This place is not big enough for all the people that visit there. It allways seemed too crouded.. There is no elevator.. It wad not easy to carry all the luggege upstarirs (3rd floor... and there is even a 4th floor...) The room I stayed in was smelly :( and there was not enghe privecy in the dorms... The good points about this place is the staff, which is helpful and nice, and the location.
Awesome rooftop for early evening music and drinks - Mayu is a lovely host! Accommodated 8 of us perfectly
Great stay. Best backpacking atmosphere in anywhere we stayed backpacking japan for a month. Only negative is not enough showers. But that's all, staff were great as was the location and facilities great. Would stay here again.

Friendly, helpful staff with excellent English. The directions to the address from the station were very useful, staff were good with suggestions of local attractions and advice on getting around, the rooms were comfortable, it was all 'round a pretty good place to stay. I'd recommend it to friends.
The hostel was in a prime location right next to the peace park and close to the Dobashi Tram Station. To Hiroshima station its only a few stops on the tram, and its in walking distance from the Hiroshima Bus Terminal (which is why I chose it). Average hostel, the room I was in was kind of musty for a Japanese hostel, but nothing impossible to bear. Miyajima is also about a 40? minute tram ride, but closer than where what it would be if you were coming from hiroshima station.

Good location, good price with all the facilities you need and all the tips you need for enjoying Hiroshima and its surroundings.. Lacks a bit of atmosphere but i guess this is also comes as is a chain hostel in a city where people comes mainly for the bombing theme (it has a lot of more to offer).
Ok place to stay for a few nights, facilities were average, very small common room, but the kitchen was equipped and the terrace was nice. Pretty hard directions to follow from tram. Close to peace park and museum but a bit away from station and decent eateries. The atmosphere in this hostel was very dull and boring. Wasn't a very social hostel at all. Staff were nice and helpful. Bedside locker enough to fit personal belongings was good. Only 2 toilets and 1 shower per floor.
I never stayed here before but will when I come and visit again.

j-hoppers is not amazing, and it's definitely not bad, it's nice and average. the rooftop is a nice feature although I thought for the amount of people staying there that the common room was small and there isnt really anywhere to comfortably sit down and eat except the designated smoking area. I stayed for more than 3 nights and so I got to do my laundry for free so there's a good reward system. good for quiet individuals or groups
Great staff are super helpful and super friendly! Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.
Good vibe, laid back. Rooftop terrace for beers. Good advice from staff about restaurants etc. Good location. Ony drawbacks were no showers on 4th floor and no lift. Would stay again.
Fantastic hostel experience, we were a group of 6 and stayed 2 nights - beds are good and private, super clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff, rooftop terrace is lovely, walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go as well as great okonomiyaki and supermarkets/ATM nearby. Thanks!
One of the bst hostel i have ever been in my life. Nothing to complain.
Great hostel. I stayed in a 4-bedroom females dorm and it was very clean and spacious. Good access to bathrooms and showers. Hostel is in a great location- 10 minute walk from a-bomb dome and museum.
Great hostel, easy to find and in a great location for all the tourist attractions in Hiroshima. Lovely staff who were very helpful when asking for recommendations on restaurants and places to go! All facilities were clean and they provided lots of extras if required! Great hostel overall :)
I really enjoyed my stay at J-Hoppers Hiroshima Guesthouse. Hiro and Mayumi were great at helping me in everything that I needed. I definitely will recommend this hostel to everyone who asks me some good accommodation in Hiroshima. Thank you a lot for the good time that I had in Hiroshima. Cheers! (Ivanor Tres)
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Kitchen and living spaces feel really homey. Good location to peace park and grocery stores and try the cafe cinnamon around the corner!
Stayed for just 1 night, but the staff were super helpful and pointed me in the right directions. Getting there was supper easy too, and it's really close to the main tourist spots of hiroshima. Would definately stay there again!
Good hostel in Hiroshima. Close to the centre, clean en nice rooms.
