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.

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

Worst hostel I stayed in during my Japan trip. It wasn't horrible but it was not good either. Location is really excellent but the staff I met was very cold and unenthusiastic. Would stay at K's next time.
