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).
great space, modern, urban wooden capsule hostel, great size, privacy curtain, light, outlets, wifi, quiet, facilities with lots of amenities including soap and shampoo, very clean, a.c., awesome and cute hostel, i def recommend. 10 minute walk to entertainment. free breakfast, very helpful.
The only problem to me is there is no any locked box. So I need to worry about valuable stuffs when I am going out. But the host is really friendly and willing to help anything if he could. I love the female dorm
I loved this hostel! Capsule bunk bed style and key for female dormitory. Not a lot of space in the room but it was ok and the bathroom was very clean. Yummy breakfast every morning (this is the only hostel in Japan were I stayed which provided free breakfast!). Very easy to find and well located. WONDERFUL STAFF! He would ask everyday about where you'd been, where were you going next, giving some helpful advice, really caring about his guests! Will stay here again for sure!
Very comfortable place. Staff provide great help. I am impressed how efficiently they use space.
Nice place right next to a temple! The staff gave me lots of good advice. The breakfast was good although the common area is a little small. There wasn't much interaction between guests though. Also after checking out I asked if I could hang out in the common area for a little while. I felt I was kind of rushed out.
Enjoyed my stay, friendly staff!

Small but Warm Hostel! Excellent Location! Just a few minutes walking from Metro Exit! Typical Japanese style, everything is clean and tidy!
We enjoy our common lounge area filled with gentle jazz music during our break in the hostel. Owner it's the only staff and he suggested few spots for meal which value for money. Capsule type bunk bed having difficulty on cleaning job & dust flying in d air when changing bed sheet & pillow.
The hostel is realy central and you can reach canal city, market street and business area by feet! The hostel is a little bit too expensive and the reception is closed from 11am-3pm what is a little bit annoying! Nearly no people at the hostel so boring to stay there for me! But it's super clean and a lot of comfort!
I would come back. Close to train- and metrostation and pier.
The owner, Takatani-san is my hero in Japan. He is a really nice guy and got great advice on the city. When I lost my wallet in the city during my 1-day visit, he did everything in his power get my wallet back. Without him I'm sure I'd never got the wallet back (found 4 days later). He even offered to lend me some money so I could eat for the day. Thank you so much!

Staff was very helpful! Facilities were clean and comfortable, enjoyed the deco.
This Hostel is very different in a good way. It's owner have put a lot thoughts to this place to make it a very special place. Very clean, with limited space but smart design. Friendly and helpful owner spoke good English. I enjoy my stay in this hostel very much because it not like all the other! I can feel the owner love traveling himself and have been to many places.
Hostel with great atmosphere, close to downtown Fukuoka. Excellent place to stay to explore the city.
We really loved staying at this hostel. The owner was incredibly personable, and the facilities spotless. The free breakfast was a nice touch, and perfectly sufficient. It was also very quiet, which is right up our alley. If you are looking to stay up late drinking and making noise, your' better off looking elsewhere. My only complaint (and this is a tiny nitpick) is that the wi-fi upstairs in the bunks is very weak and slow (though it still technically works). We will stay here again next time!
Nice hostel to try out the capsule experience. Great staff, very nice and helpful.
