I made sure to spend as little time here as possible. The stench in the dormitory was so overwhelming I had to sleep with a sheet over my face. Showers are downstairs right in the middle of the area where people are having a frat party. The whole place had a grimy feel to it. Staff was wasted when I checked in. Stay in Hiroshima.
It's a basic hostel for visiting Miyajima. Not much in the local area but you're not there for that. Needs some more plug sockets in the dorms and the air con seems a bit overworked. It's ok for a short stay though.
This hostel really is a great experience. Not quite in Hiroshima, they are just off Miyajima Island - this is a GOOD thing. Very close to the train and ferry, Hiroshima is 30mins of train travel away for a visit, and you are right at the front of Miyajima Island - one of the most famous sights within Japan. The atmosphere at the backpackers is great fun, it worked really well. And they provide BBQs, camping and other activities. It's like a very welcoming and social club. Highly recommended.
I loved staying here. Perfect location for peace and nature. Always exciting energy in the evenings. Expect to stay longer than you expected. Camping friday nights! The staff welcome you smiling, they know everywhere to go and everything to see. It felt like home. One of the owners is a tie boxer, so no issue of safety.
Very satisfied with this hostel. A very welcoming environment. Not only that, they provide different events for the hostel residents to attend. This made our stay an especially unique experience, and was one I will never forget.

A good choice, near train station and ferries. Nice staff and good atmosphere.
Sometimes you need a hostel that's on the social side, and not in a big city. Backpackers Miyajima suited me just fine. The staff encourages a friendly atmosphere, from ideas of how to spend your days adventuring, to hanging out with beers and conversation at night. Thanks again!
The staff were really wonderful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
This is a fantastic place to stay! Great place to meet people, and the more you socialise the more you get!! The staff are amazing, they all add their charm to this hostel. Such a great location, near to Hiroshima but the best attraction is Miyajima, the island is a great place to escape the cities and recharge!! Just beware the deer! ;)
Hostel was so close to miyajima island! The people there are very very friendly, and speak the best English I've encountered on my trip. They are always there for you, and ready to get you involved in activities!! I enjoyed my stay!
This was a great location, with great facilities. My only complaint is how it felt like everyone in this hostel was in there own group, and didn't want really want other male guests interaction, they were all for other female guests however. They have long term guests, which is I suppose why it has this atmosphere. Great location, very average atmosphere.
Awesome place to stay! Friendly staff and a really convenient location. 10/10 would go again!
