Host was welcoming, friendly and helpful. 4-bed dorm was fine, and the lower bunk was quite spatious with a high ceiling. Showers and toilets were clean. Common area appeared a bit messy though, but it was a Saturday night...

It's fine for what it is I guess. The rooms are cheap but having to pay 100¥ for 5 minutes of shower water is ridiculous. It's also kinda inconveniently located but the cheap price makes up for it I guess. All in all its fine if your desperately looking for a place closeish to Hiroshima station but I'd try my... More

The female mixed dorm is VERY small and there are two bunk beds. Tatami beds, very hard. Almost no place where to put your luggage. Otherwise the facilities are new and the house is pleasant. Good location near the railway station, easy to find. Just follow the instructions.

We stayed at GHL earlier this month after booking via email. It's run by Yasuko Mito, and it is also her home. Her manner is friendly and relaxed, and she hangs out after hours with her guests which is nice. Her English is good too. As a previous reviewer mentioned, front door is locked prior to check in time, which... More

This guest house is very well priced and offers pretty much all you need. You can walk to the city centre in under half an hour and it'll be an extra 10-15 minutes to get to the peace park, the walk is nice enough and allows you to see more of Hiroshima which I liked. The hostel itself is cosy... More

My husband and I just finished travelling around Japan for a month. We spent a couple of nights in Hiroshima and at Guest House Lappy. It was quite inexpensive, seemed new and clean. If you are not an animal person, you may find the resident rabbit not to your liking tho.... but as we love animals, that wasn't an issue... More

Excellent value at Guesthouse Lappy. If you like rabbits, there is one on the ground floor near the common area. He is pretty cute. Mito makes Guest House Lappy a great place to stay. She gave us a cooking lesson in how to make Okonomiyaki the night we got there. The lesson and dinner was 500 yen, which for the... More

Location is great, about 15 minutes walking from central Hiroshima train station. Room was very clean, as most japanese places, and staff was also very helpful. We had a okonomiaky class, which was great because it was the same price as eating in a restaurant, but we learned how to do it, instead! Highly recommend both, the best house and... More

“The mixed dorms were comfortable and had curtain for privacy. The private rooms looked very large (by Japanese standards) and comfortable with futons. The futons on the lower bunds were on tatami mats on the floor.”
