“Japan style hostel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The hostel is close to A-dome and Peace Memorial Museum and 2 minutes walk from stop of tram line for JR station. I booked a female 4-dormitory room tatami japanise style for one night and actually had the room all for myself. The hostel is clean and confortable, but it is a bit old, should have a general re-style. There are 4 floors, but no lift and steps are quite narrow, so think of it if you have big heavy luggage. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

This was a lovely, friendly hostel with clean rooms, bike hire and decent wi-fi. The kitchen was fully stocked and the common area was japanese style with two pc's and was the perfect place to meet other travellers. This hostel is sited very close to the A-dome and Peace Memorial Museum. I stayed in the female shared dorm which was Japanese style and quieter than the shared dorm which I stayed in on my first night. Would recommend this to all travellers.

This place was lovely and quiet unit I had too much wine + beer and made too much noise so I apologise to j- hoppers and other travellers for that. Good people and overall great hostel, guess I was a bit overexcited. Hiroshima is a great city!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The hostel is a few stops on the tram line from JR Hiroshima and easy to find. Staff were very friendly. We booked a private twin room, which was traditional Japanese style tatami room. Spacious with aircon, futon was comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was the way it felt like a university dormitory- lots of serial travellers and japanophiles treating it as a youth hostel. I travel to different parts of Japan each year and I don't do it to make friends and having cooking clubs in the kitchen. Plus I don't really like having to queue for the hairdryer in the morning. Other than that it was fine and good value for money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Stayed one night in September as a couple. Well run place catering primarily to the backpacking crowd. If you're looking for a quiet place to rest this isn't it. If you are outgoing and like to meet other young travellers then this is your place. It was pretty noisy until 10pm when the quiet time begins although people were still being loud prompting one guest to yell out at them to quiet down.

The location is ideal for visiting the peace Park, a 5 - 10 minute walk. To get to the place you take a tram for about 20 minutes and costs only 150yen . I imagine walking would take an hour.

Had to wait for toilet and sinks at 8am as there appears to be a high ratio of people to facilities.

Love the beer vending machine in the kitchen.

Fine for a short stay especially if you are into meeting other backpackers and it's very affordable.

Location is OK, 30 min by tram to station but it is very close to Peace Park. Hard to find without a map. No elevator in the building.

Facilities are OK for what you pay. Japanese style room with A/C.

staff are nice and helpfull with everything
the price is standard as in every gh in hiroshima and the location is good, around a 15 minutes walk to the nightlife area and 5 minutes to the Atomic bomb museum.
Daily cleaning, and a kitchen with everything you need, a bit small common area, but with a great atmosphere, and they rent bicycles!
