As an experienced independent traveller. I know it might be offensive writing down the name of particular person in my review. However, K's House Hiroshima definately gave me the unforgetable memory while I travelling to Hiroshima as it is from one of the best hostel chain in Japan called K's House Hostel is actually within 10 minutes walk from Hiroshima...

We stayed at a number of K's House hostels in Japan and this was the only one I found underwhelming. The hostel is located about 15 min walk from the train station but is in a direct line towards where the action is (shopping and A Bomb historical sites). As with all K's House hostels the bathroom/shower facilities are co-ed... More

A number of years ago I stayed at K's house in Kyoto and loved it - Hiroshima did not disappoint. Friendly staff, diverse travelers from around the world staying, centrally located a 10min walk from Hiroshima station (and right on the streetcar matobashi stop). Traveling with a 9month old baby, a private room was enough space (barely) to fit the... More

This hostel was well equipped. They had a great common area and a fully equipped kitchen. The hostel itself was very neat and clean. Furthermore, the employees were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Japanese style private room. It was really nice. The rooftop terrace was also a big plus.

I really loved this hostel, and wish I had known about K's before coming to Japan. It's close to the staion (less than 10 min walk) and also the area for going out (about 15 min walk). The hostel was really clean, the staff friendly, with good recommendations for dinner. The facilities were really good too, kitchen was spacious, good... More

K's House Hiroshima is as great as the others we have experienced in Japan - nice rooms, super clean bathrooms, great common areas (kitchen, living room), and very friendly staff. It is quite well located close to the station (walking distance if you don't have too many luggage) and to the trams. Highly recommanded for any stay in Hiroshima !

We were supposed to stay for one night, stayed for two as we liked it so much. Very comfortable sleeping, no noise, clean and well equipped bathrooms and toilets, friendly reception staff, very helpful. The only drawback was thin walls so you can hear your neighbours talking, but that is a norm in Japan.

K's was a great hostel located an easy walk from JR Hiroshima station. The staff were really friendly from the moment you walk in the door and speak excellent english. The hostel has great facilities including a spacious lounge and kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and small, comfortable dorms. Peace Memorial Park is a 25-30 minute walk or easily accessible on... More

Really clean and tidy place. Big powerful showers. Well stocked kitchen. Good common areas. Free coffee. Friendly and helpful staff and a location close to the tram line and walking distance from rail station. Only gripe is that the futon mattress in the Japanese-style room was a bit thin, so not the most comfortable I've slept on. Overall, I'd highly... More
