I had booked a dorm room but when I checked in I was told that I was being upgraded to a single room at no extra cost. Result!! So I cant give a review on what I booked. A well run hostel as they all seem to be in Japan. Good staff and spotlessly clean throughout. About a 30 minute wals from the A dome. But very near to the train station.


Facilities are kept in immaculate condition and the staff are super helpful with everything you could possibly need. The best part might have been listening to 60's music echoing through the halls during the hostel's cleaning hours during the day!


It's a hostel. It did what it said it would do. Offered what it aid it offered. And was generally as advertised. Free wi-fi in the room. Good amount of space in the room. Bikes for rental. Responsive staff, nothing to say except that it's a very good hostel.


The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel was good for budget travel but was very well maintained. It was also very close to a Tram stop which made going into the center very easy.


Great hostel, staff really helpful and friendly, great kitchen and laundry. The only downside was the rooms were a bit small and was a bit far to sights, but has tram stop nearby which goes to station and from there you can catch sightseeing bus, and if you have rail pass it's free, added bonus. Overall a great stay, plus if you stay in other k houses in Japan you get money off which is a great idea.


The staff were so incredibly friendly!! They went above and beyond to help my friend and I. Would absolutely stay here again when I am in Hiroshima!!

Cool hostel, Was always full of smiling happy travelers. Not in the middle of Hiroshima, but walking distance to Hiroshima Station is a big plus.


Location is great, very near to JR station. Beds are comfortable. They even have elevator for those who have heavy luggages.


Very clean. Incredibly polite and helpful staff. Great location, close to Hiroshima JR station and next to a tram line. Definitely recommend!


The hostel was perfect and the staff were great. Thanks.


Great hostel. Close to train station and to see the sights, you can walk or hop on a tram. Lovely facilities and great common room to meet fellow travellers. Staff were very helpful too. Just around the corner from 7/11 as well! The only thing is that I don't think there were lockers for your valuables, which would have been nice, but other than that, it was a great place to stay


Great location, staff are locals instead of part-time students which gives us more authentic feel of this city (especially on their passion on baseball!), always greet their guests which was nice! Definitely recommend to other stayers!


Showers could be less noisy in the rooms and more of them for the number of people. Otherwise, a great stay!


It was a very nice stay! The locati


Loved it! The staff was incredibly friendly, patient, and helpful, with perfect English. The facilities were clean and simple, and the dorm beds had all the little extras: nightlight, outlet, hangers, and huge under-bed lockers (with free "padrock" available haha). Good location: not at the center of town, but quite near and right next to tram stops with access everywhere, plus close to the JR station. 100% recommended :)


Amazing staff! Will be back!


My husband liked that they had the newspaper available each day. Like the other K's Houses we've stayed at, staff were extremely helpful and informative. K's Houses are clean and reliable. Good restaurant recommendations. My one complaint is that the "window" in our room was completely blocked outside so it felt like we didn't have one.


Wi-Fi is free, but computer terminals aren't. If they use too much electricity make them go into standby automatically.


Good location within walking distance of train and major sites. Impeccably clean. Great kitchen and common area. Really good wifi.


Really friendly staff, good location.
