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... More

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... More

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.

I stayed here in August 2015 for a night & I booked a private room online (NOTE: for those who plan to travel to Japan, better to book a room early before your departure for a reasonable price. You might also find difficulties to find a room during peak season or weekend). Located near to Hiroshima Memorial Park, you just... More

We stayed here for one night during our trip to Japan and initially chose J-Hoppers because of the price and location to the Peace Museum.The hostel is easy to get to from the station via the tram and the instructions which came with the hotel booking were perfect. There didn't seem to be many bars/restaurants close to the hostel but... More
