My wife & I only stayed a night here but found the host very helpful and friendly. Like many reviewers have noted, her English is limited but enough to help you understand how to get around Hiroshima or Miyajima and places to eat.
There's no ensuite bathroom but there're shared toilets on the same floor as the rooms. The bath is downstairs. The place is spotless and our room have 2 folded up futons on tatami mats. It's very simple Japanese style. The stairs up to the rooms are quite steep, so if your knees are not good, perhaps something to consider.
The location of the ryokan is good. The tram (streetcar as they call it in Hiroshima) stop is only a couple of minutes walk away and the trams are very frequent, going either to Hiroshima dome, station, town (Hondori street) or to Miyajima (you should really change to a train mid-way as the tram will take more time, but that's another story).
Coming from Hiroshima station, it's one tram ride which takes about 20 minutes, from memory. From the ryokan, it is about 10-15 minutes easy walk to the Peace Park and the museum. From there you can make your way to the Atomic Dome, which is at the other end of the Peace Park.
There are food places near the ryokan but we didn't end up eating near there.
Overall, a basic traditional ryokan experience at an affordable price.
