This place best asset is the localisation, just few minutes away from the Dome. The stuff is nice and helpful, fluent english. Lot's of foreigners so there is an opportunity to chat at the little smoking terrace. My room had new tatami so I got to smell the original tatami fragrance which was nice but maybe strong for others. Świetna...

The room - the little shoebox space that I got was quite comfortable. It's got enough space that I could kneel and not bump my head, and also to keep my gear next to the bed without feeling like I had to squeeze my way in. Place is quite clean overall.

This hostel is like JAPAN, clean, beautiful and peaceful. Moreover, it's well located. Very close to the A bomb site. ....And not too expensive as well. Very good deal. Oh yes, the team is very friendly :-)

Came here for one night and stayed in the female dormitory. The staff didn't seem keen to talk to the guest or help. Tried to ask them what they recommend in Hiroshima, but didn't react. The hostel is a 5 minute walk to the peace park. The bathroom was very clean and the bed was ok. If you're only staying...

New, well thought out and well located. Loved the tatami mat room, clean toilet areas, good simple bathroom. Liked the location, the staff. Didnt like the heavy rock music in reception (to be fair, we couldn't hear it from our room). About 5 minutes walk to Peace Park and museum.

We stayed here for one night. The facilities were basic and the futons were comfortable. But our room was on the 4th floor and there was no lift. For a guest house with shared bathroom and toilet and basic futons and no lift the place was expensive. If you are a solo traveller it makes sense. If you are more...

Well located, no.2 or no.6 streetcar from station and get off at Dobashi. Just a minute or two walk from there. Receptionists were exceptionally friendly and spoke good English and were happy to give restaurant and other local recommendations. Very easy walk to Peace Park. Stayed in Tatami room - small but plenty space for bags as long as you...

We stayed here for two nights in a private japanese room. Hostel has a nice central location. Close to a tram station and the Peace Park. Just arround the corner is a supermartket 24/24. The staff is very helpful. The bathroom facilities are very clean and very well maintained. Also very cheap and easy to do your laundry.
