“The “Try HafH” option, which allows guests to stay for as low as 3,000 yen for two nights, is also available for continued registration due to its popularity.
“By registering for the subscription-based unlimited living service “HafH” (an abbreviation for “Home away from Home”), you can live in any of the 108 “Travel and Work around the World” locations across 12 countries and regions, including the 13 new locations added this month, all for a fixed price. Each location comes equipped with power outlets, Wi-Fi, and a workspace, as well as a bed. The “Try HafH” plan, which allows stays for as low as 3,000 yen for two nights, announced last month, has also received positive feedback and will continue to be offered.”
◼︎Kenji Sunada’s Comment
In preparation for the launch of our service in April 2019, we established 53 locations in 7 countries and regions so that people could catch a glimpse of the future world envisioned by HafH. However, in order to truly offer a service where users can use the “unlimited stay for a fixed fee” plan without any restrictions, we needed to expand our locations to create a world with more opportunities. Therefore, we announced our goal of reaching 100 locations by the end of 2019. Today, the HafH Network has expanded to 84 locations in 39 prefectures in Japan and 24 locations in 16 cities overseas, achieving our goal four months ahead of schedule. However, we are not satisfied yet. Our next goal is to expand the HafH Network to all prefectures in Japan and up to 50 cities in Asia and other regions by the end of the fiscal year 2019 (by March 2020). This will make “working while traveling around the world” a more tangible reality. We look forward to a world with HafH expanding even further in the future.
◼︎What kind of locations are available for “working while traveling”?
All HafH locations come equipped with power outlets, Wi-Fi, and a place to work. The main type of accommodation offered by HafH is “guesthouses” that prioritize community. For people who work while traveling, “encounters” are essential. We partner with facilities that prioritize building connections and making meaningful relationships that make people want to return. All of our facilities are safe, clean, and Instagram-worthy. Check out facility information on HafH’s official Instagram account.
◼︎On weekends, HafH offers private rooms for ¥10,000 yen/night.
With the use of HafH Coins, guests can upgrade to these private rooms without any additional cost. For example, the “Always HafH” plan offers unlimited stays for a month at a cost of 82,000 yen per month, and includes 500 HafH Coins. Guests can use these coins to upgrade to private rooms that cost more than 10,000 yen per night (weekend rates) at no additional cost. There is no expiration date for HafH Coins.
◼︎Start with the “Trial HafH” plan, which offers 2 nights for 3,000 yen/month!
HafH offers three plans – “5-day plan (A little HafH),” “10-day plan (Sometimes HafH),” and “Monthly plan (Always HafH [style])” – to suit everyone’s living style. In addition, HafH is currently accepting reservations for a limited time (end date undecided) for the “2-day plan (Trial HafH).” Incorporate travel into your daily life and try out HafH. It’s also recommended for long-term travelers.
