Property Description

Hiroshima Hostel EN is a hostel with a bar / izakaya at ground level. It was created with the intention to connect people, be they travelers or locals looking for a drink and a good time.


The hostel is located on the second floor of EN and offers beds in a traditional Japanese style, offering foreign visitors a part of Japanese culture and Japanese guests a reminiscent feeling.

We offer a mixed dormitory, female-only dormitory and a private room that fits up to 3 guests.
Every bed in the dormitories has its own private space and is closed off by a traditional noren. Created in Hiroshima, the tatami flooring is both sturdy and comfortable at the same time. On top is a futon to experience the true way of Japanese sleeping. It is said that this type is especially good for your posture and back.
A personal safety box is also found inside and is equipped with a lock.

The private room is made in a traditional Japanese style. Tatami flooring and futons to sleep on. The private room is ideal for families traveling together or guests looking for some more privacy.

The common space has tatami flooring section where guests can relax and hang out. Try some origami, read a book or have a chat with some of your fellow travelers.
There is a refrigerator to store your food or drinks.

Facilities consist of 2 restrooms, 2 showers, 4 sinks, hairdryers and rental towels, toothbrushes, etc.


The bar / izakaya is open in the evening from Thursdays till Monday* and serves local drinks and food from the Hiroshima area. Try some smoked venison, wild board frankfurter and many more special dishes.
We also have a good selection of local and nationwide sakes and rotate our selection based on the season and newly found gems. Other special drinks include wine from Miyoshi and craft beer from Kure.

Guests staying at the hostel get a free “Welcome” drink every night they stay over, so they can just sit back and relax or start a conversation with the staff or some other patrons at the bar. Whenever it’s possible we like to eat together with our guests and make some special Hiroshima meals like Oyster Hotpot.

* The bar is still open for guests staying at the hostel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. (Drinks only) View House Rules

    I chose this hostel because it is located in Yokogawa which has a Japanese retro vibe. It is very unique compared to other places. There are many little shops in the alleys which visiting some of them was really fun. Also, Yokogawa station is one of the most important stations in Hiroshima as all kinds of means of transportation have a station there; bus, train, and tram. This point made our morning trip to Miyajima very convenient as we took the JR train from Yokogawa station to Miyajima.

    Our stay at EN was wonderful. The staff was welcoming and fun to talk to every day and made great recommendations for okonomiyaki. We enjoyed the welcome drinks each night as well as a few other cocktails at the bar. It was easy to find and accommodations were perfect. We'd definitely stay again.

    This hostel has the best environment! The downstairs is a bar and you get a free drink every night, so every night my friends and I went down and socialized. The staff of the hostel make it super easy to meet new people! They invite you to sit with them and they all speak superb english. This is definitely the place to stay in Hiroshima.

    We loved this Hostel! The staff were so helpful friendly and fun we had an amazing time in Hiroshima and a huge part was this Hostel. The atmosphere was great, we formed a huge group of mixed nationalities and some locals that got together and randomly went to karaoke which is just across the road! The food was very nice. We tried the Oysters, Boar Sausage and the Fried Chicken all I would have again :) Its about a 30min walk by the river to get to the Dome but close to the station otherwise.

    We really enjoyed our stay here, lovely staff who made us feel very welcome. The hostel has a great atmosphere, and they give you a free drink each night! Dinner served at the hostel is great, and close to so many other great restaurants too, staff gave great food recommendations. Great area of Hiroshima to stay in. Beds are traditional Japanese beds, nice air conditioned room, really comfortable. The hostel is very small, not large bathrooms or common area but great restaurant/bar downstairs :)

    Really nice small/cozy hostel which can be sociable in the evenings if you get a good crowd. Free plum wine was yummy and Lopez restaurant nearby was lovely.

    Very good location, really close to a station, which is only 2 stops from hiroshima. Bed was comfortable and staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was a bit lacking but you get a free drink each night you stay. Shower wasnt that great, but still got the job done.

    Average hostel. Pretty small. The common area is an izakaya. I couldn't quite tell who was staff and who was a guest. I had very limited interactions with the staff. Okay wifi and amenities. A short walk from a train station, but no very near any of the attractions. Had a hard time finding somewhere to eat in the area, even with the help of the staff.
