We were supposed to stay for one night, stayed for two as we liked it so much. Very comfortable sleeping, no noise, clean and well equipped bathrooms and toilets, friendly reception staff, very helpful. The only drawback was thin walls so you can hear your neighbours talking, but that is a norm in Japan.

K's was a great hostel located an easy walk from JR Hiroshima station. The staff were really friendly from the moment you walk in the door and speak excellent english. The hostel has great facilities including a spacious lounge and kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and small, comfortable dorms. Peace Memorial Park is a 25-30 minute walk or easily accessible on... More

Really clean and tidy place. Big powerful showers. Well stocked kitchen. Good common areas. Free coffee. Friendly and helpful staff and a location close to the tram line and walking distance from rail station. Only gripe is that the futon mattress in the Japanese-style room was a bit thin, so not the most comfortable I've slept on. Overall, I'd highly... More

Very nice hostel, has everything you might need. 7-Eleven around the corner. Not far away from the train station. Easy to find :) The Staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are clean.

I stayed here for one night during my trip to Hiroshima. The place was very clean and it was very comfortable to stay at. It is located within a short walk from JR Hiroshima station as well as few street car stops. I will surely stay here during my future trips.

Great little hostel only about a 5-10 min walk from Hiroshima station. There is a 7-eleven just around the corner which is great for getting some cheap eats (convenience store meals are actually really good in Japan) as well as drinks and snacks. There are also heaps of restaurants close by as well. Also, if you are using credit/debit cards... More

This was my first experience in a Japanese hostel and I was very impressed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful - one guy was incredibly enthusiastic in providing assitance. The hostel was very clean and well set out. Bunks have power points and large lockers underneath which are large enough to fit a big backpack. Beds are comfortable... More

As with all other K's Houses, service, rooms, bathrooms and beds are all excellent. Each bunk still has the lamp and power, as well as two coathangers which is a nice touch. The common room has a TV and plenty of space to chat and eat as well, and can get quite busy and noisy sometimes, though the noise doesn't... More

Clean, spotless modern kitchen, good vibes, great staff - friendly and great info on what and where, well situated. Everything about K's house was positive and friendly. Short walk to and from the train station, and very easy to get around from there - either by foot or tram.

Pros: Bike Rental: If you arrive early, drop your bag off, rent a bike from K's and travel around city exploring until 3pm check-in. Tram is 1minute walk and 160 yen any direction (they have change on tram) so also this is another way to get around quick. People: Super genuinely friendly people who warm you heart with greetings, origami,... More
