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.

Close to A-Dome, good tram (streetcar) connection to Hiroshima station and to Miyajima (tram or tram+train for JR Pass holders). Staff is very helpful and speaks very good English. There is a plenty of information available about the surrounding area. We stayed at Japanese style double rooms, with a/c and fan. No complaints. :) Note:There are only three shared showers... More

This was the first hostel we stayed at in Japan so we were really, really happy with it. We didn't realize that most places in Japan were this nice. However, still one of the better places we have stayed at in our two year round the world trip. First, right after I booked I got an email with perfect walking... More

Great location, friendly staff, nice room too. You can ask the staff for any food suggestion around, she told me a nice okonomiyaki house, Hiroshima specialty not the best one but it's good. Great value for money and you can rent bicycle too if you want.

I was the worst possible guest. I came late, lost my key and didn't have my passport at check in. J-Hoppers were very accommodating on all fronts! Great friendly staff and a good location. Nice rooms and good showers, great value for money.

Great location, easy access to trams, loads of local eateries. Only 5 mins walk to the A-Bomb Dome and Memorial Park. Plenty of tourist info including a map they had prepared which showed recommended local restaurants and the type of food they sold. Showers were clean, tidy and well maintained but were on 5 second timers that you had to... More

I found this hostel great value for money. The location was fine, within walking distance of the atomic dome. I liked the staff, and the place was well ordered. The room was small, but not ludicrously so, and the shared bathroom facilities were fine. They have a roof terrace available, and a front porch, where you can sit and have... More

We spent 3 nights in J-hoppers while visiting the fantastic city of Hiroshima. After spending a lot of our time in dorms in other hostels we spent a little extra here to get a double private room. Our room was on the 4th floor, a Japanese style Tatami room. So essentially a Futon on the floor. It was a reasonable... More

I was very pleased with this hostel. As an independent traveller, I felt safe and comfortable here. The staff were also very helpful with directing me to places I should see and foods I should eat. Speaking of foods, there is a small restaurant down the street from the hostel that makes Hiroshima's famous savory noodle pancake called Okonomiyaki. Do... More
