    Easy and relaxed, great friendly staff. Location near JR station and tram is perfect. Laundromat available. One recommendation: breakfast at 8 is a bit late... consider 7...

    Fantastic location very close to J.R. station. I walked everywhere I wanted to go, but buses, including a complimentary service on some routes with a J.R. pass was also available outside J.R. Capsules were a bit vertically small , but clean and comfortable. Speaking of clean, communal areas such as toilets and showers were always kept in a quality condition. Staff were exceptionally eager to do anything they could. Cost per night was a great value. We extended a day twice.

    Good place close to Hiroshima station as well as the tram easily taking you to both Miyajima and the Peace Memorial in no time respectively. For the price this place was really worth it and I don't have any major complaints. The only thing would be that there isn't really any designated space for luggage. The room wasn't full when I was there so it was no problem for me, but I can see it being a problem with everyone's bags all over the floor.
