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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...
