Stayed for five nights and used it as my base for travelling, on Railcard, up to Kyoto, Nara, and Miyajima Island as well as time around Hiroshima. (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.

The Hostel is nice and has very helpful staff! It's also very close to the station. Unfortunately that leads to noise at night through Trains and Streetcars. So bring earplugs. In addition to that it's a 30 Min. walk to the city center so its not in the hart of the town. But you can rent bikes and the streetcar... More

We stayed in this hostel for a night and it was indeed quite a rush for us to make a booking for affordable stays, as it was just a week earlier before our Sakura trip. My stay was right at the full-blossom day, therefore most 3-star hotels were occupied so we picked this hostel. To our surprise, it was even... More

If you're aiming at something close to the station as well as walking distance from the Peace park memorial, this is it. The location is superb, you get simply everywhere and there's a lot of nice restaurants around as well as convenience stores. It's in a side street, so it's not too loud. The staff speaks english well and has... More

When we arrived at Hiroshima we decided to cut out Unzen and add a day on to our Hiroshima time and add one to Kumamoto, with the help of K’s Hiroshima House. The staff there called up our place in Kumamoto to change our reservation and then even helped us get reservations on the Oki Islands as our cells don't... More

The staff were great and very friendly, our room was comfortable, big, clean and quiet, the kitchen and common area are great. Location was perfect within walking distance from the JR station and a short tram ride away from the Peace Park (tram no. 2 just opposite the 7eleven). Also loved the fancy toilets :) Can't really fault this place,... More

Clean, friendly staff and overall great for what we paid - i would have liked a little more space as it was a little small, but most of japans accommodation is this way anyway! great place for single travellers or anybody looking to travel on the cheap!
