We spent two nights here in a family room that was clean, but slightly worn and on the small side for 2 adults and 1 child. The mattresses were comfortable, but we could have used more and thicker pillows. Good A/C. The shared shower was cramped, but worked very well and was clean, with good water pressure, shampoo and soap... More

Stayed as a couple in a private room - Japanese style with futon beds. Really friendly staff, really good atmosphere. Very clean shower and toilet. Excellent location close to 711 for your breakfast. We would recommend. Worth paying for a private room here, even having to pay for 4 people when there were only two of us significantly cheaper than... More

We stayed for one night at this hostel. It's quite close to Hiroshima station, which easily can be reached by foot. There's a 7Eleven nearby which is really practical. It's also near a tram station. The staff was very friendly and spoke great english. They had a lot of knowledge of Hiroshima and had recommendations on e.g. restaurants. They also... More

On tripadvisor it has 4.5 out of 5 stars, so I was expecting a lot. In the end it was kinda disappointing compared to my other hostel. The good part was the enthousiasm from the staff. They will do their best for a score. Room is empty and very small for 4 persons. Being placed with a family was sad... More

Stayed here for one night on a flying visit to Hiroshima. Not the best hostel I've ever stayed in but certainly not the worst. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the place was very clean and our tatami room on the top floor was spacious. The only downsides were that the place probably needs a bit of modernisation and... More

Perfectly comfortable one night stay at K's house. The communal facilities are good and there's a lovely roof top terrace. I had a bed in a 4 bed dorm and it would be nice to have a curtain around the bed for a little more privacy. The location is ideal for the JR station and for getting around the city.... More

Very clean and walkable distance from the JR station. Staff is helpful but they are not proactive enough to talk to the guests in the hostel. Since Hiroshima is a rather small city, people usually stay 1-2 nights there (while I'm staying for a week), so not much "friendship" could be developed because of the short time. Wifi signal is...

I stayed at K's Hiroshima for one night and had a super comfortable stay. The staff speaks English and is very helpful. They're happy to help you get to your next destination. The hostel itself is super clean and looks great - consistent quality across all K's branche hostels.

This is not the cheapest hostel, but it was the only one with space left during golden week (kind of the equivalent to spring break in North America)! So we came here and it is quite a cute hostel, lost of friendly people, the staff was beyond helpful and, as with all other hostel experiences I had in Japan, the... More
