Great hostel! Perfect location right next to the ferries over to Miyajima Island which is a must visit. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
At first I was concerned about going to a 20 bed dorm, but they actually manage the situation pretty well with their rules (chat in the sound-proofed common room, no chat in the dorm room itself). The people there were very helpful with their information about Miyajima, and they kept my bags while I went camping on Miyajima itself.
Great location close to the ferry terminal. Kinda strange dorms with one big room with minimal privacy. Bathrooms are mixed too. Also no bed lights made it hard to see at night on the bottom bunk - when the light is turned off the whole 20 bunks have no lights. Awesome art in the common room though and friendly staff!
