We stayed in nearly all the K's house hostels and there is a discount rewards for each time you stay so this worked well. The hostel is smaller than some of the others but it is right near all the things to see in hiroshima. The Girls at the desk were great with loads of tips on what to see,... More

K's House is approximately 20-minute walk from A-Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Museum. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful by providing directions on how to get there. We only stayed for one night and the private room we stayed in was adequate to rest our heads. However, the bedroom was on the small side with poor sound proofing -... More

We stayed in a private double room for three nights. The room was clean and nice! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a basic kitchen, a lovely living room and a nice rooftop. The location is quite good! All in all I'd definitely recommend this place to all my friends.

We had a pleasant stay at K’s House. We stayed in a private Japanese style room with a shared bathroom. The room was comfortable and warm. The bathroom could have been a little cleaner. The location was good; quite close to the train station and a short bus ride away from the peace memorial park.

Staff were very helpful with all the questions I had for them. Rooms were great with big storage lockers under the beds which kept everything neat and tidy. It was a short streetcar ride to the main area. You could walk it also, but I thought it was worth the 160 yen to get there faster and walk back if... More

After experiencing the impressive hospitality of K's House in Takayama we wondered if we would have a similar view of the Hiroshima establishment. I'm delighted to say that we did. Close to the Railway Station, away from the busy traffic, staffed by friendly and helpful people and offering the same excellent kitchen and dining facilities as in Takayama, we were... More

Totally free from dirt. A really good experience. K's Hostel is a japanese chain, I suggest to book early during summer time as they're always fully booked. It's also been our first impact with "the amazing washlet"! Suggested!

Duration of stay: 2 nights (8 August/10 August) Booking process and check-in/check-out: Booked via hostelbookers.com. Generally we prefer to make a direct booking with the place we are staying. But according to K's House website they only take direct bookings three months in advance, whereas it is no problem to book more than three months in advance through the booking... More

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
