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

Out of all the hostels that I stayed in throughout my month long trip to Japan, this hostel was hands down the best. I can't speak too much about how friendly the staff is because I only stayed a couple nights and didn't ask too many questions, but the amenities are great - large living room with plenty of seating,...

(couldn't get into hostels in these places as it was over the main cherry blossom week end0 Hostel is about ten minutes walk from station and on a quiet side street. The Peace... More

Helpful staff, good laundry service (wash & dry for Y300), bike rental provided a great way to travel around the city. We only stayed one night but really enjoyed visiting Hiroshima. Quite a small twin room (bunk bed), but ensuite and comfy beds. They also had a noticeboard with lots of good local / regional travel ideas, and a book... More

We stayed at this hostel back in 2009 when it had only been open for a year. We have returned in 2016 and it is still a fantastic hostel. We utilised the kitchen several times which saved us some money 😊 We would recommend this hostel as it is not far from the JR Hiroshima station and you can walk... More

Cozy hostel situated in a quite street. This one has a good location, close to train station and the center of the city. Comfortable and clean. Staff is helpful and nice. If I go to Hiroshima I will repeat my choice.
