I can't describe my experience in Hostel Ann with just a few words and I can't thank them enough for this amazing experience. Ann-san will always be an amazing person for me and all the Staff who helped me in many ways are always going to be in my heart. Not only as friends, also as family to me. I was very nervous and scared to try something new for the first time and doing this in a different country. But I'm glad my first experience was in Hostel Ann and I can't wait to go back and help them again. It's definitely worth trying here! You can't miss this place!

I couldn't chose a better place to start my trip in Japan. Staff is beyond nice, everyone made me feel more than welcome and always willing to help me. The work is really easy and the guests at the hostel are always really nice. Asaco, Shion, Tommy and Josh (the staff members) and also Ann (owner-san) were so cool with me and i'm so thankful and happy with all of you, that i just hope to see you in the near future. 100% recommended and will go once more to visit you! Thanks for everything, you are all awesome!!! =)
