work. The main tasks were cleaning and setting the beds, cleaning the toilet and showers, and vacuuming. There is always a staff member to help direct the volunteers and available to answer questions. I would work 5 days/week, and they were generous in granting flexibility with certain days off. Sapporo is also a great city to live.

I really enjoyed my time at Untapped Hostel, the staff is really friendly and easy going, while the tasks are quite easy. The hostel is really well placed (20 min walk to the city center) and you'll have much free time to visit Hokkaido. I'm really going to miss you all!!!!
