“Cozy atmosphere and convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Really enjoyed my short stay here. It is not within walking distance from the train station but directions given on the website were very clear and it was easy to find the place after alighting at the Dobashi tram station. I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm with tatami mats. Thoughtful gestures like placing a small mirror and box of tissues on each locker were very appreciated. The room decor was simple but pretty - pink hues for a girls' room. Lovely! The staff were warm and friendly and helped resolve my dorm's heater issues (we did not know how to use it) and recommended some delicious Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki to us. The hostel is located just 5-10 minutes away from the Peace Memorial Park and Museum by foot and it is easy to get to Miyajima from there too. Pleasant stay!

We booked to stay for a night in an 8-bed dorm but was pleasantly surprised when the receptionist upgraded us to a vacant semi-double tatami private room! The place was quiet and clean. Location is very good as it is just 3 minutes walk from the nearest tram stop and 45 minutes from Miyajima. Also, it is a few minutes walk from the Peace Memorial Park and A-bomb dome. Hiroshima is a very nice place and I highly recommend this place.

This hostel has a really nice feel to it, the guy on reception Tom is really friendly and helpful and was keen to explain the check in process and invite any questions. There's a small common room with two laptops and a small kitchen with free tea and coffee which was nice. The actual room was super clean and it was a great experience to sleep on the tatami mats. The shower and toilet are shared but are impeccably clean. The location is great with a convenience store nearby and a short walk to the A bomb site. Great hostel!

By email I booked a japanese-style-single-room and that was just more than awesome: recently renovated, beautifully decorated, shared facilities absolutely great (toilet has some high-tech-modern gadgets, like incorporated handshower/seat-heathening/dryer for the dirty "parts") And staff is nice, professional and adequate.

Room Tip: a dorm-bed here might be more tha good enough, but if you want to go for that singleroom in japanese...

stayed here as part of a road trip around southern Honshu in Oct 2012.

Great location, just over the bridge from the peace memorial & about 45mins to Mia jima. Super helpful staff, free wifi & computers to use them on, cooking facilities, parking, communal area, smoking area, etc.

Staff really know the area & recommended a great okonomiyaki restaurant & local bar.

Stayed in private tatami room for one night & dorm for two nights, both great.

definitely would stay here again if i return to hiromisha!

This hotel is situated in a very good location. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms were good. The only hardships we found was find a breakfast place to eat, there weren't many places nearby that opened before 11am. Otherwise it was a great place to stay and transport and the Memorial park was nearby.

I stayed in Inn's, Ryokans and Hostels on my trip, but by far my favourite place was J-Hoppers Hiroshima. I even cancelled a night somewhere else just so I could stay here another night!

I was staying in a 4 person Japanese style dorm, although only on my first night was there a full house - and on my last night I had to the place to myself, which may have influenced my opinion. The rooms have minimal storage, but enough to store away bags, and the futons were very comfortable.

The hostel is situated practically on top of a tram stop, and in easy walking distance to the Peace Memorial Park and the train line to Miyajima. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful, and found the living room to be constantly buzzing with travellers. I managed to get some great advice from nights in the living room, along with some free food.

Loved every night here, and won't even consider anywhere else should I return to Hiroshima.

Room Tip: If staying in dorms, go for the Japanese-style. The western style bunks are nowhere near as comfort...
