Housed in a former ryokan, J-Hopper Hiroshima was one of the first backpacker hostels in Hiroshima. Most of our guest rooms are Japanese-style with traditional tatami mats and futons, although we also have dormitories with bunk beds. All rooms are air conditioned with shared bathrooms.

We are located in a quiet area just a 5-minute walk from the Peace Memorial Park and 10 minutes from the World Heritage A-bomb Dome. Our nearest tram stop (Dobashi) is 3 minutes away with direct access to Miyajima Island and Itsukushima Shrine (approximately 45 minutes). We are a 7-minute walk from the town centre and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

Facilities at our hostel include a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room, a patio and a roof terrace. Private rooms have free internet access (please supply your own ethernet cable) and WiFi is available in the lobby and common room.
