Considering the 20+ beds, the room was nicer and quieter then expected and there were no cues whatsoever for bath rooms. Clean hostel and friendly staff.
Best hostel I stayed at in Japan. Warm, friendly and hospitable staff. Dorm rooms, although big, feel small and private due to curtains. Conditions top notch. Staff always striving to come up with fun activities. Ideal for trips to Miyajima, 1 minute from ferry, as well as downtown Hiroshima, 2 mins from JR train. Don't be deterred because it's not in Hiroshima. Highly recommended.
This was one of my favourite stops along my travels. The staff here really cannot do enough for you and the location to go to Miyajima is just ideal. The atmosphere here was really nice and despite language barriers, everyone is there for an adventure and so very friendly. I am so glad I booked this place. Sake, Eva & everyone else - you were all more than wonderful to be around. TEQUILA FOR EVERYONE.

Had a fun night and thank you for keeping my bag the next day ! Awesome and very very friendly customer service!!
I liked the location, near to the ferry, near to the JR line, near to the tram. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere. The only thing is bad is that at this time of summer, the temperature is warm and it didn't help when I was sleeping on a upper bunk. 1st floor temperature is good not in the accommodation. Maybe if the rooftop can have 24/7 access that will be great rather than closing at like 9pm.

Very lovely hostel with a wonderful staff! Everybody here was so friendly and it's location couldn't be any better for travelers visiting Miyajima! Overall experience was great and I would love to stay here again someday! Thank you for the fantastic experience and kind hospitality!
Could not recommend this place more highly. Absolutely great facilities, attentive and friendly staff that go out of their way for youyou and a really fantastic atmosphere that makes meeting fellow travellers easy. Loved this place, can't wait to come back!
great stay and really nice atmosphere with lots of nice people. beds all have curtains so even though the rooms are big you still get to sleep privately. will definitely come back here if I ever find myself in the area.
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
Great for exploring Miyajima island and staff were friendly and gave good recommendations. Dorms are really big at 20, and the bathroom facilities aren't enough for the number of people (1 shower per dorm for 20 people!) Atmosphere was ok but think the price of drinks in the bar put most people off staying in and having a drink. Far more expensive than other hostel bars!
The location of this hostel is really nice but a bit hard to find as they don't have a big sign on the building, just a small one on the floor. The staff was really nice and helpful.

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.
Well place if you want to visit Miyajima island for a couple of days. The staff is awesome and really want you to have a good time there. There's a bar in the hostel that make food as well. The bedroom are not traditionnal japanese room, more made with a concret floor and to much light.
Fantastic atmosphere and really friendly staff and travelers at this place. Good location, short walk from the JR train line and it's only one train to Hiroshima station, and an even shorter walk to a JR ferry to Miyajima island. It's tucked away in a nice little area to not be overwhelmed by the big city. Showers are a great size but only one per floor. Good inside and outside common areas and the bar is cheap and always fun to drink at. Would definitely recommend this place. Thanks!
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.
