Amazing hostel close to the main train station and only 20 min walk to the peace park. The hostel is clean and showers were incredible. The guy at the front desk while we stayed was absolutely amazing. He has a lot of positive energy and was always smiling.

This was the second K's Hostel that we stayed in and the standard of accommodation and friendliness and efficiency of the staff matched what the service we had received in Takayama. The room was compact but comfortable and the location was good, just a short walk into the main area of Hiroshima. Recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights. Very easy access from Hiroshima Station, 2 tram stops or around 7m walk. To visit Hiroshima sites, you can either get tram or walk, everything is on a 20m walk radius. We stayed in a western style twin room, on an hostel scale, this was very good. Very clean, great kitchen and common room with plenty... More

Really good Hostel. The staff were so nice and helpful (they even helped me make an origami paper crane.) The room was clean and spacious enough. I was in a 4 person dorm and it wasn't too expensive so that was nice, usually if you want something cheap it's a minimum of 8 people in the dorm so it was... More

Excellent room, cleanness, quietness, location and staff. nothing to complain about. About 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station, but there are nearby tram/train station that is 1 minutes walk away. Not really in the neighborhood for any tourist spots but everything is pretty much one tram ride away.

Spent three nights here in Aug 2015. Cleanest hostel I've ever been in! Very friendly staff and close to train station. Walking distance to dome and a-bomb park. No curfew. Highly RECOMMENDED! I mean it! Stay here if you're visiting Hiroshima:)

The location is superb to get around the city as there is a tram line near the hostel and it is also not far from the train station if you arrive here by the Shinkansen. just follow the tram line from the train station and follow the direction, you will finally find this hotel. The staff can speak good English.... More

I loved my time in Hiroshima at K's house! The staff were so friendly and helpful it was nice. They had monopoly and how to origami booklets with the paper and all sorts. It was nice having things to do in your down time at the hostel. Also just around the corner is an awesome Okonomiyaki place which is a... More

The staff was extremely helpful and nice. Our room was perfect size for 3 people. It was a very close walk from the Hiroshima station, and quite walkable to the Peace Park. It was raining one of the days we were in Hiroshima and they had umbrellas that we could borrow for the day. There were laundry facilities as well... More

As an experienced independent traveller. I know it might be offensive writing down the name of particular person in my review. However, K's House Hiroshima definately gave me the unforgetable memory while I travelling to Hiroshima as it is from one of the best hostel chain in Japan called K's House Hostel is actually within 10 minutes walk from Hiroshima...
