A lovely and social hostel. Beds were comfortable, the staff were so friendly and helpful. Will go out of their way to help you. Facilities are clean. There is free drip coffee and tea. The communal area is cute, there is so much information in the hostel about the area which is useful. It's about a 3km walk away from... More

I only stayed at K's House Hiroshima for one night. The host at check-in was great and held my bag for me so i could head to Miya-jima (highly recommended) after I arrived from Osaka. Check-in was a breeze and I was quickly on my way. I returned a bit late after spending a little too much time making friends... More

Stayed in the 4 bed female dorm for a total of 3 days. The room was a good size, with spacious under bed lockers big enough to fit a big suitcase. There were two individual showers and two toilets on the floor I stayed on. The reception staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the surroundings area. The laundry facilities... More

We spent two nights here in a family room that was clean, but slightly worn and on the small side for 2 adults and 1 child. The mattresses were comfortable, but we could have used more and thicker pillows. Good A/C. The shared shower was cramped, but worked very well and was clean, with good water pressure, shampoo and soap... More

We would recommend. Worth paying for a private room here, even having to pay for 4 people when there were only two of us significantly cheaper than... More

We stayed for one night at this hostel. It's quite close to Hiroshima station, which easily can be reached by foot. There's a 7Eleven nearby which is really practical. It's also near a tram station. The staff was very friendly and spoke great english. They had a lot of knowledge of Hiroshima and had recommendations on e.g. restaurants. They also... More

On tripadvisor it has 4.5 out of 5 stars, so I was expecting a lot. In the end it was kinda disappointing compared to my other hostel. The good part was the enthousiasm from the staff. They will do their best for a score. Room is empty and very small for 4 persons. Being placed with a family was sad... More

Stayed here for one night on a flying visit to Hiroshima. Not the best hostel I've ever stayed in but certainly not the worst. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the place was very clean and our tatami room on the top floor was spacious. The only downsides were that the place probably needs a bit of modernisation and... More

Perfectly comfortable one night stay at K's house. The communal facilities are good and there's a lovely roof top terrace. I had a bed in a 4 bed dorm and it would be nice to have a curtain around the bed for a little more privacy. The location is ideal for the JR station and for getting around the city.... More
