I felt immediately at home here and was so sad to leave after 3 nights. I felt like a friend not just a guest and had an amazing time meeting the owner, her friends and other guests. Kayo, the owner, makes an effort to truly connect with every guest and does everything she can to make their stay amazing. She went above and beyond in helping me search for my family history in Hiroshima. She even invited me to join her in the cheering section at a Hiroshima Carps baseball game where I learned the team chants and songs.

If you are a traveller looking for a more satisfying experience than your average hostel, please come here. Chat with Kayo, meet her other interesting guests, and you will not want to leave.

Excellent for those who love a homey atmosphere, which goes perfectly with the culture of Hiroshima. Its facilities are what you'd expect from a normal house in Japan, and its location in a quiet and safe neighborhood adds to its charm.

What separates this hostel from the others (and what makes it a home) is the hospitality of the host, Kayo. She engages each guest in a genuine way, which made our stay feel very comfortable and enjoyable.

Highly recommended.

Only stayed for a night and it was really crowded since it was a holiday, yet Kayo was still able to accommodate all of us. She's very helpful and I felt right at home. Would definitely stay over again :D I already miss her~~ Might be tricky to find the place at first, but that's just because I'm pretty bad with directions (Shrug)

We stayed here for 1 night.
We loved the atmosphere and really felt home in Kayo's house. And it's a real Japanese house!

We learned to write our names in japanese and calligraphy, we even learned how to use a japanese keyboard on a smartphone!

We loved our stay in this cute japanese house which is really clean and close to the trainstation and streetcars at Nishi-Hiroshima station.

The guest house has a great atmosphere, close to the train station that runs between Miyajima and downtown Hiroshima. Kayo is helpful and goes out of her way to ensure that guests are happy and have the information they need to get out and enjoy some activities. She introduced us to a wonderful izakaya nearby. She has a great selection of games for a night in too. I would recommend this place to anyone.
