If you are visiting Miyagima, this is definitely the place to stay at. It's located literally right in front of the ferry stop, so no need at all to stay on the island itself which is way more expensive. The last boat is at 10 so you can explore most of the night after all the tourists have left. The common area is very sociable and I had a great time going out with Yurie, who works at the hostel, and some of the other guests for some really delicious Okanamiyaki! Definitely recommend this place
This place is not on the island itself but who cares. The island is pretty dead after 10. The hoste aint dead at all. Hete you will meet other travellers easy! The staff is exceptionally helpfull and friendly. I had a really happy time in the hostel. The island is 10 minutes away. Boats are plenty. Hiroshima is just 25 minutes by train. You won't regret syaying here. Bring earplugs, someone will surely snor, it's a giant dorm.
I stayed one night there and it was a nice experience. Staff where really nice and helpful, and the location was perfect.
Propably the best hostel ive stayed in a long time. Super friendly staff, super friendly people and it was so easy to get to know new people there. (Also 100yen shots!) Definitely recommend this place.
Really close to Miyajima island but 1/2 an hour out of Hiroshima. Great hostel atmosphere and great staff. Rooms are all very noisy and I don't think any proper walls are installed between them but apart from that the room set up was okay.
lovely girls running this place. location is very convenient near the ferry and cloae to the train station. beds come with a clothes line! there is only one shower per floor, was ok though.
We had a good night and met a bunch of people. Right beside the ferry terminal to Miyajima.
Best hostel I've stayed at to date! Awesome atmosphere and super friendly staff. Miyajima is so beautiful!
Wonderful stay had here would definitely recommend.
Great hostel, wonderful staff. Great little bar downstairs. Perfect location for seeing Miyajima and Hiroshima.
Really great place! The bar is great for meeting people, and the location couldn't be closer to the Myajima ferry (well worth a day out there). It's about 40 mins to the centre of Hiroshima by train. The staff stayed up an extra hour after closing to check me in as I was arriving late. Apparently they underwent refurbishment a few months back and are still getting new things added all the time, so for all I know, it could be even better now!
We had a wonderful stay at Hostel and Cafe Bar Backpackers Miyajima! From the moment that we walked up, the staff was very informative and friendly; more-so than any of the other hostels that we had visited in Japan. The bar provides a nice atmosphere to meet the other people in the hostel. I would definitely recommend this place to friends!
This hostel is a great place to stay if you're traveling to Miyajima! The staff spoke English and were super friendly and the JR Ferry Port is literally just outside the front door. We met up with many travelers and even staff members who were excited to travel and hike with us on Miyajima and even the surrounding area in Hiroshima. The hostel was also pretty newly renovated and keys and lockers were provided for valuables.
A very nice place, well located and with a very very good atmosphere ! There are many facilities, and everything is clean. Really, I recommend that place !

Hostel & Cafe Bar Backpackers Miyajima is the perfect choice if you want to stay close to the Island of Miyajima - it's really easy to get there in the morning before the crowds or stay until the last ferry and enjoy the evening after rush hour (Hiroshima city is about 30 min). The hostel itself has a really lovely kitchen/cafe/common room, and the staff is extremely friendly, definitely staying there again when I'm in Hiroshima.
Absolutely spectacular people and a great atmosphere, had an amazing time while we were there and will be going again in the future. Thank you all for everything.
I loved my stay at the hostel. The place was clean and staff especially saki was just amazingly friendly. I definetely recommend coming back to the hostel. My overall experience was just unforgettable. The hostel was definetely made my visit to hiroshima a memorable visit. I will definetely tell all my friends and family.
Staying here was great! The staff were fantastic and acted like friends straight away. They were very willing to help. Over the two nights that we were there they hosted a takoyaki party and an unplanned movie night. Very good atmosphere.
Fantastic hostel! Great location, great staff & great atmosphere. I only stayed one night but on check out they invited me to meet with them the day after for a festival in Hiroshima The owner of the hostel bought us syrup drinks and 2/3 of a karaoke evening. Highly recommend this hostel.
We loved staying here! The hostel is out of the city centre but the location is perfect for Miyagima island and it's easy to travel into the city. The staff were lovely and very helpful, they gave us lots of ideas on where to travel to next.
