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)

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.

Location is perfect to visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. Good value for money, but the current A/C isn't not enough for the 8-bed dormitory.

Clean, good staff, cool atmosphere. Position is not excellent because you need to take trams (streecar at dobashi stop) to get into the center, and that can be a little expesive if done 2-3 times per day. Also there is no elsevator, and we were ar the 4th floor so it can be difficult if you have nig luggage. Moreover it was very hot in Hiroshima (more than 30degC) and the 4th floor was really boling. Fortunately room had an air conditioner...

Good location and okay rooms. Facilities were good enough. But the place is not overly clean, especially given that there were cockroaches. Still, it was a place to stay the night and did its job well enough. Never got the WiFi to work.

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.

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.
