    Everything was clean and in good order. Easy check-in/ out. Inclusion of vent fans in each “pod” is much appreciated. Super convenient location makes it a great choice if you want to catch an early train.

    I had a really comfortable stay here. I would recommend hiring bikes from here and going to the Hiroshima Memorial sites. The beds were spacious and comfortable and I liked the added feature of the fans in the capsule bed to circulate air. I wish the common room was more connected to the dorm rooms because they felt like they were in two separate buildings which made it harder to socialise. I managed to find people still which made my stay pleasant as a solo backpacker.

    Loved this hostel! Loved how private and spacious the little cubicles were in the dorm room. Appreciated the thoughtful touches such as private common area for the dorm room, separate shower and toilet area, spacious security locker! The small cafe was great too! Located a block from the main train station and a short tram ride from the major peace attractions. Would definitely recommend.

    Had a wonderful two nights at the Akicafe. Very clean, minimalistic hostel. Good space for items in the pods (a duffle bag, backpack, space to charge devices). Alice was very helpful with our accommodation and bike rentals. Would recommend 10/10.

    Hostel is super convenient and close to the station. Decent walk away from the main tourist-y parts of the city. Dorm room beds are in these little wooden "pods" that are quite comfortable and allow for decent privacy. However, that makes it hard to get to know your roommates if you are trying to get to be social / meet people. The living quarters are in a completely separate building from the lobby / reception / common area - so slightly harder to organically socialize without extra efforts.
