This place is terrific. The highlight of the experience without a doubt is the people of Miyazaki, touring Aoshima and it's surroundings, surfing and, finally, food; in that order. The work is standard sheet changing and housecleaning. The load varies greatly between summer season and winter season. Finally, the host is amazing. Toshi is the kind of guy you can sit with and have a chill conversation any time after work. He's also super serviceable and super honest. I recommend working here to a very specific kind of people: responsible workers with a laid back attitude and a passion for nature
Its a awesome place near the beach. Nice hostel in a nice area. The work its really simple and not much... Toshi And André are two hell of a guys and you Will enjoy the Time with them. Nice chats about music with André by the way.. in your free Time (wich Is a lot) you can explore aoshima's beach, the main shrine of the town, swin, learn surf , visit the local onsen, or explore the beautyfull citys from around. The community from the town its really cool And you Will feel at home.
Best deicion ever to come to Aoshima. The island is small but beautiful, authentic and full of the cozy community spirit I was hoping for. The best way to experience local life. My host and owner of the place Toshi is the most wonderful host. Kind, helpful, embodying the perfect Japanese spirit. I'll definitely come back next year.
