The location is great, it's easy to get to Miyajima or the inner city of Hiroshima by streetcar. The staff was very helpful and always interested. Since I could rent a keylock there, I could also lock my things away. The house was clean and I had no problems with the one shower per floor.

Could use more showers, otherwise all good.

The room (twin room) was very nice, but there is definitely too few showers! Only one to an entire floor. Otherwise a nice hostel.

Thank you for staying here with us!! We are all glad to hear from you. As you say, we have only one shower room on the second and third floor. It's not enough... We are sorry about this inconvenient. But we hope you had a good time in here. Please have a safety travel and enjoy your traveling!! Take care and thank you again!!

I went to Hiroshima for the International Animation festival. The hostel is very close to that location making it an ideal place to stay. Which also makes it close to the Peace memorial park. The staff is friendly and seems to take cleanliness very seriously, and the check in and check out is done swiftly without any delays. There are lockers for our possessions, free wifi (albeit a bit slow) and silence at night. I would like a water vendor. In general a very practical and satisfactory stay.

I had a pleasent stay at J-Hoppers Guesthouse in Hiroshima and would definitely recommend it. The personal is very friendly and speaks English, the rooms are tidy and mine even had a balcony. The traditional Futon bed was something I always wanted to try as well and I don't regret it.

Very close the the Peace Park - it's about a 5 minutes walk away. And very close to a tram stop that can take you directly to the train station too. The female dorm I stayed in was clean and comfortable and was a more traditional style that some of the other rooms. The staff were friendly and there was plenty of information about things to do in and around Hiroshima in the lobby. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

I didn't even spend 24 hours there so my comment cannot reflect the mood of the place. All in all, it seems everything you might need you will find. It + lots of advices for tourists (Mitaki). The good things is that it's close to the Peace Park, a Media Popeye for Internet, and it gives also access easily to Mitaki which is one place not to miss next to Hiroshima,

It was ok. Stuff was, compared to all other hostels and japanes people, rather reserved and not interested at all. Also the Person didnt really bother helping us out with proper information about the sourrounding area. Double private room was ok. Bit smelly tho. I think only 4 or three showers in whole building and none of them on the top level. 4 floors no elevator but i guess we are all young enough to live with that ;) There is one really nice cafe right next to dobashi station (best cafe)

J-Hoppers is always a great choice if you are a backpacker. The staff and the atmosphere are really good! The location is also great, very close to the A-bomb memorial.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hostel. There was soap and shampoo provided, so I didn't even need to bring my own, and hair dryers available for my use as well. It was clean, the staff was great, and it was in a good, central location to everything I wanted to see. There were also plenty of great maps for me to use with things like restaurants nearby, and their hours of operation, so I had no trouble getting around!

Definitely a franchise feel to the place, but it doesn't detract from the backpacker experience. Friendly staff, a definite perk compared to the rest of my hostels was paying by debit card. Walking distance to the Peace Memorial Park, which is definitely worth a visit (the museum especially, very eye-opening). Walk round the corner for some easily accessible okonomiyaki (the local delicacy), but consider the twenty minute walk to Okonomimura for a true local experience.
