The hostel was in a great location. It was easy to find. We especially liked the English map provided that included many places to eat within walking distance. The receptionist-managers were both very helpful and friendly. The tatami room was also warm and comfortable. We also liked that there were bathrooms on all floors.

Great spot for checking out Hiroshima's main points of interest such as Peace Park and the Atomic Dome etc. Some nice restaurants on the main road. You can do the aforementioned city bits in half a day - so the location is good for heading west and south (1.5 hours tops with layovers) to get to Miyajama Island which I MASSIVELY recommend. We opted for a private room and wouldn't normally stay in a hostel, but room was spacious enough for the two of us. Communal toilets were clean.

Conveniently located within walking distance from Genbaku Dome and Peace Memorial and to the tramway stop, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and common spaces. It's the second time I stay at J-Hoppers when visiting Hiroshima and would definitely recommend it.

A small town hostel with excellent staff and a small social room that allows you to truly meet your fellow travelers. Well connected to allow you to leave your luggage closer to the station in case you're out on the town and don't want to return to the hostel before departing. Staff is excellent and there is a beer machine in the terrific kitchen. What more could you want!?

Initially when i first look for a place to stay i have in mind its closeness to some main stations. But actualy, Hiroshima station is a bit far and I gave up that rule. Luckily I ended up at J-Hoppers, which is located closer to important sightseeings. I have got really surprised by all hospitality and people I had met there! I highly recommend this hostel!

If you are an early riser, make sure you get a towel the night before, as there is no staff at the desk until 8am.

We were very happy with this hostel. We like to cook real meals while traveling and the condiments, oils, etc., here were the best we've seen in any hostel. Good location near the Peace Memorial Park.

Traditional Japanese style, beds are on floor. Close to tram and walkable distances to main tourist attractions. Nice, helpful staff. Second J-hoppers I've been to and so far both has been good.

very nice place, check out the staff's recommendations on sights and events on the wall. had a surprisingly spacious single room. The only thing that annoyed me was that the non-japanese guests seemed to be oblivious or ignorant of the fact that Japanese walls are very thin. not the hotsel's fault,but they should stress this more when guests check in.

Con: 1 dryer and 1 washing machine isn't enough for the size of the hostel. The beds were good (with a privacy curtain) but, I know I'm being fussy here, the mattress wasn't that great and I've been sleeping on Japanese beds for a while now. Pros: Excellent location to the Peace Park and only a short journey Into the busy areas via tram, which is excellent by the way, 160Y one off fee! The staff were excellent, couldn't of ask for more! Thank you!

The staff could not have been more helpful! We were in walking distance of the Peace Park which was ideal. We decided to stay an extra day and the staff organised for all of our luggage to be moved to our new room too. The dining recommendations by the staff were fantastic, and we ate at some really nice places which we wouldn't have found without the help of the staff. I had such a lovely time there. Definitely recommend it!

Its a nice hostel, but a small common place. It's clean and has a good location.
