My girlfriend and I stayed at Reino Inn for one night in October 2011 as we were looking for a hostel that was close to the Peace Park and at a good price. The hostel is a 20-minute street car ride from JR Hiroshima Station, which costs 150 yen per person.
When we first arrived at Reino Inn, we were a bit confused because it felt like we were walking into a restaurant instead of a hostel. There were tables and chairs on one side of the lobby and a bar on the other. The reception desk is a bit further in. The staff were friendly and gave us directions to Miyajima (which I highly recommend visiting).
The private double room we stayed in was a little disappointing. The black and white colours didn't really do much for us - bland white walls, black hardwood floors, and black leather pull-out couch. There was also a dusty air vent right next to my pillow on the bed, which was kind of awkward. The blinds were dusty too so we didn't touch them. The bathroom was okay, but we didn't really like the shower because you had to press a button for 10 seconds of water before it turned off and you had to keep pressing it.
The only good thing about this hostel is that it's really close to the street car stop and a 5 minute walk to the Peace Park and Museum.
