Hostelz.com's Review
Backpackers Hostel K's House Hiroshima is the Hiroshima city branch of the popular hostel company K's. Like all the other K's, it offers a clean, friendly, and safe place to stay with affordable accommodation. The staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about tourist sights within Hiroshima and the surrounding area. There's also a very helpful board with many activities, route, and trip suggestions that can really help plan out a trip.

The Location

K's House is located in a residential area of downtown Hiroshima, an eight-minute walk to the JR train station. The station has local and inter provincial trains, bullet trains, buses, and a forty-five-minute airport shuttle bus that leaves very regularly at a reasonable price.

K's house is also located about a twenty-minute walk or ten-minute tram ride to the main shopping, restaurants, and entertainment district. A thirty-minute walk or fifteen-minute tram will take you to Hiroshima's most visited and important tourist site, the Peace Museum and park dedicated to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are clean and comfortable. They feature below bed storage/locker to maximize room space. Each bed has its own reading light and electrical socket. The bathrooms and showers are common Japanese style (that's right, heated toilet seats) and are maintained at a good standard of cleanliness. The showers have a small foyer, which allows you to keep your clothes dry and have a comfortable changing area. The showers have hostel-supplied bottles of soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

Common Spaces

K's House offers a small but comfortable common area with small kitchen. The lounge has a few chairs, tables, and couches and is a good place to socialize with other guests. The kitchen is basic but does offer free tea and coffee as well as a vending machine with beer, soda, and juice. There is also a small rooftop patio that is an enjoyable place to have a beer (summer only). The hostel has do-it-yourself laundry -- the price you pay includes the washing machine, dryer, and free laundry powder.

Summary

K's House Hiroshima upholds the reputation of the K's House brand. We recommend staying at this -- or any -- K's House for a friendly, safe, and enjoyable stay.

Hostelz.com Guest Reviews
5   Hostels don't get much better. This place, unlike many hostels has cleanliness and facilities on par with an actual Hotel. Only difference is you get room mates Which provides a more social experience Than a hotel. Price is good too. If you're in a town with a K's, it's a wise choice.  , Canada ()
