The staff was friendly, and went out of their way to be helpful. The location is quite literally next to the ferry to Miyajima. I would gladly come back to stay again!

A great place to get good sleep. Silent and dark enough.

Great atmosphere, amazing staff! Go stay here if you like a social experience.. not if you want to get some sleep in the noisy dorms (which are actually not noise seperated from basicallly all beds in the hostel)

Our group stayed here for two nights including Christmas and had an absolute blast. The staff is very friendly and fun, Hiroshima is a great city and the connection to Miyajima Backpackers is easy.

This is probably the best location to be at when touring Hiroshima/miyajima. The staff is great and there are plenty of food options nearby.

Cannot say enough good things about this hostel! Location is so convenient: Very close to JR train station AND ferry. Staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming. Will DEFINITELY be back one day!

Perfect little hostel ideally located if you're planning on spending any time at all on Miyajima Island, this is less than a 30 second walk to the ferry terminal (free crossing if you've got a JR Pass!). Run by two lovely people who were probably the best hosts I had all trip. Small common area downstairs in the bar for meeting people.

This was the best hostel of the trip by far! Having a bar in the common area made it very easy too meet people and some of the locals. The staff were super energetic and fun. Overall great place to spend a couple days. The location was great, right next to the ferry dock and just down the street from the train station.

Nice hostel and great location just next to Miyajima Island. Beds are comfortable and there's a curtain in front of them which gives you privacy, the hostel is clean and the staff is great. If you want to enjoy the nightlife of Hiroshima then the location is not the best since the trains stop running during the night time but if you want to explore the city and Miyajima island, then I can highly recommend this hostel for your trip to Hiroshima.

Plans fell through and we booked this place last minute. It was a weekend and everything was expensive or booked. This place only had a couple beds left, but we were able to get it..

The hostel is 3 minutes from the ferry to away. And 10 min from the Jr station. The room was OK. The showers and other clean. The best for me was the super staff. And the atmosphere .

The location was great and the staff was amazing! Very friendly to every one and was always going out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The only downside was at check in they nearly forced me to let them carry my bag to the third floor. . . Was a amusing sight but I almost felt bad :/

Great location if you want to spend more time in Miyajima, and an easy commute to central Hiroshima. The downstairs bar is very lively, with everyone coming down and socialising. The lovely staff are very happy to help and organise various events for the guests, such as curry night and face painting.

Amazing hostel. Security locker was provided. Roof lounge was beautiful to look at the island. 30 second walk from the boat ferry. Staff was very nice and had a great atmosphere. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hostel.

Great staff and location. Bar and regular events are very nice (500 yens for a beer). The bed price is little bit expensive for huge dormitory (28 people). Only 2 toilets and one shower at out level (an other in the living room).
