This hostel has an awkward layout. There were two toilets on either side of the kitchen sink so people were washing their hands in the kitchen sink. This hostel doesn't have hot water in any of the sinks. For a hot shower you insert a token. Bathroom was co-ed and school toilet stall style... With visible urinals. The walls were extremely thin and most dorms had no doors and no privacy curtains, lights etc. Extension cables everywhere. This hostel has many issues will never stay again.


Absolutely fabulous and right near the feet port! The team were so much fun, friendly and accommodating ..love the bunk beds and ability to meet others. The host Yoshi even cooks for you 😊

I only spent one night there and definitely enjoyed the scenery, the accessibility to Myiajima. I think the dorms are spacious and you can feel confortable. The owner is very nice and you will be surprise by how many people, mostly foreigners, are working there. Even if it felt a bit chaotic it seems a good place to stay for a while and maybe meet japanese tourists who come there too. I didn t really have the time for that.


Great location, friendly staff, and clean facilities. Thanks for a great experience!


Perfect hostel, great events, super helpful staff, and comfortable lodging!


Great location close to beautiful Miyajima Island, friendly interactive staff, large dorms and often parties downstairs so can be difficult to sleep

The location of the hostel was amazing, just a few metres from the ferry terminal to Miyajima, and quite close to the train station to Hiroshima. The staff was really friendly, and the security of the place nice, with lockers available for free for anyone to use. The big shared room and the actual beds were average, but the air conditioning through the night was a nightmare and even though it was supposed to be quite, we could here all the chatter coming from the entrance, where everybody gather


Great Hostel. Great staff


I came here for two nights initially. I ended up booking three extra nights. I was really sad to leave in the end. Met some awesome people and had a lot of fun

Stayed here for 1 night. The location is excellent: few minutes walking from the train station and few minutes walking to the ferry. The staff was really nice and the place was very clean.


Planned on staying two nights and stayed 6! Yoshi and team will make you feel very welcome and at home. If I return to japan this will be on my list of places to come back to!

It is a nice enough hostel. Has a bit of a frat house feel to it. Which of course some people might like. Lots of drinking games etc.


Hostel is ok and has good social events, Lovely staff and made good friends. The only thing that tainted this experience was going on the hostels BBQ


Great place, very close to the miyajima ferry port. Staff and guests were great. Unfortunately I had to leave Hiroshima because of the typhoon, otherwise I would definitely enjoy staying a bit more.


Definitely a party place, very inviting people and a good place to stay if you're looking for a good time. Not a tonne of privacy but it's a hostel, it's what you expect. Location is great for the island, not so great if you want to do late nights in the city centre but with the parties at the hostel there's no real reason to go out for a late night anyway.


Good location next to ferry. Really nice staff. Clean, only smaller lockers for hand luggage and valuables but enough space in the room. They made dinner each evening and you can try Japanese dishes :)


Good location to visit the island. Big supermarket just one train stop back towards Hiroshima


Location is really good. It's right next to the pier with boats going to Miyajima Island and there's a 7-Eleven nearby as well. The beds don't have curtains for privacy and I didn't find any electrical outlets near my bed. Also, in order to use the shower, you need to put in a coin which enables use for 7 minutes. This wasn't a problem since I shower for less time than that, but found it interesting. There is a washer/dryer that you can use for a fee.


I spend 3 nights and it was absolutely worth it. The guys are friendly and try to bring you in the Japanese atmosphere with smile and positive behavior. I definitely recommend this place


Super nice hostel, great staff, perfect location, highly recommended
