The Experience

Come and join our team! In our guesthouse, we need helpers to do the cleaning tasks 5 days/week or receptionists 2 days/week depending on whether they can speak Japanese or not. If you want to help in another field, such as creating videos or advertisements on social media, it is adjustable for the work shift. Accommodation is with our guests, thus it is easy to make new friends from all over the world. A shared kitchen and free rice are provided

I spent 2 incredible weeks in the guest house! The hostel is very social and i had a lot of fun with my fellow volunteers and other guests! The work is light and usually takes around 3h. The location is great, just in front of the Hiroshima station. Special thanks to Ryoko-san for being so kind and patient! I will definitely come back one day!! Thanks for everything 🙌🏻

Everybody was super welcoming and nice. While working the time flies and everybody is very helpful most of the time you even finish earlier. I met a lot of nice people and other volunteers so I had an incredible nice time there. :) I definitely recommend it.

I had a great time at the guest house! The owner and the main cleaning staff are super kind. They are also very flexible to accommodate to my holiday planning, so I could do some trips a bit more far away as well. The work is usually about 3 hours, demanding, but everyone takes pride to provide an incredibly clean environment and finish earlier still. In one week, I was the only helper unfortunately, but the staff took care that I didn't work a minute longer.. 😌 Again, I'd like to thank everyone so much who made my stay so memorable! I'll miss you over there and will surely return in the future!! 💛

Great experience at aki café. Met wonderful people and the hostel is very lovely. It's even better if you can work at the reception and the cleaning at the same time, it allows you to work only two days a week. They are really flexible about the schedule it's very nice. The hostel is a great place to live in, you can feel like home. Free rice and you have all you need to cook. You can be able to meet a lot of other travellers (mostly foreigners). Thanks to ryoko San who is very sweet.
