All in all a nice Hostel to stay in. Could have been closer to the more interesting areas of Hiroshima, but its close proximity to the JR station helps make up for this.

Great location, barely a 10 min walk from the train station. There is a local tram stop a block and a half away...couldn't make getting around Hiroshima any easier. Helpfully staff with great recommendations. This place definitly made a difference in my enjoyment of Hiroshima.

K's House was quite lovely. Great common room with plenty of tables and chairs, a tv, and tons of movies. The staff seemed to have some good ideas on where to go not just in the city, but in Hiroshima prefecture itself. Very clean, good cooking area, and a nice big fridge to keep your food. In between Hiroshima station and Hiroshima's entertainment district, so it's a pretty handy location. Definitely recommend!

Fantastic hostel with amazing, friendly and helpful staff. Great common room and kitchen made it easy to meet others. Close to JR station and tram lines connecting to Peace Park (or a 25min walk). Thanks Ks House!

Squeaky clean, very friendly hostel. Despite being quite large, it didn't feel too impersonal. Great facilities and lots of information on how to get places.

About a 2 min walk from the nearest tram and about 10 mins walk from the main station. The hostel is in a quite residential part of the city. It was a very nice hostel and the staff was nice and helpful. There were many places to see but during the Japanese holidays many were closed from Dec 30 to Jan 3. But, I would come back and stay here to see what I missed for sure. You can hope a tram to Atom dome in 15 mins or 35 mins to Miyajima.

I stayed at the hostel over new years and it was great. The owner gave us free soba noodles and sake/beer/umeshu before taking us to a bar where we did the countdown and danced the night away. We also made sushi rolls the next day!

Hostel is in walking distance from both Hiroshima station and Hondori (if you like walking, that is). Staff is friendly and helpful, living room and kitchen were pretty and clean. I guess it would be nice if there were more showers; there was quite a queue at times. Good library and DVD collection.

K's House was a short walk from the JR station. It's not close to the action but it's a short safe walk to the shopping centre and peace park.

Good place with really friendly staff. Would definitely stay again. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom. The room is small but comfortable and clean. Staff were helpful in every way and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Great hostel situated between the train station and all the main attractions and nightlife area of Hiroshima. Very pleasant inside, like all the K's House branches we've been to. Definitely recommended.

The staff were great; so friendly and welcoming. The downstairs area was very nice and certainly conducive to socialising. The bedding and facilities were nice and the location was very good (within walking distance of the train station and centre of town).

A great place to stay. The location was right next to the station as well as the cable car, so it was good for a quick stopover, but even better for seeing the amazing city.

Loved this place. Staff is amazing and friendly. Big plus is that they speak English. They know the area very well and can help you find an adventure to choosing a restaurant in the area. Love the lounge area. Perfect size to meet and greet others. No complaints here. And they truly help you figure things out while in Japan. Have fun and tell them hello from me. ;) (the guy from Guatemala. ) they'll know who I am. Ps. Place is very clean.
