This hostel is really cute! The complementary breakfast is really nice. I bought a towel for 200 yen and it is perfect for travel, dries really fast. The dorm I stayed in was "wooden capsule" style. The guest area is a little small but there is always coffee and tea if you would like some. Nice place!
This was a lovely small hostel - people cleverly packed in, but you feel like you have plenty of space once inside your 'bed room'. The free breakfast was good and a nice touch. Very friendly and helpful staff. We were able to borrow two bikes free of charge for the day, which was great. No lockers but front door security is good.
The owner seemed a bit shilly-shally, uninterested, even nervous . It was not like that I felt welcomed with open arms. Breakfast was solide, no atmosphere at all, but clean. Security is allright. There are lockers and he is the only person with the keys. If you are returning late from sightseeing and he is not available, you have no acces to your stuff. Its not that convenient in my opinion. All in all cheap and allright.
On first sight the hostel (as well as Fukuoka itself) may appear rather unspectacular, though the building in a way looks very special. Still dorms and the small lounge/breakfast-room are both clean and cosy and one cannot but adore this hostel (and fukuoka). Big recommendation!
Very nice hostel. It has a good atmosphere and great free breakfast. I'd definitely stay again. It's walkable from Hakata Station, but a little far with a bag so I might take cab or the bus (bus is only 100 yen but its a bit hard to figure out which one to ride from Hakata Station.) The owner is nice and speaks a little English. After hours you can get into the hostel with a code. Also the bed layout is ... interesting. They are kind of like cubicles, or like a capsule hotel (maybe a bit wider).
A pretty small hostel dictated by the narrow form of the building it takes up. Near enough the metro system and the rest of the city, staff were good. Also not that far from the ferry terminal if you're heading to Korea. Fairly quiet while I was there.
