Very easy cleaning work that will only take you 3 hrs a day for only a couple of days a week. Friendly staff and amazing host who treated me very well and was very flexible. Thank you for hosting me!




The experience in Cabosu Hostel was great!! Beppu is a quiet city and with all the charm of Japan. Tjere are onsen everywhere and a nice area with good izakayas where the staff used to go together. Moreover, Ikeda san and his wife made us feel like at home. I can’t thank them enough!!!




I stayed 3 weeks at Cabosu and i had an amazing time, the job is easy and only takes 3h per day. People a friendly and i made a lot of new friends there.
Beppu is a quiet city but if you search enough there is always something to do and of course the onsen is are amazing. You should definitly come to Cabosu!

ThIs hostel was very nice to stay at. If you're looking for a party atmosphere this is not for you. If you are looking for beauty and peace I would suggest it :) the mountains, ocean, natural springs and nature are beautiful. The owner and staff are all friendly and willing to help in anyway. The work is 3 hours a day and very light. The kitchen is huge with lots of utensils. Over all a very nice and peaceful expierence!




Working at Kabosu House was super fun. I learned a lot and felt very good working with them. Work is easy to go through and coleys are super helpful and kind.
Beppu is a very interesting place and lots of beautiful places to visit are arround. Very recommendable!
