I had an amazing time at the hostel. The Staff is realy nice and the Helpers living place is the best. We slept in the Annex building where we had our own shower, Kitchen and Washing machine. Its the moste Private and spacios place for helpers i've been. Nevertheless i still had many social contacts.

Thanks for joining our hostel!
Henry was very diligent and did a great job of cleaning and communicating with the other staff.
I also really like his openness to try different food cultures.
I hope he will visit our hostel again someday, he is very kind!



My time at the hostel was an amazing experience. It's a place filled with wonderful and fantastic people who make you feel welcomed and at home. The work, consists of basic housekeeping, which never took that long. So if you want to live the Sapporo life; you're going to have plenty of time for that! Living in Sapporo is really great. If you love the bustling city life, you have Susukino always filled to the brink with friendly people, or if you like the nature side more, then lucky you! You're in Hokkaido ;) During my stay, I got introduced to a lot of locals which really made my stay!

Had a really great experience volunteering at the hostel. The staff was welcoming and super friendly which made my time there a whole lot better. The cleaning tasks were fairly simple and with mostly around 2-3 hours of work each day, I had plenty of time to explore the city and relax. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Sapporo and experience the Hokkaido lifestyle.

I had an amazing experience at the hostel, the team welcomed me very well and made me feel very comfortable. The work is very easy and we are often freed early, and during busy time we receive help. If you are looking for a fun experience in Sapporo look no further, here's the one.

The hostel are great! The staff are really friendly and welcoming, and sometimes the guests are very friendly too. Instead of being in a dorm, you'll stay in a nearby house share but it's a only about a 10 min walk. The work consists of cleaning the beds, bathrooms, and toilets. Sometimes you'll be asked to help with other small tasks. If you're interested in staying in Sapporo for a while, I definitely recommend it. Sapporo itself is a nice city with a lot of great food, and the area that the hostel is in is convenient for getting around Sapporo and to nearby areas.
