Regarding the bad comments on this hotel i would like to say that those people had too high of an expectation. THe hotel clearly states that bathrooms are shared, so why are they shocked? The hostel was clean, the staff friendly and extremely helpful. It is close to a tram station and we were able to take a good walk... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. This place is quaint and homely but also has a lovely social feel to it due to spacious lounge area. We stayed in a traditional private room. Rooms were lovely although slightly aged and the thermal bed sheets that they request you leave in the room were smelly so we had to take... More

It's located within walking distance of everything in Hiroshima. Only take the tram from Hiroshima station following the very clear directions on the J-hoppers website, and walk the rest of your time there. Helpful, friendly staff. They clean throughly during the day. Dorm sizes and beds are what you'd expect from a hostel. I'd stay again and recommend to anyone... More

One of my all-time favourite hostels. I've stayed here twice, two years apart, and both times the amazing staff have immediately become good friends. The rooms are lovely, with dorms formed of traditional tatami mats and bamboo hanging dividers. Very good information (and music) at reception area. The kitchen & lounge are a little narrow for large numbers to hang... More

It was actually very similar to the $150 ryokan room that we stayed in Kyoto- so we were very impressed. everything was clean, there was free wifi, the futon was comfortable and they had a kettle in the...

Great little hostel J hoppers is a great little hostel conveniently located near the main strip of Hiroshipma. I found it spotlessly clean with an excellent staff, great atmosphere and reasonably priced. I highly recommend it if you're planning to stay in Hiroshima any time soon. The location is about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station. There's a... More

Excellent, really helpful staff who answer all questions and provide lots of information. Good location from which you can walk to the main sites and to lots of bars and restaurants in town. Very near supermarket and cafes for breakfast and self catering. Small, simple and comfortable rooms.

I never thought I would be one for sleeping on the floor, but I might be a convert. If your like me and move around a lot in your sleep, but don't want to wake up the person next to you, it's the way to go. Don't knock it till you try it. It was also a really nice change... More

This place was one the best hostels in Japan. It has nice rooms, clean facilities and great staff. Very easy to get to from JR Station (via tram). It was within walking distance of most tourist sites, but the trams are so frequent and cheap we used them.
