Overall a fine hostel


this can be used as a great base to go traveling around kyushu, that is what i used it for as was easy to go see places from there.


i enjoy staying at this hostel. it's clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. only one thing about free available PC which is slow speed. location is good actually. and i don't have any problem for finding out the hostel because i took the bus directly from airport which is just 4 bus stop.....it's so convenient !!! wanna stay here again if have chance.


Stinky in the room.


Professionally ran, very clean and affordable.


Dorm is a shoe box with four creaky beds cramped in, no character, staff not very friendly. Real downer.


Nice staff and good value. But not enough showers, having to go 3 floors down to shower is too much in my opinion. But other than that a very good Hostel!


had a lovely stay. everything was great, clean environment, fun and kind staff, great atmosphere and peaceful at night. the hostel was hard to find at first but the locals are very kind and helpful.


Really friendly and helpful staff. On the top of that good values in terms of money. A bit far from Hakata Station. However I rented a bike and it made my day. Basically I just went around the city by bike


Just stayed one night after a late flight into Fukuoka. Our experience was fine, but during the night we heard a guest arguing with what sounded like a staff member for being too loud night after night. I hadn't noticed any noise before the argument, but it didn't really affect my stay at all.

the room is very tiny, stayed in 4 bed mixed and you cannot even walk to your bed with a backpack on bc you have to squeeze between 2 beds.. other than that the wifi worked, there's a locker to put your day bad in, showers were nice, common room downstairs also nice..the location is kind of far is you want to go out to a bar or walk through downtown..


Definetely a good stay. If i end up in Fukuoka again i will definetely stay in this hostel again.


We booked here because the sister hostel in Kyoto was amazing!!! But this one in Fukuoka is not as food as the one in Kyoto. The location is not the best.


Great staff, great people, good location, value for money, convenient and comfortable. Easy transport to Hakata JR Station by Bus only Y100 or Taxi only around Y600.


The hostel located in a quiet area which also is within walking distance to hakata station. Beds are clean. I enjoyed my three days stay here and I will pay a visit again if I go to Fukuoka.


There is BOTH "International Hostel Khaosan Fukuoka" (IHK) AND "Khaosan Annex" (KA). KA is the ONLY result you get when searching for "Khaosan Fukuoka" on Google Maps (just 750 meters from Hakata station). IHK though is 1.2 km from Hakata st., and far from nearest subway. Entering the address on Google Maps locates just the block. They should have the location on Google Maps fixed, period. Showers: cramped, water stream too strong, curtain damaged. Slippers: stink. Rooms: bed creaks a lot.


Stayed for one night and enjoyed our time here. Staff were well-informed and helpful. Facilities were good and clean. Atmosphere at night was great and we had great chat with fellow travellers. Would stay again!


i book twin room when open the door i just have space to put my 2 luggage . no space to walk. like a khaosan tokyo. the location was bad so long 1 km from hakata station. if you have alot of shopping it was bad to walk back to hotel it lost your power . if you pay more 10 usd yopu can find better hotel around Hakata station.


International Hostel Khaosan Fukuoka is very nice. I booked a 4-person mix bedroom at the beginning but their staff helped me to upgrade it to 2-person bedroom without requesting additional fee. The location of the hostel is a little far away from the nearest railway station but the it is acceptable. Most importantly, staffs and travellers are from all over the world and we stay in one hostel. It likes a small international village with delighting and harmonious atmosphere.

This hostel is not bad to stay if you don't have the big luggage and mind for walking 15 mins. The thing I like here is Hotto Motto (Japanese hot and fast meal) and Lawson (convenient store) nearby the location. And if you planning for having day trip in other city. This hostel is near the HAKATA station where you have to take outbound train. Quite convenient but a bit far from subway and station.
