We were given this hotel as an option to stay at the JR station information centre. We didn't realise at the time it was an annex to the Youth Hostel, but don't let this put you off as it was pretty much like a Japanese Business Hotel. Large rooms, comfortable beds, with all the amenities we required [coin laundry]. Short...

I've been here for two nights, this place is very relaxing and centric. I would recommend for its price, for its super bigs bedrooms and is wonderful for visiting all around Hiroshima. The only problem that could say is the curfew time, 1am... But ok for not going to sleep too late :)

This is very convenient for the peace park (a must), so if, like us, you're only in Hiroshima for a quick visit, it is definitely worth staying there. Unfortunately on the night we were there, the restaurant wasn't open, but we found a noodle bar opposite, which was very good.

Thank you for staying with our hotel and we appriciate your good comment. The noodle shop that you found is 'Kara-bu' which is very favorite for local. It's just in front of this hotel. Popular menue is 'Tsuke-men', cold noodle with spicy dip souce. We look forward to welcoming you to Hiroshima again!

This is supposed to be an affordable hostel type of accommodation but, as mentioned by others, this is actually more like a hotel. It is well located within walking distance to the Peace Memorial Park and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a Japanese style family room which was spacious but I did find the mattress...

We only spent one night in Hiroshima. Got to the train station early and took the 25 minute bus ride to the Aster Plaza. We left our bags with the helpful staff, went for a wander and checked in around 6pm. The rooms are huge for Japan, clean but a little dated. It's definitely not a hostel but the rates...

The Aster Plaza is not really a Hotel, nor is it a Hostel. It appears to be a function centre, that has accommodation on the upper few floors.

“I think the rooms on the top floor [think 9th] are more hotel style than hostel, so make sure you ask for these. I also double checked that we were having a non smoking room and we did.”
