I stayed in a shared room for 2-nights. It's a great affordable option, the staff were very helpful at check-in with neighborhood recommendations. My bed was private (more private than typical hostels), with clean sheets and very clean. The full kitchen and common area had everything you'd need to prepare a meal. With the location near Hiroshima's local trolly car...

My wife and I are traveling around Japan and found J-Hoppers on a quick hotel search. We definitely don't regret it. Let me explain the positive points: Staff was well informed and friendly. The rooms were clean and adequate. The kitchen was large, clean and well provisioned. We are traveling on a budget and going out to eat constantly in...

The "J-Hoppers" chain is spread out across five towns in southern Japan, including Hiroshima, and it is also likely the cheapest accommodation one will find in any of these towns. However, given the sparsity of them, it seems that the "discount" one gets from visiting them several times becomes slightly redundant; if not purely a long-term goal. The Hiroshima branch...

The beds in the dorms are brilliant - very private (walls on 3 sides like a capsule) and super spacious, with enough room to take your backpack in there. Extremely clean as well, and great location for sightseeing.

We had a poor internet connection in our room and we could hear ever little movement in the other rooms but apart from that it was very clean, comfortable and friendly staff. There were explanatory signs in and outside of the rooms in many languages which was very helpful. Would reccomend if in need of a cheap place to stay...

This place best asset is the localisation, just few minutes away from the Dome. The stuff is nice and helpful, fluent english. Lot's of foreigners so there is an opportunity to chat at the little smoking terrace. My room had new tatami so I got to smell the original tatami fragrance which was nice but maybe strong for others. Świetna...

The room - the little shoebox space that I got was quite comfortable. It's got enough space that I could kneel and not bump my head, and also to keep my gear next to the bed without feeling like I had to squeeze my way in. Place is quite clean overall.

This hostel is like JAPAN, clean, beautiful and peaceful. Moreover, it's well located. Very close to the A bomb site. ....And not too expensive as well. Very good deal. Oh yes, the team is very friendly :-)
