    Absolutely amazing! Bunks felt like a fun little treehouse. Quite the adventure climbing in, but packed with nice lighting, locked area (if you bring a lock) and outlets which was above and beyond what I’d hope. Do not miss out on their cafe. The genius in the cafe is lovely and makes the best coffee I’ve had yet in japan, and their selection of a few decent alcoholic beverages was lovely (sparkling wine 👍🏻). Thanks for a fabulous stay! ♥️

    It was a great stay at Aki Cafe! Visiting Hiroshima for the first time and staying at Aki Cafe Inn Guesthouse was the best choice. It's easy to access from Hiroshima station. Everything inside of the guesthouse is kept clean and beautiful. Staffs are kind, friendly and helpful. Thank you so much Ryu-san, Hara-chan and Chris! I also loved a small beautiful cafe in the guesthouse. Thank you so much for the lovely time!

    Great location, less than 5 minutes walking to Hiroshima Station. Really friendly staff. Kris the bartender from Taiwan is lovely. The barista and the owner were incredibly helpful when I had to book a bus ticket. Best coffee I had in Japan! Also super clean and newly renovated facilities. Very comfy beds (unlike a lot of thin futons you find in Japan). Thank you for an awesome stay!!

    Great location close to the train station. Storage lockers were provided. Atmosphere was lacking as it was quiet while I was there.

    Literally a 3-minute wall from the Hiroshima train station. Great beds, but insanely hot and stuffy if you get the middle beds in the dorms

    Very quiet and peaceful hostel. Bunk beds had privacy curtains. Lights out at 10 pm. Guests generally kept their voices down. Small lockers provided for valuables outside the room. Staff were helpful but otherwise left you alone. Extremely close to the main train station in Hiroshima, which is extremely convenient if you're taking day trips to Miyajima and beyond. I would recommend this place for a good night's sleep.

    Nice hostel and close to the station. Very quiet, zero atmosphere, and common room isn't really a common room...but nice shower, and it's ideal for a 1 night stay in Hiroshima
