Keep doing this you're doing, this hostel is amazing :)
I really loved this place, it was one of the best hostels during my time in Japan. They have all the little things figured out in the rooms -- lights, curtains, plugs for charging and lockers -- and the hostel has a full kitchen, great wifi, and free coffee. They also have a common room where everyone hung out and swapped stories. Felt like a hostel, and that's not always the case in Japan. They also had great maps and help planning travels in the area. Loved, would stay again.
Great location to stay at and get around, clean and comfortable, also dorms very secure and comfy.
This was one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The staff is really friendly and everything you need is in the hostel or nearby. They were always willing to point you in the right direction or give advice about things to do. The facilities were clean and the building itself well-cared for (I've stayed in hostels in renovated old buildings that show their ware). The only complaint I can make is that there was only 1 shower per floor, so I sometimes had to wait. Overall, great hostel :D
Good hostel, perfect location for peace park. A bit of a walk from hiroshima nightlife. Good common area for meeting others. Only negative is that our room smelled a bit weird (maybe the air con unit?) - stayed in private double on fourth floor.
Another good j hoppers hostel!
Really friendly staff. Thanks a lot!
Very nice, helpful and friendly staff. Very nice "backpackers" hostel with comfortable beds, easy wifi access and all the information you need on Hiroshima and the region (even the temporary events). Perfect location, just by the memorial peace park and the tram that goes to Miyajima. Staff très sympathique et serviable qui vous donne toutes les infos dont vous avez besoin. Auberge agréable (lits confortables, bon réseau wifi) et idéalement située (près du mémorial et du tram pour Miyajima).
Really nice hostel and staff very friendly!!!
A bit cramped, but overall a good place. Lots more foreigners than most other places I have stayed. Very good English guides all over the place. A good kitchen if you want to make anything. Far from the station but very close to the peace park. Women's dorms are all futons on the ground. clean facilities, friendly people.
Nice hostel, but when we visited a lot of dorm guests that were in bed all day, causing the dorm to have quite foul air, quite unpleasant at night. Having visited the hostel before in 2008 we found that it has lost a lot of the cute features that made you smile back then, like all the fun hand written notifications and directions. Nowadays it feels more professional, and alas more generic. Staff was very friendly though, location still great.
I've heard a lot about J-Hoppers chain regarding théier atmosphere (above all in the web site) And I hâve been disappointed. People that came late in the evening were screaming on 4am as of they were in their own home alone. The female dorm was disappointing, because very close to each other. Unfortunately not the best place I went to.
The equipment in this hostel was exceptionally good. There are detailed descriptions of the sites, how to get there, how much it costs, etc. in the living room and many maps available which was really handy. The kitchen was also well-equipped. The location is also really nice, it's close to a tram station. The atmosphere wasn't as familial as in other hostels, because there were many rooms and it was more hotel-ish. The staff's English was good.
I really enjoyed my stay. It is very easy to access Peace Park by foot, and there is a tram nearby for easy access to anywhere in the city. I like that there was a safe available to store valuables. The futon was comfortable and the blankets were very warm. All the other guests were also quite pleasant. The only thing I would have liked is if the dividers were longer for a bit more privacy. Other than that, this is an excellent place to spend a few nights in Hiroshima.
I really liked the cleanliness factor about the hostel as well as its prime location very close to many of the main sightseeing spots for instance the atomic dome and memorial park and museum. Very close to major shopping arcades as well. The internet connection could have been better in the rooms but that is minor. At least it worked. I highly recommend J-hoppers. Thank you.

Pretty cool place with the potential for a good atmosphere (although sadly not really much going on this time around). Clean, friendly staff, and fantastic location right by the peace park.
Great hostel to stay, the atmosphere in the common room was great. Easy to meet people. The hostel was clean and tidy. The receptionist was really helpful too. Great location to see the peace park. Would recommend it.
Great hostel. Very clean facilities and very friendly staff. We stayed in a japanese style 4 bed female dorm, the rooms are small but clean and sufficient.
Staff very friendly, even if I arrived just a bit after usual check-in time!
