“Cute hostel close to everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I stayed here while we were travelling on our 2nd wedding anniversary holiday. The staff were so lovely. Place is so clean and comfortable. Very close to trains and the baseball stadium. The front desk girl helped us to get tickets (because she couldn't go) and we had a lovely time and it was such a good experience. We never got to say thank you!
Close to main train line, tram, and all other connections to get into downtown and Hiroshima museums. We loved it and would definitely go back.

The hostel is close to the train station which makes it very convinient if you are short on time and want to drop your bags as soon as possible or heading for Miyajima as a day trip. It is walking distance to most sights in the city, so even if the hostel is not in the mid of downtown it is not a long walk. The staff is very friendly, and if you have stayed at other K's Houses you will probably recognise it as part of the chain. It is clean and quiet, has great cooking facilities, free wifi although you need to pay for use of the guest computers. The staff is very service minded and provide great tourist information.

Found this hostel last minute. Great place to stay. Clean beds clean rooms. I have stayed here twice and every time the environment has been great. If your not familiar with the area this is a great place because your either a cable car or a walk away from pretty much everything. K houses are a great chain so if you ever get a chance to stay at one it's probably a good choice

I have stayed here only for one night, because my previous hostel was booked out and I almost wished I would stay here from the beginning.

Clean, comfortable, great common area and kitchen, fast complimentary wifi and the best of all, professional, kind and helpful staff. They helped me with everything, even tho I was there just for the night, the receptionist Maiko was more than helpful.

The only negatives are the computers, which are charged (it is quite common all around Japan tho) and the door system. If you check-out and your departure is at night (overnight buses), you have to get your luggage early, as the staff leaves for the night.

I will definitely come back.

This hostile was fairly expensive for the type of room I was given. I stayed in a place in Kyoto for the same price that was much nicer and included a free breakfast. The staff at this place are really friendly and speak English really well but the unfortunate thing was that the common room Is quite noisy and there is no door to block off the noise except for your bedroom door. There were only two showers and two toilets on my floor and there was about five rooms on my floor with over four beds in each. I picked a room with girls because I thought we would have a girls bathroom also but we had to share with the boys and I could not go into our toilet on level two because there was piss all over the floor for the two nights that I stayed there and it was not mopped. Also the mixed dorms are on the same floor as the girls dorms and not to sound picky but boys stink and it was quite repulsive at times. This might be the cheapest place you could find in Hiroshima but I would suggest staying somewhere else, the beds are not comfortable as the mattresses are superthin but as I said the staff are really friendly and helpful with getting around Hiroshima and it's a great city

We stayed in a Double Ensuite room for two nights. Rooms are basic, but did have a small desk which was nice. Overall:

- Location: 5 minute walk from the train station, 30 minute walk to Peace Memorial Park. Tram is also very nearby.
- Free Wifi: worked very well.
- Kitchen: large space with everything you need including a stovetop and free tea and coffee.
- Cleanliness: room and common areas were clean.

K's Hiroshima is good, basic place for a short visit.
