The overal experience was good! For 2000yens per person,the location (nishi-hiroshima) is good if you want to visit Hiroshima and Miyajima with your JR pass and you are really 2 minutes from the station! There is also a big sipermarket and a 100 yens shop next door! The rooms are small, it's a bit tricky to fit your luggage but...

Hi fellow traveller! IMPORTANT!: This guesthouse is not in "downtown" hiroshima but more remotely near the nishi-hiroshima JR train station. Abstract: Cheap, small and remote. If You look only for a bed for the night the guesthouse CARPE is a good option. If youre looking for other travelers to go out into hiroshimas nightlife and have some drinks while playing...

This hostel is a basic an very small one. The staff is kind, they even e-mailed us a special link with youtube video how to find them. The place is clean, but the rooms are not comfortable. Bunk beds are without courtains so you have no privacy. The upper bed is very high so you have problems sitting normally if...

This hostel is really small. For all guests there is only one toilet and shower. We did not get any bed linen. And the location is quite far away from center. Next time we would rather choose a cheap hotel for almost the same price.

Lovely guest house, every one met in the living room each night. Very welcoming, very difficult to find. It is not from hiroshima. Station it's the nisha (sp) hiroshima you want . Then just walk across the railway bridge and you can see it I in a cad park. Walk a bit turn left, peer down corridors and you'll see

This is a basic backpacker's house for a great price and located close to a train station. Kayo is a very kind and attentive host and will make sure you get the most out of your time in Hiroshima. She helped run a small haiku poetry party at my request, which was a ton of fun!

I stayed at Guest House Carpe for just one night, but it was a relaxing stay. The owner, Kayo, is always around to keep her guests company and hand out tips on where to visit (and her English is top-notch, too). Accommodation consists of comfortable, air-conditioned bunk beds; the bathroom and shower is like that of a house. While not...

The host was super nice, giving us tips and always making sure, that we enjoy our stay, Location is ok, only 3 minutes walk to the train station from where you have direct connection to the most important sights of the city. I would defenitly come back here!

I have stayed there for a night only. Do not expect any facilities like hotel but you can expect a cordial stay and Kayo is really eager to help you for anything you want. It is very conveniently located just 2 stops later from Hiroshima station. If you do not need luxury but want to pass a relaxing time in...
