Working and living at K's House Ito was just awesome. The hostel is beautiful! The place has a traditional japanese culture vibe, but at the same time is super laid back and cool. The staff team is the best, they're very welcoming and make you feel at home. The work is easy, but requires dedication - if you are willing to, you can learn a lot about japanese work ethics and culture along the way. I stayed at K's House Ito for one month and was heartbroken when I left, wishing I could stay longer. Definetly the best hostel I've ever been to and a place I hope to be back to soon! Lots of love ❤️

It's an amazing place, the staff makes you feel very welcome every day all-day long, tasks are not hard to do (but i'llnever reach the high japanese standards!), food is yummi! and boss sometimes cooks for the staff (delicius). Onsen everyday :D
buuut (everything has a but) it's not allowed to hear music while working, and the place get's really hot during summer! the city is quite small, so after a week everything goes to caching pokemon.

The most amazing, cozy, welcoming, beautiful place I have ever worked in. Coming back as full time staff I loved it so much. Onsens, staff that makes you feel like family, beautiful Japanese countryside, the sea, the mountains. Job is not bad, people respect each other, guests are kind, many friends made, many more to meet. Best hostel of my life. Hands down, I felt like I was in the bathhouse from spirited away. I consider this place one of my homes in this world.
