I spent 2 nights here while visiting in May 2013 and I found it to exceed my expectations by some way!
Our check in was smooth and the clerk was very friendly, there were also a wide range of maps and information booklets in the lobby area.
Our room was very comfortable and I really liked the curtains round your bed which gave you extra privacy.
The hostel is also in a great location, a 10 minute walk from JR Hiroshima Station, 5 mins from Mazda Zoom Zoom stadium and around 20-25 mins from A-Bomb Dome, Peace Park etc.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who's travelling Japan on a budget.
