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
