Ask for a bed in the dorm room on level 5
Lucked out and scored the 4 bed dorm on level 5 opposite the roof top terrace. The lift only goes as far as level 4 and you have to take the stairs for the last little bit but for the relative peace & quiet of the top floor it’s worth it. The 4 bed dorm also feels spacious by comparison to those on the lower levels.

Very nice and effective staff who can speak English. The location is convenient, although it takes around 10 minutes to walk from Hiroshima station, it is close to the Hiroden station. Therefore it is still very easy to travel around the city.

K's is a very good place to stay. The staff is welcoming and incredibly helpful. It has a full kitchen, laundry facilities, amenities are available, comfortable beds with cosy fluffy duvet. Clean, quiet and very convenient location just a few minutes walk from street tram or bus and train station. You will not regret choosing K's unless hostel trolls are also staying in your room but that cannot be helped by anyone regardless of what hostel is chosen.

A warm place in the heart of Hiroshima
We came to Hiroshima for 3 nights. Since my partner is traveling on a very low budget, we were looking for a place to stay that would be cheap, clean and nice. We looked for a couple of days and were about to give up and split, when we found the deal in K's house. The place is wonderful. It is located a couple of minutes walk from Hiroshima station and about 10 minutes walk from the Peace park and city center. As for the hostel itself, the staff were super nice and helpful and the check in was smooth and easy. We booked a private room for two and my impression is that we got a bigger room for the same price (there were 3 of each in the closet - towels, futon mattress, duvet, etc.). I was surprise to find out they change the towels everyday.. I did not expect that in a hostel. As for the common area, it was wonderful - lots of movies to watch, board games, books about Hiroshima and even Origami papers and books. The kitchen is great. Fully equipped with everything that is needed to prepare food. There's also all kinds of herbs, spices, Japanese spices and various kinds of tea and coffee. When the 3 nights were over, I returned to Osaka but mu friend stayed for another 3 nights an got a really last minute deal on a bed in girl's dormitory. Excellent place.

Great hostel a short walk from the train station
