Only stayed the one night (tried to get another but every hostel in the city was booked out!), place is small but mostly nice. I read about it before I came and there is definitely a smell to the place that reminds me of a toilet. It's not unbearable but if smells are a tipping point then this probably isn't the place for you. They had a cozy little common area but not many people were using it. Played the Nintendo WiiU with a French guy which was fun.
No door on the bathroom, so the entire hostel smelled like a urinal. The smash bros in the living area was cool though.

Staff spoke no English and had great difficulty even checking us in. The place was very loud. It had only two bathrooms and showers, located right in the kitchen-main room area. The most grievous discomfort of this hostel was its smell. The smell of urine and unclean pervaded the entire hostel. There was a dog that lived there, something that wasn't advertised. We enjoyed the free towel service and well privatized bunks, but were otherwise wholly dissatisfied.
It is not so easy to find at first visit, but if you are in trouble you can call the owner and she will pick you up at a nearby corner or konbini :) I liked the place very much. It was clean and comfortable. Even by walking you can reach the Odori Park and of course the Museum of Modern Art (not necessarily worth a visit).
Cute place, very modern. Comfortable beds with curtains, lights out at 10pm which was very helpful. Free teas and coffee available, lots of variety of manga, free to read in Japanese. Very good location, 3min walk from the station . You can use straighteners for free, which made me very happy :)
Was very clean the staff very helpful and nice, super close to the station which was very handy, slightly more expensive than other hostels in Hiroshima, and having the Nintendo wii u there was good entertainment at night with other guests
