Great location, less than 5 minutes from train station, 2 minutes walk to ferry crossing to Miyajima. Nice common area. Showers and toilets were clean. Bed was reasonably comfortable. Staff were very enthusiastic and spoke very good English. I appreciated the breakfast (extra) in the morning. Emergency exit light in the dorm was right in my face.

We were given a "japanese" room that turned to be a big grey cell with several futon in the floor, cold and ugly (we booked for some bunk beds). Few showers for many guests. No privacy at all in the whole hostel. We won't reccommend staying there unless you don't have any other option or you really need a cheap...

I understand hostels can't always help if you can't arrive before 45 min after check in time, but the response rate on e-mail from this company is just awful. I asked them for an answer and waited several hours, not sure whether I had a bed for the night or not. Stressful, annoying and unprofessional.

We've stayed here for two nights. The common areas are really nice with a busy bar and a relaxed rooftop. The dorms are pretty big so my friend found it hard to get some good sleep. I had no problem with it. The showers and toilets are clean and the bed sleeps ok. It's right beside the ferry so with...

This hostel is excellent! There are so many facilities, such as bar, a roof terrace, loads of social areas. I stayed here for one night, and i would have stayed for two if i could have cancelled my other hostel. As soon as I arrived, I got a warm welcome from two chirpy staff, who greeted everyone in a similar...

This hostel has a fun and friendly atmosphere and we regretted not staying here for more than one night. If you’re looking for somewhere calm and quiet this is not the hostel for you...when the hostel advertises earplugs for ¥100 you know it attracts a younger crowd. That being said we had a great night sleep....with the earplugs! Just an...

This hostel is super close to the ferry that takes you to Miyajima Island. It is also close to the train station, about a 3 minute walk. I met some good friends at the hostel and the bar is a nice place to hang out. Yes, it is not as big as some hostels and can possibly get cramped if...

I stayed here with friends for one night in July so we could go to Miyajima but I wish we could have stayed longer. The building itself is very good (incredibly close to the station and right beside the ferry. You can see the tori on Miyajima from the hostel roof). It's the staff that are truly outstanding though. From...

It's quite new and good design. I love the common area downstairs. Easy to find. Very good location to travel to Miyajima and Hiroshima. Reasonable price. The staff was helpful, friendly. No problem to communicate English with them.
