Great place. The twin room is very nice (hard mattress) conveniently if you travel with backpacks as you only sleep im the room. The staff is super friendly. They help you washing the clothes (300¥ with detergent), rent you bikes and recommend you places to eat. The terrace is a plus.

Stayed here for A-Bomb day and had a lovely experience at K's house Hiroshima. We arrived late but the staff had provided us with clear instructions to be able to enter and check in the following day. This is rare in Japan as most hostels have curfews- we even got to pay after we experience A-Bomb day the following afternoon.... More

The place is cool, well equipped, clean, well located. But what really stands out for us is the staff - very friendly, competent, good English, going out of there way to accommodate your needs. Thank you all for that. Would very much recommend the place. Their advice on food, shopping and shiatsu massage was great (btw try the shiatsu massage... More

Nice and clean hostel with friendly staff and a nice kitchen. Wifi was free but use of the internet cost 100 yen per half hour after the first half hour which was free. Convenient location near the tram stop and 8 minutes walk from the main train station. Half an hour to the atomic bomb dome and castle or 10... More

A great place to stay, with good tram access to the train/bus station and inner city areas. This hostel has a spacious common/dining area adjoining a kitchen. I like the DVD library! Upstairs, the air conditioned dormitories have large lockers for each person (enough to fit a suitcase). The bathrooms are on the second floor, and very clean. Possible with... More

I had stayed in K's house in Kyoto before so I decided to go to the one in Hiroshima, too, and I did not regret it. As clean as the other one and the staff really helped me out, calling bus companies and figuring out how to get to my next destination. Thank you very much for that! The rooms... More

Disappointed... booked a private room with ensuite; mistake! It is what it is, a backpackers place. I don't know about the dorms, but its a bad idea to get their rooms. Pricey to start, uncomfortable bed, one awfully bright light, mini-bathroom, even for Japan's standard and SUPER thin walls. You can hear everything and everyone, clearly. Every flushes, every snores,... More

Excellent kitchen facilities Comfortable bed Clean and well cared for Located near the station and a half hour's walk from the peace park This is the second K's house I've stayed in and I have the feeling that they'll all be very comfortable places to stay

We stayed here 2 nights. The place was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm room. The beds have locked cupboards along the floor, which would hold a large suitcase or 2 backpacks. The issue I had with these, was that I was sleeping on the top bunk, and in order to open... More
