    The location is brilliant for Hiroshima. There is free tea coffee and jam and toast in a morning

    Not much not to like. The air conditioning isn't brilliant but it does the job

    The staff is super friendly and helpful. The location is 10 out of 10. I booked it because of the location. The hostel is 2 minutes from the station and almost all the sightseeing spots are whithin the walking distance.

    DON'T book the mixed dormitory in this hostel. It was very uncomfortable, especially because I had the upper bunk bed. First, you have to put on and take off your bedsheets and if you get the upper bed, you are gonna bump in the walls of the bed and the ceiling while doing it. After the whole day of sightseeing, it's the last thing you want to bother with and if you are in the rush to move to the other city in the morning, you don't have time for stripping the bed and sorting the bedclothes. Second, the bed was super noisy, the roommates could hear every single move you make. And the worst thing about the room was the ventilation. The AC was on, but there was no air to breathe that made me wake up every hour during that night and the room was just half-booked. By the way, the shower rooms are mixed too. There is a separate women bathroom, but there is only ONE shower room.

    The service was nice, they even let us in the room earlier than regular check-in time. The rooms were very clean and nice (like on the pictures) and we had a private bathroom. Cosmetics and towels were provided, there was a hairdryer, a fridge and a television in the room. There is the possibility to have breakfast at the hotel in the entrance area, but we did not go for it.
