建議室內拖鞋固定每人一雙,在入住時即每人固定,覺得每天穿不知道是誰穿過的鞋子,很不衛生。

We had to prolong our stay to ten days total. We were very happy to be able to stay with K's all the time. We therefore had to change rooms several times because they were (almost) fully booked. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

Thanks for the stay. Everything was lovely and clean. Bit of a walk from the station, but close to small shops. A nice common room as well.

Helpful staff and good facilities. Issue with the air-con machine being located right by the top bunk bed. Had to switch it off during the night! Other than that, great stay!

I came here with my girlfriend in a double bed room. The bed was big, we had a TV and a prive bathroom + WC. I could have stayed the entire week in the room, if Hiroshima hadn't been such a pleasant city to visit ! The staff was really great, then lent me a book to learn some more japanese. I'd definitely go back there.

There is good condition about all of thing. Especially, i satisfied with renting service for umbrella. In my country, most of hotels isn't offering it.

Well located near subway stop, but otherwise just a typical hostel. Breakfast was a bit overpriced for what it was, your better off eating yogurt from a nearby Family Mart.

Great facilities, good location. Buffet breakfast at the cafe was great value, friendly staff. Could have been good if there were some sort of organized events or tours through the hostel, would have helped meet other travelers.

Toilet and shower are not clean. Toilet smells of urine and shower mat is very dirty as well. Not sure how often they clean the place.

Room key card is a good feature for security. Rooms are a little small.

I've stayed in dozens of hostels during my 6-month trip and K's was amongst the best - it was perfect in terms of location, super friendly and helpful staff, nice social atmosphere, clean, etc. Highly recommended.

The best hostel I have stayed in during my time in Japan. Excellent common facilities, good vibe. Make sure you check out the rooftop. Bar/cafe is also a rare feature in Japanese hostels and was excellent for a snack or some drinks with friends at the end of the night. If I could change one thing it would be that the rooms are a little on the small side but hey, it's Japan! Highly recommended.

One of the best Hostel I've ever stayed. The staff was friendly, the accommodations were comfortable and spacious, the kitchen was well equipped and up to date with three massive fridges, and the people staying also happened to be friendly! They had bike rentals for 700 yen, and the bikes were in a good condition. Washing was 300 yen but drying was free. Tons of showers, events for meeting other travelers, the list goes on and on. Highly reccommend!

Good location only 10 mins walk from train station. Quiet area. Great and large kitchen and common room. Lovely little cafe / bar next door. Free tea and coffee provided.

The staff could speak in english that you don't have to be worried in communication. The internet needs to upgrade. It was not capable of holding so much guests in this hostel.
