This hostel was in a great location to visit the sites of Hiroshima and close to public transport. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. We didn't use the communal areas but the bathroom facilities were clean and well stocked with amenities. We had a private tatami room with futons that we're very comfortable. It was the first...

Not bad! Easy to walk to nearby sites. Directions on website are a little confusing. Rooms were a little hot and stuffy. Showers and bathroom facilities were nice. Storage for bags before and after check out.

Stayed at J-Hoppers with a friend for one night. Location: GREAT Easy to get to from Hiroshima station on the street car plus short walk. Perfect location for walking to the Peace Memorial Museum & Park (500m), as well street car stops. There were lots of restaurants in walking vicinity of the hostel (Hostel also has a great map indicating...

I've had my fair share of bad and good hostel experiences. J-Hoppers definitely fits into the latter category. The hostel's location is perfect for sightseeing around Hiroshima. The staff was incredibly friendly as well. Even when traveling during the busiest time in Japan (cherry blossom season), the hostel never felt too crowded. The facilities were immaculate and the rooms were...

J-Hoppers Hiroshima was a great place to stay. It is in a good location, close to the Peace park and in a very walkable neighbourhood. We found it very comfortable and communal. Our mixed dorm was divided into comfortable little pods which felt quite private. The communal room was comfortable and very welcoming with lots of travellers using it. Free...

Comfortable self-contained bunks more spacious than normal hostel beds, plenty of room to keep your bags next to you without having to sleep on them, several outlet plugs next to each bed, curtains for privacy. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the kitchen/lounge/common area is a great place to cook, eat and chat to your fellow travellers. Super convenient...

J. Hoppers was a choice made after 2 days in Hiroshima, and unable to find a hotel on a Saturday night, which was reasonably priced. We have used hostels before, and were content with our choice of J. Hoppers. Our two-person tatami room on the fourth floor was spacious enough for 2 persons, sliding glass doors opened out onto a...

I loved being able to walk right down to the Peace Memorial Park, with a ten minute or less walk to both the tram and the Maple Loop Bus. The capsule-style bunks felt very private and cozy and sound didn't leak through from the next bed over. Thank you to the friendly staff who provided local information and was very...

Cosy comfy and great staff with great local knowledge. Right beside peace park which is very somber. Top class hostel also kept very clean. Highly recommended. Would stay again if I find myself in this part of the world.
