About J-Hoppers Hiroshima Guesthouse
We are the first backpackers Hostel in Hiroshima city. The building used to be a small Japanese style ryokan and we started the business in November 2006 after a partial remodelling.
It is the second hostel after Kyoto managed by J-Hoppers Ltd.
A 5-minute walk to Peace Memorial Park and a 10-min walk to World Heritage A-bomb Dome. Also nearest tram (streetcar) stop is a 3-min walk.
Although we are located in a very convenient area near the downtown (5-10 min walk), it is very quiet around the hostel as it doesn't face a large street.
-Guest rooms and common area-
Most of our guest rooms are Japanese style with traditional tatami mats. Every room is air-conditioned and puffy Japanese style futon sets are installed. We have some twin rooms and 1 triple room.
We also have two mixed dorm rooms with 4 bunk beds and one Japanese style female dorm room with 4 futon sets.
A shower room and a toilet are not in a guest room. Toilet rooms are on every floor and 4 common shower rooms can be used for 24 hours.
Self-catering kitchen with tableware, cooking utensils and various kind of seasoning and Dining/Living room are open for 24 hours, too. Many of our guests buy foodstuff at the nearest supermarket and enjoy cooking. In Living room, you can watch some English channels, enjoy some sorts of games and playing guitar, if you are a musician.
We also have a nice patio where you can sit and smoke. The rooftop terrace is a perfect place to have beers (from a beer vending machine in the kitchen) with your travel fellows (open 9:00-21:00).
