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!

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!

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!

I have been staying there for 3 nights 2 days. It was a very nice and cozy hostel, where the owner was really nice in introducing areas around and worth to go. And the atmosphere and style was really lovely and comfortable. Besides the size of the space, everything is perfect. Highly recommended

Masa-san is really awesome! He showed me places around Hakata and helped me out when I arrived and when I left. This hostel is really great!

A great, new hostel in Fukuoka. A bit of a walk from Hakata, but it's close to one of the subway lines, which is great. The place is tiny, but what else would you expect in Japan? Loved my stay, just wish there were more to do in the area.

We loved to stay at Hakata Gofukucho Hostel Takataniya. Frankly speaking, for the first time we worried about sleeping at a box-style domitory. The bed looked uncomfortable. But it didnot take long time to figure out the style of bed keeps better privercy. We were satisfied with the hostel. All staff of the hostel are very freindly. No diffiulties to comunicate with them. They can speak in English, so easy to get imformations we needed.

Really informative staff, although this was only a 1 night stay I actually went back for a few more nights. Easy to get to from the bus/train station, cubes are great, peaceful and the breakfast is good quality.
