Location is very good, it's a 10 minutes walk from Hiroshimastation and it also should be around 10-15mins for the nightlife (afaik just a few bars etc.) Also, everything touristic lies withing walking distance. The staff was very friendly and the facilities very good. There was a kitchen, tv, different games, books, etc., so you can't get bored so easily. The only not so good thing is that there is only one shower and toilet each floor, but it somehow worked.
Everything was good. Location was very near the JR Hiroshima Station and tram stops.
Very good hostel. The staff there were friendly and a good common room to meet others. A little further from the main sights but only 20-30 minutes walk so not bad at all (very convenient if you are coming from the JR station).
Close to the station (15minute walk) but far from the main downtown (20-25minute walk) Hiroshima. Situated next to the main east-west tramlines so easy access that way. The staff had a local knowledge and had visited most of the nearby eateries and bars within 10mins of the hostel. For major tourist spots they even had little route cards to tell you what transport to get and where! The hostel was very busy whilst I was there and could meet and talk with many of the guests in the common area.
K's House chain of hostels is a great convenience in Japan. Staff is very helpful for recommending places to go and eat. Reserving K's house Takayama from K's house Hiroshima was very convenient.
Helpful staff, clean room, a pleasant kitchen, good Wi-Fi and reasonable facilities. 10 minutes walk from the station and 20 mins walk from the sites of interest. No complaints
Great value for money, as well as a great place to meet other travellers
Fantastic hostel, very clean, excellent service at any time. All intersting points of Hiroshima to reach easily from the hostel. Staff very polite and giving you additional informations regarding events, where to go for dinner, etc. Booked through K's hostel also for Takayama, Mt. Fuji (Kawaguchi) and now Ito Onsen = Stop over in Paradies! Same comments for Takayama and Ito. Assume I will make same comments for K's in Kyoto from 22.6. to 7.7.14. Will recommend K's to my friends.
I have stayed at this hostel a few times and they never fail to go above and beyond what I expect as a standard. Love this place!

We only were actually in the hostel briefly as we had one day in Hiroshima which was mostly spent sightseeing but it was easy to find and on arrival staff were helpful. Particularly impressive was when we finally checked in someone had taken one of our dorm beds staff quickly moved us to a private room resolving the issue.
Very nice hostel located in walking distance from the train station and some of the good attractions. They provide nice bikes which are an easy way of getting everywhere. My room was real nice with a balcony. The communal chill and kitchen spaces were very nice except they lacked windows and natural light. Staff were great and greeted everyone with a smile.
Great location, great staff, and central to everything. My only complaint is that I didn't have more time in Hiroshima. Ks is great and so is the city. If you visit Hiroshima, make sure you spend enough time to see it for what it is, not for what it is remembered for (but go see peace park!!!!)
We have stayed at 3 K's house branches now and they are all fantastic! Great value for money, super clean, friendly staff and the atmosphere is always pleasant. Never had a bad experience, the facilities are great and meeting other people at k's is easy :) i highly recommend staying.
A little bit smaller than the other K House Hostels, but it was easy to get to, the rooms were good and I have nothing to complain about.
Having spent 15 days in Japan at nine different hostels and hotels, (none of which were anything less than good) K's House was the stand out establishment. Plus Hiroshima is a must visit city.

Solid, spacious bunk beds in the dorms, individual power outlets and reading lights, really clean facilities, good kitchen and dining area. Cozy common room. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice rooftop terrace. Really liked all the K's House locations (4) I stayed at across Japan. So easy to meet other travelers and all were so nice and clean.
Great hostel! The common room and kitchens are great. Clean, lots of equipment, free tea and coffee. Also, it's quite big with a television and overall a great place to meet people. The dormotories are clean and simple, with big lockers for you stuff. The staff speak english and are helpful. The location is okay. Not close to the center but a 5 minute walk from the main train station which is convenient.
I loved the atmosphere, I felt more at home than in most of the places I've stayed at.
The hostel was really pleasant, lovely staff and nice rooms. Fairly close to the downtown area with most bars and restaurants. Has wifi and they looked after our luggage during our last day. It was a very good hostel overall.
Great hostel within easy walking distance of the train station and city center. Very clean with a good common area/ kitchen. They provide a lot of sightseeing info and are eager to offer suggestions. The staff called to sign me up for a last-minute tour of the Mazda Museum- very helpful! Would definitely come back.
