    They can communicate with the guests from all over the world, and local people around the hostel. In the heart of Hiroshima, you can feel what happened in the past and learn how they restarted their lives. Also you can enjoy exploring beautiful small islands on the sea, many rivers even in central area, and small mountains everywhere to hike. You can never get bored. Please enjoy this very unique area!

    The hostel is a two minute walk from a grocery store, five minute walk to Peace Park, seven minute walk to Sento (public bath), ten minute walk from downtown, and all the while surrounded by friendly people and lovely scenery.

    I guess you are worrying about the coronavirus stuff...But please don't worry, we will NEVER close this hostel no matter what happens. And the good thing is the current situation in Japan looks a bit better now.

    We get many requests weekly, which is awesome. We enjoy hosting volunteers but we just haven't got enough beds to offer everyone an opportunity. Please apply at least 3 months ahead. Do please check our calendar first. Arranged dates of your stay is usually very far from now, so we consider the communication through smooth messaging is quite important.
