Would be nice if the beds have a curtain for more privacy but all in all a good hostel
This was a great place to stay. Clean, well located in front of the ferry terminal, excellent staff and atmosphere. Make sure you don't miss Yoshi's wild camping parties in Miyajima! Oh man, did we have fun...
Only stayed for one night, but it was a good experience. Staff was nice and helpful - except for one creepy part-timer white guy. Great location right next to the ferry port to go to Miyajima. The facilities were clean and the beds were comfy. Not much else to say. Definitely recommend it.
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.
The Japanese lady at the reception desk was very nice but I can't say the same about the guy. He was drunk and very loud. He was annoying and bothered the (very few) normal people that were staying at the hostel at the time. I would definitely not recommend this place. I would have rather stayed at Hiroshima even if it would take longer to Miyajima island.
